Dispatch Comes to the iPad, at Last

Dispatch has long been one one of my favorite email apps on the iPhone. Lately, I’ve been going back and forth between Dispatch and Spark. I suspect I may be switching to Dispatch full time now, though, since Clean Shaven Apps has just released an update to the app to make it universal.

While those complaints are understandable, they aren’t entirely correct. Mailbox is no worse with labels than the default Mail app in iOS. Here’s how to get limited support for Gmail labels in Mailbox.

Defer Items in Your Outlook Inbox, and Get to Inbox Zero, With Boomerang for Outlook

boomerang for outlook logoI’ve been using Mailbox on my iPhone for over a week now, and one of the features that I like the best is the ability to defer items in my email inbox. With a swipe and a tap, I can temporarily get an item out of my inbox, and set it to reappear at a future date (yes, I can hear the GTDer’s out there screeching in horror that I don’t just move it into my GTD system). I like the feature so much that I longed for the ability to do the same on my desktop at work, where we use Microsoft Outlook. The hunt was on.
