Pros: I had ton's of messaging software's and portals going at the same time, it is nice to have them all in the same place now.

Cons: It seems like its basically a glorified browser, which is fine, but the interface isn't anything fancy.

Overall: It has saved me time in messaging and has cleaned up my desktop a ton. It is very efficient.

Pros: easy to install and setup multiple email accounts. uses very little resources and is quick to start after starting up your machine. very attractive pricing makes this a good and simple platform without breaking the bank.

Cons: I have had to reinstall a couple times due to some conflicts with windows 10. conflicts include getting a white screen when opening my inbox on a few of my accounts, removing and signing back into the account does work either (issue with cached data maybe).

Pros: I enjoyed using Shift to manage my Gmail and Google accounts (it also handles Calendar, Drive and so on). It has a great interface, new and usable and it is very useful to have all the Google Apps in a single software

Cons: Unfortunately I had to switch to another solution, as I was asked to pay to keep using the services in both my accounts

Pros: Great to access gmail and google docs/sheets with no temptation to browse in separate tabs. The free version was a great experience.

Cons: The Advanced package's ability to access 3rd-party applications is great, but it's overpriced. It also makes the Pro package feel like a waste of money, as its added features do not feel proportionate to the Advanced package.

Pros: I have a lot of Google accounts, so this product made me switching my accounts easier.
I like what it can change an icon for each account. Having several accounts made me confuse, so this feature helped me.

Cons: Sometimes my accounts disappear from my settings suddenly.
They have a lot of apps. If they integrate a bunch of apps, it will be as a browser.

Pros: Nice to have all most of my email addresses in one location rather than having to have multiple tabs open.

Cons: Logs me out of my accounts from time to time. Logging into outlook 365 is cumbersome at best. Wish there was a mobile app for iOS.

Overall: Saves me time from having to log into various email addresses on multiple tabs.

Pros: I love the idea of it. Having all the tools you use in one window -- especially when those tools aren't Office -- would be fab.

Cons: As I said, I love the idea of it, but it doesn't quite deliver. It's clunky and inconsistent. Some features work sometimes, others not so much. Gmail doesn't fully fit within the available window and web pages open in Chrome in the background despite configuring it others.

Overall: A centralized place for the most important apps.

Pros: Shift can switch not only mail but also calendar. In many other software, only mail is switched. I like this feature very much.

Cons: It does not work very well outside of Google's services. For other services login sessions disappear quickly, and too many tabs when trying to handle everything. The overall operation of the application is not very good either. It has setting items to turn off auto-launch but it does not work well. And it is very slow.

Overall great experience. With 9 inboxes and a Trello to manage, Shift has transformed my worklife!

Pros: I like that it puts all of my most-used apps (Google apps, Evernote, MailChimp, slack) into one dashboard. That makes it simple to switch apps as I work. I also LOVE being able to mute my notifications! This allows me to have my notifications on, but temporarily turn them off when I need to focus.

Cons: There is sometimes a lag between when I get an email notification and when it appears in my inbox. This is frustrating if it is an email I need to read. I sometimes revert back to Gmail when this happens.

Overall: Improved, simplified, work-flow. Can move from gmail, to MailChimp, to slack, and back from one screen.

Pros: It enables me to use all my google emails and office 365 emails in one dashboard with their web app interface. It integrates with Grammarly and other important Google extensions to help you replace the need for your browser in most cases. It also integrates with a ton of apps like Dropbox, Hubspot, Asana, and more so you access those directly from Shift.

Cons: The browser/link functionality needs some improvement and few glitches here and there that will be fixed as more users report them. Overall, solid platform that makes managing multiple google emails a breeze.

I am happy to see my communication application in one place.

Pros: About this software, my favorite thing is that the communication tools I always use can be used in one place. The point that Grammery can be used is also good.

Cons: As you install slack, twitter etc, loading will be delayed and no notice will come. Is it saving memory and operating it? Honestly, it seems that the operation will be faster as soon as displaying the application installed on shift with multiple tabs in the browser.

Shift definitely increases productivity, without a steep learning curve.

