Don’t just take our word for it…


It remembers only what an elephant could, so I don't have to - that's why I love Kiwi!

Amber Deremiah, Product Owner at Zive, Inc.

I switched because Apple Mail was frequently not syncing with Gmail.  I never have any problems after switching to Kiwi. 

David Russ, President and Psychologist at Carolinas Counseling Group

Makes it easy to switch between email accounts (personal, work, other) quickly and within a single app.  Filters and pop-out compose email windows are nice features.  The sidebar menu gives easy and quick access to Google Workspace Apps. 

Greg Stringham, President at GS3 Strategies

I can download all my mail before a flight and work all flight long on responses and composing new mails that need to go out, with an Offline Inbox.  This platform is awesome!

Richard Sblendorio, Sales at Bio-Rad Labs

When first joining my company, I used up a lot of browser tabs trying to keep up with Gmail, Calendar, etc.  After trying several email clients (Outlook, Thunderbird...etc.) Kiwi was exactly what I needed.  Been using it since Oct of 2019 and never looked back. 

Chris Dove , Data Architect at Levvel LLC

I like Kiwi very much.  The more I use it, the easier it is to shed the use of email and Drive inside a browser.  It is much easier to follow a "workflow" outside of a browser. 

David DeVillers, Tech Support at St. Bonaventure High School

It's just like Outlook, BUT better.  I use Kiwi as my preferred email client to manage all of my Gmail accounts for my various businesses.  It's much easier to manage my 5 inboxes in one application.

Marcus Allen, Owner at MNTech

Next Level of Gmail.

Use Gmail and Google's office suite outside the browser as a standalone application with powerful enhanced features.

Gmail's a powerful application. The browser is a general-purpose tool. If you need to do serious work, here is your edge.

All of Your Gmail Accounts

In one place, at the ready.

Distinct from what Gmail uses in the browser, we designed a powerful engine that allows multiple accounts to be used together with 100% fidelity and no conflicts. It works with Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides as well. With our Elite plan, manage up to 9 of your own Gmail or Workspace accounts in one application. No more switching between browser tabs, accounts and windows. Just pure productivity. 

The Focus Filtered Inbox

Today View and More - Focus on a small list of emails.

Redefine your inbox on the fly to see what's come in today, or the past 2 days, or past week. Further whittle those down to only emails marked Important with Google AI, Unread, Attachments and Starred. Combine them to keep your inbox limited to a short list of your most relevant emails. Need to see your other emails? All it takes is a click to mix it up or turn it off.

A New Compose Window: Churn through your Emails.

Designed for even the heaviest email users.

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, Transformed.

Making Google Apps work like a Full Desktop Suite.

Finally a solution for office productivity that competes with Microsoft Office 365. Use Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides as native windowed desktop applications within Kiwi for Gmail.

Don't Lose your Documents.

You close a document, then struggle to find it.

Not anymore.

Kiwi tracks them as you use them. Open your recent documents, across all your accounts.

Multiple Windows, so you can Multi-Task.

Gmail and Docs, like never before.

Open documents in their own windows so you can multi-task like never before, using documents across applications and accounts.

Perfect for Multiple Monitors.

Take full advantage of your extra screen space.

Kiwi enables people with large screens and multiple monitors to use Workspace apps in a more intense, business-focused way.

Quickly Send Attachments

The simplest and quickest way to send files. Period.

  • 1  Open a message
  • 2  Hit the Drive button
  • 3  Drag it on

Outside the browser, Google Drive is suddenly your best friend.

Gmail as your Default Email Client

It's the simple things that make it seamless.

When you click an email address on the web or share by email, Gmail will open. Not Mail, not Outlook - Gmail.

Gmail Plugins

Now supporting Boomerang!

One of the great things about Gmail are third-party plugins. We just added support for Boomerang, our users' most requested plugin, and will be adding more in the future.

More Plugins are available in our enterprise version, Kiwi for G Suite.

Important-Only Notifications

Gmail's important flags are unique. Watch us use them to filter the noise of email, like no one else can.

The Zen Switch

Temporarily shut out all the noise of email.

Hide email counts, badges, and notifications until tomorrow. You'll still get notifications from other apps - just not email. Focus, without cutting off the outside world.

This is the software that Google should have developed itself.

Workspace users get more than a fresh coat of pixels. They also get a massive productivity upgrade.

The integration with Google Apps is extremely slick. An extremely clever app.

No longer will you have to rely on multiple Chrome tabs to access your favorite Workspace offerings on your Windows machine.

Potentially the best desktop client for Gmail users....Make(s) Workspace a contender for your default office tool.

By moving Workspace out of the browser, users can increase their productivity.

The ability to switch between a personal account and a paid Workspace account just by clicking a tab is worth the price of admission for me.

Transforms cloud-based Workspace applications into native desktop applications.

Apps run in their own windows, providing users with something closer to Microsoft Office in look and feel.

Kiwi for Gmail is simple and elegant in all the best ways. It's also fast, reliable and a Gmail user's dream.

It is awesome! I have tried Kiwi for Gmail lite version for the last month and today I just bought the full version.

Getting started with Kiwi is super simple.

I am loving Kiwi. So when are you making a Windows version?

Kiwi is a fantastic desktop experience for Gmail, and offers the most True-to-Google experience available on the Mac.

I'm SO excited and happy with the results and I've been telling all my friends. I love, love, love this app!

If you're a Gmail user, and especially if you use multiple Gmail/Google accounts, Kiwi is by far the best Mac app available.

@KiwiforGmail is kind of changing my life.

The Kiwi for Gmail app offers a pure Gmail experience from the comfort and convenience of your desktop.

Awesome, thanks! Loving the app!

Kiwi only does Gmail, and it does it well. Using Kiwi, you'll be able to access many of the features you've already come to know and love.

Between @KiwiforGmail (Just paid up) & @sunrise I'm happier than ever with my email and calendaring apps. #NerdOut #Cheers #GreatApps

Can't miss app.

@KiwiforGmail works great. If you're on Gmail that is.

With support for multiple email accounts, notifications, Hangouts, Google Drive attachments, it comes pretty darn close to feeling like a native app from Google itself.

Kiwi for Gmail #app Gmail into a full-powered desktop email client.

They delivered on their promises and gave so much more.

Loving the program!

I've been on the lookout for an app that would bring Gmail to my desktop in the same way that Outlook has done for more than a decade.

Love the program!

Working with email is a pleasure, and combines all the great elements of Gmail on my desktop.

I really love @KiwiforGmail -- a full-featured Gmail app for the Mac. Invaluable in helping me launch

They have delivered in exceptional ways ... Everything is easily presented and integrated into the app.

.@KiwiforGmail awesome @gmail app! Only thing preventing me fully switching is the lack of @sidekick and other extensions. #productivity

Kiwi for Gmail has easily become my go-to-place for communication. It's spreading throughout our organization, and has become the primary app we recommend.

Kiwi for Gmail brings Gmail right to your desktop and gives you a great way to access the popular email service from your Mac.
