Mailbox App For iPhone Launched

Mailbox review by Shawn Blanc:

For his review at The Verge, Ellis Hamburger titled his article: “Mailbox just fixed email on the iPhone — How a startup outdid both Apple and Google in one fell swoop”. That is a massive statement right there. Got iPhone email troubles? Not any more.

Sadly, it’s only GMail, and even more sadly, it requires a backend server component, which they need to get to the people. Currently I’ve got 393,785 people in front of me, and in the 2 minutes since I installed the app, 440 people are behind me in line. No 450, no 460, 540…. lets just say lots.

700 now, and growing by about 5 per second, based on my very unscientific “one one thousand, two one thousand” method.

870 now. I’ll let you go.
