Anyone using Google/Gmail Inbox? Is it cool or hype or what? Can someone send me an invite? I'm not sure if I care about it, but i got bit by the curiosity bug.

Every th red months I have to go through a newsletter unsub purge.
http://i.imgur.com/vXU0Vnq.png - Shoot me a PM with your email address if you want one of the invites. I'm headed to take care of some stuff related to a house fire we had last week, so I may not be able to send out invites until this evening.
Invites are gone. I'll post up again when/if I get some more.
I love this, wish I could use it for my corporate mail but don't see that happening anytime soon (Google needing to read it to parse it into categories, etc)
I've been pretty good about following inbox zero and moving tasks into gqueues (task manager). Also using a snooze script (here) to make email disappear until the day I need it. I'm using that to script move some longer/unimportant things to the weekend.
I set the script to update at 1am, so before I go to bed, I get a small influx of emails reappearing. Good time to take care of some (e.g. if I snoozed it because I need to send a reminder to someone) or re-snooze them as appropriate (e.g. something related to a reimbursement that I don't want to lose track of, but that will likely take more than a week).
I also snooze shipping confirmations to the day I expect them to be delivered.
Looks like I got another round of invites. I have one left if you send me your gmail address.
Edit: Annnnd like that it was gone. I'll post up more invites when I get them.

Send me an invite once you get more please.
Note: I'm not sure exactly how I did it - but when logging into the wife's gmail on my phone after enabling Inbox on my main email address, it immediately tossed her gmail an invite. So for those of you that have a close friend that you'd trust with your gmail login a few, that might be a quick way in to play with potentially.
Maybe I'm not popular enough but I get ~5 emails a day I care about.
Now if google had a service where I could have all my real mail scanned in and emailed to me and the paper waste recycled (or burned instead stores that send out prolific amounts of junk mail) I'd use it!

Tuco: That's rather the point to Inbox which it does very well, it condenses everything into topics - so personal emails that I care about are one section, updates to scheduled things or payments go into their own category, and promos with my restaruant coupons etc (which I'm getting a shitload of right now being that my birthday is Sunday) get their own section.
It's like a much better Spam filter - it's actually made me start going through and unflagging some of the old coupon things that I marked as spam because I just got tired to getting my mailbox cluttered with them, for the few that I actually fish through spam for occasionally.
Anyone got a spare invite?
I tried, and both times I got a failure to deliver:
The user you are trying to contact is receiving mail at a rate that prevents additional messages from being delivered. For more information, please visit 'The Gmail user you are trying to contact is receiving mail at a rate...' - Gmail Help c8si8962528qab.47 - gsmtp
So I got an invite, even though I sent the email past the 1 hour mark. That's cool.
Question... I clicked the "sweep" button, and it said it would effect 77 emails, even though I'm not entirely sure what sweep meant, or what 77 emails it was effecting, and now it looks like my entire Promotions tab, back in Gmail, is gone? wtf? There were plenty of emails in my Promotions tab that I didn't want deleted?
Edit: Oops, they are still all there under Promo's, only in Inbox though... odd...

I got the reply yesterday that they got my email and I'd be sent an invite as soon as possible, but never got an invite.
Okay, send the invite to [email protected]? Or, you know, maybe a real email address?
Edit - Okay, I got a few PM's for invites. Sorry I couldn't get to all of you guys but hopefully I'll have more soon. Ameraves, Harfle, Abefroman, you guys should have 'em.

If anyone has spare invites suineg Gmail and thank you.

They finally sent me my invite, days later, so I'll see if I end up with any extra for installing it.
So what is the point of this? I have it, but I'm not really sure what advantages there are to using this.
To tell people who don't have it that you have it. Be extra douchey and call it your 'ginbox'.
I am having a hard time getting used to Inbox because the newest emails aren't always at the top of the list, and I am paranoid about an important email getting misfiled and hidden under "updates" or "social" categories that I don't want to check regularly.
I'm not really sure what the point of this was either. I created custom filters and folders in my gmail already.. so.. what is this for..
Yeah, I'm a little underwhelmed by it as well. Not sure I like it. Maybe once I get it all set up (not sure I care enough to devote much time though) and get used to the change it will be ok, but for now it is just confusing.
It's nice for reminders and snoozing emails. If you use it exactly the same as you use any other email, yeah, you probably wont see the point.
Well, I can't even activate it because I don't have a smartphone.
Looks like I have 5 invites left currently. Feel free to send me a gmail address and I'll get them out sometime today.
Anyone got anymore invites? Would appreciate one!
I used it for about 20 minutes before I got sick of the double notifications and was too lazy to disable one or the other from gmail/inbox so I just uninstalled it.
