Mailbox, the popular third-party Gmail experience for iOS, has been updated with a couple of cool new features. Following the recent addition of portrait view for the iPad, there's now access to a landscape view on the iPhone so you can read your messages in the wider view. Also, with support for alias accounts now added, Gmail's "send as" feature opens up in Mailbox.

Aliases can be added by heading into settings, and looking for the "Gmail Aliases" menu item. Once added and verified, you should see an option to choose these accounts when composing an email. The omission of alias accounts from the outset is something that prevented me from adopting Mailbox as a daily driver, so now it's there I might have to go and take another look. Anyone else been holding out for this?
