Taskbox, the iPhone mail client that aims to help you get to zero inbox while turning emails into tasks, has dropped to Free on the App Store for the very first time. First launched last October, this well received and ever improving mail app has a gesture system much like Mailbox, in that you can simply swipe left or right to perform actions: add task, complete, archive and delete. And similar to Mail Pilot, Taskbox lets you easily create todo lists out of your never ending inbox.
What makes Taskbox versatile is how it gives its users plenty of options to follow up with their emails. Swiping right on an email on the main screen adds it as a Task, which can then be given a priority, due date and a contact can even be assigned to it so you can keep track of who’s doing what. A handy Dashboard screen lets you see the aforementioned info at a glance. Emails can also be sorted by Priority, Due date and Received date, and they can be updated by dragging and dropping the items how you see fit. And one of my favorite features in Taskbox is the quick response button. Whether you’re replying to a contact or creating a new email, the (customizable) quick response templates has preset text that you can re-use over and over again depending on the situation.
It should be noted that Taskbox currently supports Gmail, GoogleApps, Yahoo, iCloud, and AOL accounts only. As for Push notifications, they are only available for Gmail and Google Apps accounts.
Taskbox is certainly worth checking out, especially now that it’s free (likely for a very limited time), and not to mention if you’d like a better way to manage a hectic inbox (or inboxes) on your iPhone.
