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.

Makes short work of un­ruly in­boxes with­out mak­ing a mess of IMAP mail fold­ers in the process.
