Boomerang is a Firefox/Google Chrome plugin which adds the functionality of scheduling emails in Gmail. If you are using Gmail and want to schedule emails for later, Boomerang plugin is the solution for you.
Boomerang for Gmail can be downloaded for Firefox and Chrome. Boomerang is not only used for scheduling emails for sending later but it can also be used for follow up reminders. The biggest feature in my opinion is the automatic suggestion feature of Boomerang. Boomerang offers to return the message at exactly the right time with just one click! For example, if you get an email that describes a meeting at 4pm on Thursday Boomerang will automatically suggest returning the message 2 hours before – so you have time to prepare for the meeting and have the location and details handy when you arrive.
Some other features of Boomerang include:
After installation of the plugin, it will ask Gmail for permission to use. Allow it and you’ll get a new tab in Gmail with Boomerang functionality. You may also be interested in scheduling status updates in Facebook and Twitter.
