Google now realizes Outlook is here to stay. Xobni welcomes you.

Here at Xobni, we’ve been saying it for a long time: Outlook is the biggest email client in the world both in terms of engagement and total users. In terms of engagement it has more time in front of a user than any other application (including the web browser) on a business user’s machine. We also realized that while Outlook is huge and entrenched there are some big gaps in what it does and what people would like it to do. Enter Xobni.

We have spent the last 3 years taming Outlook and bringing lightning fast search and people-centric information organization to our users. This is something our users know, but is particularly interesting today in light of the announcement from Google where they announced support of Outlook with Google Apps. What does this mean? It means any Google Apps premium user can now use Outlook to read and write their email. This also means Google Apps users can now use Xobni with their Outlook.

Now Google Apps users can take advantage of these great Xobni features:

• Lightning Fast Search
• Email conversation threading
• Pictures, status, and profile information from Facebook, Linkedin & Hoovers
• Automatic phone number extraction
• Attachment management
• Powerful email analytics
• And more…

We spent the afternoon testing Xobni with the new Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook and we are compatible. Now all of those Google Apps users out there that wanted to use Xobni, but couldn’t because their environment didn’t support Outlook, can now give Xobni a try. Welcome aboard!

    Hmmm, I understand Google’s move more as an effort to move users away from outlook and not vice-versa. Although this does mean that xobni will be able to interact with Google app servers in the short term, I would be careful to call this good news.

    Looking at the big picture, I hardly expect that supporting fat email clients is part of their long-term strategy (see Google Wave).

    Kudos to the xobni team: the email business is on the verge of great changes.

    With Outlook no longer being bundled with Office (2007), is there any prospect that Xobni will support other e-mail clients for the non-corporate market, e.g. Windows Live Mail or Thunderbird? Because of my corporate background, I still use and love Outlook 2003, but as a freelance writer there’s no “upgrade path” for me when I eventually upgrade to Office 2007.

    Just downloaded at work and am loving it. Props to the creators; It’s the first free thing I’ve tried in months that I’d consider paying for to upgrade. Echo earlier comments, though, in that I wish there was a platform for Windows Live (how I actually USE social networking anyway since it only gets in the way at work (usually)).
