Inbox is blue and Gmail is red. End of article, thanks for reading. I should that I’m a terrible joke-maker. That sentence was the polar opposite of what was expected of me from Emmanuel.
Inbox is exactly that. A polar opposite of its 10 year old brother, Gmail. First off, Inbox radiates an aura of what I need to do, it adds a sense of purpose to your emails kind of like a to-do-list. It filters your e-mails into a number of categories or as Google likes to call them ‘bundles’. Emails you receive from colleagues, newsletters and that Nigerian prince who happens to be your relative, are all tidily bundled at your convenience. Don’t worry that last one is still filtered into junk mail automatically, I hope.
Highlights really caught my eye. It turned my endless list of emails into a kind of Twitter or Facebook news feed, making scanning through them a doddle. The best part is that you can preview the content from your inbox if it contains images or any other related media before you even open it, so basically you can already determine whether it’s useful to you or not. It’s convenient, but it’s also extremely creepy. Privacy probably isn’t that big an issue any more.
