To make Shift more responsive to your machine’s RAM and processing power, we have introduced a smarter hibernation mode. Shift will take into account your machine’s specifications and use these to set hibernation mode limits, so you don’t have to. Based on the amount of RAM your machine has, Shift will intelligently turn on and off hibernation mode to help you get more out of Shift.
Simplify Extension for Gmail
With Inbox for Gmail shutting down, we wanted to offer our users an alternative. Made by the co-creator of Inbox for Gmail, we have added the Simplify Extension to our roster for our users interested in keeping the spirit of Inbox for Gmail alive. It simplifies the Gmail interface to the bare minimum. More details on Simplify here.
Skype for Business
Skype for Business has been removed from the Shift app directory. With some exploration, we have found that Skype for Business does not operate in Shift as we had originally intended. This is because Skype for Business is not a true web application, and therefore we are unable to support it in Shift to its full capacity.
