A clean, open-source desktop client for Google Inbox 💌

#3 Product of the DayJanuary 06, 2018

Inboxer — is an unofficial Inbox by Gmail client for desktop platforms. It's built on top of Inbox by Gmail web-version, has pleasant UI and supports useful keyboard shortcuts.

  • Pros: 



    - Same as the web client

    - Continuous notifications for unopened emails which is hampering my concentration and productivity

    It needs more plugins and extra features besides those that are provided on the web client.

What is the appeal of this? Is it less memory intensive than having a Google Chrome tab open?
David@davidj · Digital Marketing
@pfilias I'd be curious about this as well. If it's not, then I don't see the benefit of having a dedicated app.

@pfilias for me, I’ve been having issues with too many tabs open in Chrome - and killing my Ram, so I’m hoping this will allow me to offload a couple tabs.

@pfilias actually, there's kind of people that like to have a standalone application instead of pinned tabs in a browser. I'm one of them, so I've built it for myself. By the way, some of the additional features are planned in future (compact & dark modes). The best part of it is that application is open sourced and that means everyone can propose or implement the feature they like to have.
@pfilias After google kills its Inbox, this looks like only replacement for me.

This looks great! I’ve been looking for another option since Boxy became so flaky.
