Kiwi for Gmail

The Kickstarter-backed desktop Gmail client finally landed on the Mac App Store this week. With support for multiple email accounts (including Google Apps), notifications, Hangouts, Google Drive attachments, it comes pretty darn close to feeling like a native app from Google itself.

Keep an eye on: The company says it will be adding support for popular Gmail extensions like Boomerang in a future update.

Pro-tip: For when you want to get away from your inbox for a bit, the “Zen” switch helps you tune it all out by disabling notifications and email accounts to reduce distraction.

Medium

Medium has finally released the official version of its Android app. It allows you to browse posts published on the platform, check out your reading list and write and publish new posts of your own.

Keep an eye on: Your regular reading list is still available within the app and you can search for new content, though right now search is limited to specific stories, though Medium says it’s working on new options.

Pro-tip: Drafts you write in the app can’t be viewed or published from the web so make sure to fine tune your text within the app as much as possible.

Part Jenga, part physics game, the goal of Stack heroes is to perfectly place the falling blocks into a perfect stack.

Keep an eye on: As the game progresses, blocks fall faster and faster and become much more difficult to control.

Pro-tip: Knocking over a few blocks at a time can sometimes work in your favor: A well-placed block can sometimes knock over problematic areas of the structure.
