Xobni, the social messaging plugin that makes your inbox smarter is going to make your Outlook messaging more productive today with the launch of a Gadgets store with collaboration and productivity service applications such as Dropbox, Evernote, JIRA, Klout, Salesforce, WebEx, and Yammer.
Xobni’s social messaging plugins make your email smarter (Xobni is an inbox spelled backwards). The plugin integrates LinkedIn, Twitter, Yahoo Mail, Facebook, Skype, Hoovers and more into your Outlook inbox. The company, which has raised more than $ 30 million in funding, also recently launched a plugin for Gmail as well as iPhone and Android apps. To date, Xobni’s Mirosoft Outlook plugin has seen almost seven million downloads.
The Gadgets store Allows users to access free and paid apps for productivity apps and services from Xobni for Outlook, allowing developers to integrate their services seamlessly into Outlook’s email workflow. In this context, the company launched a feature last year that allows users to integrate Gmail gadgets into Outlook.
Gadgets are included in the Xobni sidebar, and users can choose from nearly 20 services and apps for web document sharing, lead tracking, issue reporting and monitoring, note taking, and more. . Current Xobni gadgets include Dropbox, Evernote, GoldMail, Google Translate, Atlassian JIRA, WebEx, Huddle, Microsoft SharePoint, Salesforce Chatter, Yammer, Facebook, Flickr, Hoover’s, Klout, LinkedIn, Twitter, Xing, YouTube, Yelp, and Salesforce CRM.
For example, you can add the Evernote gadget to Xobni to allow users to access their notes directly from the inbox. You can also access your Salesforce CRM or Chatter account data in your Xobni Outlook inbox.
While the Gadget Store is exclusive to the Outlook version of Xobni, it will eventually expand to the Gmail plugin.
