Here's a little gem in honor of this month's theme: Priority Inbox for your mobile device.
Launched last fall, Priority Inbox targets the average corporate worker, who, according to a 2010 e-mail statistics report from The Radicati Group, sends and receives more than 150 messages per day.
The tool uses algorithms and tracked behavioral patterns to automatically categorize messages as they arrive in your inbox. Should Google make a mistake, you can adjust the rating manually with a set of plus and minus buttons (sort of like Pandora).
Now, once you set up Priority Inbox in the desktop version of Gmail, Google says you’ll be able to access a Priority Inbox section when you visit gmail.com from your mobile device's browser:
Says the Internet giant's official announcement:
If you’ve ever cursed a phone’s tiny screen as utterly inadequate for sifting through an overflowing inbox you’ll be pleased to hear that the Gmail mobile web app now supports Priority Inbox. Priority Inbox helps combat information overload by automatically identifying your important messages so you can focus on those first. Until today it was only available on the desktop and on Android devices.
Google says the feature is available for most mobile browsers that support HTML5, such as devices running Android 1.5+ and iOS 3+.
