Mailbox iPhone App: Take a Number and Get in Line

by Range

The Mailbox app has finally launched on iOS, but before you start jubilating about how clean your email box will finally be, you’d better download it and start waiting, because the wait to use will be long. Currently, there are over 800,000 users waiting to start using the app. The app provides a new way to access your Gmail on your iPhone.


The Mailbox app uses gestures to make quick work of incoming mail, allowing you to clear out your inbox in a jiffy. This is one of the reasons why I like this app, because if you use the Inbox Zero discipline, you’ll be able to browse through your incoming mail very quickly. The one negative thing is that Mailbox doesn’t support Gmail labels.

The good thing about this staggered release is that instead of costing money, the Mailbox app is free. However you’ll be waiting for a while before you can use it. Cult of Mac has got some estimates on how long the wait will be:

  • 50,000 — 42.7 hours (1.77 days)
  • 100,000 — 85.4 hours (3.56 days)
  • 200,000 — 170.9 hours (7.08 days)
  • 300,000 — 256.4 hours (10.68 days)
  • 500,000 — 427.3 hours (17.8 days)
