5 reasons SaneBox is better than Gmail Tabs
Three months after we launched our beta in 2010, Gmail announced Priority Inbox, which does almost exactly what we do – prioritizes emails. That was a scary day for us: half of our beta customers left. Since then, most of them came back, and today 60% of our customers are on Gmail, and prefer to pay us money for something Gmail offers for free.
We have been keeping a close watch on Gmail Tabs. Thankfully this elicited even less reaction from our user base than Priority Inbox. Here’s why:
1. SaneBox works everywhere
On any device or client - not just in the Gmail web interface (not to mention literally any email provider - not just Gmail)
2. SaneBox is smarter
Our algorithms are personalized based on your past behavior (which emails you open, which you respond to, how quickly, how often etc). That makes us much more accurate for you personally.
3. SaneBox is simpler and more powerful at the same time
If you like things easy, you get 1 other place to look (SaneLater folder - that’s where all unimportant emails go). But if you’re OCD, you can create lots of optional filtering rules and folders.
4. SaneBox does way more than just filtering
BlackHole (unsubscribe with 1 click), snooze non-urgent emails, reminders to follow up with people who ignored your emails, moving attachments to Dropbox, monitoring your spam folder for emails caught there by mistake, etc (and LOTS more cool stuff in the works). Watch this video.
5. SaneBox is not free
Although it’s questionable if it’s better or worse - you are our customer, not our product. We will never sell your data or annoy you with ads. You can try it free for 2 weeks, and our plans start at $2/month - that’s not that much to ask, is it? ;)
