Why waste time searching for directions using Google Maps or reviews on Yelp when InboxFever can do the heavy lifting for you? InboxFever is a web-app that you can use to find the answers you’re looking for without leaving your email inbox. Just send a query to a special InboxFever email address and you can expect an immediate response with whatever answer you’re looking for. With InboxFever, you can get directions, reviews, and stock quotes delivered directly to your inbox without having to waste time sifting through content online.
The number of ways that you can make use of InboxFever is increasing every day, as more and more applications are added for users to choose from, but the gist of the application remains the same. When you use InboxFever, you can accomplish tasks from right inside your email inbox. Let’s say your wife asked you to find a sushi restaurant to take the kids to for dinner. Send an email to email@example.com with a description of what you want in the subject line—such as Los Angeles, Sushi—and a list of options from Yelp will arrive immediately in your inbox. The same goes for driving directions; InboxFever’s Google Maps app can get you going to the right place in just a few seconds’ time. InboxFever can also help with business-related tasks. Convert a document to a PDF by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org or get stock quotes quickly by typing a company’s stock symbol into the subject line of an email and sending it to email@example.com.
From a business perspective, InboxFever is a tool that developers can use to build their own applications that can be run through email networks. Although the application’s gallery of featured apps is small right now, it will continue to grow as developers begin building more new products to showcase on the InboxFever site.
