It stopped working two weeks ago.
by krisdogwalker on 2020/06/28 01:22
It stopped working two weeks ago. I can’t edit or add dates to my calendar.I’ve been using it for years! It’s been a lifeline for my work and appointments. I’m so bummed. 😢
Duplicate drafts driving me nuts
by Hitechprincess on 2019/04/05 19:48
I have used this app for years and loved it, recommended it to friends and colleagues, and appreciated the all-in-one usability. However since Google did away with Google+ (and I assume this is somehow related to that event), whenever I create an email or reply on this app on my iPhone I end up with several draft versions even after I've sent the final email. I have to go back, click edit for each one, and delete one by one. I deleted the app and reinstalled without success. Extremely frustrating for this longtime user and promoter of G-Whiz Plus!!! :(
I use the tasks feature
by Mtcarver on 2018/12/28 05:01
I use the tasks feature all the time. I depend on it. It’s very reliable.
G-Whiz review
by PatO'Morrill on 2017/12/16 02:32
This app worked fine for two years then Apple required an update of month ago and since then I have deleted it,added it back in and it still does not work. I was told if I got a newer phone it would probably work but my phones on two years old so I found a way to not need G-Whiz. This is a very to satisfied customer
CAUTION: AbandonWare - Functionality Crippled
by Mil_Mascaras on 2017/06/27 03:04
Caution: Developer Abandoned in Spring 2016. The “Gmail” part still works, but just about everything else is either deprecated, never connects, or just doesn’t work anymore. I bought in Dec 2015, and within 6 months ir become crippled. The first month it worked quite well. I keep looking for an update, but NO, the developer has abandoned this software since last year. Pretty much dead since Mid 2016...
Great app, made even better by new Google Mail
by thoughtful44 on 2016/11/19 20:42
I have always really liked G-whizz -- easy to manage, lots of apps easy to find. Now that Google Mail has updated itself, to something I rate as low as possible, G-while is even more appealing.
It's okay. It's a web browser. May be useful.
by crasshipster on 2016/10/07 22:05
I've just put the Facebook app back on my phone - I can't link a name in a post on this app. And it's a just a web browser, which I knew - but paid anyway. I wanted to get resource and notification hogs like the Facebook app off of my phone. I'm not on social media much - but I need quick access. Ideally this app will still be useful enough to keep.
Phone Feature - Two Thumbs Down
by Boss_Lady_Grady on 2016/10/03 06:02
I use this app primarily for the phone feature to review my call log history or the inbox feature. The feature hasn't worked in months. Via feel cheated because I paid for the app to eliminate the annoying ads on the free version. I loath deception! Get it together Google! 10/03/2016 Update: This app is still not functioning properly. Still can't check call log.
Video ads everywhere!!
by Gas'm all on 2016/09/18 19:25
Something changed recently and now in the app being bombarded by ads opening in a video window. Click close and it opens again. Making app useless. It's on the verge of being deleted. Back to google news app.
Confusing APP
by itsmetam2018 on 2016/08/17 19:18
Too much going on, too confusing. Hard to figure out what its purpose is. Didn't see any value in it.
Google rocks
by blacksatindancer912 on 2016/06/08 11:00
Although my favorite is Google stand alone app because of its wealthy data base (one needs only to type 2 key words or so) I love the all in one of Google plus!
Desktop View & Setting!
by drnbrown on 2016/03/20 20:54
This app is essential for viewing google apps in 'Desktop' mode and customizing settings!
It works
by sdickers on 2016/03/20 18:10
It keeps getting better.
Great App
by Sgt. Dave on 2016/02/27 15:49
Super Useful.
A Must Have
by Rwf1722 on 2016/02/18 03:48
This app is a must for anyone using Google Apps for EDUs on the iPad!
What the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version?
by TAbshire on 2016/02/17 13:11
I wanted to know what the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version? I noticed that the description for each version is EXACTLY alike. Thank you in advance for your time.
Getting awesome!!!
by Elysium306 on 2016/02/01 21:38
Love this app! It'd be better it REALLY runs in background, especially music when it's played from drive. Now, you play it, you leave the app, and it stops. Other than that, it's getting better and better every version! ^_^
Latest version is a downgrade
by Appppreviewer on 2015/12/16 11:08
The latest version, 4.01, is a total mess. They screwed up what was one of my favorite apps. Now it doesn't render news stories horizontally properly, doesn't remember when you are in a news story and leave the app, there is ad clutter on the top of the interface that is difficult to get rid off and they've even made it ugly. Bummer.
Great app
by zivvie on 2015/11/06 05:35
Works great!
easy to use
by Zesho on 2015/10/25 16:56
I can rely on this ap. Search function on IPAd is useful.
Too slow and too many drops
by Gdkeeth on 2015/10/25 08:52
It is just that, it is too slow and takes for ever to load on my iPad. I have switched doing email on my chromebook now because of this.
Great App
by Peetsno2 on 2015/10/23 13:36
I use this app to access all of my email accounts. It is by far the best app out there, in my opinion. There are some bugs that just cropped up in the last update with how the screen resizes itself, but the developers fix things very quickly, so I am not worried about that issue persisting.
Glitch
by Jguitar107 on 2015/10/13 17:46
The new update needs some work. Every time I go into my email, it shrinks and expands. Also when I turn the phone sideways I can't always go back to the email.
I can't open the app...
by Lady Fantastic on 2015/10/06 16:21
For some odd reason, I can't open it. I click on it and it starts to open and then it shuts down. Please help!!!
Intrusive noisy ads
by MKK0814 on 2015/10/02 11:25
It was fine...a little glitchy, but within acceptable limits...until they added noisy and intrusive ads with the most recent update. Deleted!
What happened!?!?
by counintrain on 2015/09/12 09:09
I've used the calendar feature of this app for over a year now. One day it worked great the next it's completely useless! The app crashes, gives error messages, freezes etc... It's a shame, I used this app throughout the day for my work schedule and now need to find an alternative. Not happy.
Convenient App
by SMC4Jesus on 2015/08/01 16:25
I like the convenience of this app but the navigation in some of the sub apps stinks at times. The arrows at the top of the form stop working, especially in the Google drive app.
Google G
by Riffleby on 2015/07/30 20:36
Having trouble verifying my phone number - have not been able to use my app because I have not been able to receive my SMS!
Good suite of applications
by pchemmonkey on 2015/06/03 01:22
The bundling is what drew me to this app. He price wasn't too high so as to eliminate further testing of the free version. Paid version is a little slow accessing email and some other Google apps, but overall it was worth the money. It hasn't disappointed me yet.
Horrible
by Shlomozee on 2015/05/09 19:28
I purchased the app to easily consolidate/access my gmail and google calendar information. All I get are crashes and error messages. I was just ripped off. This is the first time in a long time that I have had such an experience with an otherwise well reviewed productivity app.
Horrible... Too many logins
by dmshapiro on 2015/04/21 03:50
It repeats the login process infinitely even when I have my password correct. Not worth your money.
4 stars or 5?
by DeadboltSecurity on 2015/04/12 16:04
Used to crash and burn but pretty stable over the last year so 5 stars. I mostly use just the email but jumping into my calendar does work so it gives me more functionality over just the gmail app alone. All in all it works well for what i use it for.
A Useful App
by JKeno66 on 2015/04/05 22:29
All you need from an app is for it to deliver as promised - this one delivers.
Didn't think I would be able to use this because.....
by Google Fave on 2015/03/22 03:55
Potentially overload of applications and information but incredibly easy and useful.
Solid features
by john m shepard on 2015/03/17 22:15
Am enjoying the feature set for iPad. G-Whizz is my default email client for my iPad. It helps me stay connected with an array of apps I use regularly.
5 star
by Two by Two on 2015/03/01 02:59
🌟SUPER!!!!! LUV IT!!!🌟
Love it
by Raven Sage on 2015/02/12 06:19
I love that everything I use is all right here on one app. It's great. Thanks
Great start but needs work
by Capt. Skip on 2015/02/10 13:41
It's a great start, but needs work...
Work assistant

