Essential, lots of room to grow!
As a heavy gsuite user, this app is critical to my day to day work. In fact, really don’t know how I lived without it, and it gets better and better with every release.
However, as other reviewers point out, there are still many opportunities for improvement. Based off their work so far I’m really impressed by the Kiwi team and I’m really excited to see what the future holds for the app. For example, I’d love if the gsuite apps would only open one window per app - if I want to jump to my calendar and can’t find quickly, I’ll click the gcal button/icon in the kiwi menu - but it always opens a new window. Over the course of the day I end up with dozens of Kiwi windows open showing the same thing when what I really want is one window for each of the main apps (calendar, drive, contacts, or a particular document) and for kiwi to find the window that’s already open and bring it to the front. I’ve also noticed that when downloading/saving attachments from emails, I can’t create new folders in the expanded save panel and end up having to jump over to finder, add the folder there, then going back to Kiwi to save the attachment into it. It’s a small bother, but adds up over time.
Overall this is an essential app that I couldn’t live without, and I’m looking forward to seeing it continue to improve!
Awesome, but Desperately Overdue for a few Fixes
Overall, Kiwi is a great email client. I've been using the app for about three years, since it was in Beta. The ability to organize multiple emails, easily, and use Google drive within the app for connected accounts is fantstic.
However, as a long-time user, I'm a bit frustrated at how often the app crashes. For me, a crash occurs about once every other day. I'm using Kiwi on a 2020 Macbook Air running MacOS Big Sure with 16gb ram, so it should not crash this often.
Occasionally needing to rebott the app is of less concern to me than the absence of one key feature — There is no way to merge all windows. Unlike in apps like Preview or Safari, if you open multiple windows, they will stay open in seperate windows, and cannot be merged as tabs within a single pane. As a result, you'll have 20 windows open before you know it.
Finally, a tip for those who frequently use the paste and match style shortcut, which is normally: Command Option Shift V. In Kiwi, however, the shortcut is Shift Command V.
An extremely efficient way of keeping track of several Gmail accounts. Notifications for new mail arrive instantly. One small nitpick is that the unread count takes a while to update (back to an absence of the count) if I have read (and deleted) a newly incoming email elsewhere (in the browser, where I keep an Inbox by Gmail tab open, or on my phone). Also, somehow Google Keep is absent from the left navbar of my copy of Kiwi, although I have seen it on some screenshots out in the wild (my window has an icon for Google Slides, which I don’t use; and I haven’t found a way to remove Slides but add Keep in the settings—so this would be my feature request). But other than these two little things, being able to forego a ton of browser tabs is a blessing. One note after reading some of the other comments: if you ever implement calendar notifications, please make an option in the settings to turn those off, bc my phone does that just fine.
Whoever in the comments was complaining about no easy way to refresh: clicking on Inbox or All Mail (whichever is your preferred view) a couple of times refreshes the Gmail window.
