I love INBOX. Love it! You’ve done a great job rethinking how we should use email, and you’ve nailed it. Mostly.
There are but three things that I hope to see changed:
- Please swap the locations for “Snooze” and “Trash.” I trash a heck of a lot more of my emails after reading than I ever snooze them. I love the snooze feature, and I use it quite a bit, but the ratio of emails snoozed to emails trashed is something like 3:100. Let me swipe to delete, swipe to “done” (archive), and tap two places to snooze. That would be much more efficient.
- Signatures? There seems to be no way to set a signature that is automatically applied to my emails, and Inbox doesn’t seem to respect the one I have set up in Gmail. For that matter, I fully expect that more options will show up on the “Settings” section before too long…other than labels, it’s pretty sparse in there.
- Handle my spam folder better. Hey, if I can “Done” a whole group of emails at once, why can’t I go to the spam folder and “trash” all of them at once? In Gmail, I have the option to “delete all messages in spam.” Give me something similar with Inbox so that I can feed my OCD nature that wants to keep the Spam folder cleared out daily.
Thanks! Looking forward to a long, long relationship. Oh, and you can go ahead and turn on Inbox for hosted domains any time now. I’ve got two other mailboxes that would like to have it.