This app helps me with my work email
Awesome App!
by Elite Buttons on 2015/01/19 00:13
Awesome App!
Love this app!! , BUT
by Irisflowerp on 2015/01/16 12:00
This app is perfect, but Facebook is so slow to scroll through my feed. Everything else seems to be faster and efficient. I bought this app for all the benefits it offers, but I need my Facebook to work just as well. Can you tweak it please?? Otherwise, Awesome!!
Ok
by Tommydial on 2015/01/14 23:20
Needs a little work,but overall its better than others ive tried
Overall good App
by maji8 on 2015/01/09 16:01
I like being able to move through each of the Apps that I use most of the time in one place. There does seem to be some issues with freezing at times, but overall a good App.
Brilliant
by enkilm on 2014/12/22 02:25
Easy to use all info there when I want it What more can you ask?
Saving .pdf
by DanMcNamara on 2014/12/18 22:58
Wow...like it alot..so far....calendars are great and nice to have two google calendars usable! also, i can only attach pictures? No files? Not good..... you cannot download .pdf files, though. All you can do from what i see, is open them. I have to go back to the standard gmail app to download files.....bummer. hope you can get this fixed!
Was good
by Trickman2 on 2014/12/14 21:30
Not sure what happened but it is ultra slow now
Update has issues
by Greatwideworld on 2014/12/07 14:03
There are numerous annoyances with this update. Stop asking me to turn on the location services. The calendar hardly can be edited now.
Great app!
by Kahynes on 2014/11/26 02:07
Great app for Gmail.
Font is too small
by peters2014 on 2014/11/24 01:38
The app is very convenient, however the font size is so small that the information is barely legible and there is no way to enlarge the font within the app.
Guarantees that attachments get through
by Yodamark on 2014/11/20 20:42
When Apple mail fails, this app succeeds in making sure attachments are forwarded. Having Google as our firm's email provider, this app is a must have. Still a bit slow at times, thus the four stars.
Very fine program
by Gfmichaels on 2014/11/18 13:20
I use it mainly for easy gmail and google calendar access on my iPhone.
Efficient!
by chileylimon on 2014/11/17 17:23
Agree with the review that app needs some tweaks for calendar. Love how one app gives me flexibility to access almost all my Google apps. Groups requires me to select the "desktop" version so I can toggle between my domain's groups & groups I follow. Annoying. Otherwise, superb app. Worth the price.
Works.
by TheTonyCheng on 2014/11/16 13:34
Cool. Works. Like it.
Idiotic design
by Rkg12331 on 2014/11/14 23:29
Facebook is too complex to use. Too many features for nothing.
Great app
by Fcodispoti on 2014/11/14 18:48
Easy to use. Would like to see options for adding your own tabs like for LinkedIn
Needs a few tweaks
by PJDenver on 2014/11/14 17:06
I've been using this app for a while and it's a very convenient way to move between Google apps from a central location. I do have two complaints, however. (1) Why can't Chrome be included as one of the navigation choices? (2) The Calendar function does not have a way to set a reminder for a newly added appointment or event. To set a reminder you have to go into the native Google calendar that you can only get to by following a link at the bottom of the calendar page. And when you do this you get a warning that using this version, rather than the mobile version, will reduce functionality. Why can't you just make the Google native calendar, which folks use on their desktop, the main supported calendar within the app?
Good but could be great
by kiwabound on 2014/10/28 20:19
I really wish it remembered my preference to view my primary email
Almost
by LDYinNH on 2014/10/20 14:30
I bought the "plus" version a couple of years ago and have used it every day since. I like the format and UI, but lately, it takes soooo long time for my email to load. Too long. Will set the app aside and use another app until this gets fixed. Soon, I hope. Update Oct 2014: Came back to retry. App seems to take longer than ever to load, and now asks for my location EVERY time.
Great, but buggy with the iOS upgrade
by Kenteman on 2014/10/16 12:49
Works great, but with the IOS 8 upgrade it crashes when you attach a file to Gmail. :(
Me likes it!
by AkimboCat on 2014/10/12 22:46
Sluggish app on ios7 And I think you will, too. Thanks for the app, Google! Okay, Yopyopyop...still happy.
Bought wrong app
by Moodygirl150 on 2014/10/01 22:47
I own iPhone 5 given as gift wanted to download google play store thought this was it don't want this app could I have my money refunded to me please wanted store app with Google. Can you help me.
Crashes!
by that1chikk on 2014/10/01 02:09
This app is unstable and crashes over and over. You can't post to Facebook without having to log in. When you log in the app tells you you already authorized Facebook but will not let you post. The transition between the other apps (Pintrest, Instagram, Gmail,etc) is not seamless. I am uninstalling this app because it is easier to just do without it.
Review
by pwdercat on 2014/09/22 00:26
Does what it's supposed to.
Wish list
by Trade warrior on 2014/09/21 22:54
Good but would like more if two more features existed: (1) automatically open on today's date and (2) display the start and stop time for each event in "day" mode.
Saves Space
by Christibug on 2014/09/11 19:38
I really love this app for mobile devices without a lot of storage space for multiple apps. The built in apps work very well. It is worth the money to get the full feature version.
Prefer this to the Gmail app
by FrodoJRR on 2014/09/05 02:45
I actually prefer this to the actual Gmail app. It offers so much more, and works. 'Nuff said, I guess.
Mike's google plus review
by missilemikeD on 2014/08/31 04:48
Why would any normal person not use this superb app? I have experienced true joy with the easy connections to various programs and websites, that is exactly why I challenge the world to try and surpass this fantastic app.
Great app
by Trixie in TN on 2014/08/25 17:09
Great app, no issues, best shared calendar
Plug me-in

At my fingers
by Irmin1964 on 2014/08/04 16:08
Love having everything there on one screen. App is easy to use. Great job! Worth the investment.
This us a very versatile app
by Harry s. cpa on 2014/07/26 13:43
I like that many Google apps are so easily integrated. It is convenient to have them dell in one place.
Great app for Apple /Google user
by TM Wheeler on 2014/07/22 08:04
I love my google apps and G whiz allows me to easily move between several of my favorite google applications while on my ipad. It is very helpful for accessing gmail, google calendar, google groups, and other apps. For a old school PC user it makes using the google tools on the ipad easy.
Great App
by Escarabajo on 2014/07/13 09:56
App gives a great alternative to be able to work in Google Mail without having to use "conversation view" and a one stop shop for my google apps.
Great app
by Rshimp on 2014/07/08 16:04
This is awesome! Took the place of five separate apps on my phone! The only problem is it crashes frequently.
Great!
by Bbobbbbbbbbbbbbb on 2014/07/08 02:11
It is very handy to check email and documents from my phone or iPad. I use it a lot.
Nice App, when it works
by Blazian5 on 2014/07/07 04:56
Lots of potential, but program frequently closes unexpectedly. No audio on Facebook videos. When clicking on a link, app often shuts down.
Great app, but minor buggy issues
by MsSol on 2014/07/05 23:17
Love being able to use Gmail and GoogleCalendar in one place, so much better than Apple software's syncing for e-mail. Like how emails can be organized in Gmail folders too. Update 7/05: new updates have been applied, and so far so good - less buggy than before.
Great way to combine Google services
by Biochem2 on 2014/07/04 15:26
Mostly use it for gmail but it can do do much more!
Great program, I bought the expanded version
by Wfward on 2014/07/04 11:25
I like how it works, it's reliable, doesn't crash, allows me to read all google stuff (email, voice, calendar, etc.) and each one has both the desktop and web versions so I can choose how the information is displayed. Good job folks!
Pretty useful doing multiple task
by Dodobird0726 on 2014/07/03 21:47
I dont like how the things are arranged but i still like how i could do multiple things on it
Great all around app

Good link to Outlook and calendar.

Like the ease of staying in touch with my various calendars. Nice, simple, visual app. Thx!
I did love this app but....
by Macgonzo77 on 2014/06/09 04:27
When I first started to use this app I loved it, after the last two updates this app now freezes on a daily basis. Please fix these issues as I would love to continue using this app.
The only app I care about
by Gwhizz does it all. Ish on 2014/06/08 00:43
Makes an iPad almost worth owning. Now let's get gmail component up to speed. a year or two later, this is still the truth. i'd love to see cloudmagic become the provider of the gmail experience, which remains the weakest link in an otherwise excellent app.
Great app, use every day!
by Birdmom9726 on 2014/06/03 20:43
I love the convenience of having most everything I need in one app - I love it.
Easy to use!
by worthylotus on 2014/05/29 19:05
Love the ease of use & multi-functionality of this app!!
Not bad
by Anec on 2014/05/28 17:23
Works as it should. Still getting adverts and recommendation apps. Don't care for that. It's a daily tool but still needs some work for spreadsheet editing.
Said by others, my experience, too
by DrKvP on 2014/05/27 04:18
Good app, good design, a little buggy at times, but an excellent collection of Google apps in one place. Best aggregator I've seen for that purpose.
nice app
by Ice2gofirst on 2014/05/24 14:46
I love having all the main areas of my online lifecycle in one place. Ive actually did away with a few of the other app to save space.
Great

Great that you can view other calendar that's shared to you
Great organization, simple to use!

Ok
by Angelina h on 2014/05/20 23:10
I liked this app before they placed an ad section over the tool bar for gmail. Now I can't delete or clean out my inbox, nor perform other operations. Clear design flaw. I will uninstall and get the app directly from gmail instead.
Getting awesome!!!
by Elysium306 on 2016/02/01 21:38
Love this app! It'd be better it REALLY runs in background, especially music when it's played from drive. Now, you play it, you leave the app, and it stops. Other than that, it's getting better and better every version! ^_^

This app worked fine for two years then Apple required an update of month ago and since then I have deleted it,added it back in and it still does not work.

Something changed recently and now in the app being bombarded by ads opening in a video window. Click close and it opens again. Making app useless. It's on the verge of being deleted. Back to google news app.

