    It's funny how the past few days approvals have been going 20-30K per day. Then today I woke up with 12K in front of me. Tonight I'm still at 7K. Hopefully in the morning it'll be ready for me!!

    I'm in. Used it on 2 of my accounts. It's very interesting. It's definitely and amazing and well developed application. In terms of app quality, it gives every other iOS app a run for its money.

    That being said, I'm not sure if its for me. I like the beauty and function of the app, but I like more direct control of my inbox and mail. We will see after a few days of use.

    It has promise and may change my mind entirely about email. I think totally clearing my inbox and all the gestures is what's giving me hesitation right now.

    I was a little leery about having 'an empty inbox' as well...but I gotta say, it's quite a productive way to be! Now instead of scrolling thru emails making sure I took care of everything, or wrote someone back...I either snooze it til I Need to reply or focus on it; archive it just in case or delete because really once most emails are read they can go away!

    I got it last week and didn't like that it only uses gmail. It needs a lot more work. The build up was great marketing ploy for a pretty basic unfinished app with a few new concepts. May give it a go again if they add ability to add other accounts hotmail, icloud etc.

    I got to the front of the queue last Thursday and my Gmail inbox has never been emptier. The app has finally given me the discipline to delete a mail there and then instead of adding it to an ever-increasing pile of electronic junk that will never be read again.

    Love the way I can get a mail redelivered when I get home if it arrives while I'm at work and haven't got time to properly read it. Can see me happily using this for reading/deleting email and the Gmail app for composing and sending.

    Still enjoying it! Great for reminders, love the look feel and idea of it; and even when I have to log into gmail from computer, it's kinda nice to see it empty!!!

    I'm at 758,200 and based on the time duration since I installed it, I have dropped about 15,000 places in 24 hours. At this rate, it will take me a month to get in.

    To be honest, i'm not sure I like the idea of installing an app from the App Store and having to wait a month to use it.

    App deleted.

    Yeah but if your willing to delete it throw it in a not used folder and check back in a month, I hear ya though it is a long wait I've been waiting since the day they released it in the App Store but I'm glad I stuck it out

    Yeah I suppose you're right. Seeing some mixed reactions over it.

    Happy using the native app and the Gmail app for the mo.

    All y'all complaining that you downloaded it and it only uses Gmail must not have read anything about it before jumping in line. It's been made very clear that its only for Gmail at launch. Just sayin...

    Gotta say: still loving the app!!! It's great to organize my emails and have a fresh clean inbox and the 'snooze' feature is just awesome. I use it for work as reminders to do stuff and it's a great combo with Quick Drafts (type a quick task and then 'email self' then set date when it needs to show back up in my inbox...which is faster then just typing an email.)

    The number of people they seem to be letting through the gate appears to have slowed right down. I was at 758,000 ten days ago, now i'm at 520,000. To be honest, I'm really not that bothered by this app and if they hoped to build hype by making people wait, well they've failed with this customer. I just can't be bothered to keep it on my phone any more. If I trial a new app I will install it, use it and delete it if I don't like it. Having to wait well over a month just to see if I like the app is just plain stupid.

    Would you rather them open it up to everyone and then no one be able to use the app because of server overloads and crashes? They are rolling it out slowly to allow them to expand their servers as the number of users grows. When they reach a suitable server capacity, they plan to open it up to anyone and will then support additional email services, too.

    Update from mailbox blog:

    Scaling at Mailbox continues in earnest, and the line is moving faster every day.
    During its first week Mailbox delivered 50 million emails. Currently, the service is delivering 50 million emails every day. That is an incredible number for a brand new app. For comparisons sake, Twitter took three years to reach the number of daily messages that Mailbox reached in less than four weeks. Of course, Twitters network started from scratch while Mailbox taps into an existing fire hose. Nevertheless, its been a massive undertaking to scale 40x faster without a fail whale to lean on.
    A critical part of Mailbox scaling is its brand new infrastructure. Mailbox relies on servers in the cloud to do things like send push notifications, download email as fast as possible, and handle snoozed messages. Software that is server-based is susceptible to being overloaded, and we want to keep this from happening. This is email, after all, and it needs to work reliably. This is why we still have a line. If youre waiting in line, know that were working as hard as possible to get Mailbox in your hands soon.
    As we continue to scale, were also hard at work on new product features and growing our user support. To this end, user feedback continues to be incredibly helpful. Thanks for letting us know what you love, what you dont, and what you want for your Mailbox. Its making a difference.
