Plus new gestures, new search features, and everything folks love from Boomerang on the web.

  • Pros: 

    slick interface, great management tool


    Does not match the gmail categories for primary/updates/promotional segmentation

    It would be a replacement for Gmail Inbox if it would match the segmentation of categories and only notify based on those segments. For example, I don't want a notification when I get a newsletter, but I do when it's a direct primary inbox item. I won't use as a daily driver until we get that unfortunately.

    Nice interface.


    Not quite what I was looking for.

    I tried this product since the IOS 11 does not connect to Exchange Server 2016.

    I was able to connect to the email server, but there is not a connection in the settings for the Calendar, nor does the AI work, as the only message I get is that it is not available for my account yet. So work out the bugs!

This looks incredible! Huge applause to the team who put it together! One request: When I open the app and signup, I see I have over 4,000 unread emails. That's due to the promotions/social tab in Gmail which I barely ever check. When you get support in there for those tabs this will be a real winner.

@andreaskam Hi Andreas, you're right. The Gmail tabs is one of the next features we're adding in the upcoming releases. Thanks for trying it out.

@andreaskam agreed, can't really use it as a main email app before then because the notifications and counter are off. Will still use it for the oldschool boomerang features though :). Also, would be great to get the briefing without voice commands, especially since it often doesn't recognize any of my words (i'm on 8 Plus).

@ayemoah Super. Until then I can’t use either
Great looking app only thing stopping me is lack of iCloud support. Will that be coming ?
ayemoahMaker@ayemoah · Chief of Product, Boomerang
@lbrkr We'd love to add iCloud support soon.

First impression is good! I am keen to try out the AI assistant. Though as with other apps I cannot migrate from the official iOS Gmail app since there is no support for the "Send from" feature. I have multiple Gmail addresses (personal & business)that I manage through one personal Gmail account, simply by choosing from which connected email address I want to send an email from. Hope you will consider adding this functionality in the feature :)

@k_onstantinos Hi there, we do have send from/alias support. It's in Settings > Account Settings > Send From Address. Let me know if you're having trouble hooking up your send from addresses.
