7 best alternatives you can try

Dropbox recently launched a bomb when it announced that Mailbox is closing. On February 26, 2016, the mailbox cease to exist. The popular email client application on Android and iOS gained popularity thanks to its intuitive swipe interface and email management features. His fresh concept of the zero inbox made sure he got a good fan base. The application even popularized the sliding interactions, which are now implemented in most e-mail applications.

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and we will surely miss Mailbox, but fortunately there are some excellent applications that can replace Mailbox. Well, you should check these mailbox alternatives:

The best mailbox alternatives

1. Outlook

The Microsoft Outlook email application has been earning many favorable comments since the application arrived and deservedly. While it's not the same as Inbox, it's definitely the strongest alternative . Outlook incorporates the same sliding gestures for archiving and postponing that we have come to know in Mailbox. The application facilitates the administration of your email by dividing your emails into "Focused" (important emails) and "others." In addition, the application integrates several services such as Office applications, Calendar and various cloud storage services for attachments.

The best thing about the application is its clean and easy-to-use interface and, unlike Mailbox, which only supports Google accounts and iCloud, Outlook is compatible with most popular email services, such as Yahoo, iCloud, Google, IMAP and, of course, Microsoft accounts.

Availability: Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, Web (Free).

2. Inbox by Gmail

Inbox by Gmail provides a very similar approach to the mailbox. The functionality, including the sliding gestures are very similar, although we liked the Mailbox interface more. It includes most of the functions that we loved about Mailbox, such as snooze, reminders and adds unique functions such as "Packages", which group the electronic mail to facilitate the handling of emails, especially social, promotions, movie tickets, etc. The Gmail client also has a " highlights ", which shows the most important emails from the beginning. While the messy interface of the application, the lack of a unified inbox and only Gmail support can cause problems, it is still an excellent mailbox alternative, since It facilitates the administration of electronic mail.

Availability: Web, Android, iOS (Free).

3. Spark

Spark is our favorite mailbox alternative and that is due to its innovative features and its magnificent interface . The Spark application is the only one that includes short and long Mailbox swipes and you can customize these swipe actions to meet your needs. The iPhone-only application also implements the Mailbox inbox concept, with credentials that tell you the unread count. It also includes the " Smart Inbox ", which is a unified inbox with categorized emails, along with other interesting features, such as posting, sidebar, 3D Touch support, widgets and more.

The popular email client also has calendar integration, cloud service support and receipt reading . Unlike Mailbox, Spark is compatible with most popular email services. Well, you should definitely give Spark a chance and you might even like it more than Mailbox.
