Google aims to reinvent email with new ‘Inbox’ app

Email is one of those services that, while not exactly broken, certainly isn’t optimized for our new mobile lifestyle. There’s a couple of decent applications out there already that try to modernize the age-old email experience somewhat but, on the mobile, it’s still basically the same process that it’s always been. Enter Google’s new ‘Inbox’ app.

Inbox uses some of the aspects of Google Now to contextualize and streamline email to give users a much better experience on mobile. It also uses Google’s slick new ‘Material Design’ approach that’s come to the fore recently. Inbox is invite-only at the moment, so good luck trying to test it out, but fingers crossed it gets a mainstream launch soon enough.
