To be honest, I'm not sure what different swipes do on your favourite email app, because every app is a little bit different. And it's possible that you don't like how your favourite email app handles swiping. Maybe you'd rather delete messages than archive them; maybe you just like swiping in one direction over another.

Google has a long history of introducing, then forgetting about, and finally officially killing off its products. Most recently, that included Google Spaces, a service that most of us never knew existed to begin with. Let's take a tour of some of our favourite services Google's killed off over the years.
A few weeks ago Google announced a host of updates and tweaks to Gmail, including the ability to read and respond to messages while you're offline. A number of the changes were made live then, but that offline mode wasn't quite ready. Last week during the company's annual developer conference, Google officially made offline mode available for Gmail users. Here's how to give it a try
It will come as no surprise that, as the editor of a website devoted to productivity, I'm obsessive about refining the details of my tech life to be certain every element is helping me get the job done. While I have software that I swear by (WriteRoom, Deckset, Evernote), I'm more of an evangelist for browser extensions.
My favourite Chrome extensions are lightweight, easy-to-install and usually free, but the effect they have on my productivity is profound. These are the extensions that I love most fervently and recommend most frequently.
Yesterday, our sister site Gizmodo posted a story about one of Gmail's new tools: Snoozing, the ability to put your emails to bed until you're well and ready to deal with them. It was described as a "terrible idea" but I'm here to tell you that Snoozing is one of my favourite features - if you use it appropriately.
Did you get the new Gmail update yet? (If not, see if there's a Try the new Gmail option on the web settings menu.) One of its major new features is the ability to snooze emails, something we've seen in various apps before. We're here to tell you why snoozing is bad, why you should avoid it, and what to do instead.
The new Gmail has landed and you can get it right now. You're likely very comfortable with Gmail's previous iteration, but the new one has a host of features that aims to make your digital postbox a lot more easy to manage.
Here's the new features you'll want to master.
iOS/Android: Google is rolling out a huge new update for its Gmail web app, and one of the most exciting features is the ability to snooze important emails. If you're a procrastinator like me, but you prefer checking your email on a smartphone, you aren't out of in luck. The Gmail apps for iOS and Android also recently added a snooze feature.
Google Tasks has been around for nearly 10 years. While digital to-do lists are great for keeping yourself organised, Google's attempt always felt like a half-effort. With no official mobile app, you had to turn to a third-party app to access your tasks from your smartphone or tablet, or you had to pull up the mobile version of Gmail on your favourite browser - as if.
Google has officially announced the new look that's coming to Gmail.com after images of its redesign leaked a few days prior. The revamp brings with it, besides a much-need paint job, some long-awaited features that users could only get through third-party email clients.
It was recently confirmed that the new Gmail will contain a 'Confidential Mode' which will allow users send emails that will be destroyed after a set period of time.
This is cool and all, but there are still significant questions that need to be answered around compatibility and security.
The good news is that there are a bunch of alternative email clients that offer far more features and privacy.
Gmail is about to get a major facelift with a bunch of new features and an updated user interface. But along with many cosmetic changes come others that will chnage the way we use email. Among the updates that will be coming, you'll be able to mark messages as confidential which will give you lots of power over how email is handled.
If you use Gmail and Google Calendar, planning an event over email should be easy, but it can be annoying to jump back and forth between the two apps to check your availability. Now, it looks as though Google finally has a solution to this first-world problem, and you'll find it in a major update coming to Gmail's desktop view.
There comes a time when enough is, quite simply, enough. I had been putting off the task of organising my sprawling Gmail inbox for months, if not years. But when Lifehacker told me that we were going to have a Spring Cleaning week, I knew it was time. And I wasn't going to waste precious hours trying to find apps or tools to do the task for me. I needed to Ron Swanson my inbox -- roll up my sleeves, jump in, and manage the mess manually.
It can be hard to start an email, but it feels even worse when you're going insane after sending the same canned response to a question for the ninth time this week. If you'd like a little help replying to the messages in your ever-growing inbox, EasyEmail uses machine learning (along with your email data) to auto-generate potential replies you're too lazy to type yourself. (Whether the Chrome extension's features are worth a mild invasion of privacy is up to you.)
