Top Mailbird Apps to Help You Do More in Less Time
How many open browser tabs do you end up with every day by the time you are finished with your work? The answer depends on the number of apps or third-party tools you are using.
Switching between tabs can be distracting and overwhelming — you have to dig through a lot of pages to locate the right one.
What if you could access most of your apps — all of your email accounts, calendars, to-do lists, tasks, and more — from one convenient interface, without even switching tabs?
With Mailbird, it becomes as easy as pie.
What Is Mailbird?
Mailbird is an email client that helps you connect all your accounts — something most email clients do, right? However, simple email management is not the only productivity boost this service helps you achieve. With Mailbird, you can get all your work done under one roof — an online unified dashboard.
In Mailbird, you can find dozens of the apps you use daily and access them right from the email client app while simultaneously managing your emails.
Mailbird’s Integrated Apps
With the ability to not only check your email but also access and use all your apps from a unified dashboard, you can spend less time on project management, setting up online calls or conversations, managing files, and much more.
Mailbird will transform your email client experience and bring it to a new level. You can access your Evernote, Asana, Slack, and many other accounts with just a click, right from Mailbird’s sidebar, while simultaneously managing your emails or calendars.
So, let’s go through the integrations!
Project Management Apps
Asana is one of the top project management tools used by both teams and individuals across the world. You can easily create projects, grant access to team members, assign tasks, set up deadlines, and more.
By connecting this app in Mailbird, you can check your emails while creating and reviewing to-do lists in Asana at the same time. Syncing your Asana profile in Mailbird is easy — it takes just a few clicks to sign in and have quick access to your to-do lists.
Slack helps reduce never-ending email threads by offering instant communication channels and tools for teams. This tool helps keep everyone on the same page during project planning and execution. It also supports in-built apps that interact with users through conversations.
If you want to use your emails alongside Slack messages from one place, enabling Slack’s integration with Mailbird is like hitting the bullseye. Once connected, you can quickly access Slack from Mailbird’s sidebar.
Trello is a popular tool for project management that helps organize any possible project using cards, boards, and lists. It offers various features, such as task assignments and timelines, to help complete projects on time and coordinate teamwork. If you are a fan of Kanban boards, Trello is most likely your top choice.
In Mailbird, you can access Trello with just one click through the left sidebar. Once you receive an important email on Mailbird and need to assign a new task to an employee, doing it in Trello won’t take you more than a few seconds.
Todoist is one of the top project management apps for distributed teams working remotely. Currently, over one million individuals and teams use Todoist to create to-do lists, assign tasks, and track team progress.
This tool is simplistic and clutter-free with a lot of in-built features that help you create and manage your to-do lists faster. Thanks to natural language processing (NLP), this tool lets you create your tasks in no time. Automatic sorting options show the upcoming tasks you have to focus on today, this week, or this month.
Similar to other apps, instead of opening a new tab to access Todoist, you can open it in Mailbird with just a click.
The Legend app is another project management tool that helps you organize and deliver projects. There are a few ways in which this tool stands out against similar apps — it offers a lot of integrations with other tools, so you can manage them from one dashboard, and it’s highly customizable to your style of work.
If you are using Legend for project management and often switch between the tool and your email accounts, you should definitely connect your Legend account in Mailbird.
Remote Communication Apps
Whereby is a free app for web conferencing that users love because of its ease of use to organize and conduct meetings. Normally, to schedule an online meeting, you’d have to log into Whereby and create an event in your browser.
With Mailbird, you don’t have to leave your email dashboard to create and invite participants. Just click the Whereby logo in the left sidebar to create your meeting room, generate a shareable link, and send it to your client by email or add it to an event in your calendar.

By integrating Unroll.me with Mailbird, you can quickly manage spam in all your connected email accounts. Alongside Unroll.me, you can also use Mailbird’s in-built Unsubscribe button that saves time and effort on locating the unsubscribe link.
How many times have you set a task to follow up with a client, then forgot all about it? With FollowUp, you can easily set up automatic follow-ups and cancel when a user replies.

File Management Apps
Dropbox is one of the most popular apps for file management. It’s used for both individuals and businesses.

There is also a nice function of selecting a Dropbox file right from your email compose windows. It saves lots of time on locating files and managing email communication.

More Productivity Apps to Improve Your Everyday Experience
Currently, the Mailbird email client provides one of the most comprehensive lists of integrations with third-party tools.
We keep working on extending the list of supported apps and already have an eye on a few we think users would benefit from. Here are some tools we haven’t integrated with yet but still recommend using to everyone. There are high chances these tools will end up on the Mailbird integrations list soon.
ClickUp is a project management app that helps you substitute dozens of different online tools. As a result, you can work more efficiently in one place and at a lower cost by avoiding paying for multiple SaaS subscriptions.
ClickUp lets you manage projects and tasks, get your team connected through a real-time chat, set up milestones and goals, and customize real-view tables for tracking.
ClickUp claims it can replace Jira, Slack, and other project management tools similar to Monday or Asana. Why should you pay more for dozens of tools if you can have everything in one place for just $5 per team member?
If you market your services through cold emails, Hunter.io is a great tool to find the email addresses of decision makers in the companies you want to target. Similar to ZeroBounce (described above), Hunter.io helps you accelerate outreach and land more sales.

Their templates are responsive, ensuring that your newsletter will look great on any device. Stripo helps you create custom email banners and templates, save them, and use them for your other campaigns.
Most email clients integrate with third-party apps. However, their integrations are often limited. They usually help gather all your email accounts in one place, but they don’t focus on letting you manage all your work from one unified dashboard.
With Mailbird, you can connect all your email accounts and manage your work from one virtual workstation by connecting with dozens of third-party tools — many more than you would find in other email clients.
Thanks to this solution, you can do more work in less time and avoid multiple distractions.
Try Mailbird for free and access your favorite apps — email accounts, calendars, to-do lists, tasks, and more — from one convenient interface.
