It gives me the power to handle all my Gmail in one place. My experience with Kiwi is great. It helps me everything organized. Kiwi makes my life easy in many ways. In beginning can try it for free. It's a very clean and easy interface. Kiwi is a very reliable app. I recommend this to everyone. It's very cost-effective too. It keeps me updated every time. I like this because it saves me time. Kiwi is the best method to interact with all Google services. Awesome software comes with excellent customer support.

Most popular feedback for Planio

Overall: Overall Planio was once my favorite project tool, and I still recommend it when people want something very simple and lightweight. But other competitors like Monday.com, Asana, Airtable and others have really overtaken Redmine based products in the project management arena, so given that Planio isn't really much cheaper than the lower tiers of these other tools, it's hard to know where Planio really come out on top any more.

Postbox reviews

A great program, designed and built by people who obviously love what they do. The only email client you'll ever need (or want) - Outlook is a jalopy compared to this Rolls Royce!

- Andrew D. - Ashton-under-Lyne, UK

I like the features and support of third party tools like Evernote. And of course, I'm a friend of giving money to friends, that really work hard and help others to improve their lives. Thank your very much!!

- Peter Petry - Mainz/Germany

I love the clean look! And the search is BLAZING FAST. Postbox rocks. This is probably what I'll be using for the rest of my life.

Planio reviews

Overall: The system is reasonably fast, and good at what it does. Problems are responded to promptly (very quickly in some cases!). Over a 6 month period we reported three relatively obscure bugs, and all three were fixed within 24 to 48 hours. The core functionality is strong and reliable. If there is a negative, it's that the company makes assumptions about its user base which in our case do not apply, especially in the area of external task status change notification. Specifically, the system allows plain text email notifications, but these contain all the task data, which represent a serious potential leak of private information. To avoid that, one can activate encrypted email notifications, but then every member of the system MUST have encrypted email setup in their email client. As anyone who has ever tried to configure that in Outlook or Thunderbird can tell you, the installation of a certificate and the configuration of the client to use it are fraught with difficulties. Many people just give up. An ideal solution would be for the system to support plain-text email notification of task status changes as it does now, but with the option to not include the details, just the task title and the statement "The status of this task has changed. It is now assigned to you with XXXX Priority. Please see the task for details [link]". However, this is a relatively minor problem that does not detract significantly from our overall positive experience using the system. It's a strong solution.

Overall: Generally ugly looking and can be very clunky and frustrating to use. Overcomplicated for what we need. But it does the job for simple things, and I had a really good experience with customer support quickly fixing a bug.

- Amy G.

The obtaining of reports in relation to the hours worked, the assigned projects and the organizational structure is fantastic. We continue using Planio for all our projects. It allows us to optimize operations more and more.

Pros & cons

Postbox

Pros
The best feature is the ability to assign topics and create smart folder which makes controling you emails a breeze
For someone who receives many emails a day this is a godsend
I have a bunch of emails and Postbox helps me keep everything organized
I love the tags/labels panel and the filters work like a charm
I was a "die-hard" Eudora user....20 years worth of emails
This program was easy to set up and has a great feel to it
Postbox is a great option for users who want to keep their email on their own computer."
Cons
Then, to make things worse, my employer blocked IMAP on its Outlook accounts, so I cannot use Postbox at all any longer for my work email account
For some reason, Postbox fails to see it
Is there anyone at Postbox, to whom I've paid for the app, to contact about this
One is that when I look at my sent emails, there are many missing
When I look at the files in gmail itself they're all there
The feature I miss the most is the missing taskbar badge for unread mails under Windows."

Planio

Repositories for your projects are also a plus being able to see an issue asociated revisions of your code

Cons
Louise Engel was the customer support person that I dealt with and she was very prompt and professional while handling this problem
To avoid that, one can activate encrypted email notifications, but then every member of the system MUST have encrypted email setup in their email client
