Gmail apps are useful for:
- CRM (customer relationship management)
We recently covered the latest feature updates that Google rolled out for Gmail. These new features improve everything from security to organization to productivity, and therefore, make many Gmail apps obsolete. But you don’t have to use the latest Gmail Inbox version. If you prefer, you can still use the “old” Gmail and continue using Gmail apps, which already have millions of combined users and great ratings.
For example, our Gmail app, WiseStamp, is an easy-to-use email signature tool that helps you promote your business with every email you send. You can choose from a dozen professionally designed templates and find inspiration with these stunning email signature examples.
But what other Gmail apps should you be using? No need to sift through the Chrome Extension Store; we’ve done the research for you!
Whether you’re looking to enhance your organization, boost your productivity, improve business relationships or more, here are the top 5 Gmail apps (in addition to WiseStamp) to download now!
