Dropbox acquires the mail client for iPhone Mailbox

Genbeta> The VergeMás información
We’ll have to start calling this the “Sparrow effect” or something. What happens when you have a mail client that everyone loves? Well, he’s acquired by a big company, naturally. The iPhone Mailbox client , which we reviewed at Apple some time ago and which is causing a stir because of the large number of people who want to try it out, has been bought by Dropbox .

With this acquisition, Mailbox is getting rid of an enormous problem: that of achieving a sufficient infrastructure to be able to continue growing given the great demand . Dropbox is a company that bases all its services entirely on the cloud, so it will have plenty of resources to be able to scale this iPhone mail client properly.

Mailbox makes it clear that the customer is not going to be abandoned as it has been with Sparrow: it will continue to be present, accepting places in its controversial queue in order to use it and now it will do so more quickly thanks to the help of Dropbox. What intrigues me most is: does Dropbox have any plans to create its own mail service? At the moment we can only hope.
