    Been reading news that Google has re-invented the email and what not.
    People are offering invites online to try it out.
    Whats going on? Is it really as awesome as they say?

    :whatisthis::whatisthis::whatisthis:

    This is like Facebook for Email. Not needed. Definitely not needed.

    The reviewer above has used the word Reminder so many times, that I don't need a reminder to be bothered about this.

    If my inbox is clean, I don't really need an app to organize it for me.

    Its a pretty nifty concept -

    The idea behind is also quite real - your inbox is pretty much your storehouse of all you online actives - like shopping, updates, travel.

    inbox allows google to experiment without having to disturb their already popular Gmail service, a small invited user base.
    Google getting real time feedback on how people interact with such a service and then possibly use that improve their mainstream apps & services.


    Your mail inbox is now no different from your SMS folder - everyone is always_online and so all email alerts are received instantly.
    Booked a movie ticket it shows up instantly in your inbox and now with the app you can set a reminder on when you want to deal with it and file it away till then.

    The UI is pretty cool and my Emails are already bundled under
    Travel, Purchases, Finances, Social, Updates, Forums, Promos.

    And its easy to dismiss multiple notification with one swipe.

    And I'm still telling Yahoo I don't want threaded/conversation view. Just plain old view is enough.
