For personal usage :
I switched to any.do ( which also allows to frwd emails to do@any.do email and add it as a task/reminder.for notes without reminders ( shopping list ,recepies etc) I continue to use keep. Keep reminders when you have a lot of them get me in the mess.reminders in the calendar requires you to enter and review.anydo moments does it every morning automatically. For a work purposes I'm using kanbanflow.com which has built in kanban - probably Trello will do the same but needs to be costumize. Inbox wasn't perfect ( I missed the option to prioritize tasks ) but was in the good direction.


I spent hours of moving my reminders into gmail (as emails) and trello (as todos). Still have not decided to use Keep and/or notes.

I will miss Inbox, but at least I will get rid of the 15s+ loading times.


Yeah, I started moving reminders to gmail, but then I had a tendency to change the reminder text and fine tune it over time, now I lost that ability except for change "subject" which is possible in gmail but creates a duplicate mail entry.


Here’s my setup after ditching Inbox because of the recent news that Google is shutting it down:

  1. Notes - Bear - both iOS and Mac (costs $2/m for sync and custom themes, well worth it)
  2. Things 3 - both iOS and Mac (costs a lot more, but very much worth it as well)
  3. Spark Email - iOS (use gmail web on Mac)

I’m pretty happy with this setup, works very wel for me.


I use Gmail mostly for browser time, because of Inbox's long loads, but on Android, man Inbox was CRUCIAL. Best email app for a mobile device, period. For my reminders/tasks I use Todoist, because for some reason Google insists on hiding their Task app under a bunch of other crap and I never know if my reminders are global or just for Keep/Tasks/Inbox/etc.

We'll survive this, but we don't have to like it.


APIs + All Your Free Time For 6 Months (or more) = the same thing

Do it!


Totally gonna miss Inbox, too. The new Gmail has a lot of the features, but not all.


I'm with you on this. Inbox was the best thing to happen to email. Ever

I use followupthen.com for that sort of stuff. Closest I could do in companies that weren't in the Googlesphere.
