Kiwi for Gmail Heads To Windows to Redefine Gmail/G Suite Experience

Both Mac and PC Users Now Able To Increase Productivity With Critically Acclaimed Desktop Application

 

New York, NY – April 25th, 2017 Zive’s Kiwi for Gmail 2.0, the top-rated Mac app for Gmail and G Suite, is now available on Windows. For the first time, PC users will be able to experience Google Apps in a whole new way by moving their email, accounts, and documents beyond the constraints of the browser to make people more productive on their desktops.

 

Zive’s Window’s application will make Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides look and feel as much like Microsoft Office as possible, while still preserving the uniqueness of G Suite.

 

“We believe that Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides are great apps, but companies should be able to use them like they’ve used Microsoft Office for the last 20 years,” says Eric Shashoua, CEO and Founder of Zive. “Since employees continue to do most of their work on the desktop” he continues, “It’s important to move beyond the browser which is great for content consumption, but very limiting when it comes to content creation.”

 

By providing multiple windows, desktop integration, and a simple, intuitive interface that allows users to quickly access each application, open new documents, and get back to their recent documents with a single click, Kiwi for Gmail 2.0 enables companies to implement all the great functionality of cloud computing and G-Suite apps in a better way. And – a first for Google Drive or its office apps – it works across multiple accounts.

 

Key features of Kiwi for Gmail 2.0 for Windows:

Ability to use Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides as native, windowed desktop applications within Kiwi for Gmail

Desktop icons that launch Docs, Sheets, and Slides directly

The Zen Switch- A do not disturb feature comparable to Android

“Important only” notifications that help you filter alerts

Global shortcuts that allow you to compose email drafts without leaving your current application

Significantly enhanced security with Zive Account Isolation

 

Zive’s Kiwi for Gmail application has the highest overall rating (average rating for all versions) of all third-party email apps on the Mac since its beta debut in 2015, surpassing other well-known apps such as AirMail, Unibox and Go for Gmail. Mac users have given both Kiwi for Gmail (paid) and Kiwi for Gmail Lite (free) 4.5 out of 5.0 stars, far surpassing the ratings of its competitors.
