Mailbox, the popular email app from Dropbox, finally supports your tablet almost a year after it first came to Android. If you’ve used Mailbox on an iPad before, however, you’re going to be sorely disappointed with the user interface.

Google’s updating all of its first-party Android apps for Lollipop, and while some of them are just getting a new lick of paint, many will receive exciting new features at the same time. One of those apps is Gmail, which will finally support third-party email services, allowing you to use just the one app for all of your accounts.


CloudMagic, the best third-party email client for mobile, just got even better thanks to a major new update that’s available right now on Android and iOS. In addition to adding quick filters for things like unread and starred messages, the release brings customizable alert tones, account nicknames, access to spam folders, and lots more.


Believe it or not, but Android and iCloud can work together in perfect harmony.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received a number of emails from readers who are either considering or already in the process of migrating from an iPhone or iPad enquiring if it’s possible to configure an iCloud account on an Android-powered device. The quick and simple answer to that question is yes, it is possible, but it can be a bit tricky — so we’ve decided to create this comprehensive ‘How-To’ guide.

So sit back, relax and follow the steps below to set up your iCloud email account on your Android smartphone or tablet. Before we start, though, you’ll need to open the stock Email client on your handset. The design of the application will vary depending on your particular device and the launcher you’ve chosen to use, but its overall function should be the same.


Google’s stock Android Email application, which comes pre-installed on Nexus devices and allows users to access third-party email services like Outlook and iCloud, is now available to download from Google Play. The release will enable users to get their hands on updates and new features faster than before, but it’s available only to Nexus and Google Play Edition devices.
