Android tablets are great for fighting email overload
I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to do app development, and I found a delightful surprise that I want to share with you.
If you get a lot of email like I do, you may find it piling up on you. Well, it turns out that the best tool out there for combatting inbox expansion is the Android Honeycomb Gmail app. It’s really easy to read and archive whole batches of messages. Tap the messages you want to archive and tap the file cabinet icon. or label a batch of messages. Or delete then. And I actually enjoy it – there’s something about tapping and swiping on the screen that just feels better than using a mouse.
My goal is David Allen’s Getting Things Done target of “Inbox 0,” and I’m not there yet, but the Tab is really helping me conquer Mt. Inbox.
