Mailbox made a big splash on the email news scene back in February when version 1.0 was released. I reviewed version 1.01 on iPhone.AppStorm and was really pleased by how the app worked. Probably the most famous item Mailbox is known for was the infamous queue line, which slowly allowed users access to the app. Some people threw negativity toward the app for this style of release, but I felt it was uncharted territory for a developer to release an app along these lines. No matter what your opinion was, it did show the developer cared about the release experience and kept their servers up and running during the initial launch.

Mailbox was not finished making headlines. Just after being on the iPhone for a month, the Mailbox team announced they were joining Dropbox. Soon after joining Dropbox, Mailbox was able to remove the queue and allow anyone to bask in an empty inbox. One common complaint that has been with the app for the past few months is the lack of an iPad app. Well, Mailbox has finally delivered. Let’s look into why the app made headlines and see if the iPad version lives up to the hype.

I’m not the only iPad user who’s received a ZIP file full of photos over email or been directed to download a RAR file over the Internet.

Archives changes all that, and with compatibility with pretty much every archive type, I can finally get at all those files. How well can Archives really integrate with your iOS workflow? Let’s take a look! (more…)

Evernote is one of the most popular digital notebooks services, and it has been very popular with iOS users for some time now. There have been many complaints (mostly plain text fanatics) about Evernote’s export ability if you choose to leave the service, but I feel that Evernote is better fit as a digital archive rather than an ongoing list of notes. What has brought people to using Evernote in the past is how easy it is to save info from the web for reference and items to remember later. Have a great meal? Save the image into Evernote along with the recipe for when you would like to cook it.

While features are not touted as the main new items in the new Evernote, the redesign is. The old Evernote seemed to suffer from an identity crisis. On iOS, the app was not uniform and looked completely different when using the iPad and iPhone. With the new redesign, the app and service has become more uniform and looks consistent, with extra features on the iPad due to screen real estate. Let’s take a closer look after the jump.  (more…)
