Gmail - Email by Google App User Reviews & Comments

I’m hating my GMail Account, but feel stuckOk, now I’m really upset. My main email address will no longer show me my emails on my main work device, my iPad. I have left questions through the website, have tried calling, have emailed them, and nothing. Seems a multi-million (billion?) dollar company could certainly afford a switchboard operator and some techies on staff? I do too many things I don’t want to lose in my emails, and I’m afraid Google is not longer reliable. And...once again, I don’t expect a reply. Absolutely hate the update since “All Inboxes” arrived. Since then, Google Mail has decided that my two alternative accounts are the only ones I need to see. My default (for about 12 years now) email account is only visible to me on my phone, and no longer on my iPad. I have sent emails, chatted, attempted to find a phone number 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😅😂😂🤣😅, and all to no avail. I do business on the email account, and now it has to be done on my phone. I have emails I’m missing that will ultimately cost me business. I need a mail server that is reliable. Anyone have any suggestions? Because Google is not reliable..Version: 6.0.190822

People Have Different NeedsI 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!!.Version: 5.0.180701

Stop asking me about my browserI have used the gmail app for years. I recently changed some passwords and ended up choosing to switch to safari to save the suggested passwords in my keychain. Well the gmail app is positively having a fit that I don't use google chrome anymore and the petty rivalry is very unpleasant for a user. Every time I click a link in an email it asks me what browser to use - even though Safari is the only one I have!! The gmail app asks me every single time if I would like to please go download chrome from the app store in order to unsubscribe to an email. There is a setting that says "ask me every time" that I always switch OFF yet this keeps happening. Seems pretty useless to set a default browser AND say I don't want to be asked about it ... and then be asked about it every single time. I can only assume it reverts to "ON" when the app updates, which is like, once a week. About the same frequency that I unsubscribe to something, so it asks me every single time I click a link. Very disappointing. It is so unpleasant that I am considering deleting the gmail app and using the apple mail app to check my gmail account. I hope the developers see that their tactics don't foster loyalty and are a major turn off to users - you won't convince me to come back to chrome by harassing me about it, I'll just leave gmail too. Ridiculous..Version: 6.0.201018

So glad I switched to Google MailUpdate: 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!.Version: 5.0.180826

Can’t secure the app or use settings properly.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..Version: 5.0.180422

Google wrecked a good thingFormer inbox user. I understand and a smaller user base can drive a product to be shut down. That’s not my issue-my (among many others) issue is that Google has assured customers that they were putting “the best” of Inbox’s features into Gmail to give everyone a more modern look and much better functionality. When they say that then it gives users the impression they would actually do what they said. Instead of upgrading Gmail they decided to put a couple minor features into Gmail and leaving the better options such as automatic grouping based on promotional, purchases, etc along with your main mailbox for the information you want to see. What we’re left with is an inferior product with the look and functionality of 2005 and even include forced advertising in the main mailbox. That said, they’ve done a great job at losing a longtime user and until they hold up to their promise of giving us a mail app that functions well in the year 2019 I will not return to using these or any of their products. As of now I’m removing their suite of products from my phone and and computers..Version: 6.0.190309

I’ve come all the way here to leave a reviewThe fact that I’ve gone out of my way to review an email app should say something. Why on earth can you not select all to delete mass emails through the app? It’s infuriating. I am rarely on my own desktop or laptop at home. I spend most of my online time at the office. And for some ridiculous reason, my company is extremely paranoid about gmail and has it completely blocked. Thus, I cannot log into my personal email through my work computer. I can only use my phone. But can I quickly select multiple/all emails in my junk folders to delete them at once through the app? No, I cannot. I have to select each one individually, which takes roughly a million years. Because I, like I’m sure a lot of people who have been using the same email since they were a teenager, have thousands upon thousands of junk emails sent to me every hour. So, to quickly and efficiently clean and organize my inbox, I must log into my email on my desktop at home in the evenings while my toddler is screaming at me. But do I do that? Of course not. Who thinks of cleaning their over-cluttered email inbox with their very limited evening free time. So of course, my millions of emails stack in my inbox for months until I can’t take it and eventually attempt to clean it all out, which takes hours, and I inevitably give up, and thus the cycle repeats. For the love of God, Google. Please add a feature so we can select all in the app and save my sanity..Version: 6.0.210905

No support if there are errorsUser beware!! Apparently, if you tap “report not spam” on an email in your spam folder, the email does not go into, inbox, trash, personal, all mail, promotions, important, flagged, draft, etc. It just disappears from existence. Reloading the application doesn’t work, desktop version doesn’t work, etc. there’s a huge thread on the google help center discussion board about it! This is a common bug that google won’t address. Further commenting on the thread, or any thread dealing with the issue is blocked. There is no article about it in the self help center for common questions, and no actual person available to help. There’s no email to submit a question or concern, no chat; nothing. Google workplace does have customer service care......for a fee. The email I lost was from a potential employer about my application. Part of the screening process is a timely response to the email. The email that has been wiped from existence. I just took a massive loss for myself and my family because of a bug that they won’t take responsibility for..Version: 6.0.210207

Why do my pictures I email on Gmail come out blank white🤬?Yesterday I tried to email my friend: JC this picture I tried to share with him on my Gmail app like three times but the images I’ve sent him so far kept turning up blank white, last night I emailed my picture to my friend from my AutoDesk sketchbook app on my iPad Pro, he told me he got what I wrote to him but the image/picture I sent him turned up blank white😠, so I tried again two times today: I tried emailing the picture to him on my iPhotos app on my iPhone but it turned up white again😡, so I tried emailing the picture to him regularly by clicking on the attach icon on my Gmail app, and it turned up to be a tiny square white blank in there this time🤬. So now I’m writing this one star⭐️ hoping that Google or the people in charge of the App Store on our iPhones, iPads, and Apple TV streaming devices etc will read this review and see if any of the companies in charge of the Gmail app will fix away these white blank image glitches👾, and I hope I’m not the only one who is dealing sending pictures I didn’t want turning up into white blanks here😡..Version: 6.0.201115

Overall a great app with a few flawsGmail 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!.Version: 5.0.171120

Notifications broken?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..Version: 5.0.170910

