Why Shortwave?

Let's face it, your email isn't working for you. You're overwhelmed by a constant barrage of messages and tired of the never-ending struggle to clean up a confusing mess.

Shortwave brings order to the chaos — completely redesigning email from the ground up so you can stay calm, focused, and in control.

Understand your inbox at a glance

Threads are automatically categorized and bundled together to keep you organized by default. Want to customize things? Re-organize with drag 'n drop or use notification settings to control what enters your inbox. Use the sidebar to quickly see new messages, access drafts or view your full conversation history with your contacts.

Pin, snooze, done

Enjoy a workflow that actually works. Have an important email? Pin it. Want to handle it later? Snooze it. Everything else you can mark done with one click.

Work together

Create channels to keep your team on-topic and make past conversations searchable. Instant delivery, typing indicators, and emoji reactions make conversations with other Shortwave users come to life. Use mentions to notify the right people when you need them to join in.

I've reached inbox zero for the first time in my life, and Shortwave helped me do it in five minutes. I've never felt so on top of my inbox.

I’ve been using @shortwave for a couple months and love it. Bundles are great. Pinning, snoozing, and marking things done really helps me keep a clean inbox and on top of everything. Highly recommend giving it a go.

Shortwave completely changed my mind about email. It's fast. It's efficient. And it's... fun? Yes - somehow they made email fun. If you want to totally rethink what email can be and completely upgrade your email experience overnight, then start using Shortwave.

@shortwave has taken my email flow to the next level. A delightful “single-player” experience that absolutely shines when I interact with other Shortwavers.

@shortwave is the best email client I've ever used: email that feels like chat, built around your relationships. It's full of clever ideas like consistent formatting for emails, presence, and bundles. 10x improvement over Gmail.

Didn't think I'd be able to change my email workflow, but Shortwave is super intuitive and the one-click archive feature is sooo satisfying, there's no way I'm going back now.