by Nuts-n-Bolts on 2012/01/08 21:31
I like using the IM feature in gmail, and was excited to have it on my phone. "Talk" works great if you keep it on screen/active, but when notified you have a response to a conversation, 9 out of 10 times the conv stream is gone - Gwiz prompts you to "Refresh" and it does not. You end up with just one entry in the field, and if you forgot what the conversation was about you're left with having to go into your gmail and pull up the old part of the conv in Chats, or sometimes the old conv is in your inbox with the update. This is the only thorn for me, and I hope it gets sorted. Otherwise this app encompasses everything in gmail. Nice to have access to my Documents and (online) Picassa albums. Links you click on in this app keep you within the app, this is good, but it can get a little cramped on screen, and feels slow at times. These problems were not enough to keep me from buying the full version - after using the light version.
What the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version?
by TAbshire on 2016/02/17 13:11
I wanted to know what the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version? I noticed that the description for each version is EXACTLY alike. Thank you in advance for your time.
Confusing APP
by itsmetam2018 on 2016/08/17 19:18
Too much going on, too confusing. Hard to figure out what its purpose is. Didn't see any value in it.
A Must Have
by Rwf1722 on 2016/02/18 03:48
This app is a must for anyone using Google Apps for EDUs on the iPad!
Great App
by Sgt. Dave on 2016/02/27 15:49
Super Useful.
This is for the social media driven person who can't act till all is been checked updated and.....
by ToMMyBoI508 on 2011/12/14 18:48
As one of the many, who is caught up, or should I dare to say is prompted. Arise from slumber to rush to the iPad, iPhone, laptop, or even desktop. Knowing that there will be dozens of emails notification and pokes and tag and can't forget tweets. The averaged American or should I say person in general is ruled by social media. This app I one of my go to apps when I have a short time to be jumping from app to app. There is everything and anything you would need to get threw your day just here all in this one app. I use this as a way to sum up the average amount of who what when and why of the day is sent to me. Or about me. This world is faster becoming more computer based. Then personal based. Everything a person or personal assistant would do is here at the tap of one app. Why pay to have some one do it for you when it can just be brought to one easily learned app. I'm far from saying don't go on your soul Facebook app twitter app and so on but this will cut the am update time in second. This is an app I have given my self as a thank god it all there and I don't have to keep jumping out and into other apps. If you are a social media driven person that has to have it all there in one app this is the app for you. loves it !!!!
Glitchy Reader
by Ghjklpoi on 2012/01/24 03:12
Seemed fine when I "test drove" the free version, but I upgraded to the paid app and suddenly the settings were different. I bought the app primarily for Reader (although I use a lot of google apps so I figured I would eventually try the others). I finally figured out that the free app had defaulted to "Desktop Look" for Reader and I changed the paid app settings to match. Now it looked the way I wanted, but the functionality was glitchy. It's nearly impossible to "click" the nav pane (on left) in the magical "right" way that the app seems to want. As a result, I find it nearly impossible to change to a different feed. Sometimes the reading pane (right side) is really finicky as well and you can only scroll if your finger is just on top of the scroll bar, which is annoying. I've closed the app, uninstalled and reinstalled several times, retried the free version, updated my OS, everything I can think of to resolve the issue to no avail. The reading pane functionality may have been improved by one of those things, but being largely unable to switch feeds makes that irrelevant. I guess I must not have tested the free version long enough, because this app (for Reader) has become pointless.
Was a great program 4-5 star
by GW1 on 2011/08/07 17:01
This is a re-review of the program. The last update seems to have fixed the image display issue with the e-mail. The program is still a little unstable when changing from e-mail to web and back. I am sure future updates will address the issue. I would give the program a 5 star if the developer would comment on report bugs. Even if it was a form letter. Prior review I have been using the program for quite sometime. The program worked very well and I used it for reading my e-mail over other programs. The last upgrade was a actual downgrade. I no longer can display images. The show images button does not work. I have reinstalled the program several times with no results. I contacted the developers of the program with no response. Perhaps when people stop buying the program they will provide a fix. For now, I would stay away from this program.
Can NOT open attachments in other Apps...major problem for me...
by Hector_C on 2012/04/02 11:54
These comments are for the paid version. Browser like functionality for Gmail use which is nice...you can 'send from' your different email accounts directly from G-Whizz. This is Google's mobile web page, and the GWHIZZ app is only behaving like a browser I believe, so no real points for G-Whizz on that one. Major problem is if you need to open an attachment in another app...like Dropbox, DocstoGo, Sugarsync or any other (like Sign'nSend to sign a document and send back out with you signature, or any other to markup your attached file and send back out). You canNOT do this with G-Whizz. To be FAIR you can 'Open in Safari' and Safari allows you to 'Open in...' another app....BUT WHY PAY for an App when Safari will do ALL of the Mail features for free ? This extra step and mis-use of resources is even worse. HOPE YOU CAN FIX this 'Open in...' missing feature soon...it's a big one to me and probably other users! PS - Cannot save documents in Google Docs either. Regarding Google Docs, a complimentary desktop (pc, mac, linux) application would make sense to help sync or upload/download folders/files...this one is a wish list because there are a couple of individual programs out there to do this. It's just that if you're promoting app as an "end all" type of solution to work with Google, this is a major issue for Google Docs users...maybe make it an inapp option/purchase for those who need it.
Needs a few changes
by Prncs522 on 2013/09/14 04:02
Where are G Chats? I'd like to have access to my contacts and be able to chat with them. Also, why do I have to enter my password EVERY time I want to log in? I used to be able to sign in endlessly without having to enter my password. Really frustrating and I'm not sure the push notifications work properly. I'd like to have a number of emails that includes all my filters and not just my inbox. Finally, PLEASE update the entry format for calendar events. Contrary to what the app dictates, events start and end at times that are not on the quarter-hour. Resolving these issues, I would be a much happier user. New update has none of my suggestions...also, to add to the issue, I've opened the app twice and had it crash both times. Additionally, I've had a label that indicates and unread email, but cannot find the email!! What's th deal?!?!
Very useful, but with some glitches that should be fixed
by Michael Cregge on 2012/02/17 11:06
I really like the capability to go from gmail to Facebook to Twitter to reader and other Google apps, but there seems to be some problem that causes occasionally long delays when going to Facebook. Perhaps it is the fault of Facebook, but there are no similar delays encountered when viewing the news feed from the Facebook app for iPad or from Safari. Also, i don't know how to use G-Whiz to continue a Google Voice text conversation. There is a button for starting a text message or place a call, but I don't know how to continue a conversation in progress. So this is an application with real potential. I would prefer to use an application like this to using individual apps, but more work needs to be done. I will be looking for updates resolving the issues I described.
Needs a few tweaks
by PJDenver on 2014/11/14 17:06
I've been using this app for a while and it's a very convenient way to move between Google apps from a central location. I do have two complaints, however. (1) Why can't Chrome be included as one of the navigation choices? (2) The Calendar function does not have a way to set a reminder for a newly added appointment or event. To set a reminder you have to go into the native Google calendar that you can only get to by following a link at the bottom of the calendar page. And when you do this you get a warning that using this version, rather than the mobile version, will reduce functionality. Why can't you just make the Google native calendar, which folks use on their desktop, the main supported calendar within the app?
Not bad so far for a browser with the main google app
by scadarick on 2011/12/18 01:34
Basically this google apps browser is great for use with my iPad 2, since everything just about revolves around these apps because of iPad, it seemed like a very useful app so far. Only had 1 problem with it it closing after I open it then choose the out selection icon for bookmarks, email and so on. If I don't choose something, it just closes. At the moment I am going to say close and not crash because I am not sure it's by design or it is a crash, we shall see in future releases. But for my first go at, very impressed after signing n to everything, making a few tweaks, I must sy it's a very nice app for my collection and maybe daily use, got dolphin HD, so it's hard to change...will see. Nice work though! Scadarick
Very Handy
by paulish on 2010/05/31 10:34
This app does everything it says it will and a bit more. The author is amazingly quick to respond to support queries, replying to each of my requests within minutes (though I suppose I may not have found this to be the case if I'd happened to have e-mailed him while he was asleep). I've put the icon for G-Whiz on my dock in place of the one that starts Apple's e-mail app because the G-Mail (and Google Apps mail) interface in G-Whiz is better than Apple's. The only thing missing, as far as I'm concerned, is Google Wave, but the author says he plans to add it as soon as Wave becomes less of a moving target (hmm, not the best fitting metaphor I've ever used--waves should always move, except, I guess, for standing waves). That not enough to get me to withhold a star though.
Doesn't deliver!
by 1fastKAR on 2013/03/21 23:03
The description sounded fantastic so I jumped in. Sadly this app is no different than the FREE Gmail app... you're still confined to the limited and crappy half-screen view of your email that Google sticks you with (vs the full screen view from the built in Mail app). Granted, you can at least view an emulated rendering of the full Gsnail web site, if you can tolerate the lag. And the idea of accessing other Google services is limited. Most are limited functionality and you still cannot use Google Talk nor Video conferencing. Another complaint is the inability to send email attachments to other INSTALLED applications, like Adobe Acrobat for instance in case, God forbid you want to print or save something (which, again, isn't a problem in the default Mail app). Finally, the app crashes constantly. Save your money and install Gmail. It's pathetic as a mail client, but at least it's free and does give you somewhat more control in managing your email.
Simple. Reliable. Comprehensive
by cheetahbait on 2013/03/11 03:23
If you want to open one app and toggle between calendar, email, tasks, google drive that doesn't try to reinvent the google experience this is a excellent choice. You can customize the menu at the bottom which has made it my most valuable app.. I have installed the new gdrive and gmail and it takes forever to load on my OG iPad. While its no secret that Google tries to be everything to everyone and ends being mostly mediocre this app simply delivers Googles non remarkable product in a no nonsense straight forward manner. I expected Gwhiz to crash with its range of function but it has been very dependable unlike some many apps released that shouldn't due to poor reliability.
Good app
by MYUPDATESUCKED on 2011/12/28 16:26
I only give this app 4 stars due to a couple small things I don't care for. First thing, sometimes when your on talk, it tells you there are no contacts to display and when you type a name into search it just keeps spinning and thinking without a result. Second, the Facebook app is frustrating due to, when clicking on a thread or picture, instead of going back to where you were, you are forced to start at the top of the news feed. I got this app mainly for the talk feature, and besides the occasional "No contacts to display", I am satisfied with this app. I paid $.99 for it, witch I thought was a much better price than the $2.99 it was originally listed at. The $2.99 was too much just for getting rid of adds.
Very handy with a few wish list items
by BikeBookBread on 2011/07/18 02:58
I love the convenience of all of my Google apps in one place, however, there are things that could be improved: The browser function is almost useless. When you click on a link in either a gmail message or in blog feed (and perhaps other applications that I don't use) the "browser" function does not load pages as expected. For example, if I am reading a blog post or LiveJournal entry in Reader, and I click to comment within Browser, nothing happens, so I have to leave the app and go to the actual webpage in Safari to make a comment, negating the "all in one place" ease of the app. I need to be able to see contacts in e-mail. Unless I can't find it, there is no directory of contacts. Yes, if you know the email address or name of the person to whom you are sending, great, you type it and it populates. However, there are times when I need to see the list of contacts to trigger my memory and find the person I wish to send my message to. It would be nice to have a Blogger button so one could post from within the app. All-in-all, it is a nice app and would recommend.
Almost perfect... Will change rating if fixed...
by FixMyApps on 2011/10/19 03:52
This is a pretty solid app. Generally awesome. Three things keeping it from being five stars instead of three: It keeps losing connection to gchat... I would like it to keep me "always online" so I get push notifications when anyone tries to contact me... and it tries so hard. But it doesn't always keep me on and I will often open the app up from the background to find it is trying to reconnect to a network it shouldn't have lost a connection to. Second: it doesn't recognize phone numbers or email addresses. Can't click on them. Third: it should push mail. It shocks me that this isn't even an option. I'm tired of using active exchange for push notifications only to use the epic new unlock thing from ios5 to go to directly to the email in the native mail app, read it there because it was so fast to access that way, then switch apps and navigate to that message in order to reply properly using all of gmail mobile's convenient and streamlined features... These are things I kinda expected it would do. I would return it, but I am too lazy. I just wish they would fix it, because I really do like how the app works.
Good but can improve
by kinanaskomitin on 2012/06/22 14:07
I like this app to check my Gmail account. It is more friendly than the app the ipad comes with, specially when you try to delete messages. It also shows the labels and filters I have created in Gmail, which helps me a lot to prioritize what I am going to read first. I also like the fact that it recognizes all my address book so it makes it easier to send emails. However, the browser doesn't work well: if I try to open a link from an email, or open an attachment (pictures, pdfs) it seems it tries to open the browser but does nothing, I get a blank screen. I have to use other apps for that. Kinda of dissapointing and very inconvenient. They should sell the app for less $ to make the price worth the quality of the product.
Very Google
by NovaMojo on 2012/05/07 15:37
I give 4 stars just because there is always room for improvement. The app is perfect for getting to all things google in one spot. I use it all the time, I put it on the dock. Looks and acts just like Google the in a browser which many people probably think is the smart way to design it, because everyone will know exactly how to use it, it's hard to argue against that but... I'm a designer I'd like to see a Flipboard or Pulse-like interface, at least an app that's made for a touchscreen interface. It's the tail wagging the dog, but the reality is it's going to be touchscreen, tablet/phone world. Give me big buttons for my fingers to hit easy. Do that and I'll probably give you 4 stars because it's not like the old google....
Meh
by ChrisInYpsi on 2010/05/07 00:02
It's basically a stand alone web browser that integrates all the Google mobile web pages. No new content that you can't already get through Safari. Mildly handy to have all Google's sites integrated, but I was hoping for something unique. The biggest dissapointment for me is the lack of Tasks on the iPad. Tasks is currently not available on the iPad for some reason. This seems to be a Google issue since it isn't working in Safari or this app. But since Tasks is listed as one of the 18 Google services accessible thourgh this G-Wizz app I thought maybe this developer had designed a work around. No such luck - Tasks does not work in this app either (on the iPad). Major bummer. The developer might want to make a note of this on the App Store description so other iPad user's aren't misled.
Doc support needs work
by Dtlonderee on 2011/05/04 20:26
This app functions well for the most part, but needs major help in the Google Docs area. I found the same problems with this app as I did with Safari ... using a bluetooth keyboard there are some serious bugs in typing text. These seriously affect the ability to edit docs. Also, there is no way to share a document unless you choose to use the desktop version, which doesn't integrate well with iOS. I also found that the settings options were very limited. Could not find a way to force this app to fetch new mail. I would hear a notification in my native mail app and then would have to refresh my inbox to see new messages. If you get it while it's on sale, it's worth it. If not, wait for it to go on sale again.
Soooo helpful, but...
by Starlitcitygirl on 2011/11/23 15:42
This is a great app for someone who operates entirely through gmail and google products. I only wish you could access docs and the calendar while offline, if you pull up a certain doc in advance and leave it open so it can be viewed without Internet, or if you just want to look at your calendar and not save it. Also, the desktop versions are much better than the mobile versions, and they seem to work fine despite warnings that they won't. I just like how the desktop calendar is laid out, and you can't archive google voice messages in the mobile version. But overall, great app! I love keeping all of my google stuff in one place!
Gee Wiz
by Google Apps Browser on 2012/12/27 09:05
I absolutely love this app because I am a visually impaired user and there really isn't much out there for us like that, but I FOUND 1 that actuallly works so far and I am truely thankful, because all of those other apps were very difficult to use and navigate, just to sign in was a pain to do! This app is not only good for sighted users but it is also good for us blind users as well! Thank you! This app is great! To the people who made this app, if you can continue revolutionizing apps! that would be great for my friends and I! Most of the people are blind and they will love this app as much as I do! Thank you once again guys! I love this app!
How is this different than using the google website in safari?
by sloss88 on 2012/01/01 23:10
Somehow I expected this to be based on the google API to be able to interface with your google data, docs, contacts, etc.... I mean typically when you charge 3 to 10 dollars for an app you're implying that you did some serious development right? Instead it is a bunch of laggy bookmarks to each individual google app on their website that displays in a browser window without back buttons. And it manages to crash every other time I try to load a new page or type something in. Was looking for an app for to use google docs with, for which this is genuinely worthless. Tasks was too buggy. And the second time checking gmail i got a popup advert from the developer? No thanks. Judging by the other glowing reviews I guess I just don't get it? Maybe I am using the internets wrong?
Think twice
by rbinz on 2011/09/26 05:06
I bought this app for only one use, to use it as a gateway to open and edit my google docs, spreadsheets primarily. This portion of the app has no features of it's own, it is nothing more than a new skin for safari. Well it works worse than safari alone as when I hit the link for app view in the spreadsheet I get an error this feature was not supported yet and there was no way to clear the message so I was forced to reboot the iPad. As I looked at this app in more detail it is not much more than the free google app, especially when you hit the apps button inside google app, nearly the same GUI. So I say think twice, this app does not build upon the native access but a new GUI / skin for efforts you already have, maybe the skin is worth the price for you but this app had zero return on my expense.
To buy or not to buy...
by CubeIt2010 on 2011/07/19 03:23
I love my Google apps... We are a family of 5 and we all have our own calendars... I have found it difficult integrate all of our calendars into the iPad 2 included app. With this app it looks just like it does on my desktop... My Google Voice works, I have access to all of my email, contacts, etc. Plus any of the other Google apps that I like and use so much... This app should be listed as a "MUST HAVE" Well worth far more than what they charge... This app will be on every iPad that each member of my family has... I just learned that I can't scroll down in my emails... This is a problem... I will update as it becomes available... To date the only problem that I've found is that you can't scroll in desktop mode... :-/
I love this app, but.......
by Mitchell Edwards on 2012/09/20 09:05
I love this app! I can get so many things done in one place but....... I can't stand how it constantly gives me a pop up message every time I want to view the calendar in desktop view rather than mobile view on the iPad. I haven't had any problem running the calendar in the desktop view, so I don't see why I have to clear the message every time, then deal with having the constant reminder at the top saying, "having trouble viewing the calendar, switch to mobile view." Perhaps something could be done about this but I will cope with it because of the rest of the features.
Has potential...
by Luhmann on 2010/05/21 06:49
Currently, this app is a little worse than using Safari. If you know how to add items to your bookmarks bar in Safari, and how to turn on the setting that makes the bar always visible, Safari can do evereything this can do, and more. Since I can't access my bookmarklets, I can't use Instapaper, readability, evernote, delicious, Twitter, or other services I use via bookmarklets in Safari. The program also does not consistently load the English / US version of for each of the Google sites, despite having set that as the default in the preferences. However, I like the idea of a dedicated Google app browser, and if some additional functions were added, like push notifications and Instapaper support, it might turn into something nice. As it is, I feel I wasted my money...
BEWARE, App no longer under development
by tcatnat on 2013/02/10 01:58
Although the app works and is functional I didn't realize it had not been updated since 2011; this obviously means no support for iPhone 5 screen size. I foolishly purchased this based on all the glowing reviews and the fact that it was an all encompassing Google app. After realizing there was no iPhone 5 screen size support I did some searching and found many comments that the developer has been none responsive to requests for support due to app crashing and slow load times on iOS 6. I have not experienced slow load times but am really frustrated that there's no iPhone 5 support. If my concerns above are addressed this is almost a 5 star app; push notifications even if the app is closed would be the icing on the cake.
Pretty, pretty good (for first week but now problematic)
by swross on 2012/04/22 12:20
In my opinion was more stable than Facebook - at first. I was new to Google + but getting into it. Twitter's working fine but not any better than the standard app. Having several of these social networking things in one app was my concern. And now I see why. No problems at first. After a few weeks no more Google Talk. Which was the most important feature. Web page "Error 404," on a blank page comes up - on both my iPhone and iPad. Also I'm still logged in to Google account but several of the other social media not. Talk was no longer on the app menu bar either. I had to look for it in G+. Obviously something's gone wrong. I'll give it another few days for an update and then delete the app. I have my doubts about Google+ in general, so do most my friends. Oh well.
Totally worth it! What all the Google apps should have been!
by Ninja_kitteh on 2011/12/22 18:58
I'd been kind of ignoring this app for a long time, but picked it up a whim during the holiday sale. Glad I did! I totally agree with others, this is definitely what the other Google apps *ought* to have been! Very nice interface, *easily* replaces several others. The one minor request I have is I'd like to see voice incorporated into the Translate, but I'm guessing that has more to do with a limitation Google is setting than it does any kind of problem on the developer's side. That's a really minor thing though. Overall really well done!
Two gaps from 5 star
by eclecticDan on 2011/11/16 10:44
This app is really very good, and it does give access to many things Google. My only two complaints are the way it handles my Google signature, which is to say when I respond to an email, it puts my response at the top of the message and my signature at the bottom, with the email I am responding to in between. The other thing is the calendar. I can see this as good enough on an iPhone, but on the iPad I've got enough real estate to do a better job on the calendar. It only has Day and Month views, and on the Month view there is no detail shown on any of the days. You have to select the day to see the detail. If those two things were fixed it is absolutely a 5 star app.
GMail & Google Docs would not display properly
by desertdog-01 on 2011/10/06 01:35
Device: iPad2, latest and greatest OS patches. The good: The app gives easy access to the various Google features. Facebook, Google Books, Google News - those worked properly. The bad: two consistent problems, one annoying and one major, resulted in uninstalling the app. The minor irritation: I preferred to view the full desktop version of Google calendar in the app. Every single time I opened the calendar I was asked whether I'd rather view a mobile version instead. There *must* be an easy way to opt out of answering this question every freaking time (no, changing the settings in the apps options did not help). The major problem: the app would never show me a full list of email when in GMail or a full list of docs in Google docs and the app would not let me scroll down. Not sure if this is a known issue, but it spoiled my primary uses of the app. It's easier to use Safari and the standard mail/calendar functions in iPad2 to deal with Google Mail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs than this app.
Constantly crashes - wait for an update or find an alternative.
by Pickles78 on 2011/10/19 06:48
The app crashes with regularity - asking me to rate the app resulted in a crash. I have been unable to enter my email without an ensuing crash, and the email is not retained after the crash. If your email is not entered, you are subjected to a pop-up stating that you have no email entered - the pop up causes a freeze. I have no idea about the functionality of the remainder of the app's claims as I have not yet been able to use any of them. Great concept, really poor execution. I have OS5 on my iPad and perhaps that is part of the problem, the app description requires OS4. If you are considering purchasing this app, I would wait until they have an update available. If refunds were a possibility on the App Store I would definitely be asking for one.
Picasa & g-chat & google voice pending to improve
by @TechGuerrero on 2013/01/22 22:56
All in all it was worth the purchase however I wish they stop bugging me with reviews after I spent money on it. Google chats, could improve whenever I find them, and Picasa needs to be more like an Apple arty tool: The photos are too small and I haven't found a way to change the photo that is to be the cover art of each album. All in all it's beneficial to have it because it helps you control mail straight from the server. However Google needs to keep on improving mobile applications, we all know they need to improve in this area. But dp they know so?m I enjoy having Google tasks, Without needing a separate client.

