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!

Almost perfect

This app works similarly to creating a Chrome shortcut, set to run in a window, for the Google web apps. However, Kiwi for Gmail adds a layer of convenience such as one-click filters and other shortcuts (not to mention multi-account support). One of the best features is a badge counter for unread emails in the dock and app bar! There is one feature that's missing which, in my opinion, would make it a 5-star app: better window switching. Clicking on a app icon opens a new window for that app...each time you click on the icon. It would make more sense that if an app window is already open, that window would instead switch to being active. I personally don't need to have multiple windows of my calendar or inbox open but maybe others do. At least provide an option to only allow one occurrence if each open. I guess what I'm looking for is something that works like Outlook.

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.
