5 Tips For College

College is a big change from high school. Life becomes more complicated and keeping track of it all can be challenging - especially without your parents around to remind you when something falls through the cracks. Many students rely on Gmail for both their personal and school-issued email accounts. Plus, G Suite apps like Docs, Sheets and Slides are key tools used to complete classwork and collaborate with classmates on a daily basis.

Did you know Kiwi for Gmail is free for all students with an .edu email address? If you didn’t, this is your lucky day, because you’re about to become a more organized and efficient version of yourself.

Here are five ways our app can help change your college experience for better.

1. Manage Your Multiple Inboxes

From your school inbox to your pre-college life account that you use to keep in touch with all your old friends to your ‘applying for internships’ account, Kiwi will let you toggle between them seamlessly with ease. If you started the college year feeling overwhelmed, using Kiwi to more intuitively manage multiple inboxes is the first step to feeling on top of your new responsibilities.

2. Master Google Drive

End your frustrations with Google Drive by making it more intuitive and easier to use than ever before. One of the features Kiwi users love is how it makes Drive actually work. Not only does it eliminate having to sign in and out of accounts to get a Drive link to work, but Kiwi also enables you to share huge files with just a simple click.

3. Minimize Distractions

College life is full of distractions. Some are important (and fun). Others are not. But when you’re trying to work, every time you get interrupted by a new notification, message or knock on your door, it takes you time to refocus on what you need to get done.

Gmail's important flags are unique. Kiwi allows you to use them to filter the noise of email, like no one else can. Plus, our Zen Switch enables you to hide email counts, badges, and notifications until tomorrow. You'll still get notifications from other apps - just not email - which allows you to focus, without cutting off the outside world.

4. Embrace Multitasking

Unlock your productivity and spend less time working on homework by improving your ability to multitask. We’ve turned Google Apps into a full desktop productivity suite that rivals Microsoft Office 365 by transforming both the look and functionality of Gmail itself and how it works with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides in ways that simply aren’t possible in the browser.

Multiple windows changes everything. As you know, G Suite already helps you communicate and collaborate, but Kiwi for Gmail lets you work smarter. Our multiple windows and intuitive interface enables you to quickly access each application, open new documents, and get back to recent documents with a single click.

5. Become an Expert Collaborator

G Suite apps let you collaborate with classmates on projects and school assignments whenever and wherever you want. Kiwi maintains all this great collaboration technology you need, but enables you to use it in a better way by making Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides look and feel as much like Microsoft Office as possible.

Kiwi for Gmail will upgrade your G Suite experience and allow you to expertly jump in and out of projects with ease. Master Google Slides through Kiwi’s improved functionality and become the most productive person in every group assignment. What more could you want?

School is hard enough. So why not make the rest of your life as simple as possible? Download the best productivity tool for students for free. And while you’re at it, don’t just keep this to yourself. Share with your friends, fellow students and even your professors. Who knows, it might earn you some extra credit.
