Dropbox announced today that Mailbox, the popular gesture-heavy email client it bought last year, will soon be launching a desktop version of its software.

The company also announced a set of new features like Dropbox account sign in and syncing and delete automation coming soon to the iPhone and iPad versions that will debut first in a version available for Android; this marks the first time the email software will be available on another platform aside from iOS as Mailbox is available on the Google Play Store now.

Users interested in using the beta version of Mailbox for OS X, which is said to be very minimal and rely on the trackpad for gesture-based interactions, can sign up on Mailbox’s website to learn more about the upcoming beta.

While Mailbox first debuted as an iPhone-only email app with support limited to Gmail, it has since released a native app for iPad users and added iCloud and Yahoo email support as well.

The OS X version of Mailbox will likely come as a relief to many Gmail users on the Mac platform at Apple’s native Mail application has continuously been plagued with countless issues regarding Gmail.
