Emailing yourself? Google Inbox suggests saving reminders instead

Google's Inbox app can become a powerful productivity tool if you get the hang of its numerous features. One of its latest offerings, for instance, makes sure you know you can save reminders within the app. Next time you send an email to yourself for whatever reason -- say, so you can access a shopping list on several devices -- the app will ask if you want to create a reminder instead. If you tap the pop-up prompt (see image above) and save, that reminder will contain everything you typed in the email. Not a bad little feature, though it would be a lot more useful if it can also auto-upload attached files or images to Drive or to Google's new Photos app.
