Fast-forward to today, and you'll find an iPad version of the app together with Dropbox integration (naturally) within the app. And with the Dropbox integration at heart, should you connect your Dropbox account to Mailbox, you'll automagically gain 1GB of free storage in your Dropbox account, as first reported by 9to5Toys.

Even in case you don't anticipate using Mailbox (which only works with Gmail accounts at this time) you can at least logon and connect the 2 apps, then delete Mailbox and get back on business as usual.

Connecting Mailbox to Dropbox is dead simple:

  • Download and install Mailbox on an iOS device in case you don't curently have it installed.

  • After logging in for your Gmail account, navigate to Mailbox's settings and select the "Dropbox" option. Then tap on "Add Dropbox Account."

  • If there is a Dropbox app set up on the same device, the app will launch and prompt you to grant Mailbox permission to get into your Dropbox account. If not, you must log in to Dropbox and authorize the app the old-fashioned way.

  • Profit?

As soon when you grant Mailbox access in your Dropbox account, your storage allotment increases by 1GB. If you already have both the services connected, unlink them inside the Mailbox settings menu and reauthorize. The bonus storage should then arrive.
