Inbox by Gmail requires an invite. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one.
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.
- BUNDLES – Similar messages are bundled together so you can deal with them all at once. And get rid of them with one tap.
- 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.
- 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.
Yes, it is working with Gmail only and currently requires an invite.
I am really intrigued by Google’s attempt to redefine what email is. At the same time I am curious what Google get from out of this. I use Google Apps for my email services and Google Domains for my personal domain. Haven’t I even Google enough pieces of myself?
By the way, I have a few Google Domains invite left.

Apple releases iOS 8.1 build 12B410 (iPad) and 12B411 (iPhone) with Apple Pay and Text Message Forwarding.
Apple will release iOS 8.1 on Monday, October 20, 2014 along with the deployment of Apple Pay.
There will be a lot of people holding off from updating to iOS 8.1 for many different reasons. Some would be worried if iOS 8.1 update would be a repeat of the botched iOS 8.0.1 Over The Air (OTA) update. A lot of people are holding off from updating to iOS 8 because the do not have enough free space on their iOS devices, which are mostly 16 GB model or less.
I have the habit of updating my iOS devices using iTunes instead of over the air; which what I did to update to iOS 8.0.1.
Wait a few hours after the release of iOS 8.1 before proceeding with the update if you’re worried about some show-stopping bugs. Update your iOS devices using iTunes too. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes.
