GMail vs GInbox - One Father Two Sons


We all have have our inboxes filled  of email, right?
1000+ of emails and its not at all easy to figure out the important ones :)
So coming to the point.
Here we are comparing two apps named Gmail 5.0  and  the new Inbox .
Taking about Gmail 5.0 First


After being teased back at Google I/O and then appearing in numerous images here and there, as well as being featured in a ROM built for the Nexus 4, we can finally talk about its beauty (and new functionality). In case you were wondering, yes, this is the Material Design update with ripples, layers and transitions that also includes support for Exchange and other email accounts like Yahoo, Outlook, AOL, etc. You now have an all-in-one email client on Android that has been built by the Gmail team. How awesome does that sound?

Taking About The Structure

The first thing you will notice is the big, beautiful red action bar at the top of the app that blends into the status bar. We have a pulled out hamburger menu icon, a move that seems to be born from Material Design. Tap that icon or swipe from the left and you expose the slideout menu that houses your accounts (including Outlook, Yahoo, etc.) and email categories/tags.
This is How You Submit Different Accounts
The rest of the app is mostly the same, in terms of settings, notifications, and swiping. I didn’t notice any new settings or options in notifications, plus the swipe-to-archive/delete is the same. You still won’t find swipes across messages that can do multiple actions, like you will in Google’s new Inbox app.

Options Avaliable

Inbox is a new interface of Google, which intelligently categorises your email, allows you to hide messages until later and highlights the most important information from your inbox.
Do I get a new email address?
No, Google Inbox is really just a new interface for your existing Gmail account.
You keep your existing address, and you can even still use the regular Gmail interface if you wish.
Google say the standard Gmail interface isn't going anywhere - Inbox is an optional extra.

1. Snooze emails

Previously seen in third-party clients (most notably Mailbox), Inbox lets you snooze emails to deal with later—it's the same as archiving Emails except these messages pop back into view after a predefined time. In the apps, swipe left on a thread; on the webs,click the clock icon. Available options include later today, tomorrow, next week or some day. The email remains snoozed until you manually move it back.

2. Enhanced Search engine

As with the main Google portal, the idea is that you don't even need to finish your search to see the information you need.

3. Create reminder
Reminders are a Google Now feature really, but they make it into Google Inbox as well. You can create simple reminders that hang around as sticky posts in the Inbox view and the Pinned view. Unfortunately, there's no ability to associate a reminder with a particular time, date or location (as you can in Google Now) so presumably Google will improve this feature over time.

4.Pin emails

Pinned emails are to Inbox what starred emails are to standard Gmail. You can quickly view pinned messages—"emails you need to get back to" in the words of Google—by toggling the master switch at the top of the Inbox interface on Web and mobile. Emails that you've snoozed are automatically pinned and show up in the same view as well as any reminders that you've created.

5. Use the Low Priority label
It's likely that a lot of the email traffic that arrives in your inbox is "low priority" and Google does make some attempt to sift out automatic emails, special offers, confirmation messages, social updates and the like. Inbox introduces a new Low Priority label that you can use instead of or alongside bundles like Social and Promotions. Find it on the app's main menu to activate it.

6. Building bundles

Bundles are another of the headline features of Inbox but you might find yourself a little wary of the way they automatically hoover up many of your incoming messages. They're like the preset tabs in the Gmail Priority Inbox, but they stay in line with your other messages. You can move individual emails to and from these bundles, and (as with Priority Inbox) each time you do this the app will ask if you want to sort these kinds of emails automatically in the future.
Over all Its an awesome & worthy upgrade for me.
The new inbox  looks far too much impresive to be ignored; initially you need to have an Invite :)

A new app that claims to tell when you will die


Developers of a new app claim it can determine the date of your death by analysing data on your lifestyle, height, blood pressure, sleep and physical activity.
The app, called Deadline, uses iPhone's Healthkit to "determine your date of expiration."
Healthkit tool records statistical information, like the user's height and diastolic blood pressure, and monitors their sleep and the amount of steps they take in a day.
A new app that claims to tell when you will die

The Deadline app analyses data on your lifestyle, height, blood pressure, sleep and physical activity.

