Xobni Thoughts

I received my beta version of Xobni today. If you aren't sure what that is, you can visit my post here or visit their website here. If you are an Apple user...then once again, you can just move on. This is for us die-hard PC users.

You have to keep in mind that this is a beta version, so I will not talk about little gliches or problems, as this can be chalked up to beta testing. However, I did want to share some of the cool things I have seen so far.

It installs really fast. Once I opened up Outlook, it took about 30 seconds to synchronize with Outlook. Of course, I keep my mailbox pretty neat and tidy, so if you have a deeper level of emails then it may take longer.

My initial thought is this is going to be pretty cool. I clicked on an email, and instantly I had a list of every email that I have received or sent from this person, plus any attachments. This is going to be huge when looking for stuff I might have sent a customer or received from a customer.

So far, I rate it an A- (the minus is only so there is room for improvement). I will let you know more once I have a chance to dig in and really mess with it.

....and thanks for the download Jason!!! I like it. Especially the email history. I can see myself using this very often while working on different projects.
