Double-tap selection scrolling is broken on iPhone SE
by Farhanible on 2019/02/16 04:57
The double-tap selection scrolling is broken on iPhone SE. The scrolling speed for minute movements of the cursor is so fast that it makes the feature quite literally unusable. The app very frequently displays incorrect formatting for pasted text. These formatting anomalies are visible once the email is sent and then viewed in a web-browser. It just seems like the QA hard passed on testing this app.
Inbox is a lot better
by markahco78 on 2019/02/16 02:43
Please add the Trips feature from google Inbox. What a simple and awesome feature. Inbox is awesome. Please save it, or at least bring over more of the functionality to gmail.

Sent emails
by SuziCap on 2019/02/15 19:29
Once you reply to an email, the whole thread goes into ‘sent’ file and you can no longer see the email, it should continue to be in the inbox, it’s so annoying because it’s hard to find and file if need be. This needs to be fixed!
Very basic
by Cybersea on 2019/02/15 18:56
This is a decent email client, but that’s the best I can say. I went back to Gmail after discovering that Inbox is ending. I really loved Inbox, and I’m SO DISAPPOINTED that they are getting rid of it without updating the Gmail client significantly with the major featured that Inbox had. This is just a list of emails from all addresses just jumbled together with NO organization at all. Do yourself a favor and check out Spark. Best so far. Also - and I guess this is an iOS interaction issue - it replaces my apostrophes with question marks. No other email client does that, and it’s REALLY annoying. Sorry Gmail. You’ve gotta step it up.
Huge Leap Forward
by Evan Collins on 2019/02/15 16:09
The latest redesigned Gmail is a massive improvement over the previous version. I loved Inbox and am happy to see some of my favorite features integrated neatly into Gmail. The unified inbox feature with easy media access is amazing. Awesome, thank you!
Liked INBOX more
by Vikky0201 on 2019/02/15 15:38
I liked how the inbox app works. Not just the snooze or nudge but overall on showing the payments, travel info and more. Sad to know inbox is out.
Decent app
by MB1742 on 2019/02/15 13:53
The Gmail app is still the best way to manage stars and labels on your messages, but it lacks a lot of basic features found in other apps. Swipe options need to be customizable. All Inboxes should not be limited to Everything; it should also show Starred and Unread.
Doesn’t integrate easily with other apps
by NickiyyyG on 2019/02/15 12:49
The gmail app limits the sources of attachments to basically your camera roll and google drive. That’s nice, but I use a lot of other apps google.
Nice look

Nice look but we still have to delete one by one uggggggggg
Not Receiving e-mails

Shows Ads in Your Inbox
by FGfsfhifsvu on 2019/02/15 05:00
They literally put ads above your emails in the latest update. This is ridiculous. I’ll be finding a new email app.

I get enough spam without adds from my mail app
by cosmo132 on 2019/02/15 03:19
The adds are the dumbest idea ever! Deleted the app. I already work hard to remove spam from my email why would I want an app that introduces additional advertising for stuff I don’t want? Or even for stuff I do want?
Update on 2-6-19 is terrible
by birdfeathers on 2019/02/14 23:04
The app now looks like your web login, but you cannot log out and can no longer switch easily between google accounts! Talk about non-functional. Don’t update!!!
Wow
by Jriddle_7622093 on 2019/02/14 22:39
It’s horrible i can’t see any of my emails. i have to delete the app and then download it again to see my emails.
Inbox has more features
by Ewalczuk on 2019/02/14 22:04
Too bad Inbox is going away. I’ll miss “Trips”, “Finance” and “Purchases” labels/features. Any way you could add them to Gmail?? It would be greatly appreciated!
I want INBOX app NOT Gmail!!!
by Kugirl07 on 2019/02/14 21:59
I have never liked the Gmail app. Inbox does exactly what I want my email to do. I love the bundling functionality and the ability to move multiple messages with one swipe. I especially love the bundling with the trip and purchases and that I can see just new messages within a certain label and don’t have to view AGAIN the ones I have saved unless I search for them specifically. Please do not force me to use the Gmail app! Please, please keep INBOX alive!!!
Works great beyond freezes
by apreut on 2019/02/14 18:51
Like the Gmail app for iPhone XR in its layout and functions but it freezes up almost three times a week which is annoying.
No connection bar shows after refresh everytime on v5.0.190113
by Amar Mak on 2019/02/14 17:26
The app is pretty simple and easy to use with simultaneous mail delivery on multiple signed in devices. It automatically sorts emails into categories like social, promotions, etc and filters spam. There were crashes for the app while adding attachments from recently added attachments list, but not sure if it is fixed in this version.
Get with the times
by dyllly3423 on 2019/02/14 17:26
One should be able to swipe right to mark an email read. It’s pretty much an industry standard these days. Even the terrible Blackberry email app I have to use for work has this function. Software engineers: I know this is easy to change, please fix
This app doesn’t work
by the-realness on 2019/02/14 16:17
I got the app thinking that it would help me, but it doesn’t work at all. I never received any of the emails sent to me for work
Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke!
by jspot69 on 2019/02/14 14:52
You guys obviously did not listen to your customers. I loved the old app, but you changed it. You fixed something that didn’t need to be fixed! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I’m ready to close my account after 10 years and go to another provider that “keeps it simple and easy to use”.
Great app with some glaring holes
by jheiselman on 2019/02/14 13:31
The app works great. It's far more responsive than the web site and I like it much better than the Apple Mail app. However, I can't control whether or not emails are classified as Important or not. The functionality is there in the Android app, but missing here. And now that I can't manage notifications based on Labels anymore, it's a huge issue. If I select Important only, I get stuff I don't want and miss stuff I do want since I can't train it. If I select High Priority, it seems to rely on the sender setting that flag. If I select everything, we'll, then it's just way too much. Having to find and use a computer to manage this is not OK in this day and age.

Horrible for iPhones
by Emma23Stanley on 2019/02/14 06:28
I switched to gmail from my yahoo. Took me for ever to switch over all my accounts and all the other places and people that had my old email address to my new gmail and there are still a lot more. I don’t have access to a desktop, but the gmail app had good reviews, but didn’t take long to find out that you can’t access your contacts while in your inbox or sending and it won’t let you add new contacts from a recently received email and that’s just a start to the problems I had. I spent even more time googling my problems to see if there was a way to fix it. From what I read the android version works great and doesn’t have any problems it’s just the version for iOS that everyone seemed to have the same complaints. So now I have to go research other email apps that support gmail to make sure they have the same time. Hopefully they make a update to fix it because I liked most of the other features and would like to use it. Again every comment or review I read who had androids didn’t have those problems so it just seems the iOS version needs a little work
Notification sound
by nirvana84jcw on 2019/02/14 03:11
Was not able to quickly and easily find a way to change the default notification sound in the app setting on my iPhone XS.
No multitasking
by zulu1203 on 2019/02/14 02:48
No multitasking or split screen on iPad! Seriously Google? What a joke! Deleting this and using Airmail
Will not allow you to sign in.
by DAC zero on 2019/02/14 00:51
After downloading the app it would not let me sign in stating “cannot connect”. Disappointed because in the past there was no issues. However, Google you have always been good at fixing issues promptly so I am still a fan of your work.
Please fix new update

PDF file zooms out!
by Aleha237 on 2019/02/13 18:11
I get a lot of PDF files to my email and need to zoom in to get the details. This app defaults the view to full size every time I try to zoom in! I have to send the file to whatsapp to read it! Thats SUPER ANNOYING, pls fix it. Pls fix it!!!
What the heck?!?
by dyan007 on 2019/02/13 18:02
What’s going on here??? I thought maybe gmail had been discontinued in favor of google’s inbox app, but I saw an invitation today that I should get gmail because inbox was being discontinued in March and gmail has added new features like snooze. Okay...so I reloaded it, but it’s still giving me a “no connection” screen when I select sign in on the cover page. It’s just that in a loop. There’s no options to fix it. I’d like to see if gmail has improved. I had it before and deleted it in favor of Spark which has a really nice setup and great features. However, I don’t get get any access to edit/delete folders or filters which the gmail inbox does give me. Even though, it’s unpleasant to use, I keep it around for the situations where I need to organize. Spark has both google email apps outstripped by far with folders being the only exception. I have no idea how this app gets so many good reviews unless it’s just simple name recognition. Edited to add: I’m still getting warnings that Inbox is going away and invitations to get gmail. I’ve loaded and deleted the app several times and never get past the “no connection” screen but everything else on my phone is working fine.
Littered with ads
by Zfgggdgetygjjtddfdr on 2019/02/13 16:58
Google has lost their mind in regards to advertising. They constantly jam 2-3 ads in your inbox and disguise them as emails. Uninstalled
Options are lacking
by Newly Retired instagramer on 2019/02/13 06:45
I’ll start by saying I love gmail, but the app is terrible. There is no flexibility and it lacks so many features that other email apps offer. It is clunky to use and not intuitive at all. This one needs a scrap and restart.
Need “delete all” in Gmail app for Promo/Social folder....
by Jo Request on 2019/02/13 05:29
I am previous Google Inbox user. With increasing promotion/social emails, it is nice feature that gmail has to seperated emails by folder: Primary, Promotion and Social. However, one of the main functionalities that users uses frequently is delete all. In “Inbox” app, when you see new emails in “Promotion” folder, you could hold the “promotion” in Inbox view, and you could delete all the new emails in that promotion. Currently, in gmail app, the user has to delete the emails one at a time. This is a very tedious process for the user as on a given day I get 20/30 emails in social folder. Please consider adding this function in the next gmail mobile app. Thank you.
Exceptional
by Kingster84 on 2019/02/13 05:19
I generally enjoy this email app. Being able to sync many accounts no matter the host is very nice. Only thing I wish was different, is the ability to select multiple messages and delete all at once. Instead of having to swipe every single message you want to delete.
Forced to Switch?
by Arrca on 2019/02/13 04:08
I do Not like being forced to use this instead of Inbox. It is clunkier and less intuitive. But Mostly I just don’t like having the choice taken away from me.
New Update feels unorganized.
by Rolando V. on 2019/02/13 03:55
I could switch to my different emails in less than a second. This one takes a little longer.
Swipe to snooze option like Inbox
by Anthony_3446 on 2019/02/13 02:37
Since you’re taking away Inbox, can you add the Snooze option when you swipe an email to the right like you can in Inbox? Right now swiping both left and right archives an email which seems redundant function.
Archive?
by ihatearchiveswipe on 2019/02/12 23:03
PLEASE change the archive swipe completely. I have lost SO MANY IMPORTANT WORK EMAILS.
Help stopping unwanted email ads!

Where can I find someone to help me stop these 50 or more email ads a day. I’ve tried to unsubscribe but they keep coming. I’m an eighty year old Grandma and everything was fine until something generated these obnoxious emails about two months ago. I talked to Apple but they couldn’t help. Can someone please, please help me?

Difficult, barebones email access
by Jmcbango on 2019/02/12 19:56
UI is wonky at best, asinine at worst. No mark all as read, no mark as read at all in fact. The only way to clear notifications is to manually open each email one by one or mark and delete emails. Swiping emails left or right serves the same function of archiving the message, rather than marking it as read or giving the option to flag or move the message as one would come to expect from experience with apple’s native mail app. The only positive thing I can say about it is that email composition is convenient and easy to execute. Otherwise, it’s a sad excuse for a mail client from one of the largest tech companies in the world.

Great App but Bug
by OhhSnapItsMikeyy on 2019/02/12 18:25
It's a great email client but ever since about a month ago, the app will crash 7/10 times when attempting to move an email. Can this get fixed please? Super annoying.

New bug
by imonlyreviewingbcimannoyed on 2019/02/12 14:30
Great until as of late. Keeps crashing every time I try to open the app. I deleted it and re-downloading it only for it to be okay that night and back to how it was the next morning.
Update

Won’t update. And no reason why. Would be nice. I’ve tried several times and all I get is retry. For a few days.
Why
by Stubbz on 2019/02/12 04:29
Why the white washed look? Make it stop. The new update is TRASH!! I wish I didn’t rely so much on this friggin app otherwise it would be deleted.
Stopped working
by grassisgreen2 on 2019/02/12 04:29
Normally this app is great, especially with the new update to see all inboxes together. However, with this update it has more or less completely stopped working. I’ll get notifications that then don’t show up in my inbox unless I use the search tool, emails that won’t delete or constantly show up as unread, and emails that said they sent but don’t seem to ever been received. I’m hoping this is some other problem or a bug that can be quickly fixed, otherwise I’ll be deleting and going back to apple mail.
All inbox
by Peanut(9700)••••• on 2019/02/12 01:55

Inbox

Inbox is way better than Gmail
A Less Functional Version of Inbox
by Kjg05 on 2019/02/11 21:10
It's like I upgraded from Blu-Ray to VCR. Bundling isn't the same and it feels like a step back. Running parallel programs and then closing one isn't new to Google but I'm sure disappointed with how this Inbox closing has gone.
Garbage

APP IS UNUSABLE
by NHC35 on 2019/02/11 17:56
The app has not been registering for weeks any changes made on the desktop. Feedback was sent to Gmail a few weeks ago and none of the updates have fixed the problem. If I delete/move an email on my computer I shouldn’t have make the same deletion/move on the app. It’s extremely frustrating and a waste of my time.

Why is this replacing Inbox?
by MrsHHTeacher321 on 2019/02/11 03:03
It’s really annoying to not have a select all button, especially within a category like promos. I don’t want to erase 80 emails one at a time every day. Inbox was much better because you could scroll, pin anything you wanted to save, and erase everything else with one button. I like having my inbox app show no new emails. It feels like I can never achieve that in this app. When Google Inbox goes away, I’m switching to Outlook. They at least have a “select all” feature. This app is the biggest waste of time.
What is going on with this app??????
by Beke1968 on 2019/02/11 02:32
Have been a long time user of this app. All of a sudden, it began Locking and dropping for more than a week now on both iPhone and iPad. Please please please get this fixed!!!! Started out of nowhere. Have deleted and reloaded app. Restarted both pieces of equipment. Same thing. Help!

