    Pros: 

    Incredibly useful, subtle, smart

    Cons: 

    I'm sure there's something but can't think of anything at the moment.

    I've been using Boomerang for much longer than a year, that's just the longest option this allows me to choose. I use it every day and am still probably underutilizing its capabilities. With it I have been able to be on top of follow ups, handle emails when top of mind but make sure they go out at a more optimal time for response, and with Inbox Pause... Catching up after OOO has been so much easier.

    Melissa Grody has used this product for one year.

I tell any company that I advise to straight away install this and Rapportive. Absolutely essential for individual's email management. Key features: - "send later" function : easily schedule a time for an email to be sent - "Return Conversation to Inbox" button: archives an email and then returns it to your inbox at a date that you define, optionally if the person hasn't responded - "boomerang this if no reply" : it bumps the email back to the top of your inbox if the other person doesn't reply by a set date/time ultimate tool for managing inbox zero. pro tips are that it has good language recognition. In the date box you can type complex stuff like: Wednesday 4pm GMT and it will understand it and convert it into your local timezone.

It blows my mind how Google hasn't bought/built Boomerang yet. They were prescient enough to pick up Sparrow. Maybe Boomerang doesn't have the numbers to justify it? That would seem false to me given how many people I know use Boomerang. I love Boomerang but it bums me out that $15/month is too pricey for my tastes right now. (For the uninitiated: Boomerang is free for @gmail.com addresses but $15/month for Apps accounts). I'm in the un-sweet spot where I'd love more than 15 delayed emails/month on my Prime email address but I have Mailbox on my phone which has set the precedent for this being a free feature — I honestly just delay emails via Mailbox once I hit my limit in Boomerang.

I cant imagine working without this. Its definitely helped me compartmentalize reminders on things I need to get done.

I installed Streak about two months ago and it's incredible – has Boomerang and canned response functionality as well as its core CRM. Life changing. :)

@katekendall I used to be a hardcore home rang user, but streak offers so much more and there's no send limit in the free account 😀
