Capture17-03-2008-7.59.58 PM Email is once again being recognized as the future for social networking. Unfortunately for many of us that spend a third of every day in the corporate setting, Microsoft Outlook is the email client we are given, whether we choose it or not. Now Outlook has its benefits, it’s actually pretty great as a calendar/email application. The todos are hard to use effectively, and overall message management is terrible.

Xobni steps in at this point and offers users of Outlook a solution to finding messages related to a particular person, or even people related to someone.


If you’d like a beta invite, leave me a comment here and we’ll see what I can do for you. Of course you need to be running Outlook as your email client. Check out the links above to find out more through their website and demo video.

Gmail is still my favourite app for email, and that’s what I use for all of the UrbanWorkbench accounts, but while at work, life has become much easier since upgrading Outlook with Xobni – and it’s only in beta!
