3 Must Have Apps for GMail

An invisible, smart layer of the web is emerging. Browser applications are innovating by bringing useful data and powerful new functions to the most popular destinations on the web.

If you look hard enough (many of them are underground), you can find apps which enhance Reddit, Hacker News, Facebook, and many more.

Here are three extraordinary browser apps making GMail better.

Graph Your Inbox

This app enables a radical new view of the emails you’ve archived. Perform typical GMail search queries such as “from:(email)” or “label:Sales” and instantly have those messages charted by volume and time.

The charts are really interesting to look over. I’ve found it’s a great way to track my affiliate sales, PayPal and social activities.


Just introduced to the world today, EmailOracle is bringing back an old email marketing concept and giving it to the public. Yes, now you can track when people open your sent emails!

By embedding an invisible image and monitoring it from EmailOracle’s server, they are able to deliver this useful information to you seamlessly. EmailOracle has another cool feature for reminding you to follow up if a response is not received in a timely manner.


This excellent service displays additional information about the people who email you.  Rapportive searches the web for connections to email addresses on public networks and is able to find photos, formal titles, and links to social network profiles.

As a social media power networker, I am often delighted to find additional connections to people I may otherwise never have had.

    Hey Mark, thanks for including us your list — it's much appreciated! Here's a pro Rapportive tip: try hovering over a sender or recipient's name, or over any email address: the sidebar will change to look them up 🙂

    I have been using Gmail for nearly 5 years now and I have been thinking of adding some apps to Gmail, but never found any. This is a great post, I mean, this was very much useful for me especially.

    Enail Oracle is particularly useful for business emails, in case the owner forgets to get back to a potentially important email.
