Although Dev102 is a blog about software tips, web and technology reviews, I want to introduce you something which is a little bit out of context. Most people, know and use Microsoft Outlook as their email application and are spending too much time searching for conversations, attachments, and other important information in their inbox. A company names Xobni introduce us a free Outlook plugin which offers a new way to organize and search the Outlook email.


The name Xobni, is the word “inbox” spelled backwards and as written in their site, this name is an affirmation of their mission: to “take back” the email inbox for the users. After installing this software, a new Xobni toolbar appear in Outlook so when a new email arrives, the sender’s full history appears in the Xobni sidebar, including past conversations, attachments and contact details. This is done because Xobni creates profiles for each person that emails you. These profiles contain relationship statistics, contact information, social connections, threaded conversations, and shared attachments.

There are some more great features in this tool, here are some of them:

  • Instant Search: the email and people you’re looking for pop out immediately, as you type, in 0.3 seconds which is much more faster than the regular Outlook search.
  • Email analytics: rankings, graphs, and statistics detailing how you and your contacts use email.
  • One-Click Scheduling: schedule appointments with ease by automatically finding open slots in the calendar.

For further details and download link, enter to Xobni site. If your inbox is flooded, this plugin can be very helpful. Try it out and tell me and the other readers if you like it.
