Anybox is an instant messenger that uses email as the means for communication. Before you get to use the full functionality of the app, you need to send an email using your internal email app to activate the app. After that is done you can change your photo and even put in a status update. You can copy photos from your computer to your mobile device. All you do is email your friends through address and the photos you receive can be automatically saved to your camera roll. You also get notification and alert emails where you can have them sent directly to your Anybox or forward them from your Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail.

The one thing that is bothering about this app is that even though you set up an email address with Anybox you have no way of signing in. If you get a new phone then you might have to create a new email address. There should e a way to take care of your account on Drop Box.
