Since G+ is very bad at searching, I created this summary of the tools; read the full G+ post (Google Translate is quite OK), including comments on why.

Edit: 2160402 – I’m posting regular updates based on the comments for that G+ post. I’ve changed or added German iTunes store links to US-English ones.

Official Gmail Blog: Introducing Gmail Mic Drop – April 1st retracted because of too much of a success

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/01
