I pretty much like all things Google, but Inbox just isn't for me. I much prefer good old fashioned Gmail on my iPhone. The way Inbox sorts my emails doesn't always make sense to me, and I suppose I'd rather sort it myself. There are definitely better email apps out there. I know because I've tried a bunch of them.

Pros:

Google product

Cons:

I'm not a fan of my email being categorized for me

With the rise of new and awesome email clients like Polymail or Superhuman, the bare basics sometimes works better for some people like me.

Pros:

It simply works.

Cons:

It's not smart enough.

Google Inbox is my second most favorite of the lot. Used to ignore it all these days, but realized that it's powerful and can manage emails faster.

Pros:

Automatic categorization of emails and actionable task manager.

Cons:

Need for Mac app.

Took me awhile to like Inbox, but now I really do. The organization of folders helps immensely and I use it similarly to a to-do list!

Pros:

Folders for organization and easy to use

Cons:

Cannot mark e-mail as unread

It took me just 4 days to get used to it coming from traditional gmail desktop tool.

But once I could manage the initial learn curve, it really improved my productivity specially with reminders, smart suggested answers and how it groups different kinds of emails automatically.

Pros:

Awesome desktop and mobile usability and design. It helps you increase productivity with some really handy features that saves and organize.

Cons:

There is not friendly way to attach and image and assign a link to it (there is a way but you need to dig and research on how to do it.

I like & hate inbox for the same features.

It´s the first time my Mailbox feels sorted and clean. That said Inbox dicards eamils as unimportant, doesn't show notifications for all emails and shows how much it knows about my friends, travel agrangements and so on.

I do think a manual hosted version would be really great but I doubt we will see something soon.

In the end its a Google Product which means no updates and in 2 years we get the next version of it. It lacks a lot of things you can't do with it. For instance multiple Accounts, S/MIME encryption and ways to highlight a lot more.

Pros:

- Productivity Booster

- Good overview over emails

- Inbox Zero

Cons:

- Google Product (so we will not see any updates)

- Missing features from GMail (Filters, Labels, etc)

Great service but google's reluctance to keep it around is a sad truth.

Pros:

Excellent way to manage emails, snooze feature, material

Cons:

going away in 2018

I was one of the first users of inbox and use it every single day. It helps organize my mail in such a way that improves my productivity. The ability to add reminders is a real plus.

Pros:

best email client ever! Brings back order in any overloaded inbox.

Cons:

Google is killing this product, wants us to go back to gmail. :(

Combines a top notch UX with genuine ML-derived features.

Pros:

Unrivalled mail

Cons:

Sadly the service is being shut down

It mess up the emails

Hands-down the very best email app I've ever used. Never before was it so easy for me to see Inbox Zero and be sure that I didn't miss anything

Pros:

The auto-sorting is unmatched; the best automatic categories and priorities of any email app I've ever used

Cons:

No templates and the signature is always placed beneath the replied-to email
