Yes, it’s possible to achieve the elusive serenity of “inbox zero” with a new iPhone app called Mailbox.
Mailbox does something nothing else has done before: allow emails to be “delayed” for future delivery when you have time to deal with it. And it executes this function with a gorgeous interface that allows for very quick email parsing.
The gestures are simple: slide the email to the right to archive a message and remove it from the inbox. Slide it all the way to the right of the screen and an “x” will appear indicating that the email will be deleted. If you change your mind, simply shake the iPhone and a dialog box will pop up to undo the action.