It stopped working two weeks ago.
by krisdogwalker on 2020/06/28 01:22
It stopped working two weeks ago. I can’t edit or add dates to my calendar.I’ve been using it for years! It’s been a lifeline for my work and appointments. I’m so bummed. 😢
Duplicate drafts driving me nuts
by Hitechprincess on 2019/04/05 19:48
I have used this app for years and loved it, recommended it to friends and colleagues, and appreciated the all-in-one usability. However since Google did away with Google+ (and I assume this is somehow related to that event), whenever I create an email or reply on this app on my iPhone I end up with several draft versions even after I've sent the final email. I have to go back, click edit for each one, and delete one by one. I deleted the app and reinstalled without success. Extremely frustrating for this longtime user and promoter of G-Whiz Plus!!! :(
I use the tasks feature
by Mtcarver on 2018/12/28 05:01
I use the tasks feature all the time. I depend on it. It’s very reliable.
G-Whiz review
by PatO'Morrill on 2017/12/16 02:32
This app worked fine for two years then Apple required an update of month ago and since then I have deleted it,added it back in and it still does not work. I was told if I got a newer phone it would probably work but my phones on two years old so I found a way to not need G-Whiz. This is a very to satisfied customer
CAUTION: AbandonWare - Functionality Crippled
by Mil_Mascaras on 2017/06/27 03:04
Caution: Developer Abandoned in Spring 2016. The “Gmail” part still works, but just about everything else is either deprecated, never connects, or just doesn’t work anymore. I bought in Dec 2015, and within 6 months ir become crippled. The first month it worked quite well. I keep looking for an update, but NO, the developer has abandoned this software since last year. Pretty much dead since Mid 2016...
Great app, made even better by new Google Mail
by thoughtful44 on 2016/11/19 20:42
I have always really liked G-whizz -- easy to manage, lots of apps easy to find. Now that Google Mail has updated itself, to something I rate as low as possible, G-while is even more appealing.
It's okay. It's a web browser. May be useful.
by crasshipster on 2016/10/07 22:05
I've just put the Facebook app back on my phone - I can't link a name in a post on this app. And it's a just a web browser, which I knew - but paid anyway. I wanted to get resource and notification hogs like the Facebook app off of my phone. I'm not on social media much - but I need quick access. Ideally this app will still be useful enough to keep.
Phone Feature - Two Thumbs Down
by Boss_Lady_Grady on 2016/10/03 06:02
I use this app primarily for the phone feature to review my call log history or the inbox feature. The feature hasn't worked in months. Via feel cheated because I paid for the app to eliminate the annoying ads on the free version. I loath deception! Get it together Google! 10/03/2016 Update: This app is still not functioning properly. Still can't check call log.
Video ads everywhere!!
by Gas'm all on 2016/09/18 19:25
Something changed recently and now in the app being bombarded by ads opening in a video window. Click close and it opens again. Making app useless. It's on the verge of being deleted. Back to google news app.
Confusing APP
by itsmetam2018 on 2016/08/17 19:18
Too much going on, too confusing. Hard to figure out what its purpose is. Didn't see any value in it.
Google rocks
by blacksatindancer912 on 2016/06/08 11:00
Although my favorite is Google stand alone app because of its wealthy data base (one needs only to type 2 key words or so) I love the all in one of Google plus!
Desktop View & Setting!
by drnbrown on 2016/03/20 20:54
This app is essential for viewing google apps in 'Desktop' mode and customizing settings!
It works
by sdickers on 2016/03/20 18:10
It keeps getting better.
Great App
by Sgt. Dave on 2016/02/27 15:49
Super Useful.
A Must Have
by Rwf1722 on 2016/02/18 03:48
This app is a must for anyone using Google Apps for EDUs on the iPad!
What the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version?
by TAbshire on 2016/02/17 13:11
I wanted to know what the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version? I noticed that the description for each version is EXACTLY alike. Thank you in advance for your time.
Getting awesome!!!
by Elysium306 on 2016/02/01 21:38
Love this app! It'd be better it REALLY runs in background, especially music when it's played from drive. Now, you play it, you leave the app, and it stops. Other than that, it's getting better and better every version! ^_^
Latest version is a downgrade
by Appppreviewer on 2015/12/16 11:08
The latest version, 4.01, is a total mess. They screwed up what was one of my favorite apps. Now it doesn't render news stories horizontally properly, doesn't remember when you are in a news story and leave the app, there is ad clutter on the top of the interface that is difficult to get rid off and they've even made it ugly. Bummer.
Great app
by zivvie on 2015/11/06 05:35
Works great!
easy to use
by Zesho on 2015/10/25 16:56
I can rely on this ap. Search function on IPAd is useful.
Too slow and too many drops
by Gdkeeth on 2015/10/25 08:52
It is just that, it is too slow and takes for ever to load on my iPad. I have switched doing email on my chromebook now because of this.
Great App
by Peetsno2 on 2015/10/23 13:36
I use this app to access all of my email accounts. It is by far the best app out there, in my opinion. There are some bugs that just cropped up in the last update with how the screen resizes itself, but the developers fix things very quickly, so I am not worried about that issue persisting.
Glitch
by Jguitar107 on 2015/10/13 17:46
The new update needs some work. Every time I go into my email, it shrinks and expands. Also when I turn the phone sideways I can't always go back to the email.
I can't open the app...
by Lady Fantastic on 2015/10/06 16:21
For some odd reason, I can't open it. I click on it and it starts to open and then it shuts down. Please help!!!
Intrusive noisy ads
by MKK0814 on 2015/10/02 11:25
It was fine...a little glitchy, but within acceptable limits...until they added noisy and intrusive ads with the most recent update. Deleted!
What happened!?!?
by counintrain on 2015/09/12 09:09
I've used the calendar feature of this app for over a year now. One day it worked great the next it's completely useless! The app crashes, gives error messages, freezes etc... It's a shame, I used this app throughout the day for my work schedule and now need to find an alternative. Not happy.
Convenient App
by SMC4Jesus on 2015/08/01 16:25
I like the convenience of this app but the navigation in some of the sub apps stinks at times. The arrows at the top of the form stop working, especially in the Google drive app.
Google G
by Riffleby on 2015/07/30 20:36
Having trouble verifying my phone number - have not been able to use my app because I have not been able to receive my SMS!
Good suite of applications
by pchemmonkey on 2015/06/03 01:22
The bundling is what drew me to this app. He price wasn't too high so as to eliminate further testing of the free version. Paid version is a little slow accessing email and some other Google apps, but overall it was worth the money. It hasn't disappointed me yet.
Horrible
by Shlomozee on 2015/05/09 19:28
I purchased the app to easily consolidate/access my gmail and google calendar information. All I get are crashes and error messages. I was just ripped off. This is the first time in a long time that I have had such an experience with an otherwise well reviewed productivity app.
Horrible... Too many logins
by dmshapiro on 2015/04/21 03:50
It repeats the login process infinitely even when I have my password correct. Not worth your money.
4 stars or 5?
by DeadboltSecurity on 2015/04/12 16:04
Used to crash and burn but pretty stable over the last year so 5 stars. I mostly use just the email but jumping into my calendar does work so it gives me more functionality over just the gmail app alone. All in all it works well for what i use it for.
A Useful App
by JKeno66 on 2015/04/05 22:29
All you need from an app is for it to deliver as promised - this one delivers.
Didn't think I would be able to use this because.....
by Google Fave on 2015/03/22 03:55
Potentially overload of applications and information but incredibly easy and useful.
Solid features
by john m shepard on 2015/03/17 22:15
Am enjoying the feature set for iPad. G-Whizz is my default email client for my iPad. It helps me stay connected with an array of apps I use regularly.
5 star
by Two by Two on 2015/03/01 02:59
🌟SUPER!!!!! LUV IT!!!🌟
Love it
by Raven Sage on 2015/02/12 06:19
I love that everything I use is all right here on one app. It's great. Thanks
Great start but needs work
by Capt. Skip on 2015/02/10 13:41
It's a great start, but needs work...
Work assistant
by TyreseWilliams on 2015/01/23 20:31
This app helps me with my work email
Awesome App!
by Elite Buttons on 2015/01/19 00:13
Awesome App!
Love this app!! , BUT
by Irisflowerp on 2015/01/16 12:00
This app is perfect, but Facebook is so slow to scroll through my feed. Everything else seems to be faster and efficient. I bought this app for all the benefits it offers, but I need my Facebook to work just as well. Can you tweak it please?? Otherwise, Awesome!!
Ok
by Tommydial on 2015/01/14 23:20
Needs a little work,but overall its better than others ive tried
Overall good App
by maji8 on 2015/01/09 16:01
I like being able to move through each of the Apps that I use most of the time in one place. There does seem to be some issues with freezing at times, but overall a good App.
Brilliant
by enkilm on 2014/12/22 02:25
Easy to use all info there when I want it What more can you ask?
Saving .pdf
by DanMcNamara on 2014/12/18 22:58
Wow...like it alot..so far....calendars are great and nice to have two google calendars usable! also, i can only attach pictures? No files? Not good..... you cannot download .pdf files, though. All you can do from what i see, is open them. I have to go back to the standard gmail app to download files.....bummer. hope you can get this fixed!
Was good
by Trickman2 on 2014/12/14 21:30
Not sure what happened but it is ultra slow now
Update has issues
by Greatwideworld on 2014/12/07 14:03
There are numerous annoyances with this update. Stop asking me to turn on the location services. The calendar hardly can be edited now.
Great app!
by Kahynes on 2014/11/26 02:07
Great app for Gmail.
Font is too small
by peters2014 on 2014/11/24 01:38
The app is very convenient, however the font size is so small that the information is barely legible and there is no way to enlarge the font within the app.
Guarantees that attachments get through
by Yodamark on 2014/11/20 20:42
When Apple mail fails, this app succeeds in making sure attachments are forwarded. Having Google as our firm's email provider, this app is a must have. Still a bit slow at times, thus the four stars.
Very fine program
by Gfmichaels on 2014/11/18 13:20
I use it mainly for easy gmail and google calendar access on my iPhone.
Efficient!
by chileylimon on 2014/11/17 17:23
Agree with the review that app needs some tweaks for calendar. Love how one app gives me flexibility to access almost all my Google apps. Groups requires me to select the "desktop" version so I can toggle between my domain's groups & groups I follow. Annoying. Otherwise, superb app. Worth the price.
Works.
by TheTonyCheng on 2014/11/16 13:34
Cool. Works. Like it.
Idiotic design
by Rkg12331 on 2014/11/14 23:29
Facebook is too complex to use. Too many features for nothing.
Great app
by Fcodispoti on 2014/11/14 18:48
Easy to use. Would like to see options for adding your own tabs like for LinkedIn
Needs a few tweaks
by PJDenver on 2014/11/14 17:06
I've been using this app for a while and it's a very convenient way to move between Google apps from a central location. I do have two complaints, however. (1) Why can't Chrome be included as one of the navigation choices? (2) The Calendar function does not have a way to set a reminder for a newly added appointment or event. To set a reminder you have to go into the native Google calendar that you can only get to by following a link at the bottom of the calendar page. And when you do this you get a warning that using this version, rather than the mobile version, will reduce functionality. Why can't you just make the Google native calendar, which folks use on their desktop, the main supported calendar within the app?
Good but could be great
by kiwabound on 2014/10/28 20:19
I really wish it remembered my preference to view my primary email
Almost
by LDYinNH on 2014/10/20 14:30
I bought the "plus" version a couple of years ago and have used it every day since. I like the format and UI, but lately, it takes soooo long time for my email to load. Too long. Will set the app aside and use another app until this gets fixed. Soon, I hope. Update Oct 2014: Came back to retry. App seems to take longer than ever to load, and now asks for my location EVERY time.
Great, but buggy with the iOS upgrade
by Kenteman on 2014/10/16 12:49
Works great, but with the IOS 8 upgrade it crashes when you attach a file to Gmail. :(
Me likes it!
by AkimboCat on 2014/10/12 22:46
Sluggish app on ios7 And I think you will, too. Thanks for the app, Google! Okay, Yopyopyop...still happy.
Bought wrong app
by Moodygirl150 on 2014/10/01 22:47
I own iPhone 5 given as gift wanted to download google play store thought this was it don't want this app could I have my money refunded to me please wanted store app with Google. Can you help me.
Crashes!
by that1chikk on 2014/10/01 02:09
This app is unstable and crashes over and over. You can't post to Facebook without having to log in. When you log in the app tells you you already authorized Facebook but will not let you post. The transition between the other apps (Pintrest, Instagram, Gmail,etc) is not seamless. I am uninstalling this app because it is easier to just do without it.
Review
by pwdercat on 2014/09/22 00:26
Does what it's supposed to.
Wish list
by Trade warrior on 2014/09/21 22:54
Good but would like more if two more features existed: (1) automatically open on today's date and (2) display the start and stop time for each event in "day" mode.
Saves Space
by Christibug on 2014/09/11 19:38
I really love this app for mobile devices without a lot of storage space for multiple apps. The built in apps work very well. It is worth the money to get the full feature version.
Prefer this to the Gmail app
by FrodoJRR on 2014/09/05 02:45
I actually prefer this to the actual Gmail app. It offers so much more, and works. 'Nuff said, I guess.
Mike's google plus review
by missilemikeD on 2014/08/31 04:48
Why would any normal person not use this superb app? I have experienced true joy with the easy connections to various programs and websites, that is exactly why I challenge the world to try and surpass this fantastic app.
Great app
by Trixie in TN on 2014/08/25 17:09
Great app, no issues, best shared calendar
Plug me-in

