Inbox by Gmail

Google built a a brand-new approach to email, called Inbox. The app is available for iOS and Android and organizes all of your  emails for you.

It's a great tool for anyone who has a messy inbox they just can't get under control.

Inbox by Gmail

Your inbox is a mix of individual messages and themed groups of messages, called bundles. Everything is in chronological order to help you see what's new first.

Bundles

Inbox seeks to organize all of your emails into bundles, folders designed to keep your inbox less messy. The app comes with several premade bundles, such as Purchases, Finance and Social, and you can create your own.

Swipe to archive

Inbox uses gestures to manage your messages, and if you swipe right, you can mark a message as "done" which archives it.

Swipe to snooze

If you swipe left, you can snooze a message, which hides it away until a particular time or when you arrive at a location.

Reminders

Reminders and email go together in Inbox. The app even suggests reminders for you as you type, and they'll show up at the top of your inbox.
