Description

Your email inbox should help you live and work better, but instead it often buries the important stuff and creates more stress than it relieves. Inbox, built by the Gmail team, keeps things organized and helps you get back to what matters.

• HIGHLIGHTS - Get the most important information without even opening the message. Check-in for flights, see shipping information for purchases, and view photos from friends right up front.

• BUNDLES - Similar messages are bundled together so you can deal with them all at once. And get rid of them with one swipe.

• REMINDERS - More than mail, you can add Reminders so your inbox contains all the things you need to get back to.

• SNOOZE - Snooze emails and Reminders to come back when you are ready to deal with them: next week, when you get home, or whenever you choose.

• SEARCH - Inbox helps you find exactly what you’re looking for— from your upcoming flight to a friend's address— without having to dig through messages.

• WORKS WITH GMAIL - Inbox is built by the Gmail team, so all your messages from Gmail are here, along with the reliability and spam protection of Gmail. All of your messages are still in Gmail and always will be.

For the love of millions, please optimize for iPhone X

Since the launch of the iPhone X, Inbox by GMail has received multiple updates improving app performance and fixing various bugs. I really appreciate the attention given to refining the UX as much as possible for a buttery smooth interface and overall app dynamics. It's my go-to email app on my iPhone X, period. I have tried many email clients for iOS (and this includes the regular GMail app) but never felt like my experience was amplified by any of those. Inbox by GMail is perhaps the only email app that, since the first time I used it (on my iPhone 6 Plus when Google launched the app), floored me in terms of its UI (and UX); dwarfing any measly expectations I had from any email client out there and what the possibilities could indeed be.

However, it's been over a month since the iPhone X went live and even though there have been regular update releases week-over-week, it sadly feels as if my experience is handicapped now and every time I use the app, I'm left longing for how immersive Inbox by GMail could possibly be and how the UX could be that much richer.

I'm a huge fan of this app and I use it on several occasions during any given day. I enjoy using it so much that I would've given it a 5-star rating if I were using any other iPhone but I'm disappointed enough to only rate it 3 stars. I hope this issue gets the attention it needs because it truly does deserve it.

Great app for high-volume e-mail accounts

Nickname is available

There are a few features that would make it perfect for me.

First, I’d really like better support for non-bundle labels. In the Gmail app, all of a message’s labels are visible from the message list. This lets me be certain that my filters have correctly applied non-bundle labels before I archive them (mark them done). I do prefer Inbox’s interface and how it groups all messages into a few broad yet distinct bundles. But when I have to go digging through old e-mails, I prefer to have my labels available to easily search for messages about specific topics or from specific companies. But the support for non-bundle labels in Inbox is lackluster at best.

Second, I’d really like a setting/option buried somewhere that lets me disable loading remote images. I realize the Gmail app doesn’t support this any more either, but I have remote images turned off in the browser version of gmail, and I would really appreciate being able to do the same here. I’m just asking, realizing perfectly well that it’ll never happen.

Google must not be aware...

Apple recently launched a new device called the iPhone X that sports a different screen resolution than older iPhone devices. However, it seems that no one at Google is aware of this new device, as the Google Inbox app has yet to be updated to support the new resolution. I have dozens of apps on my iPhone X and I'm pretty sure Google's Inbox app is the only one still rocking the black bars at the top and bottom. Even the Informed Delivery app from the USPS supports the iPhone X. Something is not right when the snail mail folks are doing a better job on the technology front (particularly on mobile) than Google. Most other apps updated prior to or on the day the iPhone X launched. Unfortunately, when a Google app sees this level of neglect it usually means the end of the road is near.

Overall, this app still works and provides useful automated organization to incoming messages. It might take a new user some time to get used to how mail is sorted but after a few days of use, it should help improve efficiency with handling a high volume inbox. One swipe to delete dozens promo emails is great.
