For 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.
So I think females a good app but it is not the best email I made it for and I’ll tell you all my issues the first that I was going to say is that it’s too hard to walk out deal sometimes I get a new email on Gmail and just need to log out to check out my phone for older to check my password but I have to delete me or or just download the app again if you can not do that and maybe tell us how to log out it will be easier and maybe make a settings button now my other issue is too hard if you want to get a new email there’s no likes and you have to be easier way so we don’t have to look out of YouTube because I put it when you login to your Gmail and here’s my final at you for getting password do you know when you forget the password do you have to keep why did you could’ve put my different Gmail than you like attach for the different kinds of Gmail that’s my opinion on it I’m giving it to start because it only has three issues if you can fix it all in a couple of days I could give it a better reviewBut it’s a very safe and I do recommend that should fix his little features legislature can only be in my opinion so I’m not saying not to use
Ever since this app updated it’s had really annoying glitches. The Gmail app keeps putting old emails in my primary folder that I previously had moved into different folders and/or deleted. Now I have random emails showing up that are from weeks ago showing up in my inbox! Plus I have 3 different google accounts linked to the gmail app, and the gmail app is now mixing up the emails amongst my google accounts! Emails that should be in my work email are now showing up in my personal email and vice versa! Yet if I go on my computer and open gmail, these emails are all in their folders in the correct google account as they should be. It’s such an irritating glitch and makes the app practically useless. Plus gmail got rid of the option to use Safari as your browser and to select more than one email at once! Come on gmail! Fix these issues!
I don’t trust Google for privacy, so I only use gmail for online shopping or gaming stuff, never for important things like personal business. That said I’m giving this a 1 star review because the app insists on opening links in its own browser even though I’ve set it to use Safari. Every time I need to reset a password or log into a site, I have to tap the link then tap the compass to actually get to the browser I want to use. This past week I was on a road trip and tapping the compass only worked about 20% of the time. The rest of the time it would load the company’s homepage or a 404 in Safari instead of the page that loaded in Google’s browser. I’m so tired of it I’m finally uninstalling the app.
Beyond that there’s also no way to easily empty the social and promotion bins, but that’s just picking nits.
I use Gmail every single day for work. I noticed lastnight the issue began. On both my iPhone and iPad... so I assume it’s an app issue. I can open the app fine, pick which email to open, and I can even start replying and typing but the second I hit backspace the whole app freezes. I have to force close the app to even be able to use my devices again. I’ve tried restarting my devices as well as updating the apps. It’s still freezing. I figured I would sleep on it and see if it was fixed in the morning. It is still freezing so I will have to borrow someone’s computer to answer my important emails.
Once again, iOS goes through another update and gmail fails get their notifications showing up on the gmail icon. It took almost a month after the last iOS update before I was finally able to see how many unread emails I had. Now with the new iOS update, this issue arose again. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Without fail, after an update, I am no longer able to see how many emails are unread. I have to manually go into the gmail app and refresh to see if I have any new unread emails that came in. If gmail could fix this ONE problem with updates, it would be superb.
They haven’t innovated in years. Still, when I go to email someone that has emailed me before multiple times and you go to type their name in recipient section and nothing. I can search this person in the main part of the inbox , but when when I go to send an email the recipient search is blank. It’s been like this for over 10 years too. I don’t think they are focused on making their products better at this point. The investors have taken control, fired the innovators, and its clearly being run by accountants now. Google is a shell of its former self.
Signatures are not inserted inline with the body of the email. Yes, I have tried mobile signature, along with the different settings within the Gmail web interface including but not limited to "Insert signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it."
I'm tired of my mobile email strings showing my signature encapsulated at the bottom when having a conversation on a thread. Seriously? Who in their right mind thinks that looks professional!
The Gmail iOS (as of 6.0.200826 and probably a few earlier updates) totally breaks the formatting of forwarded emails. Dozens of blank lines are inserted between images and other elements that should be rendered on a single line.
What was once an extremely good app is now useless for all but original email creation.
This problem ONLY occurs with the Gmail iOS app. It does NOT occur when forwarding emails using the Gmail web application, even from the Google Chrome browser on iOS.
First I have to say gmail is one of the best, responsive, and castes mailing applications you can find for the iPhone. We need two features however,
1) sync with settings from our gmail on our computers including starring certain emails and different color starts that we have access to on the desktop version of gmail.
2) we need a gmail widget for fast and easier access to our emails at a glance. So we can add a mail widget to our Home Screen. Would help with productivity.
