Skiff turns 3

Skiff turns three years old today!
Happy birthday graphic.
On April 1, 2020, Skiff was founded to build completely private yet uncompromisingly simple products. Today, three years later, we’re blown away by our community’s support, excited by product adoption, and determined to build even better products ahead.

In beta: Our first two years

In 2020 and 2021, Skiff had a minimal online presence and was focused on delivering our first product - Skiff Pages.Skiff Pages was built to be a modern, private collaboration product. As our lives become increasingly digital, privacy has become scarce, and every existing collaboration product lacked end-to-end encryption or collected a copious amount of data about users.Skiff Pages was built to be different and better: End-to-end encrypted, completely private, and designed in the model of new and more flexible team collaboration products - with subpages, powerful tables, and shortcuts and markdown for power users.Today, hundreds of thousands of people have used Skiff Pages to write notes, organize their team workspaces, and share public documents or wikis.

2022: Skiff Mail, Drive, and Calendar

2022 was a big year for Skiff, as we launched Skiff Mail, then Skiff Drive, and finally Skiff Calendar at the end of the year. We also launched mobile apps for each Skiff product, going from a web-only interface to the intuitive and ubiquitous native interfaces on iOS and Android. Today, Skiff Mail has over 100K downloads on the Google Play Store!Towards the end of 2022, we launched Skiff Calendar, bringing private schedules, meetings, and video events to all Skiff users. Revamped Skiff paid plans - Essential, Pro, and Business - have enabled businesses from 5 to 500 people to use Skiff effectively for their organization.New Skiff Mail features were also launched, including custom domains, remote content blocking, and easy import from other mail providers.

2023 - and beyond

2023 has already been a big year for Skiff. With Skiff Calendar and Drive mobile apps launched, Skiff Contacts released, and new features for businesses and teams (catch-all aliases, domain purchasing, and more), we’ve seen accelerating adoption and enthusiasm for a privacy-first workspace.Thank you so much to all of our users, supporters, and team members - we’ll continue sharing regular updates.
