Im not going to lie... If you have not seen Boomerang for Gmail yet this post is going to change your life. Well it is at least going to change the workflow of your gmail. Boomerang for Gmail lets you take control of when you send and receive email messages.
With Boomerang, you can write an email now and schedule it to be sent automatically at the perfect time. Just write the message as you normally would, then click the Send Later button. Use the handy calendar picker or the text box that understands language like "next Monday" to tell Boomerang when to send your message. It will take it from there.
Want a cleaner inbox, but don't want to lose track of important messages? Use Boomerang to take messages out of your inbox until you actually need them. Just click the Boomerang button when you have an email open, and choose when you need it again. Boomerang will archive the message. At the time you chose, it will bring it back to your inbox, marked unread, starred, or even at the top of your message list.
There are times you need to make sure you follow up within a specific time frame after sending a message. You can select to only be reminded if nobody replies, or regardless. This way you won't let messages slip through the crack and will never forget to follow up with people.
Now for the bad news. Boomerang is free to a point.
All new Boomerang accounts come with a Free 30-day Trial of Boomerang Professional. So go ahead and try it before you decide that you want to subscribe. Credit card information is not required to get started.
If you don't choose to subscribe to one of the paid subscriptions at the end of the 30 days, you can continue to use the free Basic plan as long as you'd like!
After playing with it for a while I can totally see myself parting with $5 to be able to get my Boomerang on. This app is spot on, and could really make you a Gmail ninja.
