About Boxy Suite
Boxy Suite is a suite of Google apps clients for Mac. It's built with the maximum attention to design and with the goal of making the apps great macOS citizens.
The Suite includes Boxy for Gmail and Boxy for Calendar. These clients wrap the Gmail and Calendar web apps and completely restyle them to match macOS UI conventions and make them much more responsive and compact. The clients also add native features on top, for example for account management and further customization.
These are not Electron apps. We've built them by choice with a custom stack based on Safari technologies; this presented us with technical challenges but allowed us to make the apps extremely lightweight and performant.
Boxy Suite also includes a 100% native app called Dashboard, which gives an overview of all your emails and calendar events, lets you quickly access the clients, and functions as a notifications hub. It's extremely lightweight and it allows to close the app when needed without missing out on notifications, and allowing the user to launch the right app, with the right account, in a single click.
Boxy Suite is made in Milan, Italy, by Fabrizio Rinaldi and Francesco Di Lorenzo, who first launched Boxy (an Inbox by Gmail client), in late 2015, working on it remotely after meeting on Twitter. Boxy has been purchased by more than 40.000 people in its lifetime.
