E-mail has become a clunky medium, often requiring significant time and sorting from even the most tech-savvy user. Enter Mailbox, an app that redefines what it means to organize your email. Mailbox takes the clutter out of e-mail, displaying messages in a chat-like fashion that makes scanning entire conversations easy. And for busy e-mail users, Mailbox allows users to hit “snooze” on e-mails they don’t want to see at the moment—and deal with it when they have time.
