An essential add on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best way to sum it up is that if I was only allowed one extension it would be this. Gmail is the best email provider, Active Inbox makes it outstanding and unlike Gmail is is devised by one individual and continues to be managed by a small team!

Real time saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Easy-to-use add-on that will change your life regarding email management.
The ability to easily view emails for which you need to do something, or for which you are waiting for a reply is an awesome feature. You don't have to worry anymore about forgetting to do something, and it helps you better reach your deadlines.
With the possibility to manage projects ActiveInbox becomes the best tool to handle Gmail emails.

The integration with the new Gmail look works perfectly, and it is always a great pleasure to see the constant improvements that this add-on is offering.

Great work! I encourage all of you to try it. Even the free version will save you time and stress!

Time & confusion saver extension :-)
I'm glad that ActiveInbox 4.0.2.20 works perfectly into Firefox 5.0 (it is available from thier website as quoted in the description).

Inbox Zero Achieved At Last! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was somewhat reluctant to believe that this little bit of software could manage to get me to "Inbox Zero" as well as help me to keep on top of my To-Do mail items, etc. I am therefore all the more bowled over by quite how easily it is to pick up, how well it works, and how I now have achieved Inbox Zero and a clear overview of what remains outstanding from my email "bucket". If you are like me a little bit unsure, then be aware that it you can easily reverse the small number of changes the add-on makes to your Gmail account if it turns out not to be the add-on for you.I just hope that they make a version for Outlook - as that really would revolutionise my working life!

Awesome Add-On: Improved my Productivity Big Time Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very well-designed add-on that transformed the way I use email as a task manager. Quite customizable to suit your own GTD methods. Developer is very responsive and active in improving the product regularly.

Excellent add-on, that allows me to stay on top of my e-mails. The send & remind me function is very good! Just before the last and very big update there were several small updates, but that only meant clicking "OK" on the occasional question to download a new version and was no hassle.

I'm using it for a month and it quite improved the way i GTD over my emails.

One of the best add-ons ever.

It was a decent addon to GMail. But, as others have noted, it started getting weird. When an addon reaches a point where I have to download an update every few days, that tells me there are serious problems with it. Really, you can just about do the same things it does by creating your own label system, which I did. It's easier and more personalized than the one-size-fits-all approach the developers took.

Fantastic App Rated 5 out of 5 stars

- when it works. Current version 3.0.18 is broken - probably Google's fault and I really miss it : (

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This helps me a lot, and I'm not even using it yet to it's full potential. Right now, adding the brightly colored "ACTION" labels is a huge help. What I will be doing is grouping like emails into projects, etc. But even as a beginner user, this is a fantastic system!!

Recently became bloated payware Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was useful before the authors recently converted into bloatware, and tying a nag until you pay me $25/yr sidebar to the plug.

Too bad the moon program is being cancelled, they would have been prime candidates for the trip.

good for certain people Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i can see value in this but its just not for me. if your incoming email isn't a cazillion per day then you will get by perfectly fine (if not better) using standard Gmail. but if it is then this add-on will help you get some order to all those different incoming emails

Get this app now, and tremendously increase your ability to perform when using Gmail. I've had this version, and prior ones for over six months. Andy has brilliantly improved my ability to work through massive email message traffic and follow-up appropriately -- no simple task. Couldn't image doing what I do without GTDInbox.

GUI clutter Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice idea, but the interface for this greatly clutters your label and chat views. In short the interface could be MUCH cleaner, and hence more effective.

Wow! Even if you're not familiar with GTD, this is easy enough to use and follow that it's well worth the install. The author's site has plenty of information to get you started. It has it's own little bugs, but nothing major enough to lose a star. Thank you!

As it says, a powerhouse. Email? What is that? Email is just a flow of stuff into your life. Andy got that and turned gmail into powerhouse for processing such input.
