Web Software Architecture and Engineering – Life on the Bleeding Edge

Tools of the Trade #3

Raise of hands for the number of people here who use Outlook… Yeah, you there: It works, and it sucks, right?
Well, no more. Get more out of Outlook. Have you heard of Xobni? (Thats “Inbox” spelled backwards.)
I have been using them for about 6 months now, and its great. Xobni describes itself as: “Xobni is the Outlook plug-in that helps you organize your flooded inbox.”
Here is a screenshot of the right side of my Outlook screen. I’ve selected an email I received from the American Management Association.
It gives me:

  • Ability to search all emails (much faster and easier than anything Outlook has natively)
  • Details on the email sender
  • Amount of emails received
  • A picture (if available)
  • Contact info
  • Quick links
  • History of communications
  • Previous files exchanged
  • And more…

Xobni
Download today and try it out yourself. Enjoy @ http://www.xobni.com/.
