MailHero claims to be the best Gmail extension ever – could they be right?

Gmail is already awesome, but MailHero will launch soon to fill in the gaps the email service has yet to address.



MailHero could be the only Gmail tool you’ll ever need

Google has consistently proven themselves to be pioneers in the field of efficiency. Not only does it provide the most commonly-used search engine (and, appropriately, the most efficient one), it allows access to incredible resources through its news and scholar services.

Additionally, Gmail has been the cleanest, quickest, and most professional-looking email provider for quite some time, covering everything from the average family member to college students to whole businesses.

Gmail is killing it, but MailHero fills in the gaps

Folks, let’s face the facts: Gmail has pretty much been killing it in the all-around email department. It should come as no surprise, then, that the generally docile provider has come to life recently with updates, improved aesthetics, tighter networking with Google Plus, and most importantly, the up-and-coming MailHero —the “all in one extension” for “the future of Gmail.”

Earlier this year, we wrote about Gmail’s integrated “snooze” button. MailHero includes this feature, as well as several others: one-click cloud access, email tracking (similar to Facebook’s read receipts—intriguing concept, as it allows you to pinpoint your most effective window of response time!), scheduled emails, defaulted linked messages, reminders, quick reply (the Gmail version of speed dial), and the ability to view, organize, and browse attachments with ease. The service also includes a series of email templates, should you feel the need to map out the perfect correspondence.

Skyrocket your efficiency, folks

It goes without saying that a program so comprehensive as MailHero will be an invaluable asset on the efficiency front. More importantly, however, this service will allow companies to network through Gmail with ease.

Essentially, we’re seeing the push Google has been building for years: the push to become as social network. With MailHero, we’re going to see a lot of businesses and independent professionals coming together under the Gmail banner. This is bigger than Google Buzz or Google Plus; the potential for growth and consolidation of professional assets here is tremendous.