At my fingers
by Irmin1964 on 2014/08/04 16:08
Love having everything there on one screen. App is easy to use. Great job! Worth the investment.
This us a very versatile app
by Harry s. cpa on 2014/07/26 13:43
I like that many Google apps are so easily integrated. It is convenient to have them dell in one place.
Great app for Apple /Google user
by TM Wheeler on 2014/07/22 08:04
I love my google apps and G whiz allows me to easily move between several of my favorite google applications while on my ipad. It is very helpful for accessing gmail, google calendar, google groups, and other apps. For a old school PC user it makes using the google tools on the ipad easy.
Great App
by Escarabajo on 2014/07/13 09:56
App gives a great alternative to be able to work in Google Mail without having to use "conversation view" and a one stop shop for my google apps.
Great app
by Rshimp on 2014/07/08 16:04
This is awesome! Took the place of five separate apps on my phone! The only problem is it crashes frequently.
Great!
by Bbobbbbbbbbbbbbb on 2014/07/08 02:11
It is very handy to check email and documents from my phone or iPad. I use it a lot.
Nice App, when it works
by Blazian5 on 2014/07/07 04:56
Lots of potential, but program frequently closes unexpectedly. No audio on Facebook videos. When clicking on a link, app often shuts down.
Great app, but minor buggy issues
by MsSol on 2014/07/05 23:17
Love being able to use Gmail and GoogleCalendar in one place, so much better than Apple software's syncing for e-mail. Like how emails can be organized in Gmail folders too. Update 7/05: new updates have been applied, and so far so good - less buggy than before.
Great way to combine Google services
by Biochem2 on 2014/07/04 15:26
Mostly use it for gmail but it can do do much more!
Great program, I bought the expanded version
by Wfward on 2014/07/04 11:25
I like how it works, it's reliable, doesn't crash, allows me to read all google stuff (email, voice, calendar, etc.) and each one has both the desktop and web versions so I can choose how the information is displayed. Good job folks!
Pretty useful doing multiple task
by Dodobird0726 on 2014/07/03 21:47
I dont like how the things are arranged but i still like how i could do multiple things on it
Great all around app

