Fmail: Access Gmail from Your Facebook Account

Zoho Launches Zoho DB, Beats Others To The Game

Great news for Gmail and Facebook lovers! Fmail, a new Facebook app developed by MIT developers Courtland Allen & Aarson Rosado, lets you access Gmail from right within your Facebook account.

Built on Gmail lite, Fmail allows users to access almost all the features of Gmail and displays messages in an iFrame. Overall, it has nice look-and-feel although it misses out on Gmail’s chat functionality and Ajax interface. Its features include easy interaction with Facebook, multiple tabs for mailbox actions for example Inbox spam folder etc. There is a separate compose button for sending email messages.

I did notice a couple of small bugs while accessing Fmail. There was a session timed out error when I clicked on discard button and a small cookie issue as my browser disables cookies by default. Barring these odd hiccups, Fmail looks a nice facebook application at the outset. Courtland and Aarson are still working on bug-fixes in an effort to ensure smooth & interactive user experience.

The co-founders have started a Facebook group dedicated to Fmail and the group is fast shaping up as a interactive discussion platform with users giving their reviews and application feedback. You can visit the group by clicking here.

So, who’s up for porting the rest of the Internet onto Facebook? :)
