I hate email again

Email was destroying my life, so I destroyed email.

Back in 2013, I decided I could no longer deal with the flood of email I received every day.

Mailbox, the best email app on the iPhone, is coming to Android and PC

Mailbox is a fantastic app. It’s so great, in fact, that Dropbox spent $100 million to acquire it last year. The Mailbox app helped me destroy email, and for that I will forever be grateful — but there has always been one huge problem with it: there’s isn’t any desktop or Android client. As Dropbox announced on Wednesday, however, that won’t be the case for much longer. More →
