Hiri is a business focused desktop e-mail client for sending and receiving e-mails, managing calendars, contacts, and tasks. It was developed as an alternative to existing e-mail clients and calendar applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird. Development on Hiri started in late 2012 in Dublin, Ireland.[2]

Hiri uses the cross-platform Qt[3] framework to run on (Windows[4], macOS[5][6] and Linux[7][8][9]). Hiri does not support IMAP and only uses Microsoft Exchange Server infrastructure.

Hiri has been funded by Telefonica[10][11][12], Delta Partners, ACT Venture Capital, Enterprise Ireland and Angel investors Facebook and Linkedin.[13][14][15]

In March 2017, Hiri began charging a subscription service ($39 yearly; $119 lifetime)[16].
