Normally I'm very *meh* on light UX wrapper apps over Gmail. But aww-heck if @Shortwave has done it! It's good! They found all the right features that all click with me. I'd use it for the Markdown shortcuts alone probably.
Time to put some serious magic to my inbox now. 🥳

Gmail has become hopeless and it's about to get worse. Shortwave is the only alternative that has worked for me and though many of its features seem minor additions, they add up to an email experience that's less frustrating and more functional.
@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.
This is the team you wanna join!
If you miss Inbox I highly recommend @Shortwave. It's Inbox reborn and in some ways even better. Also free if you don't need deep search history.
@Shortwave was already my default email client but now that they added label bundling and the ability to change automatic categorization in the mobile app, there is almost no reason for me to use regular Gmail any more.
This is quickly becoming the best app for @gmail

Shortwave continues to be my email client of choice. I was never an inbox zero guy, but Shortwave got me there.
Somewhat surprisingly, I'm still pleased to have switched to @Shortwave for email. They keep launching features at a pretty rapid clip. Today's release? Default bundles (e.g. Finance, Travel, Purchases) that remember how I categorize emails into them.
Huge thanks to @Shortwave for not only building the BEST email client (and continuing to improve it), but also providing some killer branded swag for feedback!

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