Those of you who use the Mailbox iOS app will discover two new useful features the next time you fire it up.

Designed as an alternative to the built-in iOS e-mail client, Mailbox version 1.3.2 now lets you manage and read your messages in landscape mode, a much-needed enhancement.

You can also now send an e-mail using a Gmail alias. This lets you use an alternate address in the From field if for whatever reason you don't want to use your Gmail address.

Mailbox offers a clean and simple interface and several tricks to manage, prioritize, and archive your messages. The app still supports only Gmail, but its developer promises that other e-mail platforms are coming soon.

Mailbox is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and is optimized for the longer screen of the iPhone 5.
