Chrome and Safari: You may have dreams of inbox zero, but actually getting there can be a bit of a chore. 0Boxer attempts to make the process more fun by creating a social competition out of organising your inbox.
Here's how it works:
- Sign in through your Google account, tying it to 0Boxer.
- Grab the 0Boxer extension for either Chrome or Safari.
- Head over to Gmail and start organising your mail. 0Boxer will start assigning you points for your activity, and you'll see a little top bar tracking your progress.
Note: It actually wasn't that straightforward for me because I tried to use a Google Apps account, but I just had to click an extra button to set the login again.
After archiving or deleting a few messages you will earn your first badge and see your stats rise. While 0Boxer keeps you informed with a little bar up top in Gmail, you can always check your full stats via your 0Boxer profile. If you want to see how you're stacking up against others, a daily leaderboard keeps track of the rankings in real time.
0Boxer is available right now for Chrome and Safari (Firefox and others coming soon), completely free.
