Dropbox Will Shut down Mailbox And Carousel To Integrate both To Dropbox App

Dropbox has announced their plan to shut down two applications: Mailbox and Corousel. The plan is to integrate both apps to the Dropbox app.

Mailbox is a popular client email on iOS, which has been acquired in 2013, while Carousel is their own app used to share photos. Here is the official letter from Dropbox associated to their shut down plan:

“In 2013, we acquired Mailbox because we believed in the way it was making mobile email better. In 2014, we launched Carousel to create a new way to experience and share photos. With both, we aspired to extend the simplicity of Dropbox to other parts of our users’ lives.

Building new products is about learning as much as it’s about making. It’s also about tough choices. Over the past few months, we’ve increased our team’s focus on collaboration and simplifying the way people work together. In light of that, we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down Carousel and Mailbox.

The Carousel and Mailbox teams have built products that are loved by many people and their work will continue to have an impact. We’ll be taking key features from Carousel back to the place where your photos live—in the Dropbox app. We’ll also be using what we’ve learned from Mailbox to build new ways to communicate and collaborate on Dropbox (you can see early signs of this focus with Paper).”

Meanwhile, carousel will be shut down on March 31, 2016. After Carousel shuts down, you’ll still able to view and share your photos in the Photos tab views on the web and in your Dropbox mobile app.
