Shift desktop application to address workarounds for Gmail users
Canadian software provider Redbrick announced the release of Shift: a new native application for desktop that helps simplify and streamline the navigation of multiple Gmail accounts.

With Shift, the company's goal is to address the many workarounds that Gmail users commonly resort to when managing their various accounts, such as running multiple browsers simultaneously, setting up different users in Chrome, and adding email accounts and aliases to their primary Gmail account.

Shift is available as both a free and a Pro version for a yearly subscription of $19.99. The basic plan offers support for multi-account access; a sleek, clutter-free desktop application; easy switching between Mail, Calendar, and Drive; native desktop notifications; and cross-platform support for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The Pro package is available to users for a free 30-day trial with access to several additional features. In addition to the features that come standard with basic plan, Pro plan upgrades include unlimited inbox accounts and support for additional email providers like Outlook, and a removal of the "Sent with Shift" signature.

"Many people today rely on multiple Gmail accounts and G Suite apps like Docs, Drive and Calendar for both personal and business purposes. One of the biggest frustrations users face is constantly needing to toggle between these multiple accounts," said Redbrick CEO Tobyn Sowden. "You might need to view the Calendar for one account and Drive for another. That means logging in and out of the corresponding account or opening up multiple browsers or tabs, and generally cluttering up your browser. We built Shift to eliminate those pain points."
