    I'm a fan, at least when compared to the previous design. I'm an Inbox user, and the fact that so many of its unique features are now integrated into Gmail makes it a little confusing as to which app to use going forward. That said, the new features of the web app don't yet exist in any of the mobile apps, but I hope they do.

    My biggest gripe, though, is the new Tasks app. Why in the world would the tasks not be integrated with the Reminders in Keep, Google Assistant, and Calendar??? WHY???

      feels like Inbox is going to get the boot.

      also feels like Keep is going to get the boot.

      this is why i have trust issues, Google.

        Keep isn't going anywhere. Not sure about inbox either, but there certainly needs something to happen with both clients. A merge or a drop of one of them. My complaint with inbox is the expanding email lists take forever and are buggy to close.

        Google has a major problem with their product alignment. They are all over the place and internally it has to be even more of a nightmare.

          In regards to Inbox bugginess... any chance that you are using Firefox? If so, try it on Chrome and it is relatively more snappy.

            I use chrome 95% of the time. So ya. It's def. buggy/laggy for me no matter what machine I'm on.

      Google developer tweeted out that they plan on merging them but they didn't have enough time/resources/insert some other excuse here to get it done. So, I guess find solace in the fact that they agree with you and it is coming in the future. But apparently it's a lot of work.
