Inbox: A new approach to email

Gmail’s New Inbox App

Gmail has a new mobile app called Inbox.  A fellow Evernote beta tester wrote this blog article about a week ago.  He’s included a video about the new app in his post. And some really cool Gif like photos that show little iPhones updating info that I’d love knowing how he did!

Inbox: A new approach to email

Google's new Inbox app

It looks pretty cool, but you need an invite from a friend who’s already using it to try it out. I thought I could work around that little requirement by finding a link on one of Google’s info pages to the App Store.  But after downloading the app, when I tapped on the Gmail account I wanted to use I got a message saying I didn’t have an invite yet.

So I tried another Gmail acount (I have too many), but they all said the same thing.  I’m really annoyed because really think this app will address a lot of the problems I have with Gmail and I want it now!

I did of course email them…and got a nice ‘you’re on the list’ reply.

Update on Tuesday Nov 18, 2014

My Official Invite From Google Arrived Today!  I’m still excited to try it, but realistically that won’t happen anytime soon since I’m now officially in my pre-holiday panic mode and trying to figure out how I’ll get everything done in time for Christmas!  But I will write more about how I like it after the panic subsides.

About vsajewel

Hi...I'm the author of 2 main blogs on WordPress...vsatips...where I write tech tips for mobile devices...primarily ios...2nd is vsatrends...where I write less about tech things and more about everything else. I also host a YouTube channel which I use to better illustrate some of the 'how to's' in my posts. I love everything about technology. Currently, my main interests/platforms are ios, Windows and Amazon Echo. Recently I decided we were spending way too much money with our local cable provider. So I decided to cut the cord. There is a definite learning curve, especially the antennae part, but we successfully did that and are now saving a boatload of money, so I write some about that. I also am extremely conscientious about security because of an event my family endured , so I write a lot about that too. Two sub-categories of security I tend to focus on are the password manager Dashlane and Hardware Firewalls. Last, I take a lot of notes and have been a beta tester for Evernote for many years. I love Evernote! In recent years Apple has beefed up Apple Notes a lot...so it’s become a fairly serious note contender...as long as its OK if you lose or mess up all your Apple note data. I write about those 2 note platforms primarily.
