Xoopit: The greatest gmail plug-in ever!

I think I may have found the most useful plug-in ever.  It’s called Xoopit and it’s awesome.

Basically what it does is find all your media sent you via gmail and displays it at the top.  For me, a graphic designer, this is a major time saver.  I need to find that picture of Lisa Loeb that her manager sent me to put on the website?  Well look at that!  There’s a thumbnail right there with the picture I need.  When I click on it, it goes directly to the media!  Fabulous.  I can’t tell you how obsessed I am with it.

So how it works:  You go to xoopit.com and sign in using your gmail account.  Then xoopit begins the arduous task of cycling though all your emails and finding media.  This process takes a while so give it an overnight cycle before it kicks in.

Then you install a firefox plug in that will actually work with gmail to display your media above your email like this:

After all your media has been catalogued you can see it in gmail or you can go to xoopit.com/feed and they show you all your media in 1 handy-dandy site.  You can even separate everything by media type.

Basically, this is the coolest thing I have ever seen and I demand that you try it out immediately!