Great but just one thingI’ve been using Gmail for as long as I can remember. There is no better email service and I’m convinced of this. That being said I have one complaint. I’m one of those people that hate seeing the little red number on his apps. So I constantly check my notifications and read my emails and stuff to make sure it goes away. However, about 80% of the time, I’ll get a number, and I’ll go in and it matches the number of unopened emails. I’ll read them all, 1 at a time, and after I exit the app, it still has a red 1. And it will stay there unless I delete and re-download the app. Or if I wait long enough for another email to come in and I read that one, then *sometimes* it will go away. Anyway, I realize it may seem small, but it really gets under my skin. It’s been doing it for months now. If that were fixed, it would turn my 4-star review into a 5-star review. I hope you see this Google..Version: 6.0.191023

Fix your Contacts System!!I just bought an iPad Pro from a 2011 MacBook Pro to do all of my business work on and Gmail is the mail business email I use. As I’m working on my iPad, I notice that I cannot send an email to the labeled contacts I have in my google account. I have 30 different people in that label and I cannot keep track of them all unless they have that label which was the main reason I switch to gmail for my business. I figured it was fine and I would just use gmail on Chrome since there is NO APP for Contacts on the iPad. Because iPad is an iOS device, google showed me a very outdated and unuseful verson of gmail to get me to download the app that I already have, and I ALSO couldn’t email everyone in my labeled contacts. I had to actually open up my 2011 computer to get the job done, and I have to open up Chrome to even view my organized google contacts. Google, this is not ok. Give me an app or just let me see and use my CONTACTS in GMAIL! This should be a no brainer! FIX YOUR CONTACTS SYSTEM!.Version: 6.0.191117

Down, your out!!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!!!.Version: 5.0.170827

New Update Hurts My EyesI have migraine and vision issues. The new, jarring, super white look makes my eyes hurt, especially when I have a migraine. With no color separation or clear boundary demarcation, it strains my eyes, if I have to spend any real time checking my email. I no longer use a desktop or laptop computer, so I depend on using the app. The new changes make it almost impossible for me to use, though, because it literally hurts my eyes and causes my vision to blur. Additionally, the placement of the option to change accounts in the previous version made sense. Where it is placed in the new version is not intuitive or user friendly. It now takes extra steps to pull up a separate screen in order to switch between accounts. This means I have to spend additional time on the stark white, visually unappealing app, which literally causes me pain, if I want to check my mail. This is a HORRIBLE update, that does not give any consideration for those with eye strain or vision problems. I won’t even go into the serious need to add options for color coding, for people who rely on visual cues to stay organized. Or the fact that nearly every other email app had a dark mode, at the very least. Please, please, PLEASE fix this!.Version: 5.0.190127

NEW VERSION IS FRUSTRATING!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..Version: 5.0.170827

Down graded a perfectly good productThe old email app was perfect in my opinion, this new one is awful. I tried to send a simple business email through it, and it opened my drive, and google docs just to load the thing into my email which the file was already attached to. Also now I cannot even read any of the attachments I am sending to double check if they are correct, I have to open other apps to read a file loaded already on this one. So far after loving the convenience and simplicity of the old version for many years, this new one is absolute garbage. The main problem is I send most of my business emails through my phone because my computer is slow and mainly stays at home, so this extremely hinders my ability for this process because doing this through the phone is just frustrating. So recap, the old version was great and easy to use, the new version took me almost ten minutes to send a paragraph with an attachment to someone I regularly email for work. That includes several emails which sent the wrong attachment because I couldn’t open it in the app to read it..Version: 6.0.190324

Almost PerfectThe 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..Version: 5.0.180107

Not ready to replace inbox (yet)Gmail is ok. It does the job. It is not yet, however, nearly as good as the Google Inbox app that they recently announced they have killed off. You can snooze emails in gmail, but you have to open the email, clock the menu, then select snooze, and then pick the snooze value. So many actions required! With Inbox, you just slid to snooze, which is much easier. Inexplicably, the slide feature in Gmail just lets you archive, and it's the same action whether you slide left or right. Redundant, and one of which could do easily be replaced with snooze. Inbox also has a great feature where it groups all your trip emails into a single menu item. Not so with Gmail. Switching to Gmail after inbox feels like going back to an app from 5 or 6 years ago. Gmail has a number of improvements to make to this app if it is meant to properly replace inbox. Hopefully they make these necessary improvements in the months ahead. Otherwise the overall Google email experience will have taken a fairly sizable step backwards..Version: 5.0.190211

Great mail app except for browser preferenceIn 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 😊.Version: 5.0.180122

Yes, it can be as bad as everyone says it isJune, 2021 I spent some time reading reviews after people updated to this whatever version and there's a lot of unhappiness about it. That it doesn't update automatically like some Google apps do even though I have automatic updates turned off is probably the only good thing about this update.I know I said I’d check out more mail apps but I didn’t. It’s such a PITA to do that, isn't it? Google doesn’t care if we’re frustrated. We're just little people. ____ There are things that don't make sense that have always made perfect sense before. They weren't as attractive as they might have been or were looking dated but they weren't granite tile countertops or shag carpeting kind of dated since they functioned smoothly without getting food bits stuck in them. Now there are things that should be so easy but then I find out I've been altogether wrong. Please don't keep releasing bad versions. I updated to a terrible one and the reviews are indicating the next update is awful. You had a functioning product that you broke. Why? ---- I tried to do something I hadn't done since you all had messed up the app. Since it was so bad my plan was: - Remove stars ✨ until only 1 ⭐️ remained. I'd already done that. - Find a 3rd party app that functions better. Annoying, but I hate this Gmail app almost as much as I do Facebook Messenger. That's a bad'un too..Version: 6.0.210530

App does not reflect changes made in desktopI have several google accounts I use for both work + personal life. Up until now, I have enjoyed the gmail app, finding that it is simple to use, and has everything I need to view, create, organize, and respond to emails. However, I recently went through a large email dump on my desktop, deleting about 52,000 emails across all my accounts. When I go to gmail on the web browser on my computer, it shows zero emails in the inbox. On the app, it's still showing thousands of emails in the inbox, despite having deleted them. I thought perhaps it would take the app a few days to catch up since I had deleted a large amount of emails at one time.. Unfortunately, even after several days, the app still does not reflect these changes. What use is an app that still shows me thousands of emails in my inbox that I have removed? Why does the app not match my current inbox status? I tried restarting my phone. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling. The issue persists. Very annoying, and renders the app completely useless for me..Version: 6.0.201101

Pretty sad response time from GoogleThis 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?.Version: 5.0.170910

