New and updated apps: Mailbox, App in the Air, BBC Sport and more!


Curious: How many people are still using Mailbox and how's it holding up for you? (Since we had to line up to join, I'm extra curious how many stayed once they got in?)

I started using Mailbox when they came out with the for Dropbox, and I am still using it to this day. I really like the extra features it provides by allowing you to swipe to archive, resend an email at a later time, etc. Of course push email is a must for me. It feels like it should be Apple's stock email program. I will say I have stuck with it through the times when the notifications weren't working that great in iOS 7 and I still find them not working 100% of the time. Not sure why that is so difficult. There are little things which bother me, such as how hard it is to see all of the people on an email string and their email addresses (you have to click on the email after opening it the first time and then click on the email address line to be able to see them.) I love how it combines my multiple gmail accounts into one inbox, much easier to manage. I am one of those people that keeps a very clean and archived inbox with only outstanding items still in there.

Overall I am continuing to use it so I am happy and would recommend it to others.

What made you not continue to use it Rene?

I've moved to Boxer. Basically the same idea, but with way more customization for gestures, and seems to be more stable, at least on the iPhone 5. Plus support for more kinds of email providers.

I'm still using mailbox. It's been very reliable for me. The odd crash when I was in airplane mode but it wasn't that often. I've been looking at boxer but I'm cheap and can't get over the price point.

I used it briefly, but I've since switched back to the default I'm not a power user when it comes to email. I have over 3,300 unread messages in my inbox and it doesn't bother me. I read stuff from people I know, and just ignore crap from businesses I've signed up for rewards cards with, daily account notifications (pre-paid debit card), ads, spam, etc.
most of my inbox is junk in one form or another. I've just learned to ignore it. For the few emails I care about the default app suits my needs, and works better than any 3rd party app I've tried for my needs.
