Inbox by Google drops invites, scores new features, and now works in concert with Google Keep
Remember Inbox, Google's newer email client? Well, ever since it arrived, it required users to have an invite in order to use the arguably more polished and user-friendly Gmail alternative.

Starting today, you no longer need an invite to use Inbox. Frankly said, most users who have been interested in trying out the email client have probably already got hold of an invite, but dropping the invite system is a welcome announcement, which will allow just anyone with a supported Android device to give Inbox a spin.

The app has also scored a handful of new features, the most notable ones being the addition of Trip Bundles, which gives you an insight on flight schedules, reservation information, and other types of data. Undo Send, on the other hand, is pretty self-explanatory - if you suddenly change your mind, you can "unsend" an email that you've just sent down the line. Of course, this feature will require you to act quickly, yet nonetheless it's a most welcome addition.

Last, but definitely not least, you can now put customized signatures at the end of your emails, a small but nice touch that will stand high in some users' books, probably. Synchronization with other Google apps, such as Keep, is now also on board, allowing your reminders or notes to appear straight into Inbox.|

I used it for a month and found it's not useful to me, so I removed it. Also, I removed the Gmail app to keep my phone more clean, since I can always access my Gmail through my browser and I don't need to be notified instantly when receiving emails. I did the same for Facebook app. Anyone found the Inbox is useful? Do you keep both Inbox and Gmail app or only keep one?

Inbox is really useful for me, since I am not a SU. The app groups mails really nice and does also have good integration with Drive. And yes, I keep both Gmail and Inbox. I use Gmail for my exchange e-mail, and Inbox for my Google e-mail. I totally get your point though. Just different way of using e-mail clients.
