If you regularly check emails, It’ll be a nice idea to get all reminders and emails in one place. Inbox by Gmail just does that.
It is pretty much easy to create a reminder in Inbox. Type in the task and set a schedule. Done!
You’ll now get your reminders same as you receive an email. You can snooze, pin or mark a reminder as done in the same way you do for an email.
As of June 2015, Inbox by Gmail is available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Android. This works fine for me, since i use Chrome and Android only. Other users should probably wait to get the kick ass email-cum-reminder app which syncs across all the devices.