Using this data and a short survey with more questions about their lifestyle, the app determines the approximate date and time of a person's demise, and then counts down how much time they have left, 'bustle.com' reported.
The app's developers Gist LLC pointed out in the product's description, "no app can really accurately determine when you will die."
Instead, the company suggests using the app as a way to monitor your own health and motivate yourself to make better lifestyle choices or consult a physician, if necessary. Users can change their predicted date of death by following a healthy diet and an active exercise routine.

How Einstein Started


Einstein’s start in life, if boiled down to a formula, would be something like this:


Tinkering with a compass + contempt for school and authority + thought experiments + having an office next to a clock tower and a train station + a government job with a boss who turned a blind eye to what he did at work = genius.

Thinking Visually

There is more to it, according to Walter Isaacson, the biographer, Einstein was an obsessive reader. There was a school that practiced a new teaching method – a visual thinking method. There was a lover,  the only female physics student, who became a sounding board for Einstein’s early work. There was an uncle who was an electrical engineer, letting Einstein ticker with lights.  And another rich uncle in Belgium who was certain Albert was a prodigy ever since he was a kid.

How Einstein Really Started – A Thought Experiment

But what was at the beginning of it all? According to Walter Isaacson’s book, it was a compass. A five-year old Albert was lying in bed sick when his father brought him a compass to play with. Albert asked how it worked. No, just saying that compasses work because of Earth’s magnetic field was not enough. He wanted to know how it really worked.  He wanted to visualize it.
Since that encounter with a compass, and many books later, there was one book that especially stuck Albert’s imagination. So much that he started visualizing in his head everything he read in it. This book was People’s Book on Natural Science. The author specifically asked his reader to take an imaginary trip through space. And Einstein did. At 15, while walking around Italian countryside, he first imagined what it would be like to ride along a beam of light. That was his first thought experiment, one of many more that would later make him who he became.
About his thought experiments, Einstein famously said;
 The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

Get Gmail 5.0 for Android right now


Editors' Note, November 3, 2014: The link to the Gmail 5.0 APK has been updated to point to a newer version.
The newest version of the Gmail app features auto-updating email threads, the ability to add accounts from other email providers and Exchange support. This means that you'll no longer need to use two separate apps to access your email.
Want to try it out? Luckily, Android Police has just acquired the Android package (APK) of Gmail 5.0, and has shared it on its APK Mirror website. This means you can get a copy of it now and don't have to wait for the update through Google Play.
The APK is signed by Google, which guarantees its authenticity.
Here's how to get started:


Grab a copy of Gmail 5.0 from APKMirror. Once the download finishes, tap the notification and then press the Install button. This APK is signed and authentic, meaning that it will upgrade the version of Gmail you currently have installed.
                                                     Adding an account in Gmail 5.0.

After the app introduction, you'll be prompted to sign in. You can use your current Gmail if you want to get into the app right away or you can add accounts from other providers. The new version of Gmail supports accounts from Yahoo, Outlook, AOL Mail and others that use IMAP/POP. However, these accounts will not use push notifications, and you'll be asked to set a sync interval.
                                                     Switch between accounts.
If you add multiple accounts, you can switch between them by opening the left-hand slide-out menu and swiping across your profile banner. You can also tap the small arrow and choose an account from the list.

Exchange support

If you want to add Exchange support to your Gmail client, you'll need to download an additional APK.
If you installed Gmail 5.0 first, you may need to force stop your Gmail app in order for it to recognize the Exchange capabilities. This can be done by going to Settings > Applications > Gmail > Force stop.
After this, you'll be able to add your Exchange accounts just like the others above.
This new version is very similar to the last, save for the Material design and under-the-hood account support.
