Of course it is!! πŸ™‚πŸ’œ These days it’s nice to see anything follow a predictable pattern resulting in a positive outcome: design something the right way, people actually recognize it, and the product succeeds. πŸ‘

Well, I guess this makes sense. Recently I did find myself using both Inbox and Gmail for different purposes; I used Inbox for a quick triage of stuff and then use Gmail for composition and search functionality. I didn’t know what Google’s roadmap for either of these apps were so I thought they could be used complementarily. However for simplicity’s sake it seems like just using a single Google e-mail app make sense.

I’m still holding out for the next incarnation of Google Wave!!! πŸ€žπŸ€πŸ¦„
