Cloud computing company Dropbox made several announcements today starting off with the introduction of the Android version of Mailbox.

Mailbox is a free email management app originally made for Apple’s iOS devices. The app has experienced considerable success in the past by becoming the second most downloaded free app in the App store when it was launched.

The Android version of the app offers almost the same functionality and features (if not more) as the iOS app. But aside from the usual swipes and snoozes, Mailbox for Android also comes with a new feature called Auto-Swiping that learns from a user’s swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. This means that whenever a user swipes an email, the system learns this action and archives similar and succeeding emails of the same nature in the future.

Moreover, this feature will be synced across email accounts and devices so your preferences will be applied whenever you’re using Mailbox on your iPad, iPhone or Android phone.

Aside from Mailbox, the company also announced today Carousel – a photo management app for Android and iOS. The app not only takes photos from users’ DB accounts and organises them by time, date and event, but also gives your photos a social aspect by letting you share them to other people.

The app also allows users to send messages to contacts in case they’re not using Instagram or other chat apps with an attach image function.
