Xobni or Lookeen? Why Xobni users made the switch

Xobni was an Outlook add in designed to improve contact management (Outlook’s own contact management features are a little clunky). This add-in also had features like email analytics, and fast search – which is where we come in. For all the usefulness that Xobni tried to instill in its product, when Yahoo bought it, the corporation very quickly shut it down. It spent only a year under Yahoo’s wing before the program was scrapped for ‘underperformance’. The project was shut down even after a previous announcement from Yahoo stating: “not to worry – we aren’t pulling the rug out from under you. If you’re using a Xobni product today, you can keep using it.”


Looking for the perfect Xobni alternative? Lookeen is the search tool for you.

Many users were disappointed by this outcome, and had come to rely on Xobni Pro’s superior search capabilities. The infinity version released to sate user demand was also only available for a short time, and wasn’t compatible with any Outlook version past 2010. If you were a user of Xobni, not to worry, there are plenty of Xobni alternatives that will greatly improve your search experience on Outlook.
