Get your email inbox into shape with a series of intuitive swipes and gestures
Looking at your email inbox can sometimes be a daunting affair. It only takes a couple of days of not keeping a close eye on the messages piling up in there to turn it into a quagmire of unread adverts, unchecked work contacts and ignored missives from friends. Luckily, there’s an app that can help you get your hundreds of unread messages down to zero in no time flat.
Although it’s a bit more complicated than just tapping ‘mark all as read’. The app in question is called Mailbox. It’s from the company behind Dropbox, and is a clever and simple way to take back control of your email. With a few simple swipes and some clever automation you can make sure you’re reading the mails you need to read, and getting rid of some of the chaff that can build up before you’ve even noticed it’s there. The app is free to download, and once you’ve grabbed it it’s time to start getting to grips with that messy inbox.
