I was playing around with Google’s books search the other day, and I couldn’t help but search for Xobni. It happens that Xobni appears in dozens of books. Some we knew about, and other we never expected. We thought it’d be fun to share a few:
Linkedin For Dummies by Joel Elad
Xobni is a great tool for heavy email users, and even becomes more powerful if you use Xobni’s LinkedIn integration. LinkedIn For Dummies is a how-to book on how to get the most out of LinkedIn. Xobni is definitely a great way to get the most out of LinkedIn. Joel includes download instructions, features, and a lot more about Xobni in his book.
Upstarts!: How GenY Entrepreneuers are Rocking the World of Business by Donna Fenn.
In her book Donna talks about the features of Xobni’s Outlook product, but also tells the business story of how Xobni was founded, funded, and how it flourished.
Human Computer Interaction: New trends by Julie A. Jacko.
There are several academic books that reference Xobni and the new paradigms we introduced to email. It is quite an honor to be mentioned in academic work.
And finally, Xobni is featured in the New York Times bestseller The 4-Hour Workweek: Expanded and Updated by Tim Ferris. Here is a quote from the book:
“It [Xobni] offers many features, but the most relevant to this chapter is its ability to indentify “hotspots,” or periods of time when you receive the bulk of e-mail from your most important contacts. These “hotspots” are batching times that will enable you to keep critical contacts (clients, bosses, etc.) smiling even while you reduce checking e-mail to 1-3 times per day.”
We talk about many of Xobni’s features here on our blog, but we don’t often talk about the analytics engine that sits beneath the software. Tim has latched on to one way he suggests that his readers can use Xobni’s analytics features to work smarter, not harder.
We thought being in this many books was pretty cool, so we wanted to share. We’re honored.
