Xobni for Gmail, Android & iPhone coming soon! – Testers wanted.

Xobni for GMail BETA, Android ALPHA & iPhone ALPHA

by Michael Albers

Not a day goes by at Xobni, without hearing “When will Xobni work on Gmail, Android or iPhone?”.  This is truly the #1 request from Xobni users, and we’ve been listening.

Last week, we deployed a new service called Xobni Pro. This service includes the robust “Xobni Cloud” architecture, which enables us to develop new products faster. More importantly, it connects Xobni’s relationship management service across multiple platforms and devices.

Previously, Xobni users could only unite their Xobni Contacts and rich profiles across Outlook and BlackBerry. Now, with the Xobni Cloud, we can extend this further. The Xobni Cloud is the foundation that will enable us to support new products and platforms going forward.

Today we’re announcing that Xobni is coming to Gmail, Android and iPhone.

Xobni for Gmail BETA – The Xobni sidebar comes to Gmail! Sign up for the Gmail BETA.

  • Put a face and a name to every email
  • Lightning-fast contact search
  • See relationship history and mutual contacts
  • Enriched contact info from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

Xobni for Android & iPhone ALPHA – The Xobni app on your Android and iPhone providing quick access to your Xobni contacts and information.  Sign up for the Android ALPHA or sign up for the iPhone ALPHA.

  • Bring your Xobni automatic address book to your Smartphone
  • Access Xobni Contacts from Gmail, Outlook, BlackBerry
  • See recent emails and mutual contacts
  • Lightning-fast contact search

Testers Wanted

Over the past few months, we have been in Private Alpha mode with Xobni for Gmail with some of the most amazing Alpha testers in the world! This loyal team of testers has been invaluable: diligently identifying bugs, suggesting new features, and providing lots of encouragement along the way during our ALPHA. Thanks so much to each of you for your emails and posts in the forums—your participation makes a difference!

So, if you’re one of those really early adopters, and like to get an early peek at these products, or if you’re one of the thousands that has written us asking for Xobni in Gmail, iPhone and Android—we’d love to have you on our Alpha (or Beta) tester team. Sign up on the respective pages for Gmail BETAAndroid ALPHA and iPhone ALPHA products.  We’ll be letting users in on a first come, first served basis. All  feedback, thoughts and ideas are welcomed.

You might be wondering: will there be a Free and Pro version of these products? The answer is: Yes! We aren’t sharing all those details yet, but we will in time.

We hope you’re as excited as we are, and we are looking forward to developing these products with you by our side.

    Just curious. If we already pay for the Xobni Plus version on Outloook, will this qualify us for the upgrade on Xobni Gmail? I have gotten seriously spoiled by Xobni Plus searches.

    My Gmail and Outlook accounts are now linked in the Gmail cloud so both see the same information and I can always search Outlook, but I am so spoiled by Gmail that I do not use Outlook for email anymore except for Xobni searches. Still use the Outlook calendar and contacts list, but email, no thanks. This is a welcome development!

    I can’t wait to try out the Android app! Perfect timing as well as I just changed phones today from a Droid X to Thunderbolt.

    Question: Is there a Xobni product that allows searching across both Gmail and Outlook?

  11. 11 David April 30, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    iPhone and gmail are great, but I truly hope you will soon include Outlook and/or Address Book for Mac.

    I’m an existing Xobni for Gmail tester and absolutely LOVE the product. The only thing missing from my life now to bring me to Nirvana is an Iphone app.

    please tell us when we can get this!
