4 Quick Tips For Mastering Google Calendar

When it comes to Google’s popular suite of apps, Google Calendar is probably, and paradoxically, one of the most used and most overlooked in the bunch. Many people use Calendar to keep track of things like meetings and birthdays, but very few ever go beyond using the app’s most basic features.

Shift Privacy: How Does OAuth Work?

OAuth is an authentication protocol used by Shift, and most well-known and respected applications that require access to your third party accounts. Essentially, it is the security measure that allows you (as the customer) to approve the interaction between the application you want to use, without actually giving away your password, and your third party accounts - in this case Gmail (Google). With so many new applications on the market, OAuth plays a very important role in providing assurance that your passwords, and the information they protect, are safe and secure.

Shift Was Built for You. Yes, You!

When we started building Shift, I got really excited. Our Director of Product was even more excited (cc Michael). He's like a Doctor for software pain points; he just wants to find the cure. With only a small sample population of our friends and family, I knew Shift would fill a serious void, but we also knew it would be shrewd to launch Shift Preview to test our theory.

How (Not) To Write An Email Greeting

Trying to come up with the perfect greeting for an email message is not always a simple task. The Internet has changed both the way we write, and the way we relate to each other. The lines between formal, friendly and linguistic fiasco have become blurred.

Why I Switched to Shift (after 6 years of Apple Mail)

Having managed communications across multiple platforms for years, Apple Mail gave me everything I needed. And, I had been burned by a few alternatives in the past.