Just like a PC

Good link to Outlook and calendar.

Like the ease of staying in touch with my various calendars. Nice, simple, visual app. Thx!
I did love this app but....
by Macgonzo77 on 2014/06/09 04:27
When I first started to use this app I loved it, after the last two updates this app now freezes on a daily basis. Please fix these issues as I would love to continue using this app.
The only app I care about
by Gwhizz does it all. Ish on 2014/06/08 00:43
Makes an iPad almost worth owning. Now let's get gmail component up to speed. a year or two later, this is still the truth. i'd love to see cloudmagic become the provider of the gmail experience, which remains the weakest link in an otherwise excellent app.
Great app, use every day!
by Birdmom9726 on 2014/06/03 20:43
I love the convenience of having most everything I need in one app - I love it.
Easy to use!
by worthylotus on 2014/05/29 19:05
Love the ease of use & multi-functionality of this app!!
Not bad
by Anec on 2014/05/28 17:23
Works as it should. Still getting adverts and recommendation apps. Don't care for that. It's a daily tool but still needs some work for spreadsheet editing.
Said by others, my experience, too
by DrKvP on 2014/05/27 04:18
Good app, good design, a little buggy at times, but an excellent collection of Google apps in one place. Best aggregator I've seen for that purpose.
nice app
by Ice2gofirst on 2014/05/24 14:46
I love having all the main areas of my online lifecycle in one place. Ive actually did away with a few of the other app to save space.
Great

Great that you can view other calendar that's shared to you
Great organization, simple to use!

No problems using. Love the updated features.

Ok
by Angelina h on 2014/05/20 23:10
I liked this app before they placed an ad section over the tool bar for gmail. Now I can't delete or clean out my inbox, nor perform other operations. Clear design flaw. I will uninstall and get the app directly from gmail instead.
Getting awesome!!!
by Elysium306 on 2016/02/01 21:38
Love this app! It'd be better it REALLY runs in background, especially music when it's played from drive. Now, you play it, you leave the app, and it stops. Other than that, it's getting better and better every version! ^_^

This app worked fine for two years then Apple required an update of month ago and since then I have deleted it,added it back in and it still does not work.

Something changed recently and now in the app being bombarded by ads opening in a video window. Click close and it opens again. Making app useless. It's on the verge of being deleted. Back to google news app.
It stopped working two weeks ago.

