Inbox by Gmail
Get on better with your emails
Inbox by Gmail is a new iPhone app with a familiar interface that delivers a few twists. In addition to email, the app takes care of reminders, and allows users to search or snooze data.
Bundles consolidate similar messages, so users can act upon everything with a single tap or swipe, while retaining the option to open individual emails. Another feature called Highlights extracts the most important details, without having to open the email. Results were varied, but photo attachments worked well.
Inbox manages to perform its magic without disrupting the traditional IMAP folder arrangement used by Apple Mail and other clients. We found Inbox more intuitive to use than the basic Gmail app, but neither is currently capable of managing other types of email accounts, sadly; the lack of native iPad support is also a disappointment.
