Xobni released

After seven months of invite-only beta, Xobni is now publicly available for anyone to download.

I like the idea of Xobni (that’s inbox backwards), and actually tried it out during beta.  It does cool things with searching through your inbox folders, pulling out useful information like telephone numbers, attachments, grouping conversations and that sort of thing.

However, surely it doesn’t really work terribly well if you follow the whole Inbox Zero thing because you end up with nothing to search.

Maybe they’ll bring out Orez Xobni for those occasions.

Xobni – it’s inbox backwards!

I came across Xobni in a review in PC Plus magazine. It’s an add-on for Microsoft Outlook that adds some pretty cool social networking tools based entirely on your email:

  • Who do you contact most often, and who contacts you?
  • When do they email you most?
  • It automatically extracts contact information
  • It tracks connections between you and others
  • Fast and clever searching

There’s a longer demo on the site which is worth checking out.
