Dropbox Drops News of iOS Mailbox Acquisition

Cloud storage juggernaut Dropbox announced Friday that it has acquired the iOS email app Mailbox.

“Like many of you, when we discovered Mailbox we fell in love—it was simple, delightful, and beautifully engineered,” Dropbox founders Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi wrote on their blog today. “Many have promised to help us with our overflowing inboxes, but the Mailbox team actually delivered.”

Putting minds at ease instantly, Dropbox confirmed that Mailbox isn’t disappearing. In fact, it’s only getting better.

“The product needs to grow fast, and we believe that joining Dropbox is the best way to make that happen,” a separate announcement from Mailbox reads. “Plus, imagine what cool things you could do if your Mailbox was connected to your Dropbox…”

We’re all looking forward to making Mailbox even better and getting it into as many people’s hands as possible. There’s so much to do and we’re excited to get started!
