Shift Is A Desktop Email Client That Easily Switches Between Gmail Accounts

Windows/Mac/Linux: If you use multiple Gmail accounts, you’re used to having to open several tabs for everything. Shift alleviates this problem by opening up several accounts in one handy desktop client.

Shift gives you separate tabs to access Gmail, Calendar and Google Drive within a single window. If you want to switch to a different account, just click the profile tab on the left side of the window. Shift is free for two accounts. If you want more than that, it’s $US20 ($28)/year for unlimited accounts, which also includes support for accounts.



  • I use 5 accounts on gmail but they make it very easy to filter all your email into one inbox and they also grant you the ability to send from multiple gmail addresses so there is no need for an application like this… You can even customise your inbox so you can have a different inbox tab inside gmail for each account.

  • I use Shift. Can’t recommend it enough. I can keep all my accounts separate but access them all from one screen. This application has really helped my productivity. Plus it looks much nicer than in the browser and I can flick between my mail, calendar and drive easily.

    Give it a go! No I don’t work for them.

  • I tried Shift and sure, it’s good. However, It’s a fork of WMail and if you don’t need the Outlook capability Shift offers, WMail is much better for GMail and Inbox accounts. And it’s free. And no, I don’t have anything to do with the WMail project. 🙂
