A Video Tour of Google’s New Inbox by Gmail

Inbox is Google’s new take on email, but as many of you have already noticed, the app is a lot like Mailbox, a popular email app that helps make you more productive by turning your inbox into a task manager of sorts. Both are pretty awesome. Both are also very different ways of attacking email, though. To use either, you really need to look at your inbox in a different way, which for some of you, may be too much to ask.

Since we received an invite for Inbox, we decided that we should show you how it works. If you decide to take Inbox for a spin at some point (assuming invites become available in the near future), then we want you to know what you are getting yourself into.

Google Announces “Inbox,” A New Email Experience to Help You Get Things Done

Google just announced a brand new email experience called Inbox. Inbox, created by the Gmail team, is an email app that bundles similar emails together so that you can quickly swipe them away.

Inbox also lets you set reminders, snooze items, and may even assist you along the way by providing useful information for tasks it sees that need to get done.

It sounds a lot like Mailbox, which is awesome, because I have given my life over to the task-oriented approach of Mailbox. Return to Google, I may. (more…)