Annoying Ads
by chachalee333 on 2019/02/10 21:40
Just updated to this app. Now I get these annoying ad banners. They look like emails but no way to click unsubscribe. Whatever you click takes you to their website. Not fair! Checked in help and there’s no way to stop them. Can’t even mark them as spam. I will look for a new email.
I love it

Text alignment problem
by Adakockenzh on 2019/02/10 17:52
I’m on the iPhone XS and the preview of the promotions folder sometimes overlays text on top of the email below it. Also the number of unread emails on the left panel account circle covers up part of the account name below it. Please fix these glitches.
Please add Touch ID/Face ID support

Inbox by Google is Better
by Bradical55 on 2019/02/10 00:49
Inbox has more features than Gmail - sweep feature, more intuitive swipe features, etc. I went back to Gmail when they started this campaign for the “new Gmail experience” but came right back to Inbox once I saw the lack of features I do not want inbox to go away because this app is inferior
Why would I download yet a third mail app to have to maintain.
by Datamaniac on 2019/02/09 21:21
Apple mail May not sort but all my mail accounts are in one place for instant visibility. When I want to do more like manage events or meetings or have sorts I simply use Outlook. So two mail clients are enough Google. Stick with what you know best - serving up knowledge. I respect you in That arena. Mail - not so much. If you are going to mimic Hotmail and Outlook then just go the extra mile. Give All the bells and whistles AND support all the competitors email as well in ONE app. THAT my friend is the winner. :)
Great

Ads on mail inbox. Not acceptable at all.
by Shanbhag87 on 2019/02/09 14:01
Google!! Please don't interfere in personal mailbox as well. This is not at all acceptable to see ads which just looks like emails. One thing Google should understand the users should have privacy.
Another ducking browser!
by TheAurynSymbol on 2019/02/09 13:27

by Rhybread on 2019/02/09 02:57
I’m a devoted user of the Inbox app but since it will no longer exist after March I decided to try and get used to this one. I hate everything about it. I don’t want to be notified of every promotional email that hits my inbox, I hate seeing that red circle notification on my screen thinking it’s something important when it’s really not, but this app gives me notifications for every little thing. I can’t figure out how to make it stop. Inbox was so much better, bring it back and throw this one away

There are so many small things that inbox did that gmail isn’t doing. The biggest one for me is bundling emails that’s I’ve selected to go in specific categories. The reason I even got inbox was to avoid having to read through a barrage of emails to figure out important ones and move them all around everyday. I am sorely disappointed.
Copy and Paste

Why can’t I copy text from an email?
Blindingly White
by Ktarian on 2019/02/08 22:22
I opened my mail today and winced at how bright everything is with the newest version. No options for color themes. Please give those of us who have difficulty with supremely white and super high contrast an option that doesn’t make us wince. Thanks.
Really upset
by disappointed1234--** on 2019/02/08 22:18
I hate the iPhone mail app so I was so happy when I found gmail! I’ve loved how it displays my mail in folders rather than just a list of emails. This new app takes away that one feature that really sold me on the app. I really wish I had a choice rather than being forced to switch to this new app.... but I guess I’ll just use the iPhone mail app from now on.

