It is a connected world and we all lead a busy, connected life. I am sure most of us would have a dozen or so sites to check everyday – couple of email accounts plus a couple of social media updates.
Everyday, not just once but many times a day we keep logging into these accounts and checking for updates, emails etc., which is time consuming and painful. How will it be if we log into just ONE site and check all the updates?? It’d be awesome, wouldn’t it be!!!
Well, I am gonna talk about exactly that today – and it’s called Inbox 2. Its a freeware application for Windows and includes several email servers with an attachment for Facebook, Twitter, etc., It is more than just an email client. It includes all of your contacts into one place and gives you one inbox for all the messages from your friends from different streams.
Inbox2 syncs up all your messaging data, documents & images (that you have received via emails) from your accounts that you have added to it. At first, it will take several minutes to configure fully and setup its services for you.
It is very easy & quick to add accounts by clicking on the icon of desired service. While adding Facebook, don’t use F-connect option instead just login with your account details. Moreover, it displays a live stream of recent activities from Facebook & Twitter. While in minimized state, it shows the background notifications too & you can set the time delay for it. Also at the bottom there is a Twitter search option but it doesn’t show the Trending Topics.
In the contacts window, it shows all the available information about the selected person. You can add other profiles of that person too. Well these are such basic options but the three main options are 1. Make To Do, 2. Waiting for answer & 3. Read Someday. You get these options while replying an email. You can put your replies in these three lists as per their priorities.
It is a very well-crafted utility for your social communication over emails. Even though it is a beta version, it delivers a good performance. The interface is standard & beautifully managed but worked slower in Netbooks.
Tip– If you get resolution problems & unable to maximize then hold Start Menu & press Up arrow key to fit to the screen.
Let me know in comments how useful is Inbox 2 and if you come across any other app which does the same work.
