Review Inbox by Gmail

Kevin Vadala
9.0Excellent
Great tile system, looks great
Not revolutionary
Inbox for Android is a new email application from the Gmail team. The app wants to be a more intuitive email system that organizes your email for you in an appealing way. In terms of more practical value, Inbox might not be incredibly valuable for everyone but there are some additional things on the app that prove convenient.
Inbox uses an organizational system that categorizes your email content in a variety of different ways. It looks at your emails and sorts them similarly to how Google Now might notify you of a purchase or an incoming package. You have a list of Today activity, Yesterday activity, and then before that. In order to understand how Inbox works, it might help to tell you how it organized my email box.
I sent two screenshots to my email today, and instead of just looking like any other email, it shows me two small snippets of that process. Then, I have received emails that go under promos. Here, I get another preview of the YouTube video that is included in that promo email. Yesterday, I can see a purchase I made with the exact details in a thumbnail, and also an invitation and preview from the Gmail Inbox team. So in a lot of ways, Inbox makes skimming over your emails a lot easier and saves you time.
One of the things I like about Inbox is that it integrates Google Keep within the app. You access it by pushing the pin in at the top of the panel and from there you can see all of your reminders. While not as gorgeous as Keep, or a real replacement, it's still handy to have access to these reminders within the app so quickly. For someone whose notifications are closely linked to business, this might be super useful. This brings me to one of the best things about Inbox, which is actually sending emails. It integrates this reminder function, and the last few people you have emailed as well. So it’s even more convenient to set a reminder, but also easy to send out a fast email to someone.
Inbox is a great reimagination of how email can be. While I’m comfortable with my regular Gmail, I think that Inbox shows some much needed creativity in terms of thumbnails and relevant information where you need it.