So good
Missing basic functions
by Tokyo bound on 2017/09/22 21:08
I swiped on an email heading and the email disappeared. It never told me what it was doing with the email. Did it delete it? Did it archive it? Did it forward it to my grandma? I had no idea. So I looked for the undo button. Oh, there ISN'T one. I shook the phone, which works in EVERY OTHER APP, it's a basic iPhone function. Nope. That didn't work either. I found the email still there under "All Mail" but there was no way to undo the archive and put it back into my primary folder, at least no way that was immediately intuitive. So that was super frustrating. Also, there is no "mark unread from here" in an email conversation. So if I mark something as unread, the entire email chain gets marked as unread. This is ridiculous. I sometimes have conversations with clients that have 50 emails back and forth. I don't want to have to go through them all again. Unfortunately, the built-in iPhone mail app does the same thing. But at least it has an undo function. I have gotten to where I rarely check email on my phone because there isn't yet a good app to deal with it. It used to be simple and it used to work. Now with all the folders and functions, replacing basic functionality, it just makes it a pain. Companies always try to fix things that aren't broken and just break them in the process. So this app is deleted. And I will go back to using the iPhone mail app to scan the previews and go to my Mac to actually reply.
Limited usefulness
by robotv on 2017/12/13 20:33
I like the email notifications on my home screen, but it seems a bit arbitrary what emails it will alert me about. Most of the time I will get alerts if a certain person sends me an email, and sometimes I just don’t get an alert at all, and I end up missing their email for a few days because I expect I will get an alert like I always do when they me send me mail. What really bites my cheese is that you can only look back about 100 emails or so when scrolling through your folders. So unless you religiously check all of your folders every day, it is very likely that you will find yourself in the situation while trying to catch up with mail that the stupid thing just won’t load any more emails for you. In that case you have to use the web client on a computer to actually be able to access all of your mail. If you are forcing me to use a computer to read my mail, that defeats the purpose of having a mail reading app! I am on my feet and out and about all day, so I really need to be able to catch up on allll my mail from my mobile device. Since this app doesn’t allow me to do that, I have fallen woefully behind on my email, to the point where I can’t catch up, making email in general pretty useless for me. In other words, gmail has kind of killed email for me. :/ Please fix this!
NO WAY!!!
by Jseabaugh25 on 2018/10/24 14:40
Just looking at the reviews is enough!! But why would anyone that has had ad much TROUBLE with you as I have even try a update??? Your contact oh wait feedback is a JOKE!!! All started with the email from YOU!!! Then you just cant seen to help do anything to fix it!!!! Your latest update says INBOX is that a JOKE?????? What inbox I’ve used gmail for years and you WERE THE BEST!!!! Then came the day where you just changed EVERYTHING nothing works like it’s supposed to why is it that nobody got a say in this STUPID CHANGE??? Not only did you change it completely You also decide WHERE our emails go!!!! Just WOW acting like Facebook much????? Nothing I’ve seen to fix it you put IMPORTANT emails in promotions I SEVERAL times a day move them back to primary and you would think that they would start going there but. No so I use more and more data and my time and more moving them than I do going through them and doing whatever it is I need to do!!!! This started with the ADS and you send those 15 to 20 a day!!!! No unsubscribe have to click the stupid why this add and go from there and STILL get the same adds!!!!! I’ve all but took everything off to STOP this and NOTHING has changed!!!!! The links you provide that you say to use to stop the ads DO NOT WORK!!!!!!! Are you going to FIX THESE PROBLEMS or just sit there and think of ways to mess it up more like so many of the other sites so wish I could give zero stars
SUPERIOR SERVICE
by Alvertes on 2018/06/13 07:45
I have been using email for quite some time now and I have found Gmail to be far superior than any other email service I have used in the past. The ability to ORGANIZE important emails with labels and stay on top of my inbox and archives gives me a personal edge. For professional documentation of conversations with Government Officials and other Professional Organizations, I have been able to quickly retrieve important conversations that have supported my position and even helped me win disputes. Speaking of “search ability”, there have been occasions where I may have forgotten an individual’s EXACT name or exact email address, but knew I had it somewhere; all I had to do was put an “@“ symbol in the search box and a “portion” of the organization’s name or something else in the search criteria and the correct email address or variations thereof “surfaces from the ETHER” which makes life so much easier being able to find ALL CONVERSATIONS associated with that email address! I can then properly label or categorized all correspondences with that email address for future reference. KEEP THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX WITH YOUR IMPROVEMENTS AND UPGRADES, IT IS WORKING!!!
Almost perfect, but two major flaws
by MicReh on 2018/11/02 19:19
I have been using Gmail since forever, but the app fails to do two things that you can do on the computer. One, if you click on the star, you can only make it yellow or keep it blank. But I use this feature so that I can alert my front desk which items are for them, which are for me, which things need to be printed, etc. On the computer you can make the star turn into a number of different colors or shapes, but the app is only super basic. It almost renders the entire experience useless because after I go through all my emails on my app in the morning, I still have to go onto the computer and go through the whole process again to flag each email appropriately. Two, on the computer, you can click that little square box that highlights all of the emails under the category and then do what you need to do with all of them. For example, you can highlight all the stupid emails in the promotion tab and delete them with one click on the computer, but on the app you have to do it item by item. This is very very annoying. Gmail, come on already. You map the entire planet, but you can’t do these two things? Seriously.
Severely limited functionality
by bigshot_bob on 2018/08/27 14:10
I use my iPad for work, as I need to take high resolution videos and have quick access to apps. The Gmail app has such terribly limited usability in key areas. First, it is crazy that I cannot create bulleted or numbered lists. This seems like a key component to writing succinct emails and I am not sure why this is not included. Second, I cannot copy and paste tables from other Google apps and keep the formatting! We send programs to clients that we create in Google sheets, but we do not need to send the entire sheet at one time, only a part. You simply cannot do this without creating an entirely new sheet, and then sharing it with them, which is simply not functional. I would rather be able to copy and paste the section of the sheet that is necessary to use. Lastly, the emails I send from my iPad do not have the same formatting as the desktop site. Again, I am at a loss as to why this is the case. We have a specific signature that we need to use in order to send protected information, and I have to set this signature up again instead of it carrying over from my desktop accessibility. The only good thing about this app is that I can access my email from it. However, it severely limits my ability to send useful emails and this kills my productivity during work hours with my iPad.
Why does gmail have a web browser?
by p m 8 8 on 2019/01/23 16:13
Why does this app have a built in web browser? If you click on a link in an email a little window comes up that asks if you want to open it in chrome or safari. I don't have chrome installed because I feel that google harvests enough information about me as it is. So i select open in safari. However when I do this it does not open safari. It opens this miniature web browser that is baked into gmail, there is a button on the bottom of the screen that forwards you to safari. But its too late. The link has been opened in a google made web browser. This is annoying and deceitful. If its a link that can only be used once, then opening it in this mini browser has just ruined the link so that I would have do whenever it is in this built in browser. I would say its okay if I could just delete all cookies and such from this mini bowser but there is no option. And even even if i could delete the information its too late because google already saw what I was doing in that session. I can only assume that google now has any and all information that has been put into the mini browser. I would use a different email app however google has made it so that I cant use any other email app with a gmail account... so I guess I’m just screwed.
No Connection errors
by cpoagsc on 2017/09/27 03:01
Revision: I’m an idiot and this app is great. The reason I had trouble with the app when not on WiFi was because data was turned off for the app in my phone’s settings. Changed my low rating to a 5-star. This app is completely useless for me on iPhone. It never connects and reports "no connection" at the bottom of the screen while every other app on the phone has no trouble connecting. It is only this app that has problems connecting. I've followed all help and forum posts I've found and they're pretty useless. I've logged out and back in (sometimes it won't even let me log back in, giving me the "no connection" error). I've deleted and reinstalled the app many times with no success. And yes, Google, I'm sure I'm using the correct password. Google needs to resolve the "no connection" error issue with an update rather than just advising people to check their password or make sure they're connected to the internet (when every other app on the device works fine).
Great functionality with few flaws
by Evil on the Wwweb on 2018/04/23 16:10
In the corporate world I am forced to use Microsoft Outlook as my primary email client. In the private sector, i use Gmail for almost everything else. Gmail has become a standard that other email sites attempt to emulate. The integration of its own suite of office programs has eliminated the need for more costly applications for senior users and youngsters. Google has learned from Apple in placing Gmail and Google Docs on entry level tablets and Chrome Books. I could continue this thread but I mentioned “flaws” in the title. Some people complain about the steady stream of bug fixes and see it as evidence of how poorly Gmail and other Google products were written. This is a false impression. What it does show is the speed with which the technical teams that Support Gmail and Google are adapting to the ever-changing environment of hackers spammers and other nefarious groups that are attempting to disrupt our lives. Most things that appear as flaws are really undocumented tools. —- 30 —-
Warning about adding emails to your gmail
by Cuchabybaby on 2018/01/20 16:24
You will run out of memory faster because the other accounts you can add will add to your memory with ALL google products. I was enticed to add my yahoo account to a gmail address last year. What happened is that I’ve had gmail since 2005 and love it. I lost my free “legacy” added memory because I had to upgrade or I’d lose my emails.I spent hours going through my messages and deleting them because I received warnings if I didn’t upgrade soon, messages would disappear and if I did upgrade I’d lose my free space. I upgraded and I have my memory back on Apple products but for about a month or two on my Windows 10 laptop that I use for business, it was still showing that warning. Eventually it synced. So before you put all your emails in your gmail feed, check out if the “new gmail”will eat your memory and force an upgrade $$$$ before memory runs out and it’s pay to play. I’ve been a huge fan but I didn’t understand the takeaway of legacy memory. It was supposed to be lifetime but if I added on, it was gone and that’s what happened to “do no harm”
Best Free Email Tool
by SZTC on 2017/11/16 11:37
To me, nothing beats MS Outlook for ease, functionality, integration, calendar, etc. However, Gmail is generally easy, they don’t bombard users with ads, the app is terrific - it’s simply straightforward and not overly complicated or engineered like many tech organizations tend to do. Meaning, keep it simple and friendly to all generations. The cons are; can’t create or change the name of a folder via the app; no calendar invite (accept, decline, tentative feature), add alert to your smartphone calendar (or at least an easy to find and use); Gmail arbitrarily disappears from Google Home page. Again, I’m happy with the app, just spoiled with Outlook and most corporate servers now block all online email tools for security reasons. Google and Google Chrome - to me - are hands down the cleanest and best. Other browsers pepper a user with tons of pop ups, videos... I know my mother and in laws fear using other browsers. I hope Google remembers that they can continue to dominate and grab more market share by building their tools for all generations. Fast, simple, obvious and easy.
Pretty sad response time from Google
by Vandill on 2017/10/12 12:21
This is a pretty good app by Google. Currently there is a problem that I'm seeing with badge notifications not properly updating. I've tried to remove the app from my phone and reinstall it but that didn't solve the issue. Started with iOS11 so I'm guessing it is related. I would like an option to mark something as read from the notification screen instead of, or in addition to archiving. Maybe I'm alone in this but I don't really use the archive feature. Anyway, 3 stars until the badges issue is resolved. It lets you check your email so it does its job. Nothing flashy or special. Like most of Google's apps. It's functional which is good enough. Dropping rating to 1 star and uninstalling in a week if Google, one of the biggest tech companies in the world, can't fix a notification bug. I mean come on. I'm guessing that at least 1 guys job at Google is to care about the app working. Even if it's just 1 guy he could have already fixed this in a day. Get it together. We give you all our private information willingly and you can't have a guy fix the red badge that a 13 year old kid that is learning to make apps for the first time can edit and change?
Great mail app except for browser preference
by AEOHP on 2018/03/02 12:26
In general I like this mail app a lot. I am happy to have my inbox sorted as it is on the desktop. I wish it was easier to attach documents from “Pages” and “Files” instead of only from the camera, recent attachments and drive. But my biggest complaint is this: When I go to open a link from an email and it asks if I want to use chrome or safari, I choose safari because that is my preference on my iPhone. I switch off the little “ask me every time” button. The very next time I go to open a link from an email, it could be the exact same link one second later, the browser preference window opens again, with the button switched on. It adds an unnecessary step every time I look at things from an email. Also, my saved safari things don’t all translate over to the safari that pops up within the app. I know you want me to use chrome because it is your product, but you offer a choice so it would be nice if that choice worked 😊
Is this Really for Ages 4,5,6,and 7?
by ahmed kkhan on 2018/12/27 16:44
Hi Gmail, I love the app, but I’m kind of confused if this app is really for kids ages 4. If you scroll up to the top you will see something that says “For Ages 4 and up.” I think the Idea of having kids in elementary school and that 5,6, and 7 isn’t a very smart idea, if kids not mature enough use the app what do you think is going to happen? I personally think what's going to happen is that kids are going to get messages from random people asking for pictures of them naked or something, the 2nd thing I think is going to happen is that kids are going to message people like murderers and they might give away their address or something so that’s bad, and the last thing I think is going to happen is that kids are going to run away and meet the “love of their life” (the child predator that asked he or she to meet him or her) and get kidnapped. So I recommend you change that so parents can not get confused and let these happen to their children. Sincerely, Jeniffer.
So glad I switched to Google Mail
by Shonziola on 2018/09/12 12:14
Update: I continue to be impressed. I’ve learned the ins and outs of how Google does things, and find it vastly superior to others. I cannot tell you how nice it is to not have a mailbox full of junk and spam. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Previous review: I am so pleased with my new Google email account! I switched from hotmail about two weeks ago because I had gotten so frustrated. An account I had had for ten years. It was an intimidating thought to have to handle switching my email and handling all the changes to my financial, business, personal contacts. But I am so glad I took the leap. And your suggestions of how to create a more private and secure email were very helpful. Instead of getting about a hundred junk, phishing, spam mail I had to sort through every day, I rarely have a single one. The way Google has improved my email experience is beyond my expectations. Just wanted to say thanks!
Absolutely the best email !
by askbob on 2018/02/07 16:41
I’m 73 years old, and remember the early days of the Internet. I remember being so excited when email was available to the public. Email, even with its flaws, was so exciting and revolutionary in giving people around the world Way of communicating with each other. Junk mail became a problem almost immediately and you were given very little storage– – But I loved it! Then various email providers became available, each adding an improved feature or a new one. Then, Gmail came out. The absolute best it accurately getting rid of junk mail, givingIng an enormous amount of free storage space — to many new innovations to mention here. Granted, Manny email providers have copied and improved their email tremendously. So if you want to stay with your catch-up email provider, I understand. I’m going to stick with the proven leader in innovation and reliability — and, as you may have guessed, recommend it to all. Bob Coberg
This App Needs Some Help!
by Debhem on 2017/11/04 21:22
I’ve been using this app for several years now so I have noticed a few things that could be improved. #1. The ability to disable conversation “threads” for those of us who dislike how our emails behave when there are several responses to a particular email. #2. Recently, my Inboxes have been getting emails that are clearly Spam emails! Why is this happening? I would like to be able to select these emails, without opening them, and put them into the Spam folder. Unfortunately, I can’t select any of those emails! Currently, I have to do that from my computer instead of from my iPhone! That’s a major inconvenience! #3. Since the launch of iPhone 11.0 update, my phone alerts me that I have a new email, but it turns out that I really don’t. I end up wasting time logging on to my phone only to find out that the sound notification was erroneous. #4. As others have mentioned, the red notification flag isn’t always responsive when all new emails has been read. Fixing these issues would make my use of Gmail much more effective and enjoyable!
People Have Different Needs
by DellBell16 on 2018/07/31 04:57
I was ok with this account when I first joined a few years ago. I usually log on via my phone. When I use the library or my laptop the format seems different. Each time they make improvements I like it less. Perhaps this is not for me or I need to take some Tito arrange my account in a way that suits me, if this is possible. I am quite frustrated with it. I want to get rid of junk mail and trash. I believe I finally found out how to not have archived mail. When I open my email and ask for current mail, hundreds of old mail that I have tried many times before, appear right back in. What is going on? My daughter doesn't understand what I am trying to explain to her. Although she does ask me why I have so much mail. I would like the space on my cell phone to be freed up from those unnecessary emails. Any advice? I have not taken the time to set up a new email account someplace else. If they could help me understand how to maneuver maybe I won't have to contact all my contacts with a new mail address. Right now I hate my account!!
No it’s not missing basic functions
by bcrum2 on 2018/04/08 10:44
There is an undue function and you can move it to archive. Your main gmail settings in app allow you to determine what happens to an email when you swipe it. Default is to archive but you can also set it to delete. Both of which populate an undo button at the bottom of the screen. Also while some config settings must be done from the full web version you can determine if mails are organized in a conversation thread or individual and even still you can mark them both as a thread or individually as un read etc. I guess what I am saying is the guy whining is just suffering operator error due to him suffering mental ID 10 T errors. Seriously don’t get in a wad because you can’t be bothered to learn an app. All that said I give it a four because I feel that google has gone for form over function and that the earlier versions say from the iOS 6 or pre ice cream sandwich days was far better and far more functional.
Minimalist design, minimalist features
by Gleep52 on 2019/01/30 18:16
This is an email app by the biggest email host ever right? Why isn’t there a swipe to move feature? And the “move to” feature is buried under a menu instead of just out in the open. Everyone I know who has this app complains about this - how is it not added yet? I have yet to find any email app that doesn’t have this feature. It’s just basic email organization. Also, as with most apps sadly, developers haven’t caught on that putting the buttons at the top makes their app two handed or burdensome by hand occlusion or multiple swipes and taps to achieve the same thing if the navigation/buttons were at the bottom of the screen. Leave the top blank and empty - keep that minimal and bring the interactive parts of the app within one handed easy reach (bottom). Lastly, the shake to undo feature is missing which is a basic iPhone feature every app should be held accountable for... not sure how this made it though the App Store approval process with out “shake to undo”, but be warned - this app doesn’t have that cool and useful feature.
Notifications not working
by Keith Nerdin on 2017/10/23 14:07
I’m not sure if this is an iOS 11 issue or what, but notifications are no longer working properly. I’ve used (and loved) the gmail app for a long time, but recently it’s become a big enough pain I’m considering switching to a different app. I’m an “inbox zero” kind of guy. So when I go in and check all my emails and archive them and leave nothing in my inbox and close my app and it still shows a red badge on the gmail icon with 3 or so unread emails, it’s maddening. Sometimes I’ll pull my phone out 20 minutes later and it will still show unread emails, I’ll check, and it’ll still be zero. Ack!! Totally defeats the purpose of a badge icon with number indicators. It’s making me waste so much time, feel so inefficient, and making me question why I continue using what feels like a broken app. I close the app often, regularly keep the app and my iOS updated, and power off my phone frequently. And none of it seems to help.
Down, your out!!
by Lilnic46 on 2017/09/14 04:46
I loaded this app with my previous iPhone and was discussed with google was presenting to us as gmail!!! I already automatically get my gmail through my phones email settings. It works great except you need to make preferences on a computer. This app doesn't even allow you to group your emails into sub categories only conversations. I had given up on this program the first time I downloaded it because of how much of a pain it was. I was just prompted by my gmail to download this app for reasons that sounded good. Unfortunately when I went to the play store it showed that this app was already downloaded. If I left because I was disappointed and your updates all say the same things and don't address the problems, why would I waste my time and put it back on my phone??? My gmail that is through my phones settings for gmail is excellent. I have all the options I need!!! Why doesn't google partner with apple to get some pointers on how a good email program should behave and what it should offer!!! Terrible app!!! Don't waste your time!!!
Forced to use Gmail. Farewell Inbox.
by mattsmee on 2018/09/15 15:01
Been using Gmail since beta. Inbox came along and it quickly became the only client I used daily. I understand that without Gmail as a solid foundation/backbone, there wouldn’t be Inbox. However, Inbox’s features are not something you can just unlearned immediately. I really hope Google Gmail/Inbox Team could see this message. The feature that I will miss the most is Bundle. Behind the scene Gmail uses labels. It’s not easy to simply bring Bundle to Gmail because it already has the feature called Category, which is too similar. If there could be one feature I want to see in Gmail from Inbox is Bundle. Why? It does a very good job grouping mails (customizable) into my Bundles. I can quickly open up each, scan though mails that I care, then archive the entire bundle in one tap/click/swipe. No better/quicker way to have a clean mailbox like Bundle enables. Thank you for your service, Inbox. Farewell!
Notifications broken?
by PshThisKid on 2017/10/30 01:44
I love this app. With each update it’s become so streamlined and efficient. I love that I can switch between email accounts with ease. And as a person who constantly hits the wrong button, having an “undo” for every action is extremely helpful. I also really like being able to delete an email from the notification banner so I don’t have to waste time opening the app and reading it if it’s unimportant. My one issue has been the notifications, specifically the red badge when you have new mail. I keep a clean inbox and it’s always satisfying when I have no new mail. I’m not sure if the newest update has a mistake or maybe it’s the new iOS, but the badges have been stuck and take a few days to catch up to reflect on actual new mail. It’s frustrating to see the app icon and think “oh I have mail” then open it and find no, that is incorrect. I’m hoping the issue will be fixed soon.
Can’t secure the app or use settings properly.
by The King5625 on 2018/05/10 01:52
While this review will most likely be ignored, I figured I would let those that want a secure app to avoid Google’s Gmail app. I was downloading this app to secure my Gmail email. I was trying to see if there was an option to secure the app with Touch ID and I was unable to see all the app settings. When I went to the Google app settings I scrolled to the bottom to see if I could secure the app in the “Other settings” section. Unfortunately the “Other settings” section didn’t work. What is the point of using the Gmail app rather than the iOS mail app when neither can be secured. I work at a school and I want to secure my work email since the information contained in it is extremely sensitive and confidential. Microsoft’s Outlook app can secure itself with Touch ID why can’t Google? I can also use Microsoft’s Outlook app for my Gmail account. What’s the point of using Google’s app when Microsoft’s Outlook app is better with security? If this problem is addressed then I’ll remove this review if I can. If I can’t remove it then I’ll add another review posting the responsiveness of Google.
Overall a great app with a few flaws
by Ltrainlj33 on 2018/01/09 21:12
Gmail delivers a good email experience free of glitches and bugs that have plagued competitors that I've tested. The only issues I have with the app are: 1) too many ads 2) mediocre file attachment system. Just look at Outlook mobile. Then copy it. For example, why can't we look through the different photo albums on our iPhones when attaching photos? Instead it forces us into the Moments album only. Where's the support for attaching from other cloud services? Google drive is the only option. 3) not enough control over notifications. I'd like to be able to mute all email notifications except for messages that come from a certain person or are sent to a certain label (Google's name for inbox subfolders). Instead, the options for notifications are: all new mail, primary only or none. Why not give us more control? I only want to be notified of an email from my immediate family and a handful of others. Besides them everyone else can kindly wait until I choose to actively check my own email. I'd rather not be bombarded with constant notifications on my phone, tablet and watch for promotions, newsletters, etc.. And the "primary only" option relies on Google's ability to decide which of my messages are high priority, which Google isn't very good at. Resolve these three issues and this app gets 5 starts! Thanks!
Our real CampusWeb
by Johnny Days on 2018/04/30 13:28
It is safe to say that after all these years being on the Google platform out in a Pacific Island dot on the World Atlas, I cannot express enough gratitude for all the wonderful strides at Google Headquarters that jettisoned many useful apps today! As a public school teacher on Guam, I tried to use my Google Classroom but the ball fell at The Guam Public School systems' headquarters after several attempts not only contacting IT department, but also going physically before its appointed liaison in order to digitize my classroom. It did not go live which sucked major although no fault whatsoever on Google, Inc. Maybe one day I may learn all the different apps you've created but I crave tutorials less than 3 minutes since that is the attention span of our students today no matter where the are located. My thanks and appreciation always Google!
Not ready for Inbox users until remainder show up inline with email
by camyoshi123 on 2018/10/27 22:04
I totally get why Google is killing Inbox for Gmail. Inbox was a test bed for features that would eventually make it into Gmail, and now that the test is done, it’s much more efficient to support a single email product. I believe in the long run the long run, this will be a win/win for everybody. Unfortunately, they left out a feature that is critical to my and other users’ workflows. My email inbox is my to do list. I only look there to decide what I need to do. Inbox for Gmail engrained this workflow and it is close to flawless. Google suggests to use Tasks for a workaround. This is not close to the same. Now I have to look at two places and triage what is the most important thing to work on. With Inbox, it takes just a couple of clicks to add a reminder. Once saved, it shows up in your inbox in line with the other emails. Or you can set a future date and it will be hidden until that time. The only true workaround I’ve found is to email myself whenever I need a reminder. This takes several more steps (New email, to: me, subject: something to do, Send, when email arrives, click it and snooze until the appropriate time). This takes more effort and feels like a hacky solution. Google, please, for the love of every one of your loyal guinea pigs who helped to improve Gmail’s usability, add the reminder feature before cutting off access to Inbox!
Near perfect!

