Google Voice is already a useful system, but Google is now expanding their Google Voice offering by now offering the ability to listen to your Google Voice voicemail directly in Gmail.Read more
RIM recently released the Enhanced Google Mail Plugin for BlackBerry BIS users. This plugin enables some of the most used Gmail-specific features that the native Mobile Gmail client has, including: Archiving messages, starring and labeling messages, reporting spam, local and remote Gmail searches, and conversation view. The advantage of the new Enhanced Google Mail Plugin is that it enables theseRead more
GPush worked great when I first purchased and downloaded it. I write “worked” in the past tense because their servers were apparently not ready for the demand placed on them. After a few hours emails stopped pushing and hasn’t been operable since. Now PushMail is bringing the same functionality… with one major difference… it works!
I’m going out on a limb and proclaiming it totally crazy that push mail notifications of any type are still news on the iPhone platform. Yet here we are in August 2009 and I’m getting excited that finally there’s an application that provides real time notification when I receive an email in my Gmail account. Never mind that it onlyRead more
It’s been a month now since I posted my first impressions, and it’s time to fess up my thoughts on the HTC Magic. Truth be told, it has truly surprised me!
The Android user interface is simple yet elegant, and was definitely designed with finger actions in mind. Unlike Windows Mobile, Android never makes you wish for
My fingers are crossed that this 99 cent application from Tiverias will be approved for the iPhone App Store. The program does little except issue push notifications (Techcrunch say’s they appear within 30 seconds) to let you know you have a new Gmail email message. The lack of push Gmail on the iPhone is one of my biggest pet peevesRead more
This morning I received an auto-response from a subscriber to a newsletter I publish for work. This person is without ANY email for 5 days while they wait for a replacement router that was damaged due to a lighting strike (Connecticut is on about the 30th day of severe late day thunderstorms). How can any business professional be without emailRead more
Late Wednesday night Gmail Labs introduced a new feature called sender time zone. The feature adds a tiny red or green icon (the color depends on the sender’s local time) to all incoming email so you can tell at a glance whether local time for the sender falls inside or outside of the workday.Read more
Google has launched a brand new Gmail mobile web engine for the iPhone and Android devices. The change incorporates HTML5 and Google Gears for Mobile, which will allow you to access your Gmail and other gear-enabled applications offline (not that anyone ever loses their 3G data connection…right?…right? *cough*).
Dan posted earlier today over at Whatsoniphone about my discovery that if you enable Advanced IMAP controls in GMAIL Labs (look under settings) and remove the check marks from your folders so that only the INBOX is checked – your iPhone will retrieve email at a blistering pace as opposed to the 3 to 5 minutes that it previously took.Read more
We just got word that Anagram is now available for both GMail and BlackBerry. This handy little utility is used to read in a signature line from your email and strip out the relevant contact information such as: company name, contact, phone, etc. Then that data is displayed for editing and finally placed into your contact file.
I’ve used this
In a move that seems to pop into the minds of hosted application companies AFTER they’ve had a widely reported failure , Google has created an Apps Status Dashboard. Here you can view the status of Google Apps (including Gmail) for the last 6 days. If there are reported outages you can click on the day’s icon for a listRead more
I know there is a lot of chatter about Google introducing offline email capabilities. So far my Google Apps for Domains account doesn’t seem to have that option (it should show in the Labs). However one thing I’ve been emailing the Geardiary team about is the speed with which my Gmail is suddenly working. Over the last week my GmailRead more
Yesterday Google add in a new experimental Labs feature to track tasks from within Gmail. If you’re a Gmail user, you’ll love this new capability. From within any email you can now create a To-Do item that opens in a small window in the lower left of your Gmail screen. Tasks can be added by turning on keyboard shortcuts withinRead more