The Good and the BadThe good is that I have yet to find another email app that handles the label/folder thing as well as Gmail’s native app. I can easily see my labels. I like the snooze feature as well. The bad is that it is clearly not a high priority for the company, as their work on this reminds me of kids out of high school with limited leadership. QA misses huge things regularly, implantation of new features is often clunky at best, and they frankly haven’t done much with it over these many many years. Currently cut & paste has big issues and they thrust their Meet functionality so in my face that I can’t even see my entire list of emails anymore. It’s literally almost an inch high of space to push for something that shouldn’t even be part of the Gmail mobile app at all! And this is par for the course with their updates over the last 10 years. I hope they resolve these issues quickly. Meanwhile I’ll continue to look for an email app that handles labels/folders well instead..Version: 6.0.200628

Little benefit over using MailI want to preface this by saying I used Inbox for many years, which was a far superior app to the Gmail app, and I was upset to hear it would no longer be supported. Essentially, the app allows me to read/send mail and bundles/sorts it to a limited extent. With so many companies changing info with each email blast, it’s nearly impossible to appropriately filter with this app, whereas Inbox bundled with ease and learned very well. I am able to turn on confidential mode, which I seem unable to do from an IPad through the browser. However, attachments are limited to camera roll, recent Gmail attachments and Google drive. I’m unable to attach files from my IPad without first moving that information to Drive, which for many sensitive things, I would prefer not to do. I would suggest using Mail for the benefit of integration with other Apple products, but encryption/confidentiality seems even more difficult to achieve that route..Version: 5.0.190127

Forced to use Gmail. Farewell Inbox.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!.Version: 5.0.180826

This App Needs Some Help!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!.Version: 5.0.170925

Warning about adding emails to your gmailYou 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”.Version: 5.0.171120

Basic functions…For a company like google, it blows my mind that the app does not have a mark all as read option. You have this dumb sorting automatic sorting system that constantly hides emails from me that, but you can’t put the mark all option from your browser email system to the app. It is 2021. There is no possible reason for this. I only downloaded this app so I could separate the notifications between my two emails on the iPhone mail app and gmail app. I’m currently computerless, so this is quite an inconvenience dealing with emails. Also, I have searched through my entire email history, and have two unread emails I can not find. Searching for “unread” in gmail only pulls up THOUSANDS of emails you have automatically sorted into other email boxes. With no “mark all” feature on app or phone browser, this has made it impossible for me to get rid of the notifications for two, very old at this point, unread emails. I repeat, you are a billion dollar tech company. And you have less functionality than the basic iPhone mail app. 3/5 because obviously it’s an alright app besides the glaring problems..Version: 6.0.210822

Why have ‘social’ & ‘promotions’ anymore?Right before the holidays, I started getting a bunch of promotional emails in my primary inbox. These emails are from sites that I’ve subscribed to for YEARS. And since gmail switched to separate into categories (which I have enjoyed!), it has ALWAYS gone to my promotion inbox. UNTIL RECENTLY! I recently subscribed to a social item, and now that is going to my primary inbox as well. I move these items to their appropriate inboxes, just to have any/all new emails from these companies (and a few others) pop up in my primary with the next set I get sent. This makes going through my emails increasingly frustrating and longer than needed. I have checked the individual emails to see if there is something I can do to get them to go to the appropriate place, and I’ve got nothing. None are marked “important” upon arrival... I see nothing that can fix these items so I don’t keep getting bombarded and have to sift through to find items I actually NEED to see in a timely manner!.Version: 6.0.191117

Simple, I like it that wayFor those who want a simple approach to the online world, this is the app for you. As I’ve heard others say, this very product designed by google has simply become the standard in the way email websites are presented today. There’s no doubt about it. The interface, I would say, is user friendly. The app itself is fast and from my time using it, I have experienced no bugs (that’s not to say they don’t exist, however.) There’s one minor inconvenience and I’m not even sure if this is a google classroom issue or a gmail issue. I use this service for schooling, and I rely on it much more these days because of the current state of the world, and consequently I have to do online schooling. Gmail and classroom don’t work together. I’ll receive an email hours after the assignment itself has been posted, so at times I’m not in the loop as to what I need to have turned in. When I do receive an email for classroom, I’ll tap the “open” button and it doesn’t take me directly to the assignment/announcement. All it does is open the app so now I have to dig through classroom to find it. Regardless, this app is great and if you want a simple approach to email, this app is the way to go..Version: 6.0.200826

Not ready for Inbox users until remainder show up inline with emailI 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!.Version: 5.0.181007

Gmail is good.The app asked me to leave a review. It’s email and it works so, yeay, I’m so psyched about Gmail, woo. What can I say except that it sends email AND, wait for it, this is the good part………… can RECEIVE email as well. *mind blown* (insert mouthy explosion sounds here). They added chat to be in the same interface and I don’t like that but I’ll probably get used to it just like everything else. Heck, I thought that I would never text anyone when iPhones first came out but look at me now, typing away this long message all on a tiny little device in my hands. Typing class in high school never reviewed what it would be like to only use your thumbs and to not really worry about spelling because of autocorrect. Well that should be enough. Why are you reading this far down, there’s nothing down here. Even a bigger quandary is why you felt the need to read a review of an email program, app, whatever. You should really just stop and go get a pumpkin spice latte, yes, it’s that time of year again, the pumpkin spice everything is coming and you can’t stop it. Why would you anyway, it’s delicious, what’s wrong with you? Do you hate people so much that you don’t want them to enjoy a frothy overly sweet Pumpkin Spice Frapp from your favorite mermaid stimulant chain store? That’s just sad, go hold a puppy for a while and get yourself in a better place..Version: 6.0.210822

Swipe Function LostFirst of all I like Gmail and use it on a number of devices with different platforms. I like being able to use one email program for all of my email accounts, which includes other email accounts other than gmail accounts. An annoying bug just started a couple days ago on my iPad Pro 10.5”, thus the three star rating. I can no longer swipe from the left hand side of the screen to open the folders view. When I do this all that appears is a white screen and the app is from then on stuck on a white screen. The app is recoverable by closing it, removing it from the open app view and then restarting the app. I am able to open the folder view by tapping on the hamburger In the top left part of the screen, so the app is useable with a workaround. Deleting the app and reinstalling it fixed the problem for less than a day. Subsequent reinstalls have had no affect on fixing the problem..Version: 6.0.200412

Best mail app in a weak field - could be awesomeI’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.Version: 5.0.170910

