"Smart inbox management"

Reviewed by / Jun 28, 2013

Boomerang is a gestures-based e-mail manager for Android

Using gestures to manage e-mail is trend. In fact, it's one of the handiest and fastest way to manage e-mail and let things tied up. Although the official app of is already integrating them, there's still a long way to go. For this reason, apps like Boomerang which, by now, are a step further on this field, can become a great alternative for those concerned about efficiency and productivity.

Boomerang only supports Gmail and Google Apps accounts, so far (more services will be added gradually). Linking your Gmail account to Boomerange is as easy as select the account and type your password. Once the account is linked you can start managing more efficiently your inbox by gestures. Swipe to the right on any e-mail received to archive it (you can undo any action for a few seconds after applying it). Swipe to the left to display a bar of multi-actions that can be performed: archive, delete, mark as unread, tag, star and boomerang. The latter is the genuine feature of this app: boomeranging a message will bring it back to your inbox when you need in the future (tonight at..., tomorrow, in 2 days, next week, in a month, etc.)

Boomerang is set in Holo layout, that's it, with that swipable left-side menu that allows fast access to main features of the app. The way sections and features are displayed makes navigation way more intuitive than other e-mail clients. You can easily switch between your different accounts. The app runs smoothly.

The only catch is related to design: it's overall good but it should be more customizable. In addition, although the added-value feature (access to actions by swiping) is quite clear now, Gmail official app is quite close to this one, and looks better.

By now, Boomerang only integrates Gmail and Google Apps accounts (more will be coming soon).

“More than a clever reminder system, the app uses gesture controls (swipe right to archive, left for snooze and other options) and can schedule outgoing emails, too.” -Engadget.com

“Boomerang allows users to schedule messages to send at a predetermined date and time, or "boomerang" them back into their inbox if there's no reply or if a message requires follow-up.” -AndroidPolice.com

“The app offers a few options above and beyond what Google’s offering provides. In addition to being able to schedule emails, you can also snooze received messages and track responses to emails you’ve sent.” -Lifehacker.com

    Usé esta app hasta que comencé a tener problemas. Investigando llegué a mxHero y debo decirles que no la cambio por nada! viene con una extensión para Chrome lo que hace su uso mucho más cómodo. Además es totalmente gratis, deberían probarla!

    Does what it is supposed to. A little slow in updating inbox on my Galaxy Tab. But I can live with that.

    If I open an email contains images, the email keeps scrollong up when I scroll down and that gices a hard time especially when trying to select a text. Also there no option to retuen to inbox instead of going to next message after deleting an email.