Pros: I was a bit skeptical at first but became comfortable with Shift quickly. It is very easy to switch between services (mail, calendar, drive, etc) on multiple Google accounts. The ability to also access services like Twitter/Tweetdeck, Feedly and Evernote from within the app is very convenient.

Cons: There are a limited number of extensions, but new ones are added frequently (I guess that's a con and a pro!) I look forward to seeing more in the future. Support for Exchange would also be a welcome addition.

Excellent overall except when using only one gmail account for many, multiple, repetitive things...

Cons: ... when doing many activities in parallel, extra clicks start to cost time & overall Shift System slows down some dealing w/ multiple activities at the same time; which is what you would expect. Luckily, since Shift changes nothing "Google", you can then go back directly to the pure Google World for these instances....

Overall: see Pros...

Pros: I love that it's an app that just does my gmail accounts. I hated having 6 browser tabs open to do the same thing - and I didn't like other apps that didn't let me use google's native (and perfect) interface. If you have lots of gmail accounts, this is the best way to go! Plus, no monthly fees.

Cons: My only complaint is that there is some strange thing when I use Okta as a sign in method to get to one of my gmail accounts. It rarely works.

Pros: It's super fast to find content from multiple accounts via the unified search interface. The integration of Google Drive and Calendar makes switching between different services a breeze.

Cons: It would be nice if the additional "integrations" such as Jira would be deeper integrated - e.g. instead of being just an embedded website, it would be great to have a nice interface which utilizes the services api to perform calls.

The simplest solution for combining multiple inboxes and apps into one interface.

Pros: The biggest advantage to Shift over multi-inbox solutions is that there's no modification to the native Gmail interface, and there's no clunky panes or buttons that most Chrome extensions tend to tack on. There's a minimal learning curve so once you load your email info you can start using Shift right away. App integrations work well, and notifications from them seem reliable in my use. Shift is way more convenient and responsive than having multiple Chrome tabs and multiple desktop apps open.

Cons: Some non-Gmail-specific context menu plugins I use with Google Chrome obviously aren't available inside Shift, and the included context menu is fairly basic. It's not that big of an issue though, because any links open quickly with Chrome. I do wish the Advanced version with app integrations was cheaper, but the integrations are quite handy.

A mail client which brings all of my google services into one place, across accounts. Excellent.

Pros: Having a single mail client which brings all my accounts together. I like that they are all separated, but I can quickly change between them and see unread count in the sidebar. Shortcuts to jump to my calendar and back to my inbox make it quick and easy.
Having it in a desktop client allows me to not need to worry about the browser and which account I'm signed into right now when pulling up my mail.
Ease of use, convenient and familiar (gmail interface), quickly fetched mail, and other features make this a goto client for me right now.
The extensibility now with extensions is a great feature.

Cons: Sometimes it seems like the memory usage by Shift can get a little out of hand. I tend to force quit the application and relaunch it. Sometimes an extension doesn't work correctly and it's not clear how to fix it (like the Zoom extension saying I need to log in again to authenticate, but then not having a method of doing so - at least not easily found).

Overall: All of my email in one place, including my calendar. It's a familiar interface since it just uses the gmail native interface. The aggregation of accounts / services to a desktop client makes it a win.

Pros: Having a tool that allows me to have all of my Gmail accounts in one place is great. Love the simplicity of its design and how easy it is to organize.

Cons: The only thing that I've found so far that I find cumbersome is opening files from Google Drive. It opens them in the default browser which sometimes allows the file you are working on to get lost with web browsing. It would be nice it it kept it in the Shift window like the calendar.

Pros: The ability to easily review all of my gmail and office365 accounts quickly is a huge time saver. No other software lets me easily see at a glance if I have unread emails or not for the 10 different accounts I maintain.

Cons: Sometimes the calendar 'tab' doesn't load due to the network connection not being available right away, and I miss calendar reminders because the tab didn't open, and I didn't know the tab didn't open. Sometimes clicking on links in the emails are very slow to open.

Overall: I'm able to access all of my accounts, personal and business, functional and social, all at once. I'm now able to get Hangouts as a separate App tab instead of a Google Services dropdown.