Needs some major quality of life updates.I love Gmail, I really do, but the app leaves a bit to be desired. It’s not the most streamlined thing in the world and it’s often difficult to figure out where you need to go to make certain changes to things like where mail goes if you swipe it a certain way, etc. My biggest problem with this app, though, is that there’s no way to delete the contents of an inbox all at once. You can delete one by one, or select one page at a time item by item and then hit the delete button, both of which would take forever with a folder of more than 1,000 emails like my overstuffed Promotions category. This is such an obvious feature. The fact that this app has been around for years and has never had it is unbelievable to me. I can always delete the contents from my computer, but why not just give the app this really basic ability and call it a day? I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one to appreciate it..Version: 6.0.190324

Notifications not workingI’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..Version: 5.0.170910

Minimalist design, minimalist featuresThis 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..Version: 5.0.181230

It’s okay but could use some updatesFor the amount of money and intelligence the google team has, I’m actually quite surprised this email app isn’t off the charts awesome. For starters, they need to create a summary screen of all of your different email accounts similar to the iPhone email app. Right now it’s to cumbersome to see which account you are getting a notification for when you receive a new message. Apple does way better with their home screen. I do think the gmail app is better for setting up a professional signature, but that needs improvement too. There should be a function to change the font and to make letters bold and add variety like in the web version. Also, why can’t you pick a default font for the phone app (like the web version) for the body of the email? Strange. I’m hoping to see gmail come out with a much better version of this app soon considering how many people work from their phones anymore!.Version: 6.0.200324

Our real CampusWebIt 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!.Version: 5.0.180408

Simple and easy with minor flawI have zero issues with this app but one. It is easy to use, looks clean, and is handy to have to avoid logging through my work portal to access. However, it always says I have a notification. I open the app, read/delete emails, close the app and that little red 1 is still sitting there on the app. I open the app again, refresh emails (always still nothing), close the app, then force close the app and it. Is. Still. There. It drives me bonkers, I hate seeing that little notification. I’ve had to disable notifications from the app to rectify this which means I have to go in and manually check. Again, not a huge issue, more of a personal one for me (I just like the look of a clean phone and usually open apps with notifications to get rid of them immediately) but it would be really handy to have that little bug fixed in a future update. Hope this helped!.Version: 6.0.200531

FrustratedI’ve used gmail and it’s app for yrs. However with these resent new updates it’s been frustrating. For yrs I’ve always had it linked to my yahoo email and it was super convenient and easy for me to navigate through the different emails. But with this new update it’s like it’s syncing all of my email accounts together. So now my yahoo email is now synced with gmail, and my yahoo email is my priority account... I can’t tell my emails apart from one another because now it’s all under 1 email account which is the gmail account. There’s no option to separate the two (I’ve tried everything) I even deleted my yahoo account off gmail and placing it back on as a separate account and it still linked all the yahoo emails with my gmail account email. This is frustrating I can’t tell my emails apart because it’s like everything is under that one gmail account smh, it has to be another way..maybe something more simple an easy. Out of all the yrs I’ve had this app an linked emails this has NEVER happened before until now. This used to be my fav email app, there was never a problem in the past so why fix what wasn’t broken..Version: 5.0.190211

Bring back the cursor when doing repliesI 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..Version: 5.0.180408

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!.Version: 5.0.180729

The worst email app availableI was forced into switching back over to Gmail after I was kicked off Inbox. I used inbox as my main work account for my freelance projects (subscribed to Google Work account, paid user) and when I switched back to Gmail it makes me want to give Google up completely. Even Outlook is has way better features than Gmail, but nothing beats the amazing features in Inbox. What now takes me 26 steps to search for an email in Gmail (typing credentials in search, infinite scrolling and looking for that email) Inbox would only take 2 steps (filter pinned emails, then quickly find and open). Now with Gmail I have to delete and archive emails one by one, when I use to do sweeps of archive / delete with Inbox with one click (categories and marked as complete). I’m so disappointed with Google... and I honestly can’t trust any of the products anymore because by killing Inbox Google has showed they will kill any essential app at any moment. My trust in Google is gone. I’m so very saddened and disappointed with the company. Sincerely, Sad Inbox customer and friend 🥺.Version: 6.0.190309

Why the change?I’m not loving or even liking a recent change they made. When I click a link in an email and it opens in Chrome or twitter or insta or wherever, and then I click the little arrow at the top left of the screen that says “return to Gmail” it previously would take me back to the email I had open, unless a long period of time had passed and then it might not do that. However, now it does one of two things, neither of which I like. It either goes back to the email but it is a blank screen and I have to click a left arrow button to get back to the email being open so I can read it, and figure out where I left off in the email. Other times, it goes back to Gmail as if I just opened it up after a long time and it checks for new mail. Then if I want to continue reading the email with aggregated news articles to to see what was next up, I have to remember which email it was and go hunt it down. Please, please, please...go back to the functionality around this you previously had where it would go back to the email you had/have open before you clicked a link, with the email still open and ready to continue reading (from the same spot) before I clicked away..Version: 6.0.200519

Functional, but neglectedThis app serves its purpose for those who have use gmail as their primary email, it offers categories for promotions, social, and primary to allow separation from important and not. Being a Google app however, they do not prioritize us on iOS and overall we are neglected as users by the lack of care they show. Google had announced dark mode back in October for its gmail app, and it was supposed to be an easy update, I’ve seen people around saying it works when they use a newer account, but doesn’t the rest of the tome. It is very disappointing how far they will lack care for us consumers who buy their products. This is a childish game of platform choice and there willingness to provide for us. I have moved on for now from using this app, there are plenty of alternatives that I find similar like Spark, Edison, or even the stock Email application. Google needs to grow up and treat their customers equally and not play favorites because of their OS.Version: 6.0.191215

Inbox app better than gmail but it’s being taken away. 😔I’ve been using Inbox since it was created. Now it’s going away this month, forcing me to go back to the Gmail app, but without all the features of Inbox. The biggest thing Inbox has that Gmail doesn’t is the ability to bulk delete/archive the tab groups. It groups Promotions and other tabs, but with Gmail, swiping simply hides the group until next time. I still have to swipe each individual email to delete. With Inbox, I could delete or archive the entire group with 1 swipe. Inbox also let me pin emails to the inbox, rather than just starring them. I also want to see the Gmail app have swipe options. Currently, it is either archive or delete no matter if you swipe to the left of right. I want both where I can choose the function for each swipe direction. Outlook also has this feature. Wish you wouldn’t ask us to switch to Gmail when you haven’t added all the same features. Got some work to do Gmail Developers!!.Version: 5.0.190211

