What is Flow-e?

Flow-e is a visualization layer on top of your Gmail or Outlook inbox. It provides an elegant Kanban-like workflow that's combined with the ideas behind Inbox Zero and GTD. Flow-e eliminates the need for external task management tools and transforms your inbox into a central To-Do app.

Best app I've seen in a long time that tries to reinvent the experience and workflow of processing email. The last one being https://emailgame.baydin.com/. Nicely done - and I don't say that lightly!

Pros:

Gorgeous, thoughtful UI. Highly functional. Solves real problems!

Cons:

No real "cons" yet, but I wish it allowed exporting tasks to 3rd party systems.

This is exactly what I need for gmail+cal+tasks+checklists

Pros:

Logic, drag-and-drops, conversion from email to task

Cons:

Needs optimization: tab freezes. Too much options

Share
Thanks for your feedback Nelly, we will be improving flow-e for sure, feel free to submit an issue if the freezing problem occurs again.

Flow-e has sticking power for me... I wrote about my first 10 days here:

I've been using this for close to a year now and they have been super responsive to my requests and support issues, which is great! I was always unorganized with my email, but now I can put them in my separate lists and easily get through them. I love it.

Pros:

Nice UI, drag-and-drop, visual organization, ability to create custom lists

Cons:

auto-populate emails when composing doesn't work well, not real-time,

Thanks for the review, Brad, much much appreciated :)

It's not only the most elegant way to bring Kanban or GTD models to the email management , but it is also effective and practical.

Having experimented with other tools and methods to handle a high volume of mail, I'm convinced that the Flow-e team has really achieved it.

It's useful from the first minute and the permanent evolution that it's having shows a formidable future perspective.

Pros:

Intuitive, beautiful interface, constant improvement, customizable workflow, ...

Cons:

Some things to do but ... they are doing it!!!

I have only used this 1 day so far but it is obvious that this will be a long-term keeper

Pros:

Brilliantly executed interface, works fabulously with zero setup effort and without altering existing email at all

Cons:

Would be nice to have Zapier support, which would complete its design as the ultimate "To Do" and organizer list

Been using this product for close to a year now. The initial startup process (of organizing all of your emails) is tedious, but critical. Once the system is in place, the "gamification" and the instant sense of organization makes this so much better than just an email stack. The only downside (and I say this with a phenomenal appreciation of the large number of pros) is that because you are filtering the email experience, it is never quite as good at creating a new email as other programs that only do that (looking at you Outlook). But the advantages of this platform is that it lets you ORGANIZE and PROCESS your emails which the other tools can't even begin to touch. Keep up the phenomenal work team flow-e
