Steps

  1. 1
    To start off with, we're going to give our iPhone 6 a single press on the Home button here.
    It's going to open us up.

    Once we slide across, we need to find our icon.
    Swipe through the screens until you find the white square with the blue envelope check box.

  4. 4
    Give that a single press.
    It's going to open up. You'll have the little statement that "This is the inbox that works for you," and oh does it work! Although some people don't like it, I'm quite fond of it, as you may have noticed by my excessive exuberance.

  5. 5
    Now we're going to tap on 'Sign In' at the bottom.
    The sign in window is going to pop up.

  6. 6
    Enter in your email and password.
    "Create an Account" is not going to work for you until the application is out of it's invitation-only period.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Once you're signed in, Inbox is going to tell you that, "I'd like to send you notifications!" Yes, let's receive notifications from Inbox.
    Although, if you get a lot of emails like I do it might be a little irritating. But that's OK, I need to show you how this works.

  8. 8
    And we're going to tap OK.
    Alright, here we are on the first screen.
    Use Google Inbox on the iPhone 6.mp4-canvas83 08041.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  9. 9
    Swipe over.
    Next thing you do is you see that in the Inbox application, you will be able to see highlights. That means that you will instantly be able to see what is important to you. You don't need to dig through mail or shuffle. You can get right what you need to do.

  10. 10
    Next thing, we're going to add reminders.
    Reminders are always at the very top of your inbox. This means you don't have to have three or four different applications. You don't have to bounce around because you've got it all right here.

  11. 11
    Give another quick swipe over.
    Emails that you cannot access can be snoozed. I can't tell you how fantastic snoozing an email is. I wake up in the morning, open up my inbox, and I get a reminder that I want to buy some flowers for my wife later that day, then I get slammed with work. I'm running and I completely forget about that email I read until I am on the way home. I'm about to go in and realize I forgot some flowers. This way, I can snooze it. What it does is it lets me keep what's important to me in a relevant a time-sensitive way. That lets me keep things organized without spending a lot of time micro-managing them.

  12. 12
    Now, let's tap on Done.
    That's going to take us straight to our inbox. Here we go.

  13. 13
    With Inbox, everything that's considered similar by Google gets bundled together.
    For example, I can tap "Purchases." I've got downloads, an order that was canceled, verification codes, and things that have been shipped. I can either disable bundling, or I can say "Got It."

  14. 14
    I got it!
    Use Google Inbox on the iPhone 6.mp4-canvas242 309143.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  15. 15
    Now what I can do here is say that all this is done.
    Alright, check. It's all been bundled, I looked at it and I know what it is.

  16. 16
    Another thing that I can do is tap on my Updates.

  17. 17
    Again, I don't want to disable bundling here, so I'm going to click "Got it!"

  18. 18
    None of this is important to me; however if some of this was important to me, I can pin it.

  19. 19
    Now if I just want to sweep out everything else here, I still have these two messages pinned.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  20. 20
    Now if I want to get rid of everything here, I can just see what's important to me.
    A single tap of that button - right here, the "Pinned" button. I can tap that and I can see the two messages that I have just told this system are important to me.

    If I decide that they are not important to me, I can tap the message.
    Use Google Inbox on the iPhone 6.mp4-canvas322 136639.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  22. 22
    And I can unpin it.

  23. 23
    I can check it and say that's great.
    I've seen it.
    Use Google Inbox on the iPhone 6.mp4-canvas325 480206.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  24. 24
    Now I can click back here.
    And back here again. All I'm doing is tapping that pin to see what's important and what's not important.

  25. 25
    Again, if I want to remind myself of this message later, I tap on this little window here and I say remind me later today, tomorrow, next week, or any other time or place I'd like.
    That's a really cool thing about this app. You can tell it to remind you of something when you get home or any other GPS location.

  30. 30
    Now I can tap this check box here and sweep everything, but I haven't really looked through all of emails today so we're not going to sweep everything.

    However, I can tap this and go over here to this, and move it to 'Travel', 'Purchases', 'Finances', or wherever I want.

  32. 32
    I can even create a category for it, name it something, and move it to that category.
    I don't have to move it though.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  33. 33
    The other thing that I can do is click this check box, and it gets swept on out!
    There you go.

  34. 34
    We also have, if you tap yourself, a section of things that you can see.
    What's been snoozed, what's been done, what's in your inbox, what's bundled, what's in spam, what's in trash and what kind of reminders you have. These let you quickly and easily see things you might need to see, without fussing over the rest of what you've got in your inbox.

    This is just the basics of how to use this application.
    There are more advanced and complex features that power users will want to familiarize themselves with. For the rest of us, this is just a basic way to zip through your email and take care of the stuff that's important to you.

    So let's give ourselves a little press on the Home button to get back to the home screen.
    Now you can see that I have 176 messages there that I need to take care of.
