Zenbe: The next Gmail killer?

Zenbe is a late starter in the webmail arena, especially after the market has long been dominated by Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. However, this newcomer into the industry does has some ‘killer apps‘ that could probably snatch some market shares from the leaders.

On a first glance, I am pretty impressed by its features and simple layout. In actual fact, Zenbe is more than a Webmail. It seems more like a personal organizer to me. Along with your email, you get a calendar, a to do list, a facebook status update column and a Zenpages where you can create and share information.

To start with, you are prompted to import your Gmail and Yahoo account into Zenbe and access all your mails from Zenbe. You can also import your calendar so there is no need for you to enter the events from scratch.

Some impressive features found in Zenbe include the ability to add tags to your emails, star message with different colors and a right sidebar where you can view your address book, calendar and to do list alongside your emails. The feature that I liked most is the Files tab that keeps all your attachments in one place. It allows you to browse your attachments independently, without having to open the email it came with, a great time-saver.

Zenbe is currently in private beta, but you can request an invitation from the Zenbe’s website.
