Inbox by Gmail is finally available to Google Apps for Education domains.1 This means I can finally use Inbox as my primary email client across the board. When it launched, it was mostly a clone of the now defunct Mailbox, but it has really grown over time. There are two main reasons I prefer it to the other mailbox-like email apps.
One, it is available basically everywhere. There are apps for both iOS and Android, and the web client works great on basically everything else.
Two, it is made by Google. You do not need to rely on a third party server and all the potential security issues that brings. It is also not going to break because of some server side change that Google implements.
It’s a great productivity apps that can help keep your inbox sane, and I highly recommend Google Apps both enable it for their users and actively encourage its use.
