Mailbox For Mac Now Available For Download In Beta


MailBox Mac

The makers of the popular email app for iOS device, Mailbox, have today released the first public beta for the Mac version of the app for download. While the download package is available to everyone, the beta itself requires a beta coin in order to be able to use. Users who have not already requested a beta coin can do so through the app download page.

The Mac app obviously takes strong design and functionality influences from the iOS version of the app, with an aim for users to reach ‘Inbox Zero’. This can be accomplished by either dealing with, archiving, deleting or snoozing an email. Since the app itself is owned by Dropbox, there is tight Dropbox integration, with draft versions of emails synced via Dropbox itself.

The iPhone 6 will be released to the public on Tuesday, October 14, according to a new report from MacRumors.

Rumor: Next Generation iPad Mini Will Be Significantly Lighter And Thinner


iPad mini
A new report is today suggesting that Apple will be going beyond the thin and light construction of the Retina Display iPad mini and will be shrinking the device even further.

The report touts the possible name for the device as the iPad mini Air.
