If you recently heard of the Mailbox app for iPhone and iPod touch but are annoyed of the fact that you will have to bare a reservation system for a few hours or days in order to be able to use the app itself then we have got a good news for you. The developers of the app recently announced that they are dropping the reservation system so users who are new to the app can download it and use it right away without waiting in line for the turn. This has been made possible after 10 weeks of “around-the-clock hard work”. The company says that the Mailbox app service was scaled to deliver 100 million emails a day – an impressive number which according to their statement is still growing.
Mailbox app removed the reservation system because the company now believes that it can handle the new users who sign up for the app while keeping the service up and running for millions already using it.
Along with the removal of the reservation system Mailbox app also received an update in the App Store that brought several improvements to the app. The Mailbox app update brought smarter snoozes, faster swipes, UI improvements as well as bug fixes.
Here’s the change log for version 1.2.0
- Smarter snoozes (adjust based on time of day and week)
- Faster swipes (swipe as many items at one time as you want)
- UI improvements (e.g. double-tap a name bubble to see email address)
- Bug fixes (including swipe-to-open bug) and performance improvements
