Google Inbox Survey: Email Users Curious About New App

Google just introduced a new app called Inbox, which is intended to help users sort out their email accounts. The app works by automatically sorting certain emails into categories and even highlighting important points in some emails. Though there are so many different ways people can communicate now, email still seems to be a common method, and one that can sometimes get a bit overwhelming. So how many people are interested in using Google Inbox?