Pros: Shift has actually changed my life. Being able to easily have access to all of my GMail accounts without having to log in and out of them constantly has definitely made me more efficient. I adore that Shift is always improving and updating, adding pulgins and such that make it the easy choice for email.

Cons: Sometimes when opening certain drive items, it opens them up in the browser, prompting you to have to log into the proper account again. I can't figure out how to stop that but honestly, it's minimal compared to how annoying logging in and out used to be when I just used my browser for all my email accounts.

There are still a few specific features I really want from Shift, but customer service is great.

Pros: I really like the way it looks for me to be logged into multiple accounts and have access to mail and calendars for these accounts. I also really like that Boomerang is now usable within Shift. The customer service has been spectacular, and always very responsive.

Cons: I use Google Calendar for meeting reminders and want notifications from calendar, WITHOUT getting notifications from email. I want to be able to select only certain notification types instead of all notifications for any account. This is a big deal to me, and I've had to use another app for calendar reminders that I really don't like at all.

Overall: It's an easy way to manage my email and appointments.

Almost perfect

Pros: It is a great experience to use a dedicated app for Gmail and Google Calendar. My company supports employees to purchase Shift.

Cons: Shift refuses me to log in to the account sometimes if the account is using Centrify. The only way to fix the issue that Shift Support told me is resetting all settings. It's highly stressful because every time I have to set up all my 3 accounts. Currently, I just add the same account one more time.

Pros: Combining all my emails into one platform and ease of transition between emails, calendars, and drives! It's fantastic. Plus, now Grammarly and Boomerang are integrated!

Excellent software for managing multiple email accounts and applications.

Pros: Shift really keeps the number of windows/tabs and applications to a minimum. Before shift, I had 3 different browser windows open, each for a separate email account. Now I just have one and can free up the clutter of my desktop. Recently with Shift Pro Advanced, I can now link my other task management applications like slack and asana so I have all details in one place. I've cut my workflow time in half just because I don't need to keep switching windows.

Cons: The only con I can think of with this product is the price of the Advanced version. The jump from pro to advanced is quite large for the lack of extra features you get.

Great tool to manage multiple gmail accounts w/out using separate browsers or incognito tabs.

Pros: Integration w/ calendar and drive and the new 'apps' option. The ability to support gmail shortcuts is a huge plus.

Cons: The update / upgrade process needs some work. I've had to remove the personal data and download the latest version as the helper / update process doesn't work as expected.

I don't use it is because I drag a lot of attachments from my email and this doesn't allow that

Pros: I like that you can toggle in between email addresses easily and it is organized with simplicity. I like that you can get notifications of messages as well.

Cons: I don't like that I am unable to drag attachments from my email into another program because that is what I do on a daily basis.

Shift makes it easy to view multiple email addresses at once!

Pros: The ability to search all inboxes, and to easily switch between different emails. If I don't remember if an email went directly to myself, or to the HR email, I can search at the top and it will come up right away!

Cons: The limitations on the free trial. A trial usually lets you use the full features for a certain amount of time. The design can be a bit confusing until you get used to what buttons to click and where they are.

Shift is great. Great product that does what it says well.

Pros: I enjoy having a centrally located place for my individual email accounts on my desktop. I also like the ability to add extensions and apps. Customer support is very willing to help too!

Cons: I get multiple notifications for the same calendar event (bug?) and it's not clear how to solve this issue. I also receive no notifications for other apps I use.

Overall: It streamlines the process of email management.

Fantastic software but still too many bugs

Pros: Like many people I use quite a few different email accounts, the ability to access them all through one task bar icon (Shift) without having to go in and out of different web pages is a huge time-saving operation and something I really wanted to work well but unfortunately this isn't always the case. The good news is that it looks like the developers are adding and upgrading features all the time and at quite a fast pace so hopefully the software will improve

Cons: Shift can be very slow at times defeating the object of saving you time switching between different emails, it also has a habit of crashing quite regularly to the point that I have currently uninstalled and reverted to accessing my emails separately again. But I will go back and try Shift again, the benefits of when it was working are too good to miss

Overall: When it works the software saves so much time enabling you to access various email addresses all from one page. Really hoping the developers fix the bugs and speed up the programme