I MISS “INBOX!!!”I am so very frustrated as a long time “inbox” app user. I have been dreading the day that it actually went away, and now it has! After a Month of it being gone, and countless days and hours of trying other apps and researching how to get the same type of experience through the gmail app, or the iPhone mail app, or pretty much any other app... I can NOT seem get the right amount of notifications! I am flooded with garbage “promotions” constantly coming through my phone, and spent a week straight “unsubscribing” just to avoid this, but there are just too many to keep up. Or I change the settings and am missing emails that I want to be notified for, but also are not extremely important. I do not want to have to go in to my email and mark every single person or place as important, that’s just inconvenient and very time consuming. There needs to be more flexibility with the notification settings. If I want to receive “Primary” & “Updates” I should be able to check off those 2 categories, not just All Mail, Primary only, or None. Somethings got to give. I want Inbox back! :( So frustrated..Version: 6.0.190407

A truly terrible appI 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..Version: 5.0.180422

Extremely disappointed with Google servicesThis is the 4th Google app I have written a review for. Maps, Assistant, Google and now Gmail. Appears to be a trend. Gmail only allows for you to upload and attach files that are located within Gmail or Google Drive. Requiring me to have duplicates of files from Google drive to my devices own storage. This isn’t the case for images where I can directly upload an image from my device without having to go through google photos. Could you please remedy this? I have found there are other complaints regarding this discrepancy that are over a year old..Version: 6.0.200324

Keeps refreshing emails within two minutes of leaving the appThe previous version of this app was wonderful. The latest version, however, is not so great. When I click a link in an email, spend two minutes reading it, and then go back to the app, it refreshes and takes me back to the top of the email - this didn’t use to happen. At first it wasn’t a big issue but it’s been happening all day and is now incredibly frustrating.Version: 6.0.201018

Great app but can you look into thisBeen using the app for years and it’s been great. One thing always baffles me is that I can’t seem to search emails in the folder I just clicked on, so it always defaults back to ‘all mails’ when I search and I have to manually type in the name of the folder first to make sure it’s only searching in that folder. Any chance you could improve that functionality by not requiring a manual input?? That would make search much easier. Unless I missed something obvious. Thanks..Version: 6.0.191023

Please fix phone call bugPhone and video call doesn’t work on the gmail app, but Hangouts is being discontinued. From the gmail app you can’t seem to call a contact direct, and when you send a meeting invite the other person can’t seem to join. Very frustrating as it’s a good way to keep in contact with the kids when they’re home schooling (as they don’t have mobiles). We’ve had to revert to hangouts..Version: 6.0.210905

No response since IOS 13 releasedI used to rely on gmail app a lot coz my personal email and company emails are all gmails. However, since IOS 13 upgrade, my app stopped working each time I attempt to open the gmail app. It just doesn’t respond at all and stuck on the page no matter how I slide on the screen. I close the app and open again it still doesn’t work. Only way to make it work is to switch my iPhone 7 off and restart. It then works for the first day ad return back to “normal” again as no response. The notification is working tho. Very strange. Now I can only use gmail by opening my account on web page and it asked me to install the app each time I login, which is very annoying. I wish I could use the app version. Piece of rubbish. Either fix it or I’ll stop using gmails and turn to Microsoft mail system.Version: 6.0.200112

Couple tweaks?Would love to be able to change the app colour to whatever I want without having to use a widget app. Also, filed and consolidated all my emails on my Mac that are linked to my gmail app and once I opened the app, none of that updated. Tried refreshing it, nothing happened so now I have to do it twice because the app won’t update it? A bit annoying. Still, Gmail is much easier to use than Apple’s Mail app..Version: 6.0.201004

Broken and not worth your timeI previously had all of my emails set up on this, and out of nowhere, all of the “@outlook” ones got removed. So I tried adding them back. Immediately I was met with a question, “Would you like to try Gmailify”, which I answered no, but it wouldn’t let me pass. Tried everything, restarting, updating, and it just wouldn’t let me. So after being forced to answer yes, I had to resign in and after that, I also hit another barrier; it wouldn’t let me continue after choosing to receive my Outlook account’s emails on my one of my Gmail accounts. So now I’ve wasted my time and effort only to be unable to use this app for its sole purpose. Switching to another mail service, I suggest you do too..Version: 6.0.190309

AnnoyedI’d like to start by saying gmail needs a few improvements. They need to make it so that we can mark all our emails as read so that we don’t have thousands of emails that we haven’t read because they are promotions or social that we don’t want to see or deal with and it’s just generally annoying having the notification there. Someone might suggest to just turn notifications off but I need my notifications on when important emails come through and I need to reply to them straightaway or see what they say because I can’t just keep checking the app I need to have the notification. They also need to rearrange their app and make it more user friendly it’s too confusing.Version: 6.0.190822

Updated version doesn’t work!I was forced to update since the version I was using became unsupported. I did, the new layout is nice, Gmail is my primarily used app for my emails, since it’s so easy to use. Been loving it for years! keeps saying that there is no connection when I try to load my inbox!!! Even when both my wifi and mobile data internet work fine for all other apps. Now the app is useless and I am having to desperately shop around for a new, similar app for my emails whilst clinging onto the hope the developers will fix this glitch soon enough. So disappointed!!.Version: 6.0.200412

Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it.I currently use Gmail for my personal and work email. The web-based version on my desktop is excellent and I have no complaints. When I downloaded the Gmail mobile app for my Iphone 7 & iPad everything seemed to be perfect until I noticed that my signature was ending up at the bottom of the email chain ( I stopped this on the web side by selecting Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it. My question is, when is Google going to fix this signature issue on Gmail app. Is there a way to have my signature inserted before the quoted text in my Gmail mobile app? It doesn't look professional when I write an email without a signature right after saying "thanks, or sincerely" as there is no signature after that..Version: 5.0.180325

Good app, but there’s a bug with “mark as unread”I like this app, but there’s an annoying bug that appeared a few updates back. I’ve just updated to the most recent version, and it’s still there. I always leave my app set to show unread messages. When I view a message for the first time, and then mark it as unread to keep it in view, it works fine. However, the second time and onward that I view the email and try again to mark it as unread, it doesn’t work. I have to either do a keyword search or switch to the full inbox view and scan it for the message to again mark it as unread before it finally works. This really needs to be fixed..Version: 6.0.210530

Notification issuesOn my iPhone, gmail used to have the little red one and two over the icon. Now it has gone up to ~400 plus however many new emails are in my primary inbox. I don't know why gmail has started to include my promotions/socials in the notification count but if I go into the app and then check the new ones I receive, it goes away (generally). As someone who likes a clean screen, this is quite annoying for me....Version: 5.0.170925

