Mailbox Updated With iPhone Landscape Mode And Gmail 'Send As' Alias Support
The popular Dropbox-acquired iOS email app Mailbox has just been updated with landscape mode for iPhone and support for Gmail's "send as" alias feature. Released last February as an app designed for iPhone and iPod touch only, Mailbox was finally updated with native iPad compatibility last month. It made the jump to iPad sans support for portrait orientation, but an update issued last week rectified that omission. Now, it's Mailbox's iPhone and iPod touch version to gain support for an alternate orientation. Originally optimized, of course, for portrait viewing, Mailbox for iPhone and iPod touch now allows for landscape viewing as well. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. As mentioned, Mailbox has also been updated with Gmail "send as" alias support, letting you send messages with another of your email addresses listed as the sender instead of your Gmail address. If you use aliases in Gmail, you can now enter them in the Mailbox's account settings screen to use them within the app. Note that all aliases must already be verified in Gmail itself. Otherwise, sent emails will still originate from your default account. The newly updated Mailbox is available in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.
