When the Mailbox team joined Dropbox in 2013, we shared a passion
for simplifying the way people work together. And solving the
email problem seemed like a strong complement to the challenges
Dropbox was already tackling.
But as we deepened our focus on collaboration, we realized there’s
only so much an email app can do to fundamentally fix email. We’ve
come to believe that the best way for us to improve people’s
productivity going forward is to streamline the workflows that
generate so much email in the first place.
When we introduced Carousel in April 2014, we believed a
standalone app would be a better way to experience photos. We’re
proud to have created a photo app that many of you use and love.
However, over the past year and a half, we’ve learned the vast
majority of our users prefer the convenience and simplicity of
interacting with their photos directly inside of Dropbox. With
this in mind, we’ve had to make a difficult decision.
On March 31st, we’re shutting down Carousel as a standalone app
and returning to a single Dropbox photo experience.