This app is very much improved, and I'm actually starting to really like it! I love that you can disable Conversation View and can easily swipe to delete/archive a message. It's colorful and easy to use, and has lots of options that it didn't use to have. There's only one thing that would really improve it... In the iPhone settings (Settings —>Notifications —>Show Previews), I'd love for there to be an option to show previews, but to only be able to see the sender while on the lock screen, and not the subject or body of the message. That's the way my old email app was, and it was so useful. (You’re able to know who’s sending the message, but don’t have to worry about other people reading it.) But other than that, I'm really loving this app! Kudos to all the people working to make it great!
NEW VERSION IS FRUSTRATING!
by AmyPiac on 2017/09/22 15:38
I procrastinated updating to the new style version for months, because I depended heavily on this app and loved it. I finally caved and have been using it for about a month now. And it just frustrates me! The badge notification for new mail doesn't always go away after all messages are read. Adding attachments is cumbersome now; it automatically imbeds them in your message and you have to individually select each to make it an actual attachment - and the app always freezes; I have to close it out and reopen it to get them attached properly. The option of "mark as unread/read" no longer exists (SINCERELY miss that). Also, if I open a new email from iPhone's drop-down notifications (banner), I can read it in the gmail app fine - but the app keeps it as unread until I re-open the app from the home screen and view the email again. I don't get it?! Those are my biggest complaints. I like just being able to swipe to delete, but that convenience isn't worth the loss of the other features and the frustration.
Best mail app in a weak field - could be awesome
by Artappstore on 2017/09/29 09:17
I’ve tried every mail app out there and while some have better features than gmail (snooze messages, Dropbox integration) most of them have fatal flaws around performance, reliability of syncing message or search changes that render them unusable- including apple’s iOS mail client. Gmail is the best of the field because it is fast and the most reliable. That said, it has a few things I’d love to see addressed to make it 5 stars: 1) Freezing - the app occasionally hangs on the message list page, especially when going from landscape to portrait mode. Sometimes it recovers, other times you have to kill it. My guess is that it’s doing a remote call and the UI is waiting on it to finish when it shouldn’t be 2) drilling into the to and from fields. Apple iOS makes this easy - you can click someone’s name to find their phone number from you contacts and call or text them. 3) replying or forwarding specific threads in messages is cumbersome. Gmail buries this action in an ellipsis when it needs its own small icon. Apples iOS app does this well 4) unified inbox, starred and sent messages for multiple accounts - all the other apps do this well 5) message snoozing - outlook for iOS and mail (fka gladly do) do this well 6) Dropbox integration for file attachments
Almost Perfect
by Yeah, You Know on 2018/02/02 14:17
The app loads very quickly, and hasn’t crashed on me yet. I manage three different e-mails as well, and it’s very easy to switch between them and see which ones have new messages. The spam and trash folders empty automatically after 30 days which is also a nice feature. The one problem I have with the app, is there is no select all button. Sometimes I will archive e-mails instead of deleting them, or will simply have them in my inbox and need to delete them. When this happens, usually I want to delete 95% of my messages in the inbox or all mail folder. It would be easier to select all and then deselect the few messages I need to keep rather than meticulously select each individual message. It’s kind of silly that you have this amazing company known for their technological prowess, but they can’t put a simple select all button in.
A truly terrible app
by Lkanapp on 2018/05/26 17:57
I don’t write reviews but the gmail team sent me email saying Big Brother had seen I wasn’t using their app, so I had to try it. I use Apple email so I will compare. I have six email accounts (3 google, yahoo, att, Apple). Apple lets me see one integrated inbox or I can choose just one. Gmail makes you switch between each one every time by selecting a tiny circle on the bottom left or three lines at the upper left. Very cumbersome. Apple uses Settings for my email accounts, all easy to use and all the same to create. Gmail makes me go through hoops to attach the other accounts and the inbox for each account is tied to one of my google accounts, so they share inboxes and I have to decide which of my 3 gmails to use and remember for the other 3. Apple lets me see all the folders of all my email accounts and select them by showing a third window pane on the left. Gmail doesn’t do this at all. The list that comes up is only for the current of my 3 gmails. No folders from other accounts. Apple pops up a window for new email that fills middle third of screen with the inbox/email shown greyed out in background, a nice reminder of what I might be creating a new email for. Gmail fills the entire screen with a new email and on my large iPad Pro it is very, very annoying and jolts me so, I have to close it to remember what I was thinking. This was all in the first five minutes. I didn’t waste any more time, so look elsewhere for an in-depth review.
Good App but certain important elements missing
by DreO_O on 2018/09/14 19:42
I like using the apps but it is missing some basic functionality. 1) Split Screen Multitasking functionality should be added to the app. I often send emails in a foreign languages and I like to have a multilingual dictionary app in the split view to check words as I write. I see no obvious reason why this app doesn’t have split screen multitasking functionality. 2) I should be able to attach documents that are saved in the Files to email replies. As far as I can tell the email attachment functionality only works with documents that are saved to the drive and even then I don't think you can attach the document so much as share it from the drive. The only way to attach documents from files it share from the files app which always starts it as a new email. This is not great for continued collaboration and functionality. Please fix.
Please fix signature issue
by Joezerr on 2018/09/21 17:47
In terms of basic functionality, the app works well enough for me. However, an issue I have recently run into (and which apparently has been a long-standing complaint by other users) is the fact that the signature appears at the bottom of an entire conversation thread (quoted text) by default. On the web, there is an option to make it so the signature appears at the end of your reply BEFORE quoted text, but this option is not available in the app. There are reviews from the end of 2017 and earlier this year complaining about this issue, and I have seen forum posts online regarding this issue going back even a bit further than that. While this may not be a problem for some users, it can be very frustrating for other users who use Gmail for professional/business communications, so I believe this issue warrants greater attention from the Google team than it is currently being given.
Emptying Folders
by Buddy Gulley on 2018/06/10 08:29
I would really love to give five out of five, but there is one issue I just can't get past. Why is it that Gmail doesn't have an empty inbox option? It's hard to delete 23,000* messages. If there is something that I missed I would appreciate being corrected so I can correct my rating. It is that important to me. Google has made switching from phone to phone one of the most regrettable tasks that no one looked forward to doing, even if they did like their new phones, to being as easy as signing into an account.....literally. Getting back on track, if there is not a way to empty all your Folders other than deleting your account, I would appreciate it if this matter could be looked into and a solution to this problem that is faithful Gmail users run into on a daily basis. Thank you. Alan M. Herzberg Jr.
Awesome email service
by AutumnDay_ on 2018/03/24 15:22
I love Gmail. I’ve used it for over 10yrs probably over 15 if I really think about it. I have never had any issues with any gmail account of mine. I absolutely LOVE that I can have google docs connected with my gmail. Everything is in 1 place, google calendar also is connected to my account so when I get email confirmations from work I can immediately just have that info placed in the calendar and have a reminder set with pure ease, and lastly I love that it’s connected to google drive. I keep ALL of my important documents that are complete plus all of my photos. Unlimited storage FOR FREE. You can’t go wrong. All of their apps work flawlessly together. It has made me staying organized in each of these areas incredibly simple. I couldn’t be happier.
Bring back the cursor when doing replies
by Peter from So Cal on 2018/05/01 16:24
I used the GMail app all day long on my iOS devices. One thing that has bugged me for awhile has been the missing cursor when you do a reply. Typically in most email apps when you do a reply the cursor will be at the top and the on screen keyboard shows. Sometime ago GMail also behaved this way but they took it out. Now when you do a reply you have to tap where you want to type, which sometimes you just can’t tap in the exact place you want so it’s frustrating. A couple of days ago while visiting with my 80 years step father he said he can’t reply to anyone anymore in GMail and I immediately knew what his issue was and I was correct. He said Google was stupid for doing that, how’s anyone supposed to know to do that? Please Google, fix this for all the frustrated senior citizens that want to reply to their kids and grandchildren.
Notifications need fixing!
by KuxKvngAlex on 2017/10/19 18:54
I absolutely love this app. It’s very useful for me having the different accounts that I do. I use them for separate things. (School, work, etc.) And usually I will receive an update on the things I need to be updated, until recently, I’ll get a notification on my iPhone with the number next to it that usually indicates how many emails are unread in my primary list on my emails. But, I’ve been searching and searching through my different emails just to figure out that the notification on the app on my home screen, never went away from the email that I’ve already read! Please fix this issue. This might seem crazy, but I actually do have really bad OCD and having the numbers only be on this app, is literally killing my mind. Please have this fixed...
Good, but not as good as Inbox
by emttim on 2019/01/03 04:58
I loved Gmail. Then I tried Inbox back when Google first came out with it. I soon deleted Gmail. Now that they are doing away with Inbox, I’d love to see these things come over to Gmail: Swiping emails in Inbox gave you the option of both Delete AND archive. I would love that on Gmail. Archiving whole categories is amazing. I could scroll thru my emails in a category, read what I wanted, deleted or save to a tag/folder what I wanted, then back out of the category and archive the whole thing. Brilliant. No more selecting every individual email for archive or deletion. It was the key to keeping a tidy Inbox. This is really something I’d love to see in the Gmail App. Having more auto categories for Shopping, Finance, etc were very nice. I’d love to see more categories be brought to Gmail as a whole. Lastly, it was wonderful to see my trips categorized automatically. This was a great feature that I will sorely miss. Being able to have all my reservations for a business trip or vacation quickly available rather than having to search for a specific email while at the counter was wonderful. I think these few things would get me back on track to feeling like I have a good mail app again.
Second review no change deleting this crappy app
by not kkay on 2018/11/29 20:44
So months back I wrote a review about this gmail app. I stated that it really needed an upgrade. 1. Why am I receiving spam in my main inbox. When I use a regular mail app that filter it properly. 2. Why is the app so behind that it has not edit tab for all the mail you get. You should be able to edit and delete all at once. Why do I want to click on each email to delete it. The app seems to be stuck in the stone ages. 3. The setting menu is bare why even have one. It does nothing to help you be able to organize your email properly. After giving this app months of use and hoping a review would make an update happen. I’m over it and deleting it and going back to my original mail app. It’s no point in a gmail app don’t waste your time. Unless you want to risk opening spam mail by accident. Because you wouldn’t think something like that would get through to your inbox.
Serious bug
by Arynez on 2018/05/16 19:38
This app has a serious issue on iPhone X that needs resolving ASAP. I realized a few weeks ago that I would get gmail notifications but as soon as I’d hold the phone in front of me the notification would suddenly disappear completely rather than expanding to show its content. I’d then go into the gmail app and wouldn’t find any new emails. It wouldn’t happen every time and but was happening frequently. This continued until I started missing important emails. So I looked around and found all of them in the TRASH. I had never deleted any of them. I didn’t even know that I had received those emails. but there is something with the facial recognition and this app that when you have a notification for an email and you hold your phone in front of your face it just erases the notification and deletes the email. I don’t have similar problem with other email apps on my phone so this is a gmail issue rather than Apple issue.
Unsend option disappears too quick
by Alz1four3 on 2017/09/26 20:26
Overall I love Gmail, I love being able to create the different labels. I love the set up when two email accounts are merged together and the ease of switching back-and-forth. I like that I have the option to have access to both email accounts and either get all of the emails at the same time or switch back-and-forth. I prefer to switch back-and-forth because I don't want to check my school email all day every day. It is great that Google separates your promotions, social emails, and spam. My only complaint is this unsend option. The idea is great except I didn't even realize it was an option until recently and yet it's been out about a year. The option to understand disappears in one or maybe two seconds, that defeats the purpose. At least let it sit there for 20 seconds.
Mostly Good
by FrenchMonkey on 2017/10/02 15:28
Most of my opinions on Gmail app for iOS are good. I'm a mostly Mac/iPhone/iPad person in a PC/Android world. I prefer the Google set of apps because it allows me to maneuver a bit better in this dichotomy. Also I like the material design on the Google apps better. The Gmail app specifically needs improvement in viewing previous replies, especially those that come in while you might be replying. I often miss replies because of the way responses are displayed. In the app it's very difficult to figure out who replied when during an active conversation that often includes more than two responders. I do like how social and promotion emails are separated, although I'd prefer to tweak those settings. There very well may be a control but it's not obvious if there is, nor have I gone looking.
It is NOT intuitive
by Wordy-one on 2018/11/02 03:56
I’ve used email since the internet was accessed only through America Online and Prodigy. I’ve used computers since the early 1990’s. So when I say this app is both not intuitive AND a real pain... I’m not joking. I first used gmail as an additional, non employer-based email for teaching, since I was also using google drive. Much more recently, I added two additional gmail accounts for volunteer duties. The problems? 1- The icons are not self-explanatory so I have no idea what touching X or Y will do. There’s no way to “hover” over an icon to figure out what it does before I click it. 2- I set up one gmail account on my computer and then added it on both my iPad and iPhone. It alone would not coordinate with the same exact email on my computer. The other two accounts showed up. NOT good when I am thinking “no email” really means “no email”. Nope - it only meant I didn’t get the emails that I found (two weeks later!) In the gmail account on the computer. 3- I sent out 6 mass mailings on that account today. I know they went out because one of the two included a BCC to me. But I cannot find “trash” to find them. I cannot find them inv”send”- but I got the BCC on my AOL account. 4- I regret using gmail but I am stuck with it as it us on the newsletters I produce. So if you have other choices, try them. This app is more s pain in the ()&@ than it is worth.
Are you kidding me??
by Jen54 on 2018/02/14 18:45
There are 2 huge things wrong with the gmail app that 80% of users hate and yet google continues to do updates on the app and completely ignore these 2 very crucial problems. 1- It doesn't allow you to turn off conversation view. It is awful. It's crazy to me that Google won't listen to thousands of complaints regarding this. In my job I will use the same subject line in many different conversations. So then it groups all of those emails together. And many times important messages get lost in these lengthy "conversations". Also to make it worse, I can’t label each of the emails separately. It only allows you to label the entire “conversation” which doesn’t work for me since it groups together emails that have nothing to do with each other. 2- It won't allow you to add your signature right after your message. It adds it at the very bottom of the string of conversations making it pointless to have a signature at all. Someone would have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the whole conversation to see your signature. Who would do that?? How does google not see this as a problem? And, do they mean to put the signature at the very bottom or is this a glitch? Google stop wasting time on STUPID updates like this last one or on producing cars, and actually fix your basic problems with gmail.
Good start, Lacking Features
by Preston68* on 2018/12/13 19:40
I’m disappointed by this app for the ipad especially. I use my iPad Pro as a professional device and google apps just aren’t up to the task quite yet, especially the gmail app. Please work on updates so it can be used when multi-tasking on the iPad. Better attachment options as well would be a huge improvement since right now all that’s allowed is to attach from Drive Files and when they attach they are used as a link that needs shared as well instead of actually attaching a pdf/photo. Other then that the way the inbox and multiple accounts work is great. The fact that the signature from desktop apps is carried over is outstanding as well! Please please please just update the app to better support iPad work, multi-tasking, and attachment options/drag and drop from other apps.
Love GMAIL...However,
by beckywfisher on 2018/11/07 19:26
I swear by gmail for its’ spam filtering and the organized way it looks compared to using other email platforms. BUT- It is soooo frustrating how difficult it is to access gmail CONTACTS through the mobile app. Even when I go through the loop holes of logging in through the web browser on my phone, I still can’t access it. I select “go to contacts” and it refreshes back to the same page endlessly. I also really don’t like how the FORWARD EMAIL option is not in plan sight. Nor is the reply option. What the heck? I have to search around and remember that the 3 little dots at the top right of the email will show me those options. WHY? The basic function of emailing is replying and forwarding communications to others. Why is the gmail app so terribly “simplified” that it’s so hard to use and find what you need just to function quickly and efficiently?
'Unread' is broken and sending emails doesn't work sometimes
by kryptomicron on 2018/05/08 13:39
I have been relying on this app to take notes. It *was* pretty handy to be able to send myself an email, even when I didn't have access to the Internet via WiFi or cell service. That no longer works. (And the new 'sending' UI is an extraneous awfulness that, at least, visually indicates that this now doesn't work.) Worse than that tho is that sending emails, to myself or anyone else either, *also* doesn't work sometimes. I've got several emails in my 'Sent' list with nice little spinning indicators helpfully informing me that this app doesn't send emails very well anymore. That's kind of an important feature for an email app tho. I guess I can't complain since it's free! Maybe Google's prodding me to migrate to another service. Oh yeah, the 'Unread' list is basically just a dishonest 'Everything' list. That's discouraging! The emails I receive are already boringly repetitive as-is.

