Developed by Orchestra, the new app's interface allows users to turn a Gmail inbox time-based "to-do" list, where each message can be "snoozed" for later perusal.
Users can select options such as the "tomorrow" snooze, which will move the message out of the active inbox and resubmit it the next day. Time settings for snoozing messages are fully customizable.
Anyone can download the app for free from the App Store, and users who pre-registered can enter their reservation numbers for first-come, first-served account activation. Users can still sign up within the app, and watch the reservation line in real time.
Why a reservation line? Mailbox relies on servers in the cloud to manage push notifications and saved snoozes. It’s rolling out reservations slowly to keep from getting overloaded while managing initial demand.
