Dropbox to shut down Mailbox and Carousel apps in early 2016
Dropbox is closing the doors of two of its standalone apps, Mailbox and Carousel. The Mailbox email app will shut down first on February 26, 2016, while the photo and video gallery app Carousel will end on March 31, 2016.
Dropbox acquired the Mailbox app in 2013, and later launched Carousel in 2014. In a blog post, the company made the decision to shut down both apps as part of their plan to increase "our team's focus on collaboration and simplifying the way people work together." It added:
The company has set up an FAQ page to help Mailbox users prepare for the shutdown. Carousel users will still be able to check out their uploaded images on the Photos tab views on the Dropbox website and on the Dropbox mobile app.

I never used Carousel, didn't like the way it showed images from all folders in Dropbox, so I use Unbound where you set the default folder. Prior to that I used Loom which was a very promising app, until it was bought by Dropbox, who never incorporated its best features into Carousel, so what was the point in that? Sent from the iMore App