Double-tap selection scrolling is broken on iPhone SE
by Farhanible on 2019/02/16 04:57
The double-tap selection scrolling is broken on iPhone SE. The scrolling speed for minute movements of the cursor is so fast that it makes the feature quite literally unusable. The app very frequently displays incorrect formatting for pasted text. These formatting anomalies are visible once the email is sent and then viewed in a web-browser. It just seems like the QA hard passed on testing this app.
Inbox is a lot better
by markahco78 on 2019/02/16 02:43
Please add the Trips feature from google Inbox. What a simple and awesome feature. Inbox is awesome. Please save it, or at least bring over more of the functionality to gmail.

Sent emails
by SuziCap on 2019/02/15 19:29
Once you reply to an email, the whole thread goes into ‘sent’ file and you can no longer see the email, it should continue to be in the inbox, it’s so annoying because it’s hard to find and file if need be. This needs to be fixed!
Very basic
by Cybersea on 2019/02/15 18:56
This is a decent email client, but that’s the best I can say. I went back to Gmail after discovering that Inbox is ending. I really loved Inbox, and I’m SO DISAPPOINTED that they are getting rid of it without updating the Gmail client significantly with the major featured that Inbox had. This is just a list of emails from all addresses just jumbled together with NO organization at all. Do yourself a favor and check out Spark. Best so far. Also - and I guess this is an iOS interaction issue - it replaces my apostrophes with question marks. No other email client does that, and it’s REALLY annoying. Sorry Gmail. You’ve gotta step it up.
Huge Leap Forward
by Evan Collins on 2019/02/15 16:09
The latest redesigned Gmail is a massive improvement over the previous version. I loved Inbox and am happy to see some of my favorite features integrated neatly into Gmail. The unified inbox feature with easy media access is amazing. Awesome, thank you!
Liked INBOX more
by Vikky0201 on 2019/02/15 15:38
I liked how the inbox app works. Not just the snooze or nudge but overall on showing the payments, travel info and more. Sad to know inbox is out.
Decent app
by MB1742 on 2019/02/15 13:53
The Gmail app is still the best way to manage stars and labels on your messages, but it lacks a lot of basic features found in other apps. Swipe options need to be customizable. All Inboxes should not be limited to Everything; it should also show Starred and Unread.
Doesn’t integrate easily with other apps
by NickiyyyG on 2019/02/15 12:49
The gmail app limits the sources of attachments to basically your camera roll and google drive. That’s nice, but I use a lot of other apps google.
Nice look

I get enough spam without adds from my mail app
by cosmo132 on 2019/02/15 03:19
The adds are the dumbest idea ever! Deleted the app. I already work hard to remove spam from my email why would I want an app that introduces additional advertising for stuff I don’t want? Or even for stuff I do want?
Update on 2-6-19 is terrible
by birdfeathers on 2019/02/14 23:04
The app now looks like your web login, but you cannot log out and can no longer switch easily between google accounts! Talk about non-functional. Don’t update!!!
Wow
by Jriddle_7622093 on 2019/02/14 22:39
It’s horrible i can’t see any of my emails. i have to delete the app and then download it again to see my emails.
Inbox has more features
by Ewalczuk on 2019/02/14 22:04
Too bad Inbox is going away. I’ll miss “Trips”, “Finance” and “Purchases” labels/features. Any way you could add them to Gmail?? It would be greatly appreciated!
I want INBOX app NOT Gmail!!!
by Kugirl07 on 2019/02/14 21:59
I have never liked the Gmail app. Inbox does exactly what I want my email to do. I love the bundling functionality and the ability to move multiple messages with one swipe. I especially love the bundling with the trip and purchases and that I can see just new messages within a certain label and don’t have to view AGAIN the ones I have saved unless I search for them specifically. Please do not force me to use the Gmail app! Please, please keep INBOX alive!!!
Works great beyond freezes
by apreut on 2019/02/14 18:51
Like the Gmail app for iPhone XR in its layout and functions but it freezes up almost three times a week which is annoying.
No connection bar shows after refresh everytime on v5.0.190113
by Amar Mak on 2019/02/14 17:26
The app is pretty simple and easy to use with simultaneous mail delivery on multiple signed in devices. It automatically sorts emails into categories like social, promotions, etc and filters spam. There were crashes for the app while adding attachments from recently added attachments list, but not sure if it is fixed in this version.
Get with the times
by dyllly3423 on 2019/02/14 17:26
One should be able to swipe right to mark an email read. It’s pretty much an industry standard these days. Even the terrible Blackberry email app I have to use for work has this function. Software engineers: I know this is easy to change, please fix
This app doesn’t work
by the-realness on 2019/02/14 16:17
I got the app thinking that it would help me, but it doesn’t work at all. I never received any of the emails sent to me for work
Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke!
by jspot69 on 2019/02/14 14:52
You guys obviously did not listen to your customers. I loved the old app, but you changed it. You fixed something that didn’t need to be fixed! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I’m ready to close my account after 10 years and go to another provider that “keeps it simple and easy to use”.
Great app with some glaring holes
by jheiselman on 2019/02/14 13:31
The app works great. It's far more responsive than the web site and I like it much better than the Apple Mail app. However, I can't control whether or not emails are classified as Important or not. The functionality is there in the Android app, but missing here. And now that I can't manage notifications based on Labels anymore, it's a huge issue. If I select Important only, I get stuff I don't want and miss stuff I do want since I can't train it. If I select High Priority, it seems to rely on the sender setting that flag. If I select everything, we'll, then it's just way too much. Having to find and use a computer to manage this is not OK in this day and age.

Horrible for iPhones
by Emma23Stanley on 2019/02/14 06:28
I switched to gmail from my yahoo. Took me for ever to switch over all my accounts and all the other places and people that had my old email address to my new gmail and there are still a lot more. I don’t have access to a desktop, but the gmail app had good reviews, but didn’t take long to find out that you can’t access your contacts while in your inbox or sending and it won’t let you add new contacts from a recently received email and that’s just a start to the problems I had. I spent even more time googling my problems to see if there was a way to fix it. From what I read the android version works great and doesn’t have any problems it’s just the version for iOS that everyone seemed to have the same complaints. So now I have to go research other email apps that support gmail to make sure they have the same time. Hopefully they make a update to fix it because I liked most of the other features and would like to use it. Again every comment or review I read who had androids didn’t have those problems so it just seems the iOS version needs a little work
Notification sound

No multitasking

No multitasking or split screen on iPad! Seriously Google? What a joke! Deleting this and using Airmail
Will not allow you to sign in.
by DAC zero on 2019/02/14 00:51
After downloading the app it would not let me sign in stating “cannot connect”. Disappointed because in the past there was no issues. However, Google you have always been good at fixing issues promptly so I am still a fan of your work.
Please fix new update

What the heck?!?
by dyan007 on 2019/02/13 18:02
What’s going on here??? I thought maybe gmail had been discontinued in favor of google’s inbox app, but I saw an invitation today that I should get gmail because inbox was being discontinued in March and gmail has added new features like snooze. Okay...so I reloaded it, but it’s still giving me a “no connection” screen when I select sign in on the cover page. It’s just that in a loop. There’s no options to fix it. I’d like to see if gmail has improved. I had it before and deleted it in favor of Spark which has a really nice setup and great features. However, I don’t get get any access to edit/delete folders or filters which the gmail inbox does give me. Even though, it’s unpleasant to use, I keep it around for the situations where I need to organize. Spark has both google email apps outstripped by far with folders being the only exception. I have no idea how this app gets so many good reviews unless it’s just simple name recognition. Edited to add: I’m still getting warnings that Inbox is going away and invitations to get gmail. I’ve loaded and deleted the app several times and never get past the “no connection” screen but everything else on my phone is working fine.
Littered with ads
by Zfgggdgetygjjtddfdr on 2019/02/13 16:58
Google has lost their mind in regards to advertising. They constantly jam 2-3 ads in your inbox and disguise them as emails. Uninstalled
Options are lacking
by Newly Retired instagramer on 2019/02/13 06:45
I’ll start by saying I love gmail, but the app is terrible. There is no flexibility and it lacks so many features that other email apps offer. It is clunky to use and not intuitive at all. This one needs a scrap and restart.
Need “delete all” in Gmail app for Promo/Social folder....
by Jo Request on 2019/02/13 05:29
I am previous Google Inbox user. With increasing promotion/social emails, it is nice feature that gmail has to seperated emails by folder: Primary, Promotion and Social. However, one of the main functionalities that users uses frequently is delete all. In “Inbox” app, when you see new emails in “Promotion” folder, you could hold the “promotion” in Inbox view, and you could delete all the new emails in that promotion. Currently, in gmail app, the user has to delete the emails one at a time. This is a very tedious process for the user as on a given day I get 20/30 emails in social folder. Please consider adding this function in the next gmail mobile app. Thank you.
Exceptional
by Kingster84 on 2019/02/13 05:19
I generally enjoy this email app. Being able to sync many accounts no matter the host is very nice. Only thing I wish was different, is the ability to select multiple messages and delete all at once. Instead of having to swipe every single message you want to delete.
Forced to Switch?
by Arrca on 2019/02/13 04:08
I do Not like being forced to use this instead of Inbox. It is clunkier and less intuitive. But Mostly I just don’t like having the choice taken away from me.
New Update feels unorganized.
by Rolando V. on 2019/02/13 03:55
I could switch to my different emails in less than a second. This one takes a little longer.
Swipe to snooze option like Inbox
by Anthony_3446 on 2019/02/13 02:37
Since you’re taking away Inbox, can you add the Snooze option when you swipe an email to the right like you can in Inbox? Right now swiping both left and right archives an email which seems redundant function.
Archive?
by ihatearchiveswipe on 2019/02/12 23:03
PLEASE change the archive swipe completely. I have lost SO MANY IMPORTANT WORK EMAILS.

I’m an eighty year old Grandma and everything was fine until something generated these obnoxious emails about two months ago. I talked to Apple but they couldn’t help.

Difficult, barebones email access
by Jmcbango on 2019/02/12 19:56
UI is wonky at best, asinine at worst. No mark all as read, no mark as read at all in fact. The only way to clear notifications is to manually open each email one by one or mark and delete emails. Swiping emails left or right serves the same function of archiving the message, rather than marking it as read or giving the option to flag or move the message as one would come to expect from experience with apple’s native mail app. The only positive thing I can say about it is that email composition is convenient and easy to execute. Otherwise, it’s a sad excuse for a mail client from one of the largest tech companies in the world.

Great App but Bug
by OhhSnapItsMikeyy on 2019/02/12 18:25

by imonlyreviewingbcimannoyed on 2019/02/12 14:30
Great until as of late. Keeps crashing every time I try to open the app. I deleted it and re-downloading it only for it to be okay that night and back to how it was the next morning.

Why the white washed look? Make it stop. The new update is TRASH!! I wish I didn’t rely so much on this friggin app otherwise it would be deleted.
Stopped working
by grassisgreen2 on 2019/02/12 04:29
Normally this app is great, especially with the new update to see all inboxes together. However, with this update it has more or less completely stopped working. I’ll get notifications that then don’t show up in my inbox unless I use the search tool, emails that won’t delete or constantly show up as unread, and emails that said they sent but don’t seem to ever been received. I’m hoping this is some other problem or a bug that can be quickly fixed, otherwise I’ll be deleting and going back to apple mail.
All inbox
by Peanut(9700)••••• on 2019/02/12 01:55

A Less Functional Version of Inbox
by Kjg05 on 2019/02/11 21:10
It's like I upgraded from Blu-Ray to VCR. Bundling isn't the same and it feels like a step back. Running parallel programs and then closing one isn't new to Google but I'm sure disappointed with how this Inbox closing has gone.

by NHC35 on 2019/02/11 17:56
The app has not been registering for weeks any changes made on the desktop. Feedback was sent to Gmail a few weeks ago and none of the updates have fixed the problem. If I delete/move an email on my computer I shouldn’t have make the same deletion/move on the app. It’s extremely frustrating and a waste of my time.

Why is this replacing Inbox?
by MrsHHTeacher321 on 2019/02/11 03:03
It’s really annoying to not have a select all button, especially within a category like promos. I don’t want to erase 80 emails one at a time every day. Inbox was much better because you could scroll, pin anything you wanted to save, and erase everything else with one button. I like having my inbox app show no new emails. It feels like I can never achieve that in this app. When Google Inbox goes away, I’m switching to Outlook. They at least have a “select all” feature. This app is the biggest waste of time.
What is going on with this app??????

Annoying Ads
by chachalee333 on 2019/02/10 21:40
Just updated to this app. Now I get these annoying ad banners. They look like emails but no way to click unsubscribe. Whatever you click takes you to their website. Not fair! Checked in help and there’s no way to stop them. Can’t even mark them as spam. I will look for a new email.

by Adakockenzh on 2019/02/10 17:52
I’m on the iPhone XS and the preview of the promotions folder sometimes overlays text on top of the email below it. Also the number of unread emails on the left panel account circle covers up part of the account name below it. Please fix these glitches.

