Get to Inbox Zero by Playing Games with Your E-Mail

I love that I can download lots of apps for my iPhone. Even my husband has apps on my phone. My favorite gaming app is Angry Birds. Mmmm…or Words With Friends. Especially when I’m winning!

When I’m actually trying to be productive, I’d love to be winning at getting to inbox zero. And, now that there’s an app that makes it a game, I could get closer to it. With The E-Mail Game, checking e-mail might actually be fun. The quicker I do something with a message, the more points I’d get. It has GTD feel (do it now, do it later, or delete) but the real key is beating the clock.

Plus, it works with Gmail and it’s free (there is a fee for the Exchange version). Points = Squat …but who cares?? I’d kick my inbox in the arse! …or have fun trying…

Would you give it a go?
