Popular third-party email client Mailbox has taken a big step forward with the recent update to version 1.7.0. Most importantly, the app now offers support for both iCloud and Yahoo email accounts. According to the Dropbox-owned company, support for those two services has been the most requested feature from users. Another major addition is the ability to background sync so an inbox can always be up to date. And along with the usual amount of bug fixes, there is now an option to disable the “help me get to zero” banner and the swipe to open drawer gesture. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Mailbox can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. Users will need to have iOS 7 installed on their device to use the app. Before the most recent changes, the last major update arrived in September. Version 1.6.0 offered a total remake for iOS 7. A late August update brought some interesting new features, including Chrome integration, cloud searching, and account signatures.
