About Inbox by Gmail

Developer 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.

App Reviews

  • 5 Star App w/1 Star Support

    By TerpPilot
    UPDATE: Look....Google, if I take back all the bad things I said about your support of iPhone X will you PLEASE not kill off Inbox. For those that don't know Google plans to transition everyone back to Gmail. This is a HORRIBLE idea! Yes you've added some features from Inbox to Gmail but that does NOT make them equivalent. C'mon guys Inbox is leading edge and innovative. Gmail is stodgy and good for luddites. I'd pay for this app and even consider a subscription to keep it going. However you guys gotta bring back location based reminders! What genius over there decided removing functionality was a good idea? How great to get the email to appear at either the right time or the right place. OLD: Seriously Google why does it take so long to properly support your app? It's going on 3+ months and STILL no iPhone X support! Google and the Inbox team had the same slow support from initial launch to an iPad supported app. It's frustrating because the actual app and the features are so amazing and helpful to get your particular set of to-do's done. I'll happily re-write this to a 5 Star once you support the app and all the phone/tablet combinations fully and consistently. PLEASE!
  • This app has changed my life :-)

    By Enjoys my Family
    App update: Ever since the latest update, inbox prompts me as to whether to open email links in Safari or download the google chrome app every time i have a link in my email even though I turn off the “ask me every time” button. It is driving me insane. Please fix this google!!! Previous review: Love this app. I literally was about to ditch gmail because I hated the gmail app and the way gmail works in the native iOS mail app. I accidentally found out about this inbox app while reading a review about the new iOS 10. This app works like mail should. I love the bundling and I love how the links, pictures, and receipts within emails are visible. I have half the number of clicks as I use to and now I can find which email I'm looking for without opening each one. It is easier to delete things too. I do have two requests: 1. Give me an easy way to mark a message as "read" without opening it. 2. Give me a easy way to review my "unread" messages. The reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because for some reason the badge icon never changes from the number 2 no matter how many unread messages there are. Goofy! I finally turned off the badge icon. Overall, i will never go back to regular gmail and I am using the inbox by gmail interface on my computer also!
  • Great app for high-volume e-mail accounts

    By 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.
  • Red Badge Notification Will Not Go Away

    By The Talented Mr. Macon
    Inbox does a great job of organizing my email and tying in to my later Google profile. However, the persistent presence of that little red circle is driving me crazy. It's a known issue and Google hasn't fixed it. I've found lots of potential workarounds online but (1) none of them is a permanent fix and (2) this has been an issue for over a year so we should be past workarounds. The annoyance is that I never know if I have a new email or not. Sometimes the notification badge is there and I have a new email. Sometimes it's there and there's not a new email to be seen. The best is looking at the original Gmail app right next to the Inbox app and seeing two different notification counts. Ridiculous. Since Google can't be bothered to fix a known issue with one of their more popular sis, I can't be bothered to continue using it or give it anything better than a 1-star rating. For the great innovations that Google puts out, the customer service for their products is essentially nonexistent. They seem to just rely on the community to help and that doesn't lead to responsive customer interaction on what seem to be just simple fixes.
  • Swipe-saster AGAIN

    By dirtywhitecat-9
    Careful - just like with the regular gmail app the folks at Google seem unaware that one can hit the screen by mistake and persist in making actions happening at the mere hint of a swipe touch when on the main emails list page. Somebody asked me a question while I had the app open and by simply hitting the screen w my thumb a very important email disappeared into one of the app’s own retarded “sub” folders (only accessible on hand devices to make things a little bit more obnoxious and aggravating) and I could not find it. No pop up announcement to tells you where the email just got zapped into... name of folded in which emails are sent does not appear at any point during that action and the email does not come up when doing a search for the email by sender. In my case the email happened to be a contract!!! Not sure why G folks can’t bring themselves to incorporate the simple step of a pop up verification step when it comes to an action that can so easily happen by mistake (and that is also counterintuitive since most swipe action based interfaces only swipe left to WITH a verification step). But be warned if you choose to go with this app.
  • Great app, two flaws

