mailboxMailbox was today updated to version 1.7, adding support for additional email services like Yahoo, iCloud, me.com, and mac.com. Previously, the Mailbox app only supported Gmail.

Today we're thrilled to announce we've added Mailbox support for Yahoo, iCloud, me.com, and mac.com email accounts. This is a big step for us — we get more requests for Yahoo and iCloud support than for any other feature.

Mailbox remains 100% free, and adding a Yahoo or iCloud email account is just as easy as adding a Gmail account.

Email management app Mailbox was originally introduced in February of 2013 by Orchestra, the developers behind the Orchestra to-do app. Mailbox debuted with novel features like simple touch gestures for email organization and "Snooze" functionality, allowing users to put emails out of sight until a later date.

Mailbox was later purchased by Dropbox in March, and additional functionality like iPad support and Cloud Search was added.

Along with support for iCloud and Yahoo email accounts, today's update also adds background syncing and new app options.

What's New in Version 1.7.0
- Support for iCloud and Yahoo email accounts
- Background syncing
- Option to disable "help me get to zero" banner
- Option to disable swipe to open drawer
- Bug fixes and UX improvements

Mailbox is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

While I admired the idea behind this app, I really don't feel like it's a particular boon to productivity to empty my Gmail inbox.

Really? This app has actually made me way more organized and productive. I now deal with EVERY email I receive instead of leaving them and forgetting about them.

Glad to see the app grow. Excited for a Mac client.

This is totally selfish of me, but I wish they had prioritized the release of a Mac client. I can't wait to have the service on all my devices.

Frankly, 100% free part scares me. I am guessing Mailbox will eventually use the same storage as Dropbox, and thus help Dropbox sell higher capacity plans.

But do I (1) trust Dropbox with email data (I don't particularly trust Apple, Google, and Yahoo! either, but adding another party to the mix can't be an improvement), (2) eventually faced with a dilemma of paying for larger storage plan when many email services offer practically unlimited storage in exchange for ads??
