Contacted sales about testing the unified search, since it sounds like a useful feature. However, in reality, its utility is dependent on implementation and performance.

Was told by sales to go ahead and pay for a subscription, since they're confident I'll like it, and if not, contact them back and they'll "see what they can do." (No assurance of a refund) In fact, I can't seem to find their refund policy anywhere.

Expecting customers to throw money at you just to see whether your software fits their needs seems like a bold policy.

Pros:

Integrated workflow. Well designed.

Cons:

Goodness, that price. No demo. Can't test any new features, including unified search, without plunking down the money.

Hi E.T.Cook. - appreciate you taking the time to review, and glad you like the overall design. Would you mind emailing us directly at hello@tryshift.com and mention this post? We'll make sure you're taken care of!
Would be good to have a few days to test the full app to see if it is worth buying.
Guys the price isnt worth it,,, and also the way they are asking money is a shitty way... first they asked 100 then 10% off, then when i closed the app they went to 50% off... no demo, cant add more apps without upgrade. well cant also uninstall the version 3.... Im using now Station which the same thing and allows you to manage and add your own apps, with just a link and a logo. added my crm.
I disagree. Shift is awesome - try it. Make sure you do the $99/yr plan so you get all the best features. I didn't really like the trial limitations.
As promised, your 'secret' coupon codes are here. Remember to act fast as there are only 100 of each! $30 off Shift Advanced, use: Advanced30 $10 off Pro, use: Pro10 If you’re brand new to Shift, simply head to our website, download the app and add the coupon code when you pay for Pro or Advanced.

👋 Hello again, Product Hunters! We originally built Shift to help you manage multiple Gmail accounts, end the logging-in-logging-out, multiple tab nightmare, and generally just get sh*t done. Now, we've taken things to the next level, and Shift 2.0 might just be the end to all of your productivity woes. We're now offering 3 plans: Basic, Pro, and Advanced to accommodate all of the requests we’ve received since our original launch. With the newest Shift 2.0 Advanced plan, we’ve added: - Unified Search - search across all of your Google accounts, or as I call it, the “receipt finder.” - Extension Support - right now, we’ve added Boomerang and Grammarly. More coming soon! - Apps - access to all of the most popular productivity apps (Slack, Trello, Asana, Invision, Jira…+20 others) - Google Services - before we had Mail, Calendar, and Drive… now we have more! Shift Pro has not been forgotten! It's faster than ever, and we’ve added access to Google Services and Notification Muting to the existing plan 🎉 If you’re just thinking about testing us out, Shift Basic is FREE, no strings attached 😇 Can’t wait to hear what you all think! Tobyn Pssst 👀 ...coupon codes are coming in the comments soon, but act fast as they are limited! Also, make sure to check out our referral program (refer 5 friends, and get Shift Advanced for free!).

@tobyns Wow! Shift in a new avatar. How is this/will this be different from Station which is free (with extensions)? I have a lot of similar apps, but I am waiting for the best ones that supports maximum extensions (it could be Shift or Station) Hunters, download it here (Ref)
@adithya Great question! Shift is different in that it really zeroes in on email being at the center of the typical user’s workflow, and 2.0 honors that, while offering support for all of the tools our users asked for. To add support for Chrome Extensions, we worked closely with the team at Brave for several months, and we're committed to building a sustainable business model that will make Shift a staple for many years to come.
@tobyns quick note here, we are seeing lots of our Pro users upgrade to Advanced today. Just for clarity, you will be charged a pro rated fee for the remainder of your current subscription, in the case you're wondering why it's less than the discounted annual price. Thanks again for all your support!

This reminded me of Franz, which is similar and free and which I'm using every day. I like Shift’s UI better, and apparently it supports Chrome Extensions, which is a plus. As a software engineer myself I support paying for good software, but $99 _per_year_ for what’s essentially a browser is just "interesting".

TIL that for desktop and e-mail apps, stickyness & retention is hard. Make me keep and use your product so long that using it becomes a habit and part of my routine, and I will miss it when it’s gone. With its very limited trial version, Shift 2 will be gone long before it had a chance to become a part of my work day.

Pros:

Nice, polished interface

Cons:

Wants to read my email(!), very limited trial, price doesn't match value

Hi Andreas, glad you like the UI so much! We request permissions using OAuth in order to enable unread counts and notification (not read your email!). Privacy and security are #1 around here - you can read more about how that works: https://blog.tryshift.com/privac.... As a software engineer, you might be interested in seeing all of the work we put into adding the support for Chrome Extensions as it was quite a huge feat. We are one of the first commercial Muon apps to do so (here's more on that: https://rdbrck.com/2017/11/redbr...). Thanks again for your review!
yes, that was my first reaction, it is like a paid form of Franz. I wonder if I should pay to get a nice version of franz. There's no trial period or test to see if the other channels work well, eg whatsapp slack or skype. If I can try, that will be best.

I've been using this Shift for a couple of months now and I'm still a fan of this tool but I'm not very happy with the current price ;)

Pros:

Nice interface and good idea if you need to manage with multiple accounts

Cons:

Price is now maybe a little bit too high
