Google’s on a mission to reinvent email. Its weapon: Inbox, a standalone app that launched last week.

Inbox aims to make email more useful with several new tools.

Bundles sort your messages for you, letting you find important messages faster. Plus you can add your own reminders that work with Google Now.