Latest update = disappointing changesThe beat part of the Gmail app was the clear easy layout, easy to differentiate between dates and emails. The latest update unfortunately does away with this ideal. The now totally white background with lack of borders or anything to differentiate between emails makes it hard to use comfortably. The introduction or promotional emails, and reminder emails at the top of the screen also makes it difficult to determine where your new emails start and end. Not a great design this time round..Version: 6.0.191117

Irritating thingMore often than not the bubble telling you how many unread mails you have doesn’t clear once you’ve read them. I usually have to completely shut the app down, restart it, go back in and refresh. Even then sometimes it doesn’t clear. Not very helpful when you need to know if you have unread mails. For some reason this always happens with the app following an iOS update, then gets fixed a few weeks later..Version: 5.0.170910

Unable to add photos glitchNormally the gmail app is really good and always works. Just lately it has been frustrating because when you try to click any attachment to add it wont go to the next screen and your forever trying to select a photo. The only way to add a photo is by selecting it one by one through the photos app. If you also, try to do more than one photo through the photos app then it also is unable to complete the process. Other than that its a great app, if you guys could just fix this glitch.Version: 6.0.201101

Fabulous app, however there’s a few minor bugsI have been using the Gmail app for as long as I can remember, and it is absolutely great. I could never switch to another E-mail service provider, because Gmail is just perfect for me. However, yesterday I noticed a small bug when I tried to reply to emails. I would click the reply button and begin typing, but after typing only a few words, it would begin to lag, and the keyboard would eventually disappear and I couldn’t type anything. I tried closing the app and opening it again, and I tried turning my phone off and on again, but it still didn’t work. As there were no updates for the Gmail app, I decided to delete and then reinstall the app. I tried to reply to the email again, however, this time, the keyboard won’t appear at all. This only seems to be an issue on the Gmail app, because I can use it on my laptop perfectly fine. Apart from this, the Gmail app is amazing, and I’ve never had any other issues with it over all the years I have used it.Version: 6.0.191117

Not workingLove Google and have had gmail account for years not too many issues, HOWEVER…… for some reason search function not working in gmail on iPad, works on phone, tried everything but still not working, not sure what has changed, is a function I use a lot of, now have to use safari which is not my first choice, Sent request still waiting, tried several google options but to no avail…Not Happy "………… Tried shutting down and deleting restarting ..sort of works but is spasmodic, not sure what is happening but is really annoying.Version: 6.0.210725

Insert signature before quoted text and remove “—“I love that Google has finally given us the ability to turn conversation view off, like we have been able to in the desktop version of Gmail. Having the ability to use our web signature is a must for me for work, however not having it follow my web setting of inserting it before quoted text is a deal breaker, as it looks like I don’t have a signature at all, until you scroll down and see them all collected at the bottom. When this is fixed, I can finally use the Gmail app for my work email..Version: 5.0.180729

Email stuffing upI’ve been using gmail for quite a long time now, but there is this one reoccurring issue that just keeps popping up and I don’t know why. Every 2 months or so, my whole account stops getting emails through gmail. No matter how much I delete and reinstall the app my email doesn’t receive any emails. This goes on for at least 1 week or so. And then all of a sudden I start receiving emails again. This has to stop happening as I need to receive these emails for work and other things. Please get this sorted as soon as possible :).Version: 5.0.180506

Can’t attach filesIt’s pretty irritating that I have to use another email app just to attach files properly. Gmail only allows you to attach a link to a file in google drive, which isn’t acknowledged by most email support systems. It’s also irritating having to change the permissions of files in google drive to be accessible by anyone with the link because not everyone has a gmail account. You can’t even attach files from local files, iCloud, Dropbox or any other cloud storage. And yeah, I’m aware you can go to the file on iCloud and share via email, but that doesn’t allow you to reply to an existing email or send multiple attachments. Pretty crappy experience for the most basic of email functions. The main reason I continue to use the app as my primary personal email client is that it sorts my incoming email into three folders very well and this is consistent with the gmail web version (which isn’t the case when you use a third party app, like spark)..Version: 5.0.180909

Needs basic improvementsGoogle, when are you going to allow an image to be included in the signature? This is essential for anyone using the app in a business manner. And also allowing to connect to iCloud files when attaching? And button to ‘move to’ across the top of the main body of an email without having to hit the three dots then choose (like you have on your web based gmail), there’s space and it would save a click. Please update all the above soon!! I don’t want to have to keep using the Apple mail app!!.Version: 5.0.190113

Heart is there, but it’s fading fastI really, really, really want to like Gmail for iOS. I do. My employer uses the commercial G Suite for our email and cloud services and broadly speaking it runs well. But there are a few rudimentary functions that are just.. lacking. -Attachments. Guys. Come on. 2019, still can’t attach a file directly, or select a Drive file to be sent as a discrete file instead of a Drive link. -Signature insertion. Again, Google - this isn’t hard. Put it in above the quoted text, and below the new message. It works in the web client so why is it still bugged here? -Split View (and this is my dealbreaker) is a brilliant iPad feature that has been around for literally YEARS. Tablet screens are getting bigger and yet I’m forced to burn all that real estate on firing white pixels while I frantically tab between apps because I can’t split the screen in the native Gmail app. I moved my personal email into Outlook because of missing features at the time (now since added to Gmail, so thanks guys), but I’m exploring Airmail or other apps now to do the same with my work comms. If you’re a ‘domestic’ iPad user the Gmail app is probably fine for you, and does have plenty of features. But if you’re using your tablet professionally or consider yourself a power user, be ready for frustration..Version: 6.0.191006

Sometimes I get frustrated😡😡😡I love this app and it’s awesome I would give this five stars if you didn’t stop asking you to buy chrome because every time my mum or my grandma send me a link I really want to go into it but it just asks would you like chrome would you like chrome would you like chrome and it is so annoying when you just like want to do your stuff and get the links otherwise I love this app so get it but please the creators of the app update update update update update update update update update please thank you.Version: 6.0.190721

Works as it should for my use, but where is Dark Mode?So far my experience with the app has been fine. My general use is receiving emails, which it does perfectly. Had never had an issue with opening attachments or the like. However, for me, where this app falls is with it’s lack of Dark Mode. I like to go through my emails either first thing in the morning or of a night, and it can be quite harsh coming from a DM app. Lack of Dark Mode support seems to be a common theme among Google apps and it is definitely something that needs to be addressed and updated..Version: 6.0.200112

