Dropbox announced today that it has acquired Mailbox, the iOS e-mail app that promises users it will simplify their inboxes and get them to that beloved place called “zero new messages.”
The app caused quite a stir when it launched out of private beta for iOS last month, and it still hasn’t yet been made available to all users who want it. Dropbox made the announcement in an official blog post on its website.
“We\’re all looking forward to making Mailbox even better and getting it into as many people\’s hands as possible. There\’s so much to do and we\’re excited to get started,” the post read.
The financial details of the deal are unknown, and so are most of the other details. As of now, it looks like Mailbox will continue untouched as a stand alone app, but future integration with Dropbox’s existing framework isn’t out of the question.
