Turn Your Email Subject into a Powerful Command Line
InboxFever is a new service that turns your ordinary email subject line into a powerful command line by tapping it into many services. It works on the same principle as Google Talk Guru, but with much more usefulness. It gives you the ability to get directions, stock quotes, convert documents, manage social media accounts and more, all from the convenience of your inbox.
Test it by requesting for directions to a particular place by putting from and to location in your subject line and sending it to email@example.com. Within seconds you will get a map in your inbox showing you the route. An another example, send any document attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org and watch it return to you in seconds as a PDF.
You can control all your web applications simply by sending an email. There are no user interfaces or logins. Optionally though, you can sign-up for an account on InboxFever to better statistics and control. And it works with all email services.
