Inbox by Gmail – Organized for You

Inbox by Gmail treats email in a very different way than the regular Gmail app. It attempts to organize your mail for you, and only notify you of emails it thinks you’ll care about. It’s a hands-off approach that a lot of people appreciate. Once you spend some time training it, Inbox can really clean up your messy email.