It stopped working two weeks ago. I can’t edit or add dates to my calendar.I’ve been using it for years! It’s been a lifeline for my work and appointments. I’m so bummed. 😢
Chopped Talk
by Nuts-n-Bolts on 2012/01/08 21:31
I like using the IM feature in gmail, and was excited to have it on my phone. "Talk" works great if you keep it on screen/active, but when notified you have a response to a conversation, 9 out of 10 times the conv stream is gone - Gwiz prompts you to "Refresh" and it does not. You end up with just one entry in the field, and if you forgot what the conversation was about you're left with having to go into your gmail and pull up the old part of the conv in Chats, or sometimes the old conv is in your inbox with the update. This is the only thorn for me, and I hope it gets sorted. Otherwise this app encompasses everything in gmail. Nice to have access to my Documents and (online) Picassa albums. Links you click on in this app keep you within the app, this is good, but it can get a little cramped on screen, and feels slow at times. These problems were not enough to keep me from buying the full version - after using the light version.
What the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version?
by TAbshire on 2016/02/17 13:11
I wanted to know what the difference between the PLUS version $2.99 & the $0.99 version? I noticed that the description for each version is EXACTLY alike. Thank you in advance for your time.
Confusing APP
by itsmetam2018 on 2016/08/17 19:18
Too much going on, too confusing. Hard to figure out what its purpose is. Didn't see any value in it.
A Must Have
by Rwf1722 on 2016/02/18 03:48
This app is a must for anyone using Google Apps for EDUs on the iPad!
Great App
by Sgt. Dave on 2016/02/27 15:49
Super Useful.
This is for the social media driven person who can't act till all is been checked updated and.....
by ToMMyBoI508 on 2011/12/14 18:48
As one of the many, who is caught up, or should I dare to say is prompted. Arise from slumber to rush to the iPad, iPhone, laptop, or even desktop. Knowing that there will be dozens of emails notification and pokes and tag and can't forget tweets. The averaged American or should I say person in general is ruled by social media. This app I one of my go to apps when I have a short time to be jumping from app to app. There is everything and anything you would need to get threw your day just here all in this one app. I use this as a way to sum up the average amount of who what when and why of the day is sent to me. Or about me. This world is faster becoming more computer based. Then personal based. Everything a person or personal assistant would do is here at the tap of one app. Why pay to have some one do it for you when it can just be brought to one easily learned app. I'm far from saying don't go on your soul Facebook app twitter app and so on but this will cut the am update time in second. This is an app I have given my self as a thank god it all there and I don't have to keep jumping out and into other apps. If you are a social media driven person that has to have it all there in one app this is the app for you. loves it !!!!
Glitchy Reader
by Ghjklpoi on 2012/01/24 03:12
Seemed fine when I "test drove" the free version, but I upgraded to the paid app and suddenly the settings were different. I bought the app primarily for Reader (although I use a lot of google apps so I figured I would eventually try the others). I finally figured out that the free app had defaulted to "Desktop Look" for Reader and I changed the paid app settings to match. Now it looked the way I wanted, but the functionality was glitchy. It's nearly impossible to "click" the nav pane (on left) in the magical "right" way that the app seems to want. As a result, I find it nearly impossible to change to a different feed. Sometimes the reading pane (right side) is really finicky as well and you can only scroll if your finger is just on top of the scroll bar, which is annoying. I've closed the app, uninstalled and reinstalled several times, retried the free version, updated my OS, everything I can think of to resolve the issue to no avail. The reading pane functionality may have been improved by one of those things, but being largely unable to switch feeds makes that irrelevant. I guess I must not have tested the free version long enough, because this app (for Reader) has become pointless.
Was a great program 4-5 star
by GW1 on 2011/08/07 17:01
This is a re-review of the program. The last update seems to have fixed the image display issue with the e-mail. The program is still a little unstable when changing from e-mail to web and back. I am sure future updates will address the issue. I would give the program a 5 star if the developer would comment on report bugs. Even if it was a form letter. Prior review I have been using the program for quite sometime. The program worked very well and I used it for reading my e-mail over other programs. The last upgrade was a actual downgrade. I no longer can display images. The show images button does not work. I have reinstalled the program several times with no results. I contacted the developers of the program with no response. Perhaps when people stop buying the program they will provide a fix. For now, I would stay away from this program.
Can NOT open attachments in other Apps...major problem for me...
by Hector_C on 2012/04/02 11:54
These comments are for the paid version. Browser like functionality for Gmail use which is nice...you can 'send from' your different email accounts directly from G-Whizz. This is Google's mobile web page, and the GWHIZZ app is only behaving like a browser I believe, so no real points for G-Whizz on that one. Major problem is if you need to open an attachment in another app...like Dropbox, DocstoGo, Sugarsync or any other (like Sign'nSend to sign a document and send back out with you signature, or any other to markup your attached file and send back out). You canNOT do this with G-Whizz. To be FAIR you can 'Open in Safari' and Safari allows you to 'Open in...' another app....BUT WHY PAY for an App when Safari will do ALL of the Mail features for free ? This extra step and mis-use of resources is even worse. HOPE YOU CAN FIX this 'Open in...' missing feature soon...it's a big one to me and probably other users! PS - Cannot save documents in Google Docs either. Regarding Google Docs, a complimentary desktop (pc, mac, linux) application would make sense to help sync or upload/download folders/files...this one is a wish list because there are a couple of individual programs out there to do this. It's just that if you're promoting app as an "end all" type of solution to work with Google, this is a major issue for Google Docs users...maybe make it an inapp option/purchase for those who need it.
Needs a few changes
by Prncs522 on 2013/09/14 04:02
Where are G Chats? I'd like to have access to my contacts and be able to chat with them. Also, why do I have to enter my password EVERY time I want to log in? I used to be able to sign in endlessly without having to enter my password. Really frustrating and I'm not sure the push notifications work properly. I'd like to have a number of emails that includes all my filters and not just my inbox. Finally, PLEASE update the entry format for calendar events. Contrary to what the app dictates, events start and end at times that are not on the quarter-hour. Resolving these issues, I would be a much happier user. New update has none of my suggestions...also, to add to the issue, I've opened the app twice and had it crash both times. Additionally, I've had a label that indicates and unread email, but cannot find the email!! What's th deal?!?!
Very useful, but with some glitches that should be fixed
by Michael Cregge on 2012/02/17 11:06
I really like the capability to go from gmail to Facebook to Twitter to reader and other Google apps, but there seems to be some problem that causes occasionally long delays when going to Facebook. Perhaps it is the fault of Facebook, but there are no similar delays encountered when viewing the news feed from the Facebook app for iPad or from Safari. Also, i don't know how to use G-Whiz to continue a Google Voice text conversation. There is a button for starting a text message or place a call, but I don't know how to continue a conversation in progress. So this is an application with real potential. I would prefer to use an application like this to using individual apps, but more work needs to be done. I will be looking for updates resolving the issues I described.
Needs a few tweaks
by PJDenver on 2014/11/14 17:06
I've been using this app for a while and it's a very convenient way to move between Google apps from a central location. I do have two complaints, however. (1) Why can't Chrome be included as one of the navigation choices? (2) The Calendar function does not have a way to set a reminder for a newly added appointment or event. To set a reminder you have to go into the native Google calendar that you can only get to by following a link at the bottom of the calendar page. And when you do this you get a warning that using this version, rather than the mobile version, will reduce functionality. Why can't you just make the Google native calendar, which folks use on their desktop, the main supported calendar within the app?
Not bad so far for a browser with the main google app
by scadarick on 2011/12/18 01:34
Basically this google apps browser is great for use with my iPad 2, since everything just about revolves around these apps because of iPad, it seemed like a very useful app so far. Only had 1 problem with it it closing after I open it then choose the out selection icon for bookmarks, email and so on. If I don't choose something, it just closes. At the moment I am going to say close and not crash because I am not sure it's by design or it is a crash, we shall see in future releases. But for my first go at, very impressed after signing n to everything, making a few tweaks, I must sy it's a very nice app for my collection and maybe daily use, got dolphin HD, so it's hard to change...will see. Nice work though! Scadarick
Very Handy
by paulish on 2010/05/31 10:34
This app does everything it says it will and a bit more. The author is amazingly quick to respond to support queries, replying to each of my requests within minutes (though I suppose I may not have found this to be the case if I'd happened to have e-mailed him while he was asleep). I've put the icon for G-Whiz on my dock in place of the one that starts Apple's e-mail app because the G-Mail (and Google Apps mail) interface in G-Whiz is better than Apple's. The only thing missing, as far as I'm concerned, is Google Wave, but the author says he plans to add it as soon as Wave becomes less of a moving target (hmm, not the best fitting metaphor I've ever used--waves should always move, except, I guess, for standing waves). That not enough to get me to withhold a star though.
Doesn't deliver!
by 1fastKAR on 2013/03/21 23:03
The description sounded fantastic so I jumped in. Sadly this app is no different than the FREE Gmail app... you're still confined to the limited and crappy half-screen view of your email that Google sticks you with (vs the full screen view from the built in Mail app). Granted, you can at least view an emulated rendering of the full Gsnail web site, if you can tolerate the lag. And the idea of accessing other Google services is limited. Most are limited functionality and you still cannot use Google Talk nor Video conferencing. Another complaint is the inability to send email attachments to other INSTALLED applications, like Adobe Acrobat for instance in case, God forbid you want to print or save something (which, again, isn't a problem in the default Mail app). Finally, the app crashes constantly. Save your money and install Gmail. It's pathetic as a mail client, but at least it's free and does give you somewhat more control in managing your email.
Simple. Reliable. Comprehensive
by cheetahbait on 2013/03/11 03:23
If you want to open one app and toggle between calendar, email, tasks, google drive that doesn't try to reinvent the google experience this is a excellent choice. You can customize the menu at the bottom which has made it my most valuable app.. I have installed the new gdrive and gmail and it takes forever to load on my OG iPad. While its no secret that Google tries to be everything to everyone and ends being mostly mediocre this app simply delivers Googles non remarkable product in a no nonsense straight forward manner. I expected Gwhiz to crash with its range of function but it has been very dependable unlike some many apps released that shouldn't due to poor reliability.
Good app
by MYUPDATESUCKED on 2011/12/28 16:26
I only give this app 4 stars due to a couple small things I don't care for. First thing, sometimes when your on talk, it tells you there are no contacts to display and when you type a name into search it just keeps spinning and thinking without a result. Second, the Facebook app is frustrating due to, when clicking on a thread or picture, instead of going back to where you were, you are forced to start at the top of the news feed. I got this app mainly for the talk feature, and besides the occasional "No contacts to display", I am satisfied with this app. I paid $.99 for it, witch I thought was a much better price than the $2.99 it was originally listed at. The $2.99 was too much just for getting rid of adds.
Very handy with a few wish list items
by BikeBookBread on 2011/07/18 02:58
I love the convenience of all of my Google apps in one place, however, there are things that could be improved: The browser function is almost useless. When you click on a link in either a gmail message or in blog feed (and perhaps other applications that I don't use) the "browser" function does not load pages as expected. For example, if I am reading a blog post or LiveJournal entry in Reader, and I click to comment within Browser, nothing happens, so I have to leave the app and go to the actual webpage in Safari to make a comment, negating the "all in one place" ease of the app. I need to be able to see contacts in e-mail. Unless I can't find it, there is no directory of contacts. Yes, if you know the email address or name of the person to whom you are sending, great, you type it and it populates. However, there are times when I need to see the list of contacts to trigger my memory and find the person I wish to send my message to. It would be nice to have a Blogger button so one could post from within the app. All-in-all, it is a nice app and would recommend.
Almost perfect... Will change rating if fixed...
by FixMyApps on 2011/10/19 03:52
