Mailbox comes to iPad, now optimised for the bigger screen

Mailbox is now iPad compatible, so the popular inbox is now optimised for working on your larger Apple device.

The company broke the news with a concise message on its blog, simply saying: "You asked, we listened. Mailbox is now available for iPad, so you can swipe your way to inbox zero on all your iOS devices."

The app, version 1.3, is now available to download from iTunes and apart from iPad compatibility, only lists bug fixes as new to the updated version.

The new layout on iPad makes great use of the space on offer to help you be more productive with your Gmail.

In April the company dropped the waiting list to get access to the Mailbox service, which has been popular with people looking to get their inbox to zero. The meteoric rise of Mailbox saw it gain 1 million users in the first 6 weeks of life, before being snapped up by Dropbox.

Currently the app is only available for iOS, with Android users left scratching their heads and wondering how they're going to quickly tackle their own growing pile of Gmail.

Mailbox 1.3 is available to download now.
