What is it about?
Inbox by Gmail is a fresh new take on your Gmail inbox. Rather than give you a traditional email inbox, this app gives you highlights for the day, which means you only see what new messages you got today, rather than having a mess of messages from many days before. Additionally, the bundles feature is extremely useful, as it bundles up similar messages, which means it is easier to get rid of. And if you have trouble remembering to take action on some messages, Inbox also has reminders to help you stay on top of your email. Users can also snooze messages for later and search through their entire email account for something specific. It's a great app that makes it much easier to manage a full inbox throughout the day.

Why we love it
Inbox has a nice interface that is easy to use and navigate. The bundle feature is very useful for organizing a messy inbox, and there are a ton of useful features to help you stay on top of your messages.
App Store 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.