Inbox by Google is Better
by Bradical55 on 2019/02/10 00:49
Inbox has more features than Gmail - sweep feature, more intuitive swipe features, etc. I went back to Gmail when they started this campaign for the “new Gmail experience” but came right back to Inbox once I saw the lack of features I do not want inbox to go away because this app is inferior
Why would I download yet a third mail app to have to maintain.
by Datamaniac on 2019/02/09 21:21
Apple mail May not sort but all my mail accounts are in one place for instant visibility. When I want to do more like manage events or meetings or have sorts I simply use Outlook. So two mail clients are enough Google. Stick with what you know best - serving up knowledge. I respect you in That arena. Mail - not so much. If you are going to mimic Hotmail and Outlook then just go the extra mile. Give All the bells and whistles AND support all the competitors email as well in ONE app. THAT my friend is the winner. :)

I hate this app
by Rhybread on 2019/02/09 02:57
I’m a devoted user of the Inbox app but since it will no longer exist after March I decided to try and get used to this one. I hate everything about it. I don’t want to be notified of every promotional email that hits my inbox, I hate seeing that red circle notification on my screen thinking it’s something important when it’s really not, but this app gives me notifications for every little thing. I can’t figure out how to make it stop. Inbox was so much better, bring it back and throw this one away
Not happy with switch from Inbox
by Shantasticz on 2019/02/09 02:18
There are so many small things that inbox did that gmail isn’t doing. The biggest one for me is bundling emails that’s I’ve selected to go in specific categories. The reason I even got inbox was to avoid having to read through a barrage of emails to figure out important ones and move them all around everyday. I am sorely disappointed.

by disappointed1234--** on 2019/02/08 22:18
I hate the iPhone mail app so I was so happy when I found gmail! I’ve loved how it displays my mail in folders rather than just a list of emails. This new app takes away that one feature that really sold me on the app. I really wish I had a choice rather than being forced to switch to this new app.... but I guess I’ll just use the iPhone mail app from now on.

