Has anybody managed to get a Google Inbox invite? And if so, what are your thoughts on the new email interface? Is it going to become another must-have app? I'm still waiting for an invite myself :(

If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can read Kris's overview of it right here:

Hey all; When I saw the original email from Google, I think on Wed or Thurs, I immediately sent back a request. I received my invite on Fri and have been using it ever since. It's interesting, I'm still using Gmail as my main driver, but I've been trying to use Inbox a bit more. It bundles like emails under topics, so ad's and sales are bundled under Promos. You get the idea. I like the fact you can "snooze" an email and tell it to come back say when your at home, or at a particular time. I set a reminder for an email to show when I'm home and that worked pretty good. The only single issue so far is to trash an email, you have to do a dropdown, then trash. It should be on the main screen.
Anyway, hope you get your invite soon, the app had no way of sending additional invites or I would.

It's ridiculous that you have to have an invite with a google app, don't get it!

Stupid idea. Just a gimick.

Well, that's what I sometimes feel waiting for an invitation to test new things out (thinking) it feels like hell ! Anyway but I do understand that it's still under testing phase means they can't give it to everyone this early. I am also waiting for an invite, (Hope @Scott didn't see this (devil) ) when you get one do share one with me at the first palce. :D
