Xobni, maker of popular contact management tools for Outlook and BlackBerry, has today announced a new sub-brand along with two new products ready for public beta. Smartr Inbox for Gmail and Smartr Contacts for Android--both previously branded as Xobni products during their private beta stage--now bring Xobni's contact management powers to Google's e-mail platform.
Smartr Inbox for Gmail is a browser extension that adds a useful sidebar to your Gmail interface. With it, you can easily pull up any contact you've ever communicated with, along with details of your e-mail relationship, history, and even common contacts between the two of you. You can also allow your Smartr account to connect to your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profiles, which will give you significantly richer contact profiles.
Meanwhile, Smartr for Android is a free app that syncs with your Gmail account and brings much of the same contact management functionality to your mobile device. Additionally, it pulls in your phone contacts and all of your SMS and voice call history to populate your contacts' profiles.
And for existing users of Xobni who would like to expand to Gmail and/or Android, there's still Xobni Pro. Introduced earlier this year, the paid premium service can sync all contacts across all Xobni and Smartr products.Smartr Inbox for Gmail and Smartr Contacts for Android are both available for free download at Xobni.com.
