Inbox requests during today's ‘Happy Hour’ will net you a guaranteed invite by 5PM PST
Late last month Google introduced Inbox, its dramatic re-envisioning of how Email should work. The only catch to its introduction was that the experience was invite only, though Google said it would do its best to send out invites to those who asked for requests.
Since then, Google has sent out multiple rounds of invites and has allowed existing Inbox users to spread the love as well. For those that still haven’t tried it out though, today is your chance! Google is conducting a “happy hour” today, during the hours of 3PM PT and 4PM PT. During this time, any users that email firstname.lastname@example.org for a request will get their invites no later than 5PM PT tonight! Keep in mind that only personal Gmail accounts can actually utilize Inbox at this time, so work emails running through Google Apps won’t be able to sign up.

For those that have already tried it, what do you think of Inbox? How do you feel it compares to a more ‘traditional’ experience like you’d find through the regular Gmail app?
