EmptyInbox for GMail

John Goering
"The quickest way to clean up your GMail inbox." - AppAdvice


NOTE: This app currently only works on iPhone - we are working on a fix for iPad. We apologize for the inconvenience to the iPad users.


Does your inbox get as crowded as quickly as ours, making the glorious state of "inbox zero" seem impossible to attain without hours of work?

EmptyInbox is a free iPhone app which shows you each email in your inbox as an index card, giving a focused view of who the email is from, the subject line, and the first few lines of the email. At the tap of a button, you can archive the email if you know it's unimportant, star-and-archive it if it needs action, or trash it. Instantly, you are shown the next email in your inbox. Rinse, repeat until you're down to zero. Simple, fast, and focused.

Blaze through your GMail inbox, marking the ones you need to act on, and getting the rest out of sight, out of mind. Flexible enough to fit your own email workflow, but simple enough to stay laser-focused on getting to that glorious state called "Inbox Zero".

Here's what EmptyInbox offers...

* Intuitive, streamlined controls with simple, large buttons right at your thumb (and a left-handed mode if needed)
* The ability to blast through your inbox in minutes, leaving only a clean inbox and a star on emails requiring action
* Fun & fast animations when processing email index cards

If you want more, you can purchase EmptyInbox Plus in-app, which additionally offers...

* the ability to apply your GMail labels to an email (displayed as yellow stickit tags)
* An undo button for taking back "mis-taps"
* No ads

See http://app.net/emptyinbox for more information!

What EmptyInbox is NOT:

* Not your typical email client - you will not be able to read your emails nor reply to them. It is purely a email processor - focused on helping you tame your inbox.
* EmptyInbox currently does not support other email providers - it is designed for GMail only.

Please note that for security's sake your GMail password is not stored in plaintext but rather in your iPhone's secure keystore.
Our verdict: Meh!
  • EmptyInbox for GMail is a poorly rated app (1.5-star).
  • + The app is free.
