Dropbox To Shut Down Mailbox and Carousel App

Dropbox has announced that it plans to shut popular stand alone apps Mailbox and Carousel in 2016. This announce comes as a shock as Mailbox has been herald as the best email app for iOS. Dropbox created Carousel as its own stand alone photo app and acquired Mailbox in 2013

Mailbox will shut down on February 26th, with Carousel following the next month on March 31st. Dropbox says it’s giving Carousel extra time so that users can download their photos and move them elsewhere if they so choose. “If you have conversations or shared albums you want to save from Carousel, we’ll provide a simple export tool early next year,” the company notes.

Mailbox, though still one of the best email apps for iOS, has seen little to no development over recent months allowing Google, Apple and Microsoft among others to surpass it and build upon the great features once championed by Mailbox users.

Dropbox plans to incorporate the best features of Mailbox and Carousel into its file sharing app.
