Five More Gmail Extensions to Increase Productivity


Recently, I shared five extensions for Gmail that are designed to help boost productivity. There were too many to pack into one post, so here are five additional extensions to use with Gmail.

  • Right Inbox for Gmail- Schedule emails to be sent later and add reminders to follow up on emails. You can also schedule recurring emails and add private notes to emails. 
  • Mailtrack- Let's you know if the emails you have sent have been read or not. See how long ago they were read and how many times they were opened.
  • Snooze Email- Not ready to deal with a particular message? Set a custom time for it to reappear in your email.
  • Email Game- Checking email can be very boring and time consuming. This extension turns this mundane task into a fun game.
  • Newsletter Creator- Create visually appealing newsletters from inside of Gmail using templates. Drag and drop content until your newsletter is just the way you want it.

Mercury Reader Chrome Extension


Mercury Reader is a Chrome extension that makes websites and articles easier for students to read. This extension strips away ads which can be distraction and it pulls the information from an article into one simple and easy to read document. Images will still appear in the new version and hyperlinks will still work just as they did in the original article. Mercury Reader allows the user to change the size of the text, adjust the font, and select either a light or dark theme. There is also an option to send the text to a Kindle.

Applications for Education 
This app is very useful for students (or anyone) who is easily distracted, need to enlarge text, or who might have a preference for light or dark backgrounds.