    By nkusen
    First, I’ve been using Inbox for the last two and a half(ish) years and it’s better than any other email app I’ve tried. It’s due to the layout of the emails and how it’s setup as todo/snooze/done. In one of the latest updates they restricted how to go back to the previous screen when in an email. It used to have an x in the corner and I could swipe down or swipe up to leave the email and go back to the main screen. Now I need to press the arrow back button in the top left corner. It’s an unnecessary change that actually impedes my ability to use the app quickly now that I need to use both hands (because I have an iPhone 7 Plus). Also, one of the little issues I’ve had with the app is when I hit the search button it brings up suggestions to search which is fine, but I have to hit the search button again to start typing my actual search. It’d be great if I could hit the search button, have the suggestions pop up, but also have the keyboard pop up so I can start typing.
  • Frustrating

    By PaulSpot
    First, this needs iPhoneX support. The extra screen space would be very useful, and it’s been long enough that we are getting impatient. Second, please change it back so that links open in the browser, not in-app. This us infuriating. It is never convenient that links open in-app. I want to multi-task, browsing things clicked on from email, then reading more email. Or, I may be logging into a website, and need to reference an email in order to complete the login (2FA, forgot password, etc). Or, perhaps it is a promotional for a store that I click on, and then decide to purchase, and I can’t go back to my email to look for coupons emailed to me, etc. There are countless reasons to jump between email and browser, and absolutely no reasons to be stuck browsing the web in my email client. While I can click a button to open the site in-browser, doing this literally every time is a frustrating workflow.
  • IMAP Push Refugee

    By SatireWolf
    I’ve been salty about the lack of push support in IMAP on Gmail for as long as it’s been an issue. A problem that only seems to exist to purposefully punish iOS users not using G apps so they can get all their juicy metrics on use. Being that G apps on iOS have been a second class citizen for the last few years I was surprised by the quality and use-ability of Inbox! I still wish we had true native email push from Gmail on iOS, but I’ll settle for a native-like app that is actually nearly and in some cases better than the desktop web interface! Some day, some enterprising engineer is going to figure out how to fix that little ‘problem’ of not following all the IMAP standards, enabling native push on iOS without angering a product managers god metric on users. I’m convinced it’s purely strategic and non-technical why that gap was never fixed after they booted everyone off exchange compatible mail sync without an enterprise apps plan.
  • Solid app for processing email

    By J. Bo
    I am still trying to find the perfect email app for iPhone. This is a solid app that makes the processing of email easy from my phone. My email addresses are all Google and so this app works very well to keep my inbox at zero or at least under 5. I am learning to like processing my inboxes separately when I am in the context of needing to review them (work email at work, home email at home, etc). I find my Gmail on the web matches my gmail in the app. I have had problems with using different mail apps across my iOS and OS and having them process differently across the systems. Leading to lost emails or emails stuck in one app, and processing the same emails more than once. There is a loss of integration with native OS and iOS but I don’t find it problematic for what I do on my phone. I am worried that I will miss something important due to the bundling but I keep it due to its usefulness when clearing junk, ads, and etc.
  • What a great way to handle email

    By ZyphBear
    I like being able to just archive and get stuff out of the way. I do wish it was easier to set up rules without having to go back to a computer and use regular Gmail, such as always archive X or similar. Also please, please pick ONE gesture and stick with it. For years when you would pull down on an email, it would go back to the previous bundled box (promos for example) you were in, repeat and would go back to your main inbox. But over the last several updates, if you pull down it attempts to refresh the message or the box you were in, requiring you to only be able to leave the message by hitting the X. But then randomly the pull gesture works every once in awhile. It was so easy to just pull down and exit the message and exit the box quickly since then it didn't matter where you did it, the X being in the upper left requires using both hands instead.
