  • Pros: 

    Google product

    Cons: 

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

    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: 

    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.

    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.

    Agustin Esperon has used this product for one year.

Can't remember ever being more excited to share a Google product with the world. Has completely changed how I use email.
Andrew Zusman@uxandrew · UX Designer
@kennethn ...so better than Wave? I remember how excited I was when Wave came out :-)
Anuj Adhiya@anujadhiya · Engagement/Analytics at GrowthHackers
@UXAndrew Wave had so much potential
Bradley Mahler@bradmahler · Creative at Studio Tentpole
@AnujAdhiya @UXAndrew Agreed! I was surprised when it didn't find its way into G+. It could have been a great differentiator vs. Facebook. Every wall post could turn into a live group chat.

From what I've initially gathered, Google is centralizing the many inboxes we all have (email, to-dos, flight reservations, receipts, etc.). Here's a lovely GIF: Seems like something that should be a part of Google Now/Android notification tray.

1. Best product I've seen developed by a non-research team at Google in 3 years. 2. It's like Mailbox if Mailbox could do what Mailbox hoped to do. 3. Glad it's finally out for everyone to use.

@niket From your comment in #2, was this a response to Mailbox? Also curious if anyone from the old Sparrow team worked on Inbox.
o(^^Q)@niket · Time Travel Researcher
@eric3000 Someone asked if this was like Mailbox, and my response is that I think both of these awesome teams are trying to help people communicate better and be more effective. I think in terms of execution Inbox is ahead of Mailbox thanks to integrations with Google's other services. I have a ton of respect for both teams and wish them well as we try to navigate digital communication.

@eric3000 @niket had the same thought RE: Sparrow team.

@eric3000 Inbox was under development long before Mailbox sold to Dropbox.
