The past few weeks we have been playing with the Inbox App from Google and we even did a video about it, if you haven’t seen that then definitely check it out below:
We thought we would write a quick updated follow up post and give our thoughts on what we like and what we don’t like and if our opinions on anything have changed.
I noticed throughout the first week they were still working on the app and functionality had changed – when you marked the “grouped” emails done then they would mysteriously disappear from your gmail as well, which was confusing at first but if you are going to use Inbox you really need to go ALL IN. I was thinking at first I could juggle both apps and at first I was right – but then they started making changes that seem to link the two apps together. More recently this week I noticed the newly updated Gmail app looked an AWFUL lot like Inbox. Hmmmmmmm. Could we be seeing the death of an old app as it gets eaten by a new one?
Gmail + Inbox = Gmailbox?
Honestly, having used Inbox it really feels like features that were missing from Gmail – even though they really are more productivity in nature, I guess that warrants the use of a new name and new branding for a new app – but in the pursuit of minimalism and more efficiency – I think they should just hurry up and combine the two apps so i can go back to checking my email in one app rather than two. Right now you can technically use one or the other, but if you want the inbox benefits – the marking things done and not having to worry about them anymore – you kind of feel like you should still use gmail so you don’t completely lose anything, but they are still working on it so we’ll see where it goes.
Can I Get An Invite?
