  • (2020-01-09) Comandor X: not bad
  • (2020-01-06) Jun S. Lim: Stuffs don't work as I expected, and the app is so buggy.
  • (2020-01-02) Scott Cottone: Considering there is a slew of sites filling my inbox with news, weather, and the best deals anywhere on the internet, maybe you should've left my page, that I hunted down, alone.
  • (2019-12-28) todd borsuk: The best tab organizer I have found...
  • (2019-12-20) Pankaj Negi: 1 improve your Quote Catalog 2 gamil and calendar is not working
  • (2019-12-13) Leonardo Lamanna: INEXISTENT customization (you can modify just a few things and not even the background!) It does not allow speed-dials and built-in functions (such as Google Calendar) DO NOT WORK PROPERLY. A waste of time. Should be possible to reduce the size of widgets, add icons (as shotcuts) and change the background, among many others (MANY!) missing features. UNINSTALLING
  • (2019-12-02) Didi Ivanova: I am already using it for a while. What i like most are the great views behind and the easy-to-use TODO list, it makes me a bit more productive :D :) looking forward for new and useful features.
  • (2019-11-27) Nellie Good: Well I am just trying this out sounds rather interesting so I am looking forward to all it offers.
  • (2019-11-22) It's amazing, but i can't search with the thing. Minor setback tho, still great
  • (2019-11-15) Claudia White: It seems great, but I'm unable to connect to any of my Google accounts. Part of the appeal for me was being able to see my email and calendar as soon as I open my browser.
  • (2019-11-03) Dario Pizii: Fatta molto bene, ma non permette di accedere alle cartelle dei preferiti. Un vero peccato.
  • (2019-10-26) Damien Hinks: I like the look of the extension but can't get it to connect to my google account... so calendar and gmail doesn't work
  • (2019-10-24) Raymond Rollinger: Loved this tab, until I was unable to use the gmail widget. I can click on it and it will take me to my inbox, but before clicking it does not show a preview of my emails. If I click "Connect to Google," nothing happens.
  • (2019-10-12) kimmo kostamo: hyvä on
  • (2019-10-12) Alex Anderson: Ok, this is great, personally I love it, I do wish the photos for the background wouldnt change everyday, but whatever, the only other thing is that I am a highschoooler, and the school wifi blocks it on ocassion. other than that, I absolutely love it. And I do not know why so many people are complaining about the google search, it works fine for me, and I had this extention on my old computer, and it worked fine on there too
  • (2019-10-04) Gianni Guerra: a must have on my desktops
  • (2019-09-21) Victor Guillermo Lamy Carrasquel: Excelente, me encanta la aplicación, pero me gustan mas cuando automáticamente cambiaba el fondo.
  • (2019-09-17) Darth Beng: Wo ist er denn nu der Download er
  • (2019-09-04) Shaquita Randall: Ever since it updated, this been slow it don't show my gmail no more keeps saying connect to google which I'm already am connected and just moving slow.
  • (2019-08-31) Tim Mayglothling: When I first used this extension about a month ago I loved it. The thing I liked about it the most was having my Google calendar available every time I went to my start page or opened a new tab.but, all of a sudden, the link to Google no longer works. Without that major function I have no interest in this extension. It's a shame I can't find any alternative. If the Google integration is fixed I would re-enable it.
  • (2019-08-27) Alberto Quintero: Buena extensión y bonita, pero lo tengo que valorar negativamente porque no encuentro el modo de enlazarlo con mi cuenta de gmail.
  • (2019-08-20) Soul warmth: Неплохая программа, но не все нравится
  • (2019-08-17) Lindsey Lonadier: I loved this extension and it was 5 stars and within the last week or 2 - I haven't been able to login to my google account in any way to link it to the extension which means I can't see my calendar, gmail etc. and all the reasons why this was my favorite extension and now I can't find anything else similar even to use in replacement of it. ive done the uninstall and re-added it back to chrome at least 10 times in the last 2 weeks, everything is up to date in regards to chrome etc and havent made any changes to my computer otherwise that could even effect this type of thing... if there's something i'm missing here please let me know so i can reconnect or have everything working again and/or fix any bugs causing this. thanks.

    Customization is way too limited; would love to edit specific features eg. select the apps in "Apps", and especially drag, drop and reorder the features as I want visually through a layout mode or something (right now I can only disable and move in the list format but I don't know what that'll look like visually until after)
