Mailbox for iOS gains native iPad compatibilityMailbox, the Gmail-based iOS email client that encourages a tidy inbox, was updated on Wednesday with native support for Apple's iPad lineup.
Orchestra, Inc. announced its newly updated app in a concise post to its official blog. Mailbox is available as a free download on the App Store.
"You asked, we listened," the post reads. "Mailbox is now available for iPad, so you can swipe your way to inbox zero on all your iOS devices."
In addition to iPad support, version 1.3 of the http://appleinsider.com/l/?link=Mailbox app also includes bug fixes. The 12.9-megabyte download requires iOS 6.0 or later.
While users who previously attempted to use the software were required to wait for access, a month ago Mailbox became available to all when the reservation system was closed.
At the time it was said that the Mailbox service, which is currently only available to Gmail users, was delivering more than 100 million messages per day. Mailbox developers were confident it would be able to handle the influx of new users, and there have been no indications of downtime since the reservation system was removed.
Under the initial reservation system, Mailbox had filled more than 1 million reservations. The service was acquired by cloud storage giant Dropbox in March for between $50 million and $100 million.