Loses filesI have used gmail for a number of years and have no problem with the general operation for what I use it for. When I want to keep a series of emails and the attachments I create a folder and move the email into that folder. However on three occasions over the last 18 months I have gone to one of the folders to look at something and the file has been empty. Not only that folder but every folder has been cleaned out and I have lost everything I have saved. I am now having to look at alternative methods to save emails and the attachments. Some of the data I have lost has given me real problems. I don’t want to go back to the old method of printing everything. How can this happen?.Version: 6.0.200412

GrantI was using the Apple app for three years then I got a message saying because I have Gmail that I was using the wrong app then I bought a security camera and I switched back to the Apple app and I wasn’t getting my messages I wasn’t then I worked out that it was because I switched off the Google app which is much faster than the Apple app which comes with the iPhone.Version: 5.0.171120

Great MUA but flawed implementation in iPhoneI have been using GMAIL on multiple platforms for at least 15 years. It is one of my favourite mail user agents (MUA). There are many features in the desktop application that have failed to be included in the iPhone application, including font selections and formatting options. Some bugs remain unfixed. For example, using the DELETE key while editing a reply often causes the editing function to freeze. You can not edit or compose any reply until you force quit and restart. Makes gmail kind of pointless, or at least incredibly irritating..Version: 5.0.180715

Signature blockThis is a great app except that the business version used to automatically insert my company’s signature block at the bottom of each email. This was very convenient when I was on the road and not in front of my computer. Now it doesn’t have that functionality- I don’t know why nor how to reinsert it. Please let me know if it’s available or reinstall it as a feature if it’s not. I’m paying $$$ to have my business account through this and it is an essential feature for looking professional to clients..Version: 5.0.181021

Notifications, & MeetFirstly I have found a bug with your Notifications on my iPhone. If I see an email listed I obviously don’t want and delete it straight away, the Notifications number often doesn’t reduce (or go away). I think this is because I deleted it before my phone had time to fully recognise it. So I have to go to my deleted file and open the file (but leave it there) and the Notifications number is then updated. Secondly, I am not interested in the Meet tab. Where is the option to remove this tab as I would prefer to have my extra line back. Gmail is for email. I don’t want to have a conference call, I am a self funded retiree and don’t want to have office meetings. You are just forcing me to take on your rubbish. This is as annoying as having unsolicited adds at the bottom of the screen that other apps sometimes have. Put the Meet option in the settings so I can flag it ‘not’ to appear..Version: 6.0.200810

Thoughts on Gmail AppI have only started using this app 2weeks ago, so this particular review is just thoughts on the setup and ease of use for beginner users. When I have used it for a decent length, I will submit another review. Firstly, I personally found the setup to be a little confusing and lengthy. I do understand that the app has a ‘How-to-Use’ section as part of the setup, which is a positive addition, however, I haven’t even began to use the tutorial as I just want to use this app as a quick way to use a simple and basic email function. I think this criticism is more of a reflection of myself rather than the app itself. The way that I am able to categorise my emails is fairly simple and easy. I like the way I can log in to different accounts quickly and easily- that is a great tool. So far, I am still going to use this app and I assume that over time I will see more of the unique benefits that it offers, and will give a more in-depth review then..Version: 5.0.180408

Good until security writting thingI use gmail for everything and have multiple accounts already logged in i recently tried logging into one my accounts that i rarely use and cant get into it cause of the 'type the text' i type it perfectly and it refuses to let me in even after more then 5 attempts i even double check to make sure its correct the speech thing didnt work for me it was silent even after clicking the speaker button all that would happen was a blue bar. I should be able to get into my account in different ways if there needs to be a security thing if that 'type the text' doesnt work as in tended another option would be nice like the 'select ...' captures or something..Version: 6.0.210809

Notif bubble brokenReally good apart from the fact that the notifications bubble won’t reset and disappear after you’ve opened a new email. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled, it’ll be fine til I get a new email and then the bubble will never go away, always saying I have a new email when I don’t. I’ve done everything from completely changing the notifications in the app to primary only and disabling notifications all together hoping that when I turn them back on it’ll have been enough to reset it, it didn’t work. Nor did restarting my phone. I know it’s just a little thing but it’s made me miss emails because I’ve assumed it was the bug when it wasn’t and it continuously tricks me into thinking I have a new email that I don’t. Please please fix this, thanks x.Version: 5.0.181230

Remove adsI used to have Gmail as my primary email app until I became bombarded with advertisements. Granted though, you can delete the ads in the app, but this isn’t a permanent solution. There should be an option to remove ads within the settings as these ads become very distracting over time. I would also love an option to disable the bundling feature, because just even one email is bundled into a category; I can understand this system for multiple emails of the same category, but not individual ones. These minor problems keep me from having Gmail as my email client. Also where is dark mode??.Version: 6.0.191117

Does not sync properlyThis app does not sync properly! For years now, whatever I've deleted or moved from the inbox still remains visible on the app. If I log in via the Web when on computer everything is correct and only shows what I've purposely left in there. Go back to the app and there's like twenty additional emails that I filed or deleted ages ago. It's bizarre and quite annoying to use this app for that reason. I also don't love the grouping of messages. Sometimes if you file away an email and then someone replies to an email in that trail, their new email doesn't always appear in the inbox it appears in the email trail of the email that's been filed away and therefore you don't even realise you've received a new email..Version: 6.0.200920

Unable to mark email as unreadAfter the app update, now: when a new email comes in, I open it and I mark it as unread, it switches back to the main screen and no longer keeps the email unread as some of the emails are important that I usually keep them unread for me to have a look at them later after having a first glance. I again then have to open that read email again and mark it unread, only then it works. Not in the first instance when the email is opened. This wasn’t used to be previously. Annoying!.Version: 6.0.210207

Fantastic Application !I’ve been using the gmail app on my iOS device for years and frankly it’s one the most amazing email apps I’ve used to date, even more so than the vanilla mail app on the iPhone. The bundling system helps keep my emails organised as I’m so used to it now I can predict which category my emails are being bundled into. I do however have one request. Being a user of several mail applications and accounts for both work and personal use, id like to see the developers introduce a method to name and perhaps add profile photos to the non-gmail accounts. If there is however a pre existing method to do so please let me know..Version: 5.0.181119

Stop pushing me to download ChromeI’d probably give this app four stars otherwise, as it works fine, except for the infuriating message that comes up every time you click on a link to an external website, asking you if you want to use Safari or Chrome to open it. This wouldn’t be so bad except that if you deselect the switch saying “Ask me every time” it makes no difference. Why bother having a switch there if you’re not going to honour what you set it to? I’m sure this is deliberate and not a bug. Google, stop trying to push your own browser on me so you can collect more data. I’m not interested. At least fix the switch so if you want to use Safari every time, you can without that message coming up. I’ve switched to another mail app because of this “feature”.Version: 6.0.190407

