UI suggestion - integrate with Gmail

Thank you very much for your work on Paperpile! It has been great so far.

For the browser extension, it is still difficult for me to manage papers. In particular, I would like to be able to distinguish between read/unread papers, to “archive” papers to make them disappear, and to add notes to papers - and maybe even forward them to colleagues, and have searchable discussion threads about them.

Basically, what I realized is that I want the Gmail interface. I’m not sure if it’s possible, but if there were a way to integrate Paperpile with Gmail, I think it would be AWESOME. We could mark read/unread papers, “archive” the papers, and have discussion threads perfectly integrated with the papers themselves. You could also tag papers using the Gmail tags feature.

Anyway, just a thought. If it is difficult to integrate it with Gmail, it would still be awesome to have some of these features (particularly, read/unread and archive). There has been some talk about how to implement a “read/unread” system, and I think Gmail does it perfectly. Thanks!
