Gmail vs. Inbox vs. Outlook – Reliability, Customization And Archiving

When e-mails first started becoming a thing, most of us were slowly getting used to propping ourselves in front of our computers every night when we got home in order to check our inbox. Remember what a tragedy it was when it completely slipped your mind to check your e-mail for a couple of nights in a row, and an important message slipped through the cracks? Fortunately, in today’s app-optimized world, that’s no longer an issue we concern ourselves with, because we all have e-mail apps on our smartphones or tablets.

The cool thing about e-mail apps is that they allow you to do everything the desktop version of the site would, like read, send, save drafts, delete e-mails and so on, but it also sends you real-time notifications whenever you receive something new. However, there are also a lot of choices out there for such apps. So, which one should you choose?


Needless to say, Gmail is an Android user’s first choice, because it’s so perfectly integrated in any Android device, you just need to connect it to your account and you’re all set. And, on top of that, Gmail is also known for being one of the most reliable e-mail services in the world.


Outlook is the best choice for iOs devices, especially iPhones, because it supports all sorts of accounts, such as Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo, Outlook, Gmail and iCloud. In a nutshell, Outlook hosts some of the most widely-used e-mail services in the world, so you won’t miss a thing. You can also customize a lot of things about the app, such as swipe and archiving options.


Inbox might seem obsolete compared to Gmail, especially when considering it’s another Google mailing service. However, the app is different from its sibling in a very refreshing way. So, if you’re looking for a new kind of user experience, maybe you should give it a try.
