Gmail is just nowhere near what Inbox was.
I don't know why no one else mentions this, but some of the best parts of Inbox is the single column UI, the favicon style colored or photo avatars next to each email, and most importantly DATE GROUPING. I can archive the whole past week or month easily, and it makes visually parsing your inbox so much easier.
That being said, I am so disappointed with Google in general these days I am very tempted to just stop using Gmail once Inbox is dead. Sadly moving my whole email life to another service can be a bit of a hassle.
Big ol' middle finger to Google here. I can't believe how much I used to defend the poor decision making of these big tech companies.
I agree with all your sentiments. It's frustrating to say the least. I went back to using gmail the past couple months and it's just not the same. It works but feels very cumbersome and inefficient.
That article was a long way to go simply to promote your product.
We really care about these topics and we've been long time Inbox fans, so I assure you we really wanted to publish this, besides the obvious shameless plug to our client.
Bundles (including Trips) will be what I miss the most. I've spent years tweaking my Updates bundle to only push-notify me of things that I really care about. I hope that doesn't all go down the drain with the switch.
I plan to continue using inbox until the day I can't, but this is a nice intro to some of the features I will be forced to learn
Yes, simply no other client has that kind of Trips support, it will be dearly missed.
I was one of the early users of Inbox but I could not get close to it and I stopped using. So being like Inbox is not a great thing but I saw your campaign on Appsumo but unfortunately, there is no trial without payment. If you can share free tiral code I'd like to check it out. @fabrizio
Btw I want to try superhuman.com as a simpler mail client but it's expensive for me.
