Mailbox Update for iOS Brings Cloud Search, Account-Specific Signatures and More

Mailbox has been updated today with Cloud Search, letting you search every message in your Gmail account. Additionally, you can set specific signatures for each Gmail account. Links now give you the option to open in Chrome instead of safari as well.

Other performance improvements and bug fixes were included as well. 

The fast, fun mobile inbox that puts email in its place.  

Mailbox is a completely redesigned inbox that makes email light, fast, and mobile-friendly. Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they'll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what's important now.

Mailbox checks your email from the cloud, then delivers it to your phone securely. You can even get push notifications for new messages. Add all your GMail accounts for speedy access on-the-go.

Mailbox makes getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Note: Currently for Gmail only. Other email platforms coming soon. 

What's New In This Version:
- Cloud Search (now search every message in your Gmail account)
- Account-specific signatures
- Open links in Chrome
- Performance improvements and bug fixes

You can download Mailbox from the App Store for free.

Facebook Gets Shared Photo Albums

Facebook is rolling out a new Shared Photo Album feature starting today, reports Mashable.

The world's largest social network announced shared photo albums on Monday, a new feature that allows multiple users to upload images to the same album. The album creator can share access to as many as 50 "contributors," who can each in turn share up to 200 photos. Previously, users could only upload photos to albums they created, and each album was limited to 1,000 total photos. The new shared albums have three available privacy settings: public, friends of contributors and contributors only.

The project was spearheaded by Bob Baldwin a software engineer at Facebook and his colleague Fred Zhao. A company-wide hackathon was held in January and about a dozen engineers worked through the night to create the feature.

"I think one thing that's really fun about creating products at Facebook is that you're never quite sure how people will use the product in the end," Baldwin said. "We're really excited for launch because we think people will use [shared albums] in ways that we're not even thinking of."

Album creators will have the power to delete or modify any photo in the album but contributors can only edit photos they've uploaded. Currently, there is a 200 photo limit per person; however, that may increase in the future. Also, the ability to create an album has yet to make it to mobile; however, you can contribute to an album from a mobile device. The feature is not available for Page albums.

Facebook is rolling out Shared Photo Albums to select English users today and will expand it to all English users before it finally reaches international users.

Apple set to unveil the iPhone 5S on September 10th

We knew it was getting close, and we knew that Apple was likely to hold an event in early September in order to announce the new iPhone 5;

Maybe perhaps even a new iPad or two, but we didn't know exactly when it would be.

Now, thanks to AllThingsD, it looks like we have a date to circle on the calendar.

According to sources for AllThingsD, Apple will hold an event on September 10th in order to announce the new iPhone 5S. The rumors make it sound like Apple will also be announcing the low-cost iPhone 5C, but that has not yet been confirmed, nor has it been confirmed that there will be any iPads at this event.

Apple has tended to keep the iPhone and iPad announcements separate, so it is probably more likely that we'll see the iPhone 5S, the new lineup of iPods, and perhaps the iPhone 5C, and not any new iPad mini or full-size iPad.
