We’re incredibly excited to release the first updates after we’ve gone full-time on Boxy Suite. We had a huge backlog and a long roadmap ahead, so it feels good to finally have the time to take the products where we want them to be.

For example, Boxy for Gmail finally has a beautiful onboarding to greet new users and guide them through some of the main features.

We’ve also finally introduced native notifications support in Boxy for Gmail and Boxy for Calendar. It used to be that the only way to receive notifications was by using the Dashboard, but now we leave this choice to the users (as explained at the end of the onboarding).

There are many other fixes and improvements which we think you’re going to love. Check for updates today to get them!
