  • (2022-10-24) Jean-Pierre Matsumoto: Privacy: Why share Browsing history is now required ? I'm not against it if there is a good reason ? And I've search some explanation without success.
  • (2022-03-23) Marcus Badach: Back to using AIB after needing to use Outlook for some contracting, I am over the moon that Andy and the team are still very responsive and the app, as always. works like a bomb. Stable, works 100% with new gmail look - this is still the best gmail add on for GTD, tasks etc. Excited about email again!!!
  • (2022-01-08) Robert Berman: once you go Active Inbox you never go back Andy Mitchell was very helpful and went above and beyond to help me in a timely fashion!!!!
  • (2021-08-04) Daniel Eddy: Director of Sales here for a US based software company. I initially looked for an inbox management solution due to a significant increase in hiring here and having to manage/sort/track resumes, recruiter emails, candidate emails etc. Active Inbox has been an amazing tool for me in all aspects of managing my inbox - getting to inbox zero is a daily goal of mine and having the ability to quickly "action date" emails so that I'm reminded of them has allowed me to maintain that zero inbox without losing important action items. I rarely write reviews, but this tool has greatly improved my efficiency and sanity.

  • (2020-07-13) Russ Michaels: I have been using this extension for years now and it adds some much needed features for dealing with emails and for anyone who does most of their business by email, it is almost a must have in order to keep on top of everything and avoid forgetting to follow up emails or chase people for responses. If more people used something like this, then perhaps I wouldn't be spending so much time constantly chasing people for responses. Sadly this great product is let down by poor support. Ironically the AIB team do not seem to use their own product, as getting responses to emails is like getting a photo of a unicorn. Support is a painful and time consuming process requiring endless chasing of emails, usually over several months and being constantly told "we will get back to you", which of course never happens. I have even had some support issues which have dragged on for years and I eventually just had to give up on them ever being resolved. If it wasn't for the rubbish support, I would be giving 5 starts.
  • (2020-02-13) Alex Ostreiko: After using this awesome extension for years, I am very disappointed that it just won't work with the primary account anymore, and it no longer works in Firefox at all. I contacted support and they were supremely unhelpful.
  • (2019-11-29) Gimo DE FAVERI: Absolutely the best! Anyone else can compete.
  • (2019-10-13) Johnny Edward Wellons, II: I look forward to using this app to simplify me checking my Gmail on a daily basis!!!
  • (2019-09-06) It looks great. But I had a problem. https://imgur.com/YY2tDE4 When I reply any emails directly, the button is hidden behind others. When I creat a new email, it works well. Can you help? Thanks
  • (2019-09-03) Cris Claessens: Perfect app GTD, and ... nice support!! Even personal reply and support after little minor update bug, thanks ActiveInbox. Now we go back flying :-)
  • (2019-07-30) I cannot imagine my life at the offie without it
  • (2019-05-25) Mark Ainley: I was introduced to Active Inbox by a business partner at the end of 2015 and I quickly set up a gmail email to test the system. I am a zero inbox guy and handle external task management out of my email so this hit home for me the 1st week I signed up. Within 60 days of my free trial we switched the entire company to a gmail email platform and introduced Active Inbox to our entire staff. When I explain Active Inbox, I use the same phrase every time "Game Changer". This allows me to place safely all important items that are not going to be really important until a later date and then it is out of my mind until I need to make them a priority. For all of our managers this gives the opportunity to followup with their reports using a measured system of followup. As a small business owner I am not sure in this day and age of email how anyone can operate their email system efficiently & effectively without Active Inbox. If anyone is ever wanting more testimonial personally please feel free to reach out directly.
  • (2018-12-23) Eric Baille: gros problèmes avec la nouvelle version de gmail. J'ai attendu plusieurs mois, envoyé plusieurs mails, mais je change à présent car je n'ai plus le temps d'attendre !
  • (2018-08-01) Since using ActiveInbox my follow-up has improved dramatically. Great GTD!
  • (2018-07-30) Francesco Eccher: Applicazione integrata perfettamente con gmail. Mi aiuta tutti i giorni ad organizzare perfettamente tutte le email che mi arrivano e i task collegati. Uso ActiveInbox già da due anni e ne sono molto soddisfatto.
  • (2018-03-14) Ken Kesslin: Elegant and effective. Turns gmail into a great GTD system. I've used AIB for the past 3 years and couldn't imagine working without it.
  • (2018-01-28) Jason Deppen: Great GTD app. Need a way to filter by Folders AND Contexts AND Users rather than just Folders OR Contexts OR Users. Need multiple ways to drill down. PS the iOS app is a great companion. Keep up the good work
  • (2018-01-04) Ihor Korsun: Do not install it. After installation it's didn't work the way it's suppose. More than that now even I removed it I still experiencing problems with gmail. I can't see content of some emails at all, which is never happens before.
  • (2017-11-22) Daniel Gallimore: used to be a very good add-on, but those times seem to be over. bad support.
  • (2017-11-04) Carlos Rebolledo Aguirre: Excelente complemento para Gmail, que me permite ordenar y gestionar en forma armónica la tradicional relación entre correos, tareas, proyectosy clientes. Ojalá incorporen las mejoras que están encuestando y mejoren la app de IOS.
  • (2017-10-06) Patrick McGrath: I have used this extension for 2 years. Very helpful in clearing high volume email.
  • (2017-10-04) Elizabeth Monnett: When I left a previous job where my email was Outlook based and went to my current one where we use Gmail, I quickly discovered that I relied on my email as a task list way more than I realized. ActiveInbox has helped bridge that gap - allowing me to add to do dates to things. I also love the 'Waiting' feature, where you can flag emails that you are waiting for a response so that you can follow up in a certain number of days. I highly recommend this to anyone stuck with Gmail as their work email and in need of a productivity boost!
  • (2017-09-25) Dusan Baranec: I will never, never use Gmail without this extension. It is something that I was searching for years...Thanks for the idea! Dusan Baranec
  • (2017-09-18) Kelly Rambo: This has really helped me stay organized. I only used it for work, but will likely begin using it for personal as well. I love when my inbox is clean and I have one place to focus on my action items. Now, I just need less action items!
  • (2017-09-13) Gabriele Paolini: It's a nice tool with great potential to make your life less miserable by keeping your inbox tidy and organised. The mobile extension is a really good add on to it. Thanks!
  • (2017-09-07) Piotr Burzynski: Bardzo pomaga w organizacji pracy zgodnie z GTD. Używam od 3 lata (pomimo tego że wymaga poprawek w wersji na Android)