Great app - needs iOS11 OptimisationI use this app for work all day every day, and it works great, there are a few things that, now iOS11 is here, could be better to increase productivity. - split view support: you cant use this app in split view, and its quite frustrating as i have my calendar or browser open at the same time and it would be fantastic to use split view. - mobile signature: I use a dynamic signature for work which includes images and hyper links, when you use the app you cannot set this up, you need to have done it on a computer first. Apart from that, its great!.Version: 5.0.171020

Ok for basic use - needs tweakingIt’s ok for basic email, however there are some things that need tweaking. • Swiping left/right on an email should provide more management options (e.g. delete) rather than just automatically archiving it - I have plenty of unintentionally archived emails. • When forwarding an email to someone, the forwarded address becomes the primary “reply to” rather than the original sender. I had a situation where I was inquiring about a house to a realestate agent, and they sent me an email. This email I forwarded to my partner so that they could see it. When I went to respond to the agent’s email, my partner’s email became the primary “reply to” email address - I sent off an email without realising that it went straight to my partner, not the agent. Other than these issues, everything thing else is ok. Just some idiosyncrasies that users need to adapt to..Version: 5.0.180122

Can’t attach anythingIt bothers me a lot that in order to attach a file to my email I have to find a computer or possibly go to another application which allows me to attach files from my mobile’s storage directly. It has happened several times that I am actually in a hurry and have to attach some files and send some documents over, but due to Gmail’s inability to upload a file without it being in google drive slowed me down. This is one of the apps that I use the most, and will keep on using, just would like to see the option of being able to attach files from my device..Version: 5.0.181230

Still looking for the perfect email appAfter my old favourite email app broke in a new update I’m looking for a solid replacement. A quick search said Gmail is a solid #1. I don’t see how!! After testing it for a day it’s not worth a spot in top tier. It auto zooms messages without letting you zoom out and no setting for it! Had to ‘forward’ messages to read and the Signitures are broken, And notifications fail to tell you that you have received email and have to manually refresh in the app to get updated! moving my accounts elsewhere in hope!.Version: 6.0.200112

Flying GorillaBefore I found flying gorilla, I was lonely, had no friends, and was in a state of depression. My mum had tried many things to cheer me up, but none had worked. Then I found it. Flying gorilla. The beautiful gorilla flew through the air, dodging birds and collecting bananas. I was instantly cured of my depression, and today I am a successful lawyer with 3 kids and lots of money. If you are struggling with something, download flying gorilla!.Version: 6.0.200628

Dated way to use emailAfter using Google Inbox, being forced to return to GMail is slated stressful step backwards that makes me question whether Google email systems are really still best of breed. The lack of features is astonishing, even for simple things I took for granted - segmentation of e-mail from today, yesterday and this month, inline pictures, inline email view and edit, bundling, profile pictures beside emails, tick and flick of large numbers of bundles of emails at really feels like a dated, legacy way to do mail. Uninstalling, will try Spark instead. First step away from GApps has begun...I can't believe how integral Google Inbox was to my enjoyment of their ecosystem..Version: 6.0.190309

Love The App! Push Notification Problem in iOS11I’ve used the Gmail App for ages and think it’s awesome. In the update to iOS 11 something has broken and Push Notifications come up but don’t go away when you’ve viewed the email. I followed some steps online which involved deleting the App, doing a soft reset and re-installing which worked for about 1 Day and then the problem happened again. Would love to get this fixed as having good lingering notifications on my home screen is starting to do my head in. Thanks for the great work!.Version: 5.0.170910

Some issues attachmentIn using Gmail for bussiness , easy to open , quick sending and receive email Note the drawings received , when I try zoom for some reason after few second back to original scale , become annoying as try all time to zoom pics and drawings , can be this fixed ?.Version: 5.0.190127

Weird behavioursThe app is very basic on iPad, which if fine, but has a bug that is really annoying. Sometimes I select multiple emails and the action bar doesn’t appear (to move or mark as read). The only way I found is to kill the app and open again. Then eventually it will happen again, and I have to repeat the procedure. Also, it is really bad with an external keyboard, basically no support for it. It would be great if it worked similarly as the web version, where you can navigate, archive or move just with keyboard shortcuts. That would also provide a workaround for the bug mentioned before..Version: 6.0.210627

Excellent AppThis is a great App, and I now use it instead of the mail app. I have a feature request. I use multiple mail accounts, It would be good if I could have a different notification sound for each account. This way I know how important the notification is depending on which email account it has been sent to. Otherwise, very easy to use!.Version: 5.0.171119

App is not up to parI love gmail on the desktop so it’s a real shame the app functionality is just a basic replica. I run my business through gmail and my job doesn’t allow me to be at me desk. Thought buying an iPad and downloading the app would help me keep up with my business needs but my business signature is not translated properly, I can’t attach any forms via file search nor via google drive in PDF format (can only send a link), or you can attach a PDF file ONLY if it’s been sent to you previously, I can’t use canned responses...list goes on it’s very frustrating. I’m feeling so technologically illiterate every time I use this app and sending wrong emails to clients that have attachments that are drive links instead of PDFs and looks unprofessional with my marred signature. Completely different interface and user experience compared to desktop version..Version: 6.0.200308

NOT ENOUGH SECURITY GOOGLEGoogle sent me an email on my 2nd gen iPad Pro to use this app once I installed Google docs. I like it except there is no way I have found that when you click on an email in the inbox, you can stop the full body part opening as well. In this day and age, it is way to dangerous opening emails up. We only need to see the first line in the inbox and then maybe click twice or something if you want to open it right up to view. Think about the security Google. Will find one that does what I want and then I will uninstall all stuff I have installed from Google on my iPad..Version: 5.0.180311

Learn the importance of visual languageThe new icons are terrible - at a quick glance they all look the same, and it is very easy to click on the wrong one. Your designers would do well to understand the importance of visual iconography and context mapping. This is clearly the result of some overpaid execs trying to justify their existence, and it shows. Unification of a software suite does not mean every icon has to match, and your brand could have been streamlined without sacrificing usability. Three stars for the fact that the app itself still works fine, though the number of times I’ve misclicked into maps (which sits next to my gmail icon) is frankly astounding..Version: 6.0.201101
