PowerInbox, a startup that launched just 3 weeks and demo’d at our Tech Cocktail Boston mixer last week, has released the first, and only, third party Google+ client. They posted a survey on their homepage to find what PowerApps people would love to have in their email, and Google+ won by a landslide.
Here’s how it works: when you get a “added you on Google+” email, you can add people to your existing circles. As they build it out, you will be able to create circles, view post, add comments and more – right from your email.
I spoke briefly with Matt Thazhmon, Founder and CEO about the app:
Our goal is to make email better, and with Google+, this is just the beginning. We see this as part of the future of email – being able to run apps right inside your email.