Missing basic functions
by Tokyo bound on 2017/09/22 21:08
I swiped on an email heading and the email disappeared. It never told me what it was doing with the email. Did it delete it? Did it archive it? Did it forward it to my grandma? I had no idea. So I looked for the undo button. Oh, there ISN'T one. I shook the phone, which works in EVERY OTHER APP, it's a basic iPhone function. Nope. That didn't work either. I found the email still there under "All Mail" but there was no way to undo the archive and put it back into my primary folder, at least no way that was immediately intuitive. So that was super frustrating. Also, there is no "mark unread from here" in an email conversation. So if I mark something as unread, the entire email chain gets marked as unread. This is ridiculous. I sometimes have conversations with clients that have 50 emails back and forth. I don't want to have to go through them all again. Unfortunately, the built-in iPhone mail app does the same thing. But at least it has an undo function. I have gotten to where I rarely check email on my phone because there isn't yet a good app to deal with it. It used to be simple and it used to work. Now with all the folders and functions, replacing basic functionality, it just makes it a pain. Companies always try to fix things that aren't broken and just break them in the process. So this app is deleted. And I will go back to using the iPhone mail app to scan the previews and go to my Mac to actually reply.
Limited usefulness
by robotv on 2017/12/13 20:33
I like the email notifications on my home screen, but it seems a bit arbitrary what emails it will alert me about. Most of the time I will get alerts if a certain person sends me an email, and sometimes I just don’t get an alert at all, and I end up missing their email for a few days because I expect I will get an alert like I always do when they me send me mail. What really bites my cheese is that you can only look back about 100 emails or so when scrolling through your folders. So unless you religiously check all of your folders every day, it is very likely that you will find yourself in the situation while trying to catch up with mail that the stupid thing just won’t load any more emails for you. In that case you have to use the web client on a computer to actually be able to access all of your mail. If you are forcing me to use a computer to read my mail, that defeats the purpose of having a mail reading app! I am on my feet and out and about all day, so I really need to be able to catch up on allll my mail from my mobile device. Since this app doesn’t allow me to do that, I have fallen woefully behind on my email, to the point where I can’t catch up, making email in general pretty useless for me. In other words, gmail has kind of killed email for me. :/ Please fix this!
NO WAY!!!
by Jseabaugh25 on 2018/10/24 14:40
Just looking at the reviews is enough!! But why would anyone that has had ad much TROUBLE with you as I have even try a update??? Your contact oh wait feedback is a JOKE!!! All started with the email from YOU!!! Then you just cant seen to help do anything to fix it!!!! Your latest update says INBOX is that a JOKE?????? What inbox I’ve used gmail for years and you WERE THE BEST!!!! Then came the day where you just changed EVERYTHING nothing works like it’s supposed to why is it that nobody got a say in this STUPID CHANGE??? Not only did you change it completely You also decide WHERE our emails go!!!! Just WOW acting like Facebook much????? Nothing I’ve seen to fix it you put IMPORTANT emails in promotions I SEVERAL times a day move them back to primary and you would think that they would start going there but. No so I use more and more data and my time and more moving them than I do going through them and doing whatever it is I need to do!!!! This started with the ADS and you send those 15 to 20 a day!!!! No unsubscribe have to click the stupid why this add and go from there and STILL get the same adds!!!!! I’ve all but took everything off to STOP this and NOTHING has changed!!!!! The links you provide that you say to use to stop the ads DO NOT WORK!!!!!!! Are you going to FIX THESE PROBLEMS or just sit there and think of ways to mess it up more like so many of the other sites so wish I could give zero stars
SUPERIOR SERVICE
by Alvertes on 2018/06/13 07:45
I have been using email for quite some time now and I have found Gmail to be far superior than any other email service I have used in the past. The ability to ORGANIZE important emails with labels and stay on top of my inbox and archives gives me a personal edge. For professional documentation of conversations with Government Officials and other Professional Organizations, I have been able to quickly retrieve important conversations that have supported my position and even helped me win disputes. Speaking of “search ability”, there have been occasions where I may have forgotten an individual’s EXACT name or exact email address, but knew I had it somewhere; all I had to do was put an “@“ symbol in the search box and a “portion” of the organization’s name or something else in the search criteria and the correct email address or variations thereof “surfaces from the ETHER” which makes life so much easier being able to find ALL CONVERSATIONS associated with that email address! I can then properly label or categorized all correspondences with that email address for future reference. KEEP THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX WITH YOUR IMPROVEMENTS AND UPGRADES, IT IS WORKING!!!
Almost perfect, but two major flaws
by MicReh on 2018/11/02 19:19
I have been using Gmail since forever, but the app fails to do two things that you can do on the computer. One, if you click on the star, you can only make it yellow or keep it blank. But I use this feature so that I can alert my front desk which items are for them, which are for me, which things need to be printed, etc. On the computer you can make the star turn into a number of different colors or shapes, but the app is only super basic. It almost renders the entire experience useless because after I go through all my emails on my app in the morning, I still have to go onto the computer and go through the whole process again to flag each email appropriately. Two, on the computer, you can click that little square box that highlights all of the emails under the category and then do what you need to do with all of them. For example, you can highlight all the stupid emails in the promotion tab and delete them with one click on the computer, but on the app you have to do it item by item. This is very very annoying. Gmail, come on already. You map the entire planet, but you can’t do these two things? Seriously.
Severely limited functionality
by bigshot_bob on 2018/08/27 14:10
I use my iPad for work, as I need to take high resolution videos and have quick access to apps. The Gmail app has such terribly limited usability in key areas. First, it is crazy that I cannot create bulleted or numbered lists. This seems like a key component to writing succinct emails and I am not sure why this is not included. Second, I cannot copy and paste tables from other Google apps and keep the formatting! We send programs to clients that we create in Google sheets, but we do not need to send the entire sheet at one time, only a part. You simply cannot do this without creating an entirely new sheet, and then sharing it with them, which is simply not functional. I would rather be able to copy and paste the section of the sheet that is necessary to use. Lastly, the emails I send from my iPad do not have the same formatting as the desktop site. Again, I am at a loss as to why this is the case. We have a specific signature that we need to use in order to send protected information, and I have to set this signature up again instead of it carrying over from my desktop accessibility. The only good thing about this app is that I can access my email from it. However, it severely limits my ability to send useful emails and this kills my productivity during work hours with my iPad.
Why does gmail have a web browser?
by p m 8 8 on 2019/01/23 16:13
Why does this app have a built in web browser? If you click on a link in an email a little window comes up that asks if you want to open it in chrome or safari. I don't have chrome installed because I feel that google harvests enough information about me as it is. So i select open in safari. However when I do this it does not open safari. It opens this miniature web browser that is baked into gmail, there is a button on the bottom of the screen that forwards you to safari. But its too late. The link has been opened in a google made web browser. This is annoying and deceitful. If its a link that can only be used once, then opening it in this mini browser has just ruined the link so that I would have do whenever it is in this built in browser. I would say its okay if I could just delete all cookies and such from this mini bowser but there is no option. And even even if i could delete the information its too late because google already saw what I was doing in that session. I can only assume that google now has any and all information that has been put into the mini browser. I would use a different email app however google has made it so that I cant use any other email app with a gmail account... so I guess I’m just screwed.
No Connection errors
by cpoagsc on 2017/09/27 03:01
Revision: I’m an idiot and this app is great. The reason I had trouble with the app when not on WiFi was because data was turned off for the app in my phone’s settings. Changed my low rating to a 5-star. This app is completely useless for me on iPhone. It never connects and reports "no connection" at the bottom of the screen while every other app on the phone has no trouble connecting. It is only this app that has problems connecting. I've followed all help and forum posts I've found and they're pretty useless. I've logged out and back in (sometimes it won't even let me log back in, giving me the "no connection" error). I've deleted and reinstalled the app many times with no success. And yes, Google, I'm sure I'm using the correct password. Google needs to resolve the "no connection" error issue with an update rather than just advising people to check their password or make sure they're connected to the internet (when every other app on the device works fine).
Great functionality with few flaws
by Evil on the Wwweb on 2018/04/23 16:10
In the corporate world I am forced to use Microsoft Outlook as my primary email client. In the private sector, i use Gmail for almost everything else. Gmail has become a standard that other email sites attempt to emulate. The integration of its own suite of office programs has eliminated the need for more costly applications for senior users and youngsters. Google has learned from Apple in placing Gmail and Google Docs on entry level tablets and Chrome Books. I could continue this thread but I mentioned “flaws” in the title. Some people complain about the steady stream of bug fixes and see it as evidence of how poorly Gmail and other Google products were written. This is a false impression. What it does show is the speed with which the technical teams that Support Gmail and Google are adapting to the ever-changing environment of hackers spammers and other nefarious groups that are attempting to disrupt our lives. Most things that appear as flaws are really undocumented tools. —- 30 —-
Warning about adding emails to your gmail
by Cuchabybaby on 2018/01/20 16:24
You will run out of memory faster because the other accounts you can add will add to your memory with ALL google products. I was enticed to add my yahoo account to a gmail address last year. What happened is that I’ve had gmail since 2005 and love it. I lost my free “legacy” added memory because I had to upgrade or I’d lose my emails.I spent hours going through my messages and deleting them because I received warnings if I didn’t upgrade soon, messages would disappear and if I did upgrade I’d lose my free space. I upgraded and I have my memory back on Apple products but for about a month or two on my Windows 10 laptop that I use for business, it was still showing that warning. Eventually it synced. So before you put all your emails in your gmail feed, check out if the “new gmail”will eat your memory and force an upgrade $$$$ before memory runs out and it’s pay to play. I’ve been a huge fan but I didn’t understand the takeaway of legacy memory. It was supposed to be lifetime but if I added on, it was gone and that’s what happened to “do no harm”
Best Free Email Tool
by SZTC on 2017/11/16 11:37
To me, nothing beats MS Outlook for ease, functionality, integration, calendar, etc. However, Gmail is generally easy, they don’t bombard users with ads, the app is terrific - it’s simply straightforward and not overly complicated or engineered like many tech organizations tend to do. Meaning, keep it simple and friendly to all generations. The cons are; can’t create or change the name of a folder via the app; no calendar invite (accept, decline, tentative feature), add alert to your smartphone calendar (or at least an easy to find and use); Gmail arbitrarily disappears from Google Home page. Again, I’m happy with the app, just spoiled with Outlook and most corporate servers now block all online email tools for security reasons. Google and Google Chrome - to me - are hands down the cleanest and best. Other browsers pepper a user with tons of pop ups, videos... I know my mother and in laws fear using other browsers. I hope Google remembers that they can continue to dominate and grab more market share by building their tools for all generations. Fast, simple, obvious and easy.
Pretty sad response time from Google
by Vandill on 2017/10/12 12:21
This is a pretty good app by Google. Currently there is a problem that I'm seeing with badge notifications not properly updating. I've tried to remove the app from my phone and reinstall it but that didn't solve the issue. Started with iOS11 so I'm guessing it is related. I would like an option to mark something as read from the notification screen instead of, or in addition to archiving. Maybe I'm alone in this but I don't really use the archive feature. Anyway, 3 stars until the badges issue is resolved. It lets you check your email so it does its job. Nothing flashy or special. Like most of Google's apps. It's functional which is good enough. Dropping rating to 1 star and uninstalling in a week if Google, one of the biggest tech companies in the world, can't fix a notification bug. I mean come on. I'm guessing that at least 1 guys job at Google is to care about the app working. Even if it's just 1 guy he could have already fixed this in a day. Get it together. We give you all our private information willingly and you can't have a guy fix the red badge that a 13 year old kid that is learning to make apps for the first time can edit and change?
Great mail app except for browser preference
by AEOHP on 2018/03/02 12:26
In general I like this mail app a lot. I am happy to have my inbox sorted as it is on the desktop. I wish it was easier to attach documents from “Pages” and “Files” instead of only from the camera, recent attachments and drive. But my biggest complaint is this: When I go to open a link from an email and it asks if I want to use chrome or safari, I choose safari because that is my preference on my iPhone. I switch off the little “ask me every time” button. The very next time I go to open a link from an email, it could be the exact same link one second later, the browser preference window opens again, with the button switched on. It adds an unnecessary step every time I look at things from an email. Also, my saved safari things don’t all translate over to the safari that pops up within the app. I know you want me to use chrome because it is your product, but you offer a choice so it would be nice if that choice worked 😊
Is this Really for Ages 4,5,6,and 7?
by ahmed kkhan on 2018/12/27 16:44
Hi Gmail, I love the app, but I’m kind of confused if this app is really for kids ages 4. If you scroll up to the top you will see something that says “For Ages 4 and up.” I think the Idea of having kids in elementary school and that 5,6, and 7 isn’t a very smart idea, if kids not mature enough use the app what do you think is going to happen? I personally think what's going to happen is that kids are going to get messages from random people asking for pictures of them naked or something, the 2nd thing I think is going to happen is that kids are going to message people like murderers and they might give away their address or something so that’s bad, and the last thing I think is going to happen is that kids are going to run away and meet the “love of their life” (the child predator that asked he or she to meet him or her) and get kidnapped. So I recommend you change that so parents can not get confused and let these happen to their children. Sincerely, Jeniffer.
So glad I switched to Google Mail
by Shonziola on 2018/09/12 12:14
Update: I continue to be impressed. I’ve learned the ins and outs of how Google does things, and find it vastly superior to others. I cannot tell you how nice it is to not have a mailbox full of junk and spam. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Previous review: I am so pleased with my new Google email account! I switched from hotmail about two weeks ago because I had gotten so frustrated. An account I had had for ten years. It was an intimidating thought to have to handle switching my email and handling all the changes to my financial, business, personal contacts. But I am so glad I took the leap. And your suggestions of how to create a more private and secure email were very helpful. Instead of getting about a hundred junk, phishing, spam mail I had to sort through every day, I rarely have a single one. The way Google has improved my email experience is beyond my expectations. Just wanted to say thanks!
Absolutely the best email !
by askbob on 2018/02/07 16:41
I’m 73 years old, and remember the early days of the Internet. I remember being so excited when email was available to the public. Email, even with its flaws, was so exciting and revolutionary in giving people around the world Way of communicating with each other. Junk mail became a problem almost immediately and you were given very little storage– – But I loved it! Then various email providers became available, each adding an improved feature or a new one. Then, Gmail came out. The absolute best it accurately getting rid of junk mail, givingIng an enormous amount of free storage space — to many new innovations to mention here. Granted, Manny email providers have copied and improved their email tremendously. So if you want to stay with your catch-up email provider, I understand. I’m going to stick with the proven leader in innovation and reliability — and, as you may have guessed, recommend it to all. Bob Coberg
This App Needs Some Help!
by Debhem on 2017/11/04 21:22
I’ve been using this app for several years now so I have noticed a few things that could be improved. #1. The ability to disable conversation “threads” for those of us who dislike how our emails behave when there are several responses to a particular email. #2. Recently, my Inboxes have been getting emails that are clearly Spam emails! Why is this happening? I would like to be able to select these emails, without opening them, and put them into the Spam folder. Unfortunately, I can’t select any of those emails! Currently, I have to do that from my computer instead of from my iPhone! That’s a major inconvenience! #3. Since the launch of iPhone 11.0 update, my phone alerts me that I have a new email, but it turns out that I really don’t. I end up wasting time logging on to my phone only to find out that the sound notification was erroneous. #4. As others have mentioned, the red notification flag isn’t always responsive when all new emails has been read. Fixing these issues would make my use of Gmail much more effective and enjoyable!
People Have Different Needs
by DellBell16 on 2018/07/31 04:57
I was ok with this account when I first joined a few years ago. I usually log on via my phone. When I use the library or my laptop the format seems different. Each time they make improvements I like it less. Perhaps this is not for me or I need to take some Tito arrange my account in a way that suits me, if this is possible. I am quite frustrated with it. I want to get rid of junk mail and trash. I believe I finally found out how to not have archived mail. When I open my email and ask for current mail, hundreds of old mail that I have tried many times before, appear right back in. What is going on? My daughter doesn't understand what I am trying to explain to her. Although she does ask me why I have so much mail. I would like the space on my cell phone to be freed up from those unnecessary emails. Any advice? I have not taken the time to set up a new email account someplace else. If they could help me understand how to maneuver maybe I won't have to contact all my contacts with a new mail address. Right now I hate my account!!
No it’s not missing basic functions
by bcrum2 on 2018/04/08 10:44
There is an undue function and you can move it to archive. Your main gmail settings in app allow you to determine what happens to an email when you swipe it. Default is to archive but you can also set it to delete. Both of which populate an undo button at the bottom of the screen. Also while some config settings must be done from the full web version you can determine if mails are organized in a conversation thread or individual and even still you can mark them both as a thread or individually as un read etc. I guess what I am saying is the guy whining is just suffering operator error due to him suffering mental ID 10 T errors. Seriously don’t get in a wad because you can’t be bothered to learn an app. All that said I give it a four because I feel that google has gone for form over function and that the earlier versions say from the iOS 6 or pre ice cream sandwich days was far better and far more functional.
Minimalist design, minimalist features
by Gleep52 on 2019/01/30 18:16
This is an email app by the biggest email host ever right? Why isn’t there a swipe to move feature? And the “move to” feature is buried under a menu instead of just out in the open. Everyone I know who has this app complains about this - how is it not added yet? I have yet to find any email app that doesn’t have this feature. It’s just basic email organization. Also, as with most apps sadly, developers haven’t caught on that putting the buttons at the top makes their app two handed or burdensome by hand occlusion or multiple swipes and taps to achieve the same thing if the navigation/buttons were at the bottom of the screen. Leave the top blank and empty - keep that minimal and bring the interactive parts of the app within one handed easy reach (bottom). Lastly, the shake to undo feature is missing which is a basic iPhone feature every app should be held accountable for... not sure how this made it though the App Store approval process with out “shake to undo”, but be warned - this app doesn’t have that cool and useful feature.
Notifications not working
by Keith Nerdin on 2017/10/23 14:07
I’m not sure if this is an iOS 11 issue or what, but notifications are no longer working properly. I’ve used (and loved) the gmail app for a long time, but recently it’s become a big enough pain I’m considering switching to a different app. I’m an “inbox zero” kind of guy. So when I go in and check all my emails and archive them and leave nothing in my inbox and close my app and it still shows a red badge on the gmail icon with 3 or so unread emails, it’s maddening. Sometimes I’ll pull my phone out 20 minutes later and it will still show unread emails, I’ll check, and it’ll still be zero. Ack!! Totally defeats the purpose of a badge icon with number indicators. It’s making me waste so much time, feel so inefficient, and making me question why I continue using what feels like a broken app. I close the app often, regularly keep the app and my iOS updated, and power off my phone frequently. And none of it seems to help.
Down, your out!!
by Lilnic46 on 2017/09/14 04:46
I loaded this app with my previous iPhone and was discussed with google was presenting to us as gmail!!! I already automatically get my gmail through my phones email settings. It works great except you need to make preferences on a computer. This app doesn't even allow you to group your emails into sub categories only conversations. I had given up on this program the first time I downloaded it because of how much of a pain it was. I was just prompted by my gmail to download this app for reasons that sounded good. Unfortunately when I went to the play store it showed that this app was already downloaded. If I left because I was disappointed and your updates all say the same things and don't address the problems, why would I waste my time and put it back on my phone??? My gmail that is through my phones settings for gmail is excellent. I have all the options I need!!! Why doesn't google partner with apple to get some pointers on how a good email program should behave and what it should offer!!! Terrible app!!! Don't waste your time!!!
Forced to use Gmail. Farewell Inbox.
by mattsmee on 2018/09/15 15:01
Been using Gmail since beta. Inbox came along and it quickly became the only client I used daily. I understand that without Gmail as a solid foundation/backbone, there wouldn’t be Inbox. However, Inbox’s features are not something you can just unlearned immediately. I really hope Google Gmail/Inbox Team could see this message. The feature that I will miss the most is Bundle. Behind the scene Gmail uses labels. It’s not easy to simply bring Bundle to Gmail because it already has the feature called Category, which is too similar. If there could be one feature I want to see in Gmail from Inbox is Bundle. Why? It does a very good job grouping mails (customizable) into my Bundles. I can quickly open up each, scan though mails that I care, then archive the entire bundle in one tap/click/swipe. No better/quicker way to have a clean mailbox like Bundle enables. Thank you for your service, Inbox. Farewell!
Notifications broken?
by PshThisKid on 2017/10/30 01:44
