Last fall, Google launched Inbox by Google, a new email app, which it hopes will one day replace Gmail as the email experience people like to use. It’s still only available by invitation, but eventually it’s going to be available to all.

The company announced that it is now available for the iPad and Android tablets after only supporting phones and the web. Software engineer Taylor Kourim says in a post on the Gmail blog:

It’s always hard to know when it’s time to share a new product, because there’s always just a _few_ more things you want to do. Today we’re happy to check off some of these to-dos for Inbox, making it easier to use on more devices and browsers.

If you're a big fan of tablets, you'll be excited to learn that Inbox has come to iPad and Android tablets. Download the app from the App Store and Google Play.

Google has also added new browser support for the web version. Previously, Inbox was only compatible with Chrome, but now supports Firefox and Safari.

You can still request an invite by emailing inbox@google.com. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the experience, but some do seem to like it. Here's a look at how people have been using it:
