Make Gmail a productive centre ….

May 26, 2009

            I have been into Gmail for about 3 years.. But today Gmail is turned into the Ultimate Productive Centre… It’s already pretty clear that Gmail is the best tool for email, and integrations with calendar and chat have made it the go-to place for much of our information. But the Gmail Gadgets brings the pieces of puzzle together. Just have a look to the following gadgets to make the Gmail more productive.

1. Email: Gmail is how email should be done. With great filters, you can keep your inbox fairly clean. There are dozens of smart little innovations, from automatic contacts to a “send and archive” button and much more. If you’re not using Gmail for email yet, you should strongly consider a change.

2. To-do: Gmail only recently added a Tasks feature, something most of us have been wanting for a long time. It’s just about the simplest to-do list there is.  Its just simple as that. You can add tasks, re-order, just check it off the completed tasks. You can set time and date constraints in most simplest way. Cool feature: you can turn an email into a task, which means the task is linked to the email, and you can easily open the email by clicking on the task. Enable Gmail Tasks by going to Labs (in the upper right corner of Gmail)

3. Calendar. Google’s Calendar (Gcal) is hands down the fastest, easiest and best calendar I’ve used. And now it’s in Gmail’s sidebar, so you can see your events at a glance while in Gmail, and even add tasks quickly without having to go to the calendar. And the most interesting feature is that you can use Gcal offline just like our Google Documents and even the Gmail. Enable the GCal gadget in Gmail by going to Labs.

4. Docs. Are you still using a desktop word processing or spreadsheet app? Consider switching to Google Docs & Spreadsheets, which I use exclusively now. It’s online (with offline access now), it’s simple, it opens the usual formats, and it’s so much better for collaboration.no need to sync docs between computers or carry them around on a USB flash drive. And now, with the Docs gadget in Gmail, you can open your docs from within Gmail, making it even more of a one-stop center for all your productivity and information needs. Enable the Google Docs gadget in Gmail by going to Labs.

5. Twitter. A lot of people are finding Twitter to be an incredible place to connect with others, to find great things to read, to keep in touch with what’s happening now. But keeping your Twitter app open all the time can be unproductive. Enter Twitter Gadget, which takes seconds to install into Gmail and lets you have the most important functions of Twitter right within your all-in-one productivity center.

6. Bookmarks. Want to look up a site you bookmarked earlier? I’ve been using the delicious gadget for Gmail, and it works pretty much as you’d expect — you can see a list of your most recent bookmarks in the Gmail sidebar.This will change your online experience more productive.

8. Social media. What about other social media you might use… Put them right in Gmail with the Facebook, MySpace and Friendfeed gadgets. There are even gadgets for Digg and Flickr.

10. Offline Gmail. One of the problems people use to have with Gmail is that it’s online — meaning that if you can’t connect to the Internet ,you can’t use Gmail. Well, that’s now changed with Gmail’s offline mode — you can read, compose and organize messages while offline, which is nice.

Some Crazy people – Building the entire Gmail Interface

March 25, 2009

These guys in the video sure made designers and developers who build any interfaces not too proud because they re-paint the entire Gmail interface up from scratch, bit by bit with the use of Styrofoam. The entire interface looks as good as a real one, except that you cannot check nor compose email. But seriously, hats off for the amount of work they’ve put in. Watch the video yourself.