I love this app. With each update it’s become so streamlined and efficient. I love that I can switch between email accounts with ease. And as a person who constantly hits the wrong button, having an “undo” for every action is extremely helpful. I also really like being able to delete an email from the notification banner so I don’t have to waste time opening the app and reading it if it’s unimportant. My one issue has been the notifications, specifically the red badge when you have new mail. I keep a clean inbox and it’s always satisfying when I have no new mail. I’m not sure if the newest update has a mistake or maybe it’s the new iOS, but the badges have been stuck and take a few days to catch up to reflect on actual new mail. It’s frustrating to see the app icon and think “oh I have mail” then open it and find no, that is incorrect. I’m hoping the issue will be fixed soon.
Can’t secure the app or use settings properly.
by The King5625 on 2018/05/10 01:52
While this review will most likely be ignored, I figured I would let those that want a secure app to avoid Google’s Gmail app. I was downloading this app to secure my Gmail email. I was trying to see if there was an option to secure the app with Touch ID and I was unable to see all the app settings. When I went to the Google app settings I scrolled to the bottom to see if I could secure the app in the “Other settings” section. Unfortunately the “Other settings” section didn’t work. What is the point of using the Gmail app rather than the iOS mail app when neither can be secured. I work at a school and I want to secure my work email since the information contained in it is extremely sensitive and confidential. Microsoft’s Outlook app can secure itself with Touch ID why can’t Google? I can also use Microsoft’s Outlook app for my Gmail account. What’s the point of using Google’s app when Microsoft’s Outlook app is better with security? If this problem is addressed then I’ll remove this review if I can. If I can’t remove it then I’ll add another review posting the responsiveness of Google.
Overall a great app with a few flaws
by Ltrainlj33 on 2018/01/09 21:12
Gmail delivers a good email experience free of glitches and bugs that have plagued competitors that I've tested. The only issues I have with the app are: 1) too many ads 2) mediocre file attachment system. Just look at Outlook mobile. Then copy it. For example, why can't we look through the different photo albums on our iPhones when attaching photos? Instead it forces us into the Moments album only. Where's the support for attaching from other cloud services? Google drive is the only option. 3) not enough control over notifications. I'd like to be able to mute all email notifications except for messages that come from a certain person or are sent to a certain label (Google's name for inbox subfolders). Instead, the options for notifications are: all new mail, primary only or none. Why not give us more control? I only want to be notified of an email from my immediate family and a handful of others. Besides them everyone else can kindly wait until I choose to actively check my own email. I'd rather not be bombarded with constant notifications on my phone, tablet and watch for promotions, newsletters, etc.. And the "primary only" option relies on Google's ability to decide which of my messages are high priority, which Google isn't very good at. Resolve these three issues and this app gets 5 starts! Thanks!
Our real CampusWeb
by Johnny Days on 2018/04/30 13:28
It is safe to say that after all these years being on the Google platform out in a Pacific Island dot on the World Atlas, I cannot express enough gratitude for all the wonderful strides at Google Headquarters that jettisoned many useful apps today! As a public school teacher on Guam, I tried to use my Google Classroom but the ball fell at The Guam Public School systems' headquarters after several attempts not only contacting IT department, but also going physically before its appointed liaison in order to digitize my classroom. It did not go live which sucked major although no fault whatsoever on Google, Inc. Maybe one day I may learn all the different apps you've created but I crave tutorials less than 3 minutes since that is the attention span of our students today no matter where the are located. My thanks and appreciation always Google!
Not ready for Inbox users until remainder show up inline with email
by camyoshi123 on 2018/10/27 22:04
I totally get why Google is killing Inbox for Gmail. Inbox was a test bed for features that would eventually make it into Gmail, and now that the test is done, it’s much more efficient to support a single email product. I believe in the long run the long run, this will be a win/win for everybody. Unfortunately, they left out a feature that is critical to my and other users’ workflows. My email inbox is my to do list. I only look there to decide what I need to do. Inbox for Gmail engrained this workflow and it is close to flawless. Google suggests to use Tasks for a workaround. This is not close to the same. Now I have to look at two places and triage what is the most important thing to work on. With Inbox, it takes just a couple of clicks to add a reminder. Once saved, it shows up in your inbox in line with the other emails. Or you can set a future date and it will be hidden until that time. The only true workaround I’ve found is to email myself whenever I need a reminder. This takes several more steps (New email, to: me, subject: something to do, Send, when email arrives, click it and snooze until the appropriate time). This takes more effort and feels like a hacky solution. Google, please, for the love of every one of your loyal guinea pigs who helped to improve Gmail’s usability, add the reminder feature before cutting off access to Inbox!
Near perfect!
by pgib9981 on 2018/08/25 05:08
This app is very much improved, and I'm actually starting to really like it! I love that you can disable Conversation View and can easily swipe to delete/archive a message. It's colorful and easy to use, and has lots of options that it didn't use to have. There's only one thing that would really improve it... In the iPhone settings (Settings —>Notifications —>Show Previews), I'd love for there to be an option to show previews, but to only be able to see the sender while on the lock screen, and not the subject or body of the message. That's the way my old email app was, and it was so useful. (You’re able to know who’s sending the message, but don’t have to worry about other people reading it.) But other than that, I'm really loving this app! Kudos to all the people working to make it great!
NEW VERSION IS FRUSTRATING!
by AmyPiac on 2017/09/22 15:38
I procrastinated updating to the new style version for months, because I depended heavily on this app and loved it. I finally caved and have been using it for about a month now. And it just frustrates me! The badge notification for new mail doesn't always go away after all messages are read. Adding attachments is cumbersome now; it automatically imbeds them in your message and you have to individually select each to make it an actual attachment - and the app always freezes; I have to close it out and reopen it to get them attached properly. The option of "mark as unread/read" no longer exists (SINCERELY miss that). Also, if I open a new email from iPhone's drop-down notifications (banner), I can read it in the gmail app fine - but the app keeps it as unread until I re-open the app from the home screen and view the email again. I don't get it?! Those are my biggest complaints. I like just being able to swipe to delete, but that convenience isn't worth the loss of the other features and the frustration.
Best mail app in a weak field - could be awesome
by Artappstore on 2017/09/29 09:17
I’ve tried every mail app out there and while some have better features than gmail (snooze messages, Dropbox integration) most of them have fatal flaws around performance, reliability of syncing message or search changes that render them unusable- including apple’s iOS mail client. Gmail is the best of the field because it is fast and the most reliable. That said, it has a few things I’d love to see addressed to make it 5 stars: 1) Freezing - the app occasionally hangs on the message list page, especially when going from landscape to portrait mode. Sometimes it recovers, other times you have to kill it. My guess is that it’s doing a remote call and the UI is waiting on it to finish when it shouldn’t be 2) drilling into the to and from fields. Apple iOS makes this easy - you can click someone’s name to find their phone number from you contacts and call or text them. 3) replying or forwarding specific threads in messages is cumbersome. Gmail buries this action in an ellipsis when it needs its own small icon. Apples iOS app does this well 4) unified inbox, starred and sent messages for multiple accounts - all the other apps do this well 5) message snoozing - outlook for iOS and mail (fka gladly do) do this well 6) Dropbox integration for file attachments
Almost Perfect
by Yeah, You Know on 2018/02/02 14:17
The app loads very quickly, and hasn’t crashed on me yet. I manage three different e-mails as well, and it’s very easy to switch between them and see which ones have new messages. The spam and trash folders empty automatically after 30 days which is also a nice feature. The one problem I have with the app, is there is no select all button. Sometimes I will archive e-mails instead of deleting them, or will simply have them in my inbox and need to delete them. When this happens, usually I want to delete 95% of my messages in the inbox or all mail folder. It would be easier to select all and then deselect the few messages I need to keep rather than meticulously select each individual message. It’s kind of silly that you have this amazing company known for their technological prowess, but they can’t put a simple select all button in.
A truly terrible app
by Lkanapp on 2018/05/26 17:57
I don’t write reviews but the gmail team sent me email saying Big Brother had seen I wasn’t using their app, so I had to try it. I use Apple email so I will compare. I have six email accounts (3 google, yahoo, att, Apple). Apple lets me see one integrated inbox or I can choose just one. Gmail makes you switch between each one every time by selecting a tiny circle on the bottom left or three lines at the upper left. Very cumbersome. Apple uses Settings for my email accounts, all easy to use and all the same to create. Gmail makes me go through hoops to attach the other accounts and the inbox for each account is tied to one of my google accounts, so they share inboxes and I have to decide which of my 3 gmails to use and remember for the other 3. Apple lets me see all the folders of all my email accounts and select them by showing a third window pane on the left. Gmail doesn’t do this at all. The list that comes up is only for the current of my 3 gmails. No folders from other accounts. Apple pops up a window for new email that fills middle third of screen with the inbox/email shown greyed out in background, a nice reminder of what I might be creating a new email for. Gmail fills the entire screen with a new email and on my large iPad Pro it is very, very annoying and jolts me so, I have to close it to remember what I was thinking. This was all in the first five minutes. I didn’t waste any more time, so look elsewhere for an in-depth review.
Good App but certain important elements missing
by DreO_O on 2018/09/14 19:42
I like using the apps but it is missing some basic functionality. 1) Split Screen Multitasking functionality should be added to the app. I often send emails in a foreign languages and I like to have a multilingual dictionary app in the split view to check words as I write. I see no obvious reason why this app doesn’t have split screen multitasking functionality. 2) I should be able to attach documents that are saved in the Files to email replies. As far as I can tell the email attachment functionality only works with documents that are saved to the drive and even then I don't think you can attach the document so much as share it from the drive. The only way to attach documents from files it share from the files app which always starts it as a new email. This is not great for continued collaboration and functionality. Please fix.
Please fix signature issue
by Joezerr on 2018/09/21 17:47
In terms of basic functionality, the app works well enough for me. However, an issue I have recently run into (and which apparently has been a long-standing complaint by other users) is the fact that the signature appears at the bottom of an entire conversation thread (quoted text) by default. On the web, there is an option to make it so the signature appears at the end of your reply BEFORE quoted text, but this option is not available in the app. There are reviews from the end of 2017 and earlier this year complaining about this issue, and I have seen forum posts online regarding this issue going back even a bit further than that. While this may not be a problem for some users, it can be very frustrating for other users who use Gmail for professional/business communications, so I believe this issue warrants greater attention from the Google team than it is currently being given.
Emptying Folders
by Buddy Gulley on 2018/06/10 08:29
I would really love to give five out of five, but there is one issue I just can't get past. Why is it that Gmail doesn't have an empty inbox option? It's hard to delete 23,000* messages. If there is something that I missed I would appreciate being corrected so I can correct my rating. It is that important to me. Google has made switching from phone to phone one of the most regrettable tasks that no one looked forward to doing, even if they did like their new phones, to being as easy as signing into an account.....literally. Getting back on track, if there is not a way to empty all your Folders other than deleting your account, I would appreciate it if this matter could be looked into and a solution to this problem that is faithful Gmail users run into on a daily basis. Thank you. Alan M. Herzberg Jr.
Awesome email service
by AutumnDay_ on 2018/03/24 15:22
I love Gmail. I’ve used it for over 10yrs probably over 15 if I really think about it. I have never had any issues with any gmail account of mine. I absolutely LOVE that I can have google docs connected with my gmail. Everything is in 1 place, google calendar also is connected to my account so when I get email confirmations from work I can immediately just have that info placed in the calendar and have a reminder set with pure ease, and lastly I love that it’s connected to google drive. I keep ALL of my important documents that are complete plus all of my photos. Unlimited storage FOR FREE. You can’t go wrong. All of their apps work flawlessly together. It has made me staying organized in each of these areas incredibly simple. I couldn’t be happier.
Bring back the cursor when doing replies
by Peter from So Cal on 2018/05/01 16:24
I used the GMail app all day long on my iOS devices. One thing that has bugged me for awhile has been the missing cursor when you do a reply. Typically in most email apps when you do a reply the cursor will be at the top and the on screen keyboard shows. Sometime ago GMail also behaved this way but they took it out. Now when you do a reply you have to tap where you want to type, which sometimes you just can’t tap in the exact place you want so it’s frustrating. A couple of days ago while visiting with my 80 years step father he said he can’t reply to anyone anymore in GMail and I immediately knew what his issue was and I was correct. He said Google was stupid for doing that, how’s anyone supposed to know to do that? Please Google, fix this for all the frustrated senior citizens that want to reply to their kids and grandchildren.
Notifications need fixing!
by KuxKvngAlex on 2017/10/19 18:54
I absolutely love this app. It’s very useful for me having the different accounts that I do. I use them for separate things. (School, work, etc.) And usually I will receive an update on the things I need to be updated, until recently, I’ll get a notification on my iPhone with the number next to it that usually indicates how many emails are unread in my primary list on my emails. But, I’ve been searching and searching through my different emails just to figure out that the notification on the app on my home screen, never went away from the email that I’ve already read! Please fix this issue. This might seem crazy, but I actually do have really bad OCD and having the numbers only be on this app, is literally killing my mind. Please have this fixed...
Good, but not as good as Inbox
by emttim on 2019/01/03 04:58
I loved Gmail. Then I tried Inbox back when Google first came out with it. I soon deleted Gmail. Now that they are doing away with Inbox, I’d love to see these things come over to Gmail: Swiping emails in Inbox gave you the option of both Delete AND archive. I would love that on Gmail. Archiving whole categories is amazing. I could scroll thru my emails in a category, read what I wanted, deleted or save to a tag/folder what I wanted, then back out of the category and archive the whole thing. Brilliant. No more selecting every individual email for archive or deletion. It was the key to keeping a tidy Inbox. This is really something I’d love to see in the Gmail App. Having more auto categories for Shopping, Finance, etc were very nice. I’d love to see more categories be brought to Gmail as a whole. Lastly, it was wonderful to see my trips categorized automatically. This was a great feature that I will sorely miss. Being able to have all my reservations for a business trip or vacation quickly available rather than having to search for a specific email while at the counter was wonderful. I think these few things would get me back on track to feeling like I have a good mail app again.
Second review no change deleting this crappy app
by not kkay on 2018/11/29 20:44
So months back I wrote a review about this gmail app. I stated that it really needed an upgrade. 1. Why am I receiving spam in my main inbox. When I use a regular mail app that filter it properly. 2. Why is the app so behind that it has not edit tab for all the mail you get. You should be able to edit and delete all at once. Why do I want to click on each email to delete it. The app seems to be stuck in the stone ages. 3. The setting menu is bare why even have one. It does nothing to help you be able to organize your email properly. After giving this app months of use and hoping a review would make an update happen. I’m over it and deleting it and going back to my original mail app. It’s no point in a gmail app don’t waste your time. Unless you want to risk opening spam mail by accident. Because you wouldn’t think something like that would get through to your inbox.
Serious bug
by Arynez on 2018/05/16 19:38
This app has a serious issue on iPhone X that needs resolving ASAP. I realized a few weeks ago that I would get gmail notifications but as soon as I’d hold the phone in front of me the notification would suddenly disappear completely rather than expanding to show its content. I’d then go into the gmail app and wouldn’t find any new emails. It wouldn’t happen every time and but was happening frequently. This continued until I started missing important emails. So I looked around and found all of them in the TRASH. I had never deleted any of them. I didn’t even know that I had received those emails. but there is something with the facial recognition and this app that when you have a notification for an email and you hold your phone in front of your face it just erases the notification and deletes the email. I don’t have similar problem with other email apps on my phone so this is a gmail issue rather than Apple issue.
Unsend option disappears too quick
by Alz1four3 on 2017/09/26 20:26
Overall I love Gmail, I love being able to create the different labels. I love the set up when two email accounts are merged together and the ease of switching back-and-forth. I like that I have the option to have access to both email accounts and either get all of the emails at the same time or switch back-and-forth. I prefer to switch back-and-forth because I don't want to check my school email all day every day. It is great that Google separates your promotions, social emails, and spam. My only complaint is this unsend option. The idea is great except I didn't even realize it was an option until recently and yet it's been out about a year. The option to understand disappears in one or maybe two seconds, that defeats the purpose. At least let it sit there for 20 seconds.
Mostly Good
by FrenchMonkey on 2017/10/02 15:28
Most of my opinions on Gmail app for iOS are good. I'm a mostly Mac/iPhone/iPad person in a PC/Android world. I prefer the Google set of apps because it allows me to maneuver a bit better in this dichotomy. Also I like the material design on the Google apps better. The Gmail app specifically needs improvement in viewing previous replies, especially those that come in while you might be replying. I often miss replies because of the way responses are displayed. In the app it's very difficult to figure out who replied when during an active conversation that often includes more than two responders. I do like how social and promotion emails are separated, although I'd prefer to tweak those settings. There very well may be a control but it's not obvious if there is, nor have I gone looking.
It is NOT intuitive
by Wordy-one on 2018/11/02 03:56
I’ve used email since the internet was accessed only through America Online and Prodigy. I’ve used computers since the early 1990’s. So when I say this app is both not intuitive AND a real pain... I’m not joking. I first used gmail as an additional, non employer-based email for teaching, since I was also using google drive. Much more recently, I added two additional gmail accounts for volunteer duties. The problems? 1- The icons are not self-explanatory so I have no idea what touching X or Y will do. There’s no way to “hover” over an icon to figure out what it does before I click it. 2- I set up one gmail account on my computer and then added it on both my iPad and iPhone. It alone would not coordinate with the same exact email on my computer. The other two accounts showed up. NOT good when I am thinking “no email” really means “no email”. Nope - it only meant I didn’t get the emails that I found (two weeks later!) In the gmail account on the computer. 3- I sent out 6 mass mailings on that account today. I know they went out because one of the two included a BCC to me. But I cannot find “trash” to find them. I cannot find them inv”send”- but I got the BCC on my AOL account. 4- I regret using gmail but I am stuck with it as it us on the newsletters I produce. So if you have other choices, try them. This app is more s pain in the ()&@ than it is worth.
Are you kidding me??
by Jen54 on 2018/02/14 18:45
There are 2 huge things wrong with the gmail app that 80% of users hate and yet google continues to do updates on the app and completely ignore these 2 very crucial problems. 1- It doesn't allow you to turn off conversation view. It is awful. It's crazy to me that Google won't listen to thousands of complaints regarding this. In my job I will use the same subject line in many different conversations. So then it groups all of those emails together. And many times important messages get lost in these lengthy "conversations". Also to make it worse, I can’t label each of the emails separately. It only allows you to label the entire “conversation” which doesn’t work for me since it groups together emails that have nothing to do with each other. 2- It won't allow you to add your signature right after your message. It adds it at the very bottom of the string of conversations making it pointless to have a signature at all. Someone would have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the whole conversation to see your signature. Who would do that?? How does google not see this as a problem? And, do they mean to put the signature at the very bottom or is this a glitch? Google stop wasting time on STUPID updates like this last one or on producing cars, and actually fix your basic problems with gmail.
Good start, Lacking Features
by Preston68* on 2018/12/13 19:40
I’m disappointed by this app for the ipad especially. I use my iPad Pro as a professional device and google apps just aren’t up to the task quite yet, especially the gmail app. Please work on updates so it can be used when multi-tasking on the iPad. Better attachment options as well would be a huge improvement since right now all that’s allowed is to attach from Drive Files and when they attach they are used as a link that needs shared as well instead of actually attaching a pdf/photo. Other then that the way the inbox and multiple accounts work is great. The fact that the signature from desktop apps is carried over is outstanding as well! Please please please just update the app to better support iPad work, multi-tasking, and attachment options/drag and drop from other apps.
Love GMAIL...However,
by beckywfisher on 2018/11/07 19:26
I swear by gmail for its’ spam filtering and the organized way it looks compared to using other email platforms. BUT- It is soooo frustrating how difficult it is to access gmail CONTACTS through the mobile app. Even when I go through the loop holes of logging in through the web browser on my phone, I still can’t access it. I select “go to contacts” and it refreshes back to the same page endlessly. I also really don’t like how the FORWARD EMAIL option is not in plan sight. Nor is the reply option. What the heck? I have to search around and remember that the 3 little dots at the top right of the email will show me those options. WHY? The basic function of emailing is replying and forwarding communications to others. Why is the gmail app so terribly “simplified” that it’s so hard to use and find what you need just to function quickly and efficiently?
'Unread' is broken and sending emails doesn't work sometimes
by kryptomicron on 2018/05/08 13:39
I have been relying on this app to take notes. It *was* pretty handy to be able to send myself an email, even when I didn't have access to the Internet via WiFi or cell service. That no longer works. (And the new 'sending' UI is an extraneous awfulness that, at least, visually indicates that this now doesn't work.) Worse than that tho is that sending emails, to myself or anyone else either, *also* doesn't work sometimes. I've got several emails in my 'Sent' list with nice little spinning indicators helpfully informing me that this app doesn't send emails very well anymore. That's kind of an important feature for an email app tho. I guess I can't complain since it's free! Maybe Google's prodding me to migrate to another service. Oh yeah, the 'Unread' list is basically just a dishonest 'Everything' list. That's discouraging! The emails I receive are already boringly repetitive as-is.
