Baydin brought its Boomerang email client to Android last year with a focus initially on Google accounts, though support for Microsoft Exchange was introduced just a few months back. In a nutshell, Boomerang lets you ‘snooze’ or schedule emails for later, while also delivering a neat response-tracking feature.

So, an email with key information could be pushed to the top of your inbox when you arrive at an important business meeting, for example. This echoes a similar move made by task-management service Todoist earlier this year, when it rolled out location-based reminders.

The latest Boomerang build also brings in new widgets which display unread counts and let you peruse your emails from your homescreen. For international users, Boomerang also now supports German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Korean.
