Mimestream 1.0, a Gmail client for macOS, is now available

Mimestream 1.0, the Gmail client for macOS founded by former Apple Mail engineer Neil Jhaveri, is now available.

Jhaveri says it combines the power of macOS with Gmail’s advanced features for a new kind of email client that lets you move through your email effortlessly. Unlike other email clients that use the decades-old IMAP protocol, Mimestream uses the Gmail application programming interface (API), he adds. Jhaveri says that the key features of the app include:

  • Advanced triage functionality such as labels, inbox categories, server-side filters, calendar invitation responses, snooze, powerful Gmail search, list filtering, tracking prevention, and vacation responses. You’ll be at Inbox Zero in no time!
  • Organize multiple accounts and bring them together with Unified Inbox, or keep them in their own easily-accessible spaces with Profiles. Assign unique colors to accounts, set up working hours to limit notifications for work accounts, and even link profiles to macOS Focus Filters. No more switching back and forth in the browser!
  • Write effortlessly with features like templates, support for Gmail aliases, mentions, code blocks, smart lists, markdown substitutions, undo send, send-and-archive support, and even synced Gmail signatures. Mimestream makes replying to email fun and satisfying.
  • Leverage the power of your Mac with push notifications, advanced keyboard shortcuts, trackpad swipe gestures, a beautiful dark mode, sharing support, a menu bar extra, and more.

A fully functional 14-day trial is available for download. After the trial period, pricing for Mimestream is US $49.99/year or $4.99/month (plus tax). In addition, Jhaveri plans to offer plans for teams and companies to be able to buy multiple seats and pay with just one bill.

During our launch, he’s offering 40% off the first year of an annual plan, making it $29.99. This offer is available until June 9.
