Make overwhelming inbox easy to process for busy people.




Provide Time Estimates

Estimated Effort requires senders to provide recipients with time estimate of each email's task.


Speed Up Frequent Actions

By opening emails in-place, frequent action buttons are kept in the same tap area as the email cell prior to opening. Over time, users can do “blind” double-tap to rapidly perform their most frequent actions.


Integrate With Calendar

Calendar integration leverages Estimated Effort as default duration value, and further assists busy people's inbox processing in the context of time management.
