@nptimms well done! You probably have seen this question coming 😉: What is the difference between DragApp and Sortd?

@saiedtehrani Absolutely, seen it coming, however I have not prepared an answer, so here we go :) Sortd is great. We've had a lot of feedback from users suggesting that sometimes, tools such as Sortd are really comprehensive and are a big fix for a small problem. Sortd is very mature and a great product (I believe they're pivoting a little at the moment). For us, we want Drag to be super-simple, clean, and self-explanatory. We're introducing features such as customized columns, notes, checklists, team boards, etc. but all in a really clean way. We also don't want to override the way you use Gmail but instead support the current way you use Gmail. I'm not sure if you've seen, but here's our Public Roadmap so you can openly see all developments: https://trello.com/b/41FGtlod/ If you get the chance to review, I'd love to hear what your thoughts are compared to the Sortd and other tools in this space?

@nptimms @saiedtehrani Good luck with this, Nick. If it's faster than Sortd then I'm in, as will be many thousands of others.
@jwelch @saiedtehrani James, thank you! Lot's of confidence-boosting comments today which is hugely appreciated. We plan to go down a really simple route with Drag (I really believe that's what users need). Thanks again.
@nptimms @saiedtehrani I'm trying to wrap my head around the same Q/A having been a Sortd user for a while. Both are great but I haven't yet discovered the main difference. Anyone?
@saiedtehrani How did you get on with Sortd vs. Drag? I hope we persuaded you! To let you know, new Pro PH launch happened today: https://www.producthunt.com/post...
Hey everyone (thanks Kevin for the listing!). I want to introduce Drag. I would love everyone's feedback. We have a Public Roadmap here (so you can see what we're working on): https://trello.com/b/41FGtlod/ Drag transforms your Gmail into organized Task Lists. Drag’s free Task List app turns your inbox into a manageable workspace (just like Trello, but for Gmail). Drag ‘n drop your emails between stages; To Do, Doing and Done until their complete. It makes the hours spent in your inbox a whole lot easier and more organized. We use a layout called ‘Kanban’ right inside Gmail. You’ll know it from tools such as Trello or Pipedrive Kanban is a way of managing tasks in a lean way, it allows you to visually map your workflow –we’re the first to bring this to Gmail.
@nptimms Good stuff, and just in the nick of time!
@johnschenk Haha, I really hope so John!
@nptimms can I use it with inbox?
@rotemthegolfer Hey Rotem, not just yet. But we're working on this, in the background. Have you seen our Public Roadmap? You can get a full picture of what's happening with Drag here: https://trello.com/b/41FGtlod (and add any ideas you have also!)
@nptimms @rotemthegolfer is there anyway to incorporate "reminders" from Inbox. This has become a vital feature for to-dos. I often write them on my phone, and would love to "drag them" in your tool. Curious if that is possible.
This looks great. I like the toggle on/off switch to get back to reg gmail
@kristofertm Hey Kristofer, thanks so much for feedback. Toggle is important, as we're trying to avoid replacing your Gmail experience, simply enhancing it. We have a Public Roadmap highlighting our users, feedback and therefore our developments in priority order. Hope you enjoy it :) https://trello.com/b/41FGtlod/
@kristofertm you still toggling? New Pro version live today, FYI: https://www.producthunt.com/post...
hey @kristofertm how is it going? Our new version, Drag Team, is live today, FYI: https://www.producthunt.com/post... (please feedback if you have some time. today!)
I love this! Always looking for the best way to tame my Gmail.
@andrewjb44 Hey Andrew, always a big motivator to hear positivity on Drag! All the best and you know where I am if you have questions.
Hey @andrewjb44 hope to hear that Drag has been helping you be productive every day? We have just launched Drag Pro on Product Hunt too! https://www.producthunt.com/post...
Hey @andrewjb44 Our new version is live today, FYI: https://www.producthunt.com/post... (please feedback if you have some time. today!)
Had no idea this existed. I literally created a Trello board the other day to prioritize my email just like this. Love it, and never heard of Sortd either. Think I may give of them a try and see how it goes! Meanwhile, I love the toggle to switch from Gmail to Drag quickly. It's like swiping between screens on my mac, super quick and I will fidgetly do it a lot. Love this!
@danny_mcdonald Hey Danny, a lot of people don't know these tools exist in Gmail. They didn't until recently, and now it's a race! :) Hope you really enjoy it. Here's our Public Roadmap also, so you can see what's planned for Drag: https://trello.com/b/41FGtlod
@nptimms Just to follow up. I installed this on one of my Gmail's (my most frequently used one) and I noticed that every time I try to go back to my inbox, my gmail crashed :\ Definitely started happening after I installed this plugin. Figured I'd let you guys know!
@danny_mcdonald Hey Danny, FYI we will be launching Team boards (where you can collaborate just like Trello, next month. We also just launched Drag Pro on PH today too: https://www.producthunt.com/post...
hey @danny_mcdonald hope Drag has been helping you be more productive? By the way our new version is live today, FYI: https://www.producthunt.com/post... (please feedback if you have some time. today!)
