It is not only your email inbox that contains a flood of Inbox, even the display of the main message list and the individual message screen are great duplications of what we have seen in Inbox.

Unfortunately, Inbox Theme for Gmail is exactly that – a theme for the desktop version of Gmail. That means popular Inbox functions such as Bundles that automatically organize e-mails, the integrated reminder system, pinned messages, the article-saving system and extra shortcuts are nowhere to be seen.

But close your eyes and open them after a few seconds. For a warm minute you might think that Inbox is not dead anyway.
