Today marks a major milestone for Xobni—and for our customers. You may already have been following the progress of our Xobni Gadget platform, available to developers to seamlessly integrate web-based services into the Xobni for Outlook experience. Having seen incredibly useful and time-saving gadgets created and beta-tested over the past few months, we’re now thrilled to announce the Xobni Gadget Store. Take advantage of direct access to a new world of productive services and applications from a wide range of industry-leading partners (press release).
Web-based document sharing, lead tracking, issue monitoring and editing, note-taking—your inbox is about to get a lot more powerful. Imagine being able to integrate great services like these right into your Xobni experience (without leaving Outlook):
- Productivity Gadgets: Dropbox, Evernote, GoldMail, Google Translate, JIRA, WebEx
- Collaboration Gadgets: Huddle, Microsoft SharePoint, Salesforce Chatter, Yammer
- Content Gadgets: Facebook, Flickr, Hoover’s, Klout, LinkedIn, Twitter, XING, YouTube, Yelp
- CRM Gadgets: Salesforce.com
Now you can choose any of the Xobni Gadgets you want—or the whole batch if you like—for prices ranging from free to only $9.99/year (with 30 day free trial).
We’ve made it easy for you to add Gadgets to Xobni. Just click on over to the Xobni Gadget Store and take your pick of the gadgets available. Then make sure you’re on the latest and greatest version of Xobni for Outlook. That’s version 2.0.1 for Xobni Pro subscribers and free users (most of you), and an updated 1.9.6 for existing Xobni Plus users (release notes).
For enterprises, the Xobni Gadget Platform now makes it easy to create private gadgets based on your existing internal services to help employees become more productive and effective. Xobni Business Solutions customers can deploy their own customized gadgets via the Xobni Enterprise Admin Portal. You can find out more about these programs here.
Today, Xobni Gadgets are available for Xobni for Outlook. Over the coming months, we’ll be looking at ways to widen the platform to Xobni for Gmail and Xobni mobile as well.
Customers we’ve talked to are pumped up about the new era of Xobni Gadgets, and we hope you are, too. It’s just one more way we can make your inbox the best it can possibly be.
