Gmail: the incompetent substitute entirely unable to replace the INBOX experience. INBOX changed the email game. It made email a productive activity again. I looked forward to that sunshine of “nothin new here”, via smart, dynamic bundling. Now it’s back to the painful, unorganized, uninspired, intolerable tedious chore of labels and manual organizing! What a backstep Google! Love the lack of effort and planning to cater and serve loyal email users! What a joke to kill the superior product that actually provided a dynamic solution to managing email. You left me an inferior product, and now I have no choice but to leave you until there’s a return to sanity and INBOX is back.
I can unsubscribe to any account or platform I signed into by the email account where their emails arrive. NEED one of more tabs for sorting emails. Need - I need to learn how combine my contacts from accounts. The app is great. Just more learning is needed. Will research Google.
Things were fine with it but saw there was an update. I normally don’t update because they can break apps, but I said this is Google, they can’t mess it up...and they did! I’ve deleted and reinstalled and it still doesn’t work. Unbelievable !
This app does not allow as large print as others so I don’t use it
Edit: surprisingly all my complaints below have been addressed. But please allow turning off image loading by default!! This is available on web and Android - why not iOS?! I don't normally write reviews for apps but Gmail has been such a core part of my workflow for years that I had to this time. I'm glad the Gmail team decided to overhaul their app but it seems like they fixed a bunch of non-problems while removing basic and essential functionality. The following is a dump of my major complaints about this version: Emails are now unnecessarily huge in the list view while email body text has managed to shrink, making it harder to read. The color scheme is distracting and in-your-face. Multi-select works but taking an action on a set of emails after selecting them deselects them, which is a departure from their old behavior on mobile and their current behavior on web. Mark as read followed by archive on a bunch of emails is something I do multiple times a day but that is now significantly more difficult. Signatures need to be set separately on mobile - why?! On the web I've created a signature with specific formatting - good luck doing that on mobile. Switching accounts defaults to my "unread" view which is never what I want. It should be easy enough to remember the view I was last on and default to that. Opening links now uses Safari instead of Chrome. It's a Google product! Why does it use Safari (which, by the way, is horrible and way worse than Chrome)?! I know people sometimes don't react well to UI changes but this new design was absolutely not well thought out, and if it wasn't for the fact that other mail apps are even worse I would have switched by now.
using the app is a lot easier than going to safari and having to search it up. it also is a great way to keep that annoying pop up add that says the app is way better to go away. it’s a lot easier to read and see stuff and you will actually get notifications when you get an email. i give it a 4 star because not only is it a mail app, but i bet any other mail app would do the needs you need in an email app. so that’s my rating
Love this app, and gmail in general. My one gripe - not being able to search for labels, I have a TON and have to scroll and scroll and scrooooooll to the point where I've renamed my most frequents ones with an A at the beginning (ex: A Shopping) so that I can save some time. 😬 please add this feature and I'll be like pig in poop!! Please and many thanks!!! ^Wow, today is 7/21/19 and who knows when I wrote this but I was getting on here TO WRITE THIS!!!! Why is this STILL not a thing. Especially when outlook can do it....a search bar pops up and I just start typing Taxes instead of scrolling for 20 min or using A Taxes during tax season. Lame gmail. Help a sister out!!!!
That’s how many emails I had after downloading this app; not sure how to access them all or get to a place where I can “mark all as read”. If anyone knows a way to do this please let me know; I would like to keep using this updated version, but if the notification number bothers me, how am I supposed to know when I really have a message I have not read yet. Should I just delete?
I tried to click on the app today to check my emails but it won’t work. First time I click on it, it sent me back to my home screen then I click on it again and it tries to load for a while then sends me back to my home screen AGAIN. I restarted my phone and it’s still giving me the same problem.