This is a pretty solid app. Generally awesome. Three things keeping it from being five stars instead of three: It keeps losing connection to gchat... I would like it to keep me "always online" so I get push notifications when anyone tries to contact me... and it tries so hard. But it doesn't always keep me on and I will often open the app up from the background to find it is trying to reconnect to a network it shouldn't have lost a connection to. Second: it doesn't recognize phone numbers or email addresses. Can't click on them. Third: it should push mail. It shocks me that this isn't even an option. I'm tired of using active exchange for push notifications only to use the epic new unlock thing from ios5 to go to directly to the email in the native mail app, read it there because it was so fast to access that way, then switch apps and navigate to that message in order to reply properly using all of gmail mobile's convenient and streamlined features... These are things I kinda expected it would do. I would return it, but I am too lazy. I just wish they would fix it, because I really do like how the app works.
Good but can improve
by kinanaskomitin on 2012/06/22 14:07
I like this app to check my Gmail account. It is more friendly than the app the ipad comes with, specially when you try to delete messages. It also shows the labels and filters I have created in Gmail, which helps me a lot to prioritize what I am going to read first. I also like the fact that it recognizes all my address book so it makes it easier to send emails. However, the browser doesn't work well: if I try to open a link from an email, or open an attachment (pictures, pdfs) it seems it tries to open the browser but does nothing, I get a blank screen. I have to use other apps for that. Kinda of dissapointing and very inconvenient. They should sell the app for less $ to make the price worth the quality of the product.
Very Google
by NovaMojo on 2012/05/07 15:37
I give 4 stars just because there is always room for improvement. The app is perfect for getting to all things google in one spot. I use it all the time, I put it on the dock. Looks and acts just like Google the in a browser which many people probably think is the smart way to design it, because everyone will know exactly how to use it, it's hard to argue against that but... I'm a designer I'd like to see a Flipboard or Pulse-like interface, at least an app that's made for a touchscreen interface. It's the tail wagging the dog, but the reality is it's going to be touchscreen, tablet/phone world. Give me big buttons for my fingers to hit easy. Do that and I'll probably give you 4 stars because it's not like the old google....
Meh
by ChrisInYpsi on 2010/05/07 00:02
It's basically a stand alone web browser that integrates all the Google mobile web pages. No new content that you can't already get through Safari. Mildly handy to have all Google's sites integrated, but I was hoping for something unique. The biggest dissapointment for me is the lack of Tasks on the iPad. Tasks is currently not available on the iPad for some reason. This seems to be a Google issue since it isn't working in Safari or this app. But since Tasks is listed as one of the 18 Google services accessible thourgh this G-Wizz app I thought maybe this developer had designed a work around. No such luck - Tasks does not work in this app either (on the iPad). Major bummer. The developer might want to make a note of this on the App Store description so other iPad user's aren't misled.
Doc support needs work
by Dtlonderee on 2011/05/04 20:26
This app functions well for the most part, but needs major help in the Google Docs area. I found the same problems with this app as I did with Safari ... using a bluetooth keyboard there are some serious bugs in typing text. These seriously affect the ability to edit docs. Also, there is no way to share a document unless you choose to use the desktop version, which doesn't integrate well with iOS. I also found that the settings options were very limited. Could not find a way to force this app to fetch new mail. I would hear a notification in my native mail app and then would have to refresh my inbox to see new messages. If you get it while it's on sale, it's worth it. If not, wait for it to go on sale again.
Soooo helpful, but...
by Starlitcitygirl on 2011/11/23 15:42
This is a great app for someone who operates entirely through gmail and google products. I only wish you could access docs and the calendar while offline, if you pull up a certain doc in advance and leave it open so it can be viewed without Internet, or if you just want to look at your calendar and not save it. Also, the desktop versions are much better than the mobile versions, and they seem to work fine despite warnings that they won't. I just like how the desktop calendar is laid out, and you can't archive google voice messages in the mobile version. But overall, great app! I love keeping all of my google stuff in one place!
Gee Wiz
by Google Apps Browser on 2012/12/27 09:05
I absolutely love this app because I am a visually impaired user and there really isn't much out there for us like that, but I FOUND 1 that actuallly works so far and I am truely thankful, because all of those other apps were very difficult to use and navigate, just to sign in was a pain to do! This app is not only good for sighted users but it is also good for us blind users as well! Thank you! This app is great! To the people who made this app, if you can continue revolutionizing apps! that would be great for my friends and I! Most of the people are blind and they will love this app as much as I do! Thank you once again guys! I love this app!
How is this different than using the google website in safari?
by sloss88 on 2012/01/01 23:10
Somehow I expected this to be based on the google API to be able to interface with your google data, docs, contacts, etc.... I mean typically when you charge 3 to 10 dollars for an app you're implying that you did some serious development right? Instead it is a bunch of laggy bookmarks to each individual google app on their website that displays in a browser window without back buttons. And it manages to crash every other time I try to load a new page or type something in. Was looking for an app for to use google docs with, for which this is genuinely worthless. Tasks was too buggy. And the second time checking gmail i got a popup advert from the developer? No thanks. Judging by the other glowing reviews I guess I just don't get it? Maybe I am using the internets wrong?
Think twice
by rbinz on 2011/09/26 05:06
I bought this app for only one use, to use it as a gateway to open and edit my google docs, spreadsheets primarily. This portion of the app has no features of it's own, it is nothing more than a new skin for safari. Well it works worse than safari alone as when I hit the link for app view in the spreadsheet I get an error this feature was not supported yet and there was no way to clear the message so I was forced to reboot the iPad. As I looked at this app in more detail it is not much more than the free google app, especially when you hit the apps button inside google app, nearly the same GUI. So I say think twice, this app does not build upon the native access but a new GUI / skin for efforts you already have, maybe the skin is worth the price for you but this app had zero return on my expense.
To buy or not to buy...
by CubeIt2010 on 2011/07/19 03:23
I love my Google apps... We are a family of 5 and we all have our own calendars... I have found it difficult integrate all of our calendars into the iPad 2 included app. With this app it looks just like it does on my desktop... My Google Voice works, I have access to all of my email, contacts, etc. Plus any of the other Google apps that I like and use so much... This app should be listed as a "MUST HAVE" Well worth far more than what they charge... This app will be on every iPad that each member of my family has... I just learned that I can't scroll down in my emails... This is a problem... I will update as it becomes available... To date the only problem that I've found is that you can't scroll in desktop mode... :-/
I love this app, but.......
by Mitchell Edwards on 2012/09/20 09:05
I love this app! I can get so many things done in one place but....... I can't stand how it constantly gives me a pop up message every time I want to view the calendar in desktop view rather than mobile view on the iPad. I haven't had any problem running the calendar in the desktop view, so I don't see why I have to clear the message every time, then deal with having the constant reminder at the top saying, "having trouble viewing the calendar, switch to mobile view." Perhaps something could be done about this but I will cope with it because of the rest of the features.
Has potential...
by Luhmann on 2010/05/21 06:49
Currently, this app is a little worse than using Safari. If you know how to add items to your bookmarks bar in Safari, and how to turn on the setting that makes the bar always visible, Safari can do evereything this can do, and more. Since I can't access my bookmarklets, I can't use Instapaper, readability, evernote, delicious, Twitter, or other services I use via bookmarklets in Safari. The program also does not consistently load the English / US version of for each of the Google sites, despite having set that as the default in the preferences. However, I like the idea of a dedicated Google app browser, and if some additional functions were added, like push notifications and Instapaper support, it might turn into something nice. As it is, I feel I wasted my money...
BEWARE, App no longer under development
by tcatnat on 2013/02/10 01:58
Although the app works and is functional I didn't realize it had not been updated since 2011; this obviously means no support for iPhone 5 screen size. I foolishly purchased this based on all the glowing reviews and the fact that it was an all encompassing Google app. After realizing there was no iPhone 5 screen size support I did some searching and found many comments that the developer has been none responsive to requests for support due to app crashing and slow load times on iOS 6. I have not experienced slow load times but am really frustrated that there's no iPhone 5 support. If my concerns above are addressed this is almost a 5 star app; push notifications even if the app is closed would be the icing on the cake.
Pretty, pretty good (for first week but now problematic)
by swross on 2012/04/22 12:20
In my opinion was more stable than Facebook - at first. I was new to Google + but getting into it. Twitter's working fine but not any better than the standard app. Having several of these social networking things in one app was my concern. And now I see why. No problems at first. After a few weeks no more Google Talk. Which was the most important feature. Web page "Error 404," on a blank page comes up - on both my iPhone and iPad. Also I'm still logged in to Google account but several of the other social media not. Talk was no longer on the app menu bar either. I had to look for it in G+. Obviously something's gone wrong. I'll give it another few days for an update and then delete the app. I have my doubts about Google+ in general, so do most my friends. Oh well.
Totally worth it! What all the Google apps should have been!
by Ninja_kitteh on 2011/12/22 18:58
I'd been kind of ignoring this app for a long time, but picked it up a whim during the holiday sale. Glad I did! I totally agree with others, this is definitely what the other Google apps *ought* to have been! Very nice interface, *easily* replaces several others. The one minor request I have is I'd like to see voice incorporated into the Translate, but I'm guessing that has more to do with a limitation Google is setting than it does any kind of problem on the developer's side. That's a really minor thing though. Overall really well done!
Two gaps from 5 star
by eclecticDan on 2011/11/16 10:44
This app is really very good, and it does give access to many things Google. My only two complaints are the way it handles my Google signature, which is to say when I respond to an email, it puts my response at the top of the message and my signature at the bottom, with the email I am responding to in between. The other thing is the calendar. I can see this as good enough on an iPhone, but on the iPad I've got enough real estate to do a better job on the calendar. It only has Day and Month views, and on the Month view there is no detail shown on any of the days. You have to select the day to see the detail. If those two things were fixed it is absolutely a 5 star app.
GMail & Google Docs would not display properly
by desertdog-01 on 2011/10/06 01:35
Device: iPad2, latest and greatest OS patches. The good: The app gives easy access to the various Google features. Facebook, Google Books, Google News - those worked properly. The bad: two consistent problems, one annoying and one major, resulted in uninstalling the app. The minor irritation: I preferred to view the full desktop version of Google calendar in the app. Every single time I opened the calendar I was asked whether I'd rather view a mobile version instead. There *must* be an easy way to opt out of answering this question every freaking time (no, changing the settings in the apps options did not help). The major problem: the app would never show me a full list of email when in GMail or a full list of docs in Google docs and the app would not let me scroll down. Not sure if this is a known issue, but it spoiled my primary uses of the app. It's easier to use Safari and the standard mail/calendar functions in iPad2 to deal with Google Mail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs than this app.
Constantly crashes - wait for an update or find an alternative.
by Pickles78 on 2011/10/19 06:48
The app crashes with regularity - asking me to rate the app resulted in a crash. I have been unable to enter my email without an ensuing crash, and the email is not retained after the crash. If your email is not entered, you are subjected to a pop-up stating that you have no email entered - the pop up causes a freeze. I have no idea about the functionality of the remainder of the app's claims as I have not yet been able to use any of them. Great concept, really poor execution. I have OS5 on my iPad and perhaps that is part of the problem, the app description requires OS4. If you are considering purchasing this app, I would wait until they have an update available. If refunds were a possibility on the App Store I would definitely be asking for one.
Picasa & g-chat & google voice pending to improve
by @TechGuerrero on 2013/01/22 22:56
All in all it was worth the purchase however I wish they stop bugging me with reviews after I spent money on it. Google chats, could improve whenever I find them, and Picasa needs to be more like an Apple arty tool: The photos are too small and I haven't found a way to change the photo that is to be the cover art of each album. All in all it's beneficial to have it because it helps you control mail straight from the server. However Google needs to keep on improving mobile applications, we all know they need to improve in this area. But dp they know so?m I enjoy having Google tasks, Without needing a separate client.
