Mailbox

Mailbox, now a part of Dropbox, is a mobile-first inbox that makes processing messages on your phone fast and delightful. It’s how email on the phone should work: Mailbox checks your mail from the cloud and delivers it to your phone with lightning-fast speed. A colorful swipe-based UI makes processing easy, and the “snooze” feature lets you put off messages until later. Currently available for iPhone and Gmail.

Mailbox makes getting to inbox zero - and staying there - a breeze.

Orchestra is an amazing to-do list app that helps you stay organized with reminders, recurring tasks, real-time sync and voice capture. But the real power behind Orchestra is how it connects your colleagues, family and friends to get more done. Chat with your collaborators from inside a task, share an entire list and get real-time status updates. Others don’t even need Orchestra to work with you.

Orchestra is great tool for couples, families and small teams as well as individuals. Get started by setting recurring reminders to pay bills and remember birthdays. Make grocery and chore lists and share them with your spouse or roommate to divide and conquer. Plan an event - a wedding, a potluck dinner or a vacation. Staying organized has never been so easy.
