For those who did not use: Mailbox is an e-mail client for iOS, Android, OSX, Windows. It was integrated only with Gmail.

The main difference from normal mail klent — use of the principle of 'Inbox Zero' which turns the entering folder into the list of affairs and assumes to aim at holding it empty.

Since February 26 the Mailbox service which once purchased Dropbox is closed

For cleaning of the incoming letter it was possible to brush away to the right or to the left, these gestures appeared then also in other e-mail clients: Mail for iOS, inbox, etc. Nevertheless, implementation of svayp most of all is pleasant to me in Mailbox.

Also for me an opportunity to postpone pisma / tasks for any period after which they appeared in entering again was very important point.

Actually it would be desirable to discuss some alternatives of this service.
It would be very desirable to see the following things:
  • the client for iOS
  • the client for MacOS
  • an opportunity to postpone the letter for a certain term
  • convenient gestures
  • synchronization with Gmail
  • an opportunity to work with Gmail and through web

Update: I will sum up the researches
  1. First place: Inbox
