Ever noticed the advertisements sidebar in your Gmail inbox? Now you can turn it into a platform to add interactive apps that can lead to a better email experience… and possibly to a better business outreach… using ‘Raplets’ (I know the terms kinda new and strange but we’ll get to it soon)!
“Rapportive shows you everything about your contacts right inside your inbox.” (Taken from the Rapportive website)
Rapportive, is a free add-on for Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Mailplane. It adds a sidebar to your Gmail inbox which displays your social contacts. Just open up an email and the sender’s details including his name, image, email address, updates from Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (Just to name a few!) are displayed in the Rapportive sidebar. Awesome way to establish a ‘rapport’… hence the name, Rapportive!
