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 love how easy it is to switch between my various email accounts, while allowing me to customize each one. Perfect.

Cons: The only thing I've had an issue with is occasional crashing. Not a deal-breaker, though.

Overall: I love the app.

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
