Gmail for Mac release set for January

The release of Gmail for Mac is looking likely thanks to its Kickstarter campaign already reaching its target and looks set to be launched in January, although only for those that backed the it, for now anyway. What makes this so special is how it will take Gmail away from the browser and release it to the Doc on Mac OS X 10.10.

This Mac client for Gmail will give you the kind of mobile experience but on your desktop instead, something that has been demanded by Mac users for several years now, yet Google has not bothered releasing anything.

Zive has said they have done what Google should have done and made Gmail the way it should be for Mac users, as we know they either have to access it through the browser, or even set up their Gmail in Mac’s Email app, which is not the way most people like to do it, as it makes it feel a lot less like Google’s email service.

Progress — There is already a polished Alpha ready and waiting for release and so just needs extra backing, as the more money raised the faster its release will be, which should be January 2015. The client has already been upgraded to work with Yosemite, there is already a community in place ready to test things out, and much more, all of which can be explained on the Kickstarter website, or in the video below.

When it comes to pledging money to this campaign, the more you give the more you get. So $5 will give you early access to the Gmail, $9 for the Mac doc app or more gets you powerful video search, and the list goes on. However, you could just wait it out until the app become available to download in the Mac App Store, although not sure how much its price will be then.
