Google new features are missed  Farahzadi  3 star

I wonder why Google doesn’t bring it’s new look to it’s iOS apps; almost whole google has been changed looks which made it better and smarter but none of them has been brought to iOS !!!


Where is Snooze option?  eyebix  1 star

The updated Gmail app has removed the Snooze feature which allowed you to choose to have the email show up later. Unless they’ve buried it somewhere (I’ve check every menu) that nice feature is gone.


Gmail mobile  MsGenRes2  4 star

As a Gmail user obviously I love Gmail mobile, however, I would like to see an improvement when moving emails to files. Once selecting ‘Move To’ it would be most helpful to have a search option to avoid scrolling through the entire list. Thanks!


Bugs  woolfman72  3 star

Latest version has emails stuck in the every thing folder. These emails are not in the mailbox if I go to the webpage. If I try to delete or archive them I get the message “oops something went wrong recent changes may not be saved “ and the email comes back.

Search action causes app crashed  Sassaaa  1 star

Terrible app  Rev v bizzle  1 star

Google stop being stupid. Add a select all button option for emails like “spam” and “promotions” Come on, seriously! Its the 21st century... Stop being douce bags.


It was good, but now...?  Madi45678  3 star

What happened? Everything worked well. It was smooth, no glitches or crashes. I loved the app because of how smooth it worked compared to other apps. Now all it’s doing is glitching. I can’t edit my draft emails without it crashing back to my home screen. Please fix this.

Can’t open Microsoft excel attachment  Angela1937493  3 star

Overall good app however every time I open a Microsoft excel attachment the app crashes, I have to reopen the app 3 times in order to finally view the attachment, please fix this problem!! Other then that, good app


Great MUA but flawed implementation in iPhone  BigOzDave  3 star

I 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.


Deleting email strenuous  coldplayloverau  3 star

I can’t select heaps to delete using iPad plus gmail deleted a very important email even when archived


Fabuloussssss  XXXbabeXXX  5 star

It’s niceeeeee🖕🏻😀👌🏻

C'est-Que L'Homme

New “App Crash” Function  C'est-Que L'Homme  3 star

Nov. 2017: I can quite dependably make the app crash and close, by block selecting and deleting large chunks of formatted email content. Been fine up to quite recently. August 2018: Clearly improved, I can crash it while composing an email, without having to block select anything. It helps me get to a point of techno-vexation faster, with less effort on my part.


Contact groups?  Ylirrik  3 star

Nice app but frustrating that you can’t send a new email to a contacts group?


Great but needs improvement  2KL1  4 star

Currently using Gmail for personal and work purposes. I find it so annoying when I can’t assess the templates I filled out on my computer for emails. If ever a client emails me and I have to reply via a template, I either have to type out the email or go on my computer


Disable conversations  AnnaBerries  3 star

I use my Gmail app all the time and I am constantly missing and deleting important emails due to the “conversations” layout. I have disabled this setting on my desktop, but we REALLY need to be able to disable it on the app!


Kudos Google !!!!  sjalabs  5 star

Finally, I can turn off conversation view. Thank you for adding the feature. It makes my life easier. I appreciate the attention to details.


More adds!!  davidyeiko  1 star

Wanted to like the app but it’s hard to have avoid adds in everything you do now. Would have liked the app if there wasn’t an add every time I checked my email.


Great app but frustrating Feature...  zmarkopolo  4 star

The G-Mail app is a great app. I only wish is that sliding to the left would delete instead of archive.


Overall great. But small notification problem  dr3kn3  4 star

Sometimes I’ll get a notification for an email and then I’ll get another notification for same email like half an hour later. So the time stamp of the notification is off from the actual email. Minor but still annoying. Seems like gmail is the only app that does it. Other apps seem to be alright


Gmail app crashing (8/12/18)  dawnrager  2 star

I'm using the latest software version on the iPhone and my Gmail app is not working correctly... I'm trying to delete emails and it keeps telling me it's "not available at this time" and the emails reappear. I've checked and I'm connected to the internet. Also, when will you guys allow for multiple email deletions at one time? Thanks...


Where is the unthread option?  👀🎅🎏🍒🍀  5 star

Update: OMG, they finally fixed it. Thank you Gmail‼️ Giving back to 5⭐️👍 It needs to have a way to unthread or ungroup as I need to file my email to different folder, just like the options in settings over web, but it's not available in the app, even I set it on the web, but the app still threading the email together...very annoying‼️😏


Says updating account settings. I need email  Sophie26773389:  1 star

App Badge not working  MariaMarquez  3 star

The app badge of the number of emails in inbox not working. It does not let me know when I have an unread email.


Emails Disappear  Cgwclark  2 star

About 75% of the time I open an email from the notification bar, the email disappears. It will open the app, my email will show for like a quarter second then I am rerouted to my inbox with that email gone. This has been happening for about a year. Really frustrated!

Not impressed  PoshWarriBabe  3 star

I do not get notifications for new mails and my signature never applies when I send mails. I like the feel and I really wanna keep it but it is not just working for me.

I enjoy using the Gmail app. It’s easy to navigate and very adequate. I only want a security feature to be added to the app: that is fingerprint identification after an elapsed period to enhance its security. Thanks


Buggy  svsweeney  3 star

Latest version has removed force touch functionality. Unable to BIN emails from the lockscreen. Still showing as unread in inbox.

Great!!!!!  captain zombie rabbit  4 star

I prefer this app because unlike the official apple email app this app sorts out your email while also notify you on the more important stuff so that I don't have look at the email every 5 seconds and missing the important emails

great app  sweetmurphy  5 star

i honestly can't remember how i lived before having a gmail app on my phone. so accessible. the only criticism i have is that its a lil difficult to switch between gmail accounts in that its confusing trying to find the right link to do so. app could benefit from making that feature easier / more visibly present


Mediocre  Buxie  2 star

Reliable email but background along with the tabs are badly designed. New email should be piping out from the screen. Outlook is easier and quicker to navigate


Conversation view is pox.  RonDub113  1 star

Disappointing to say the least  JetBluuuuuuuue  1 star

Rubbish app. Can’t send attachments from Dropbox. Deleted......


Works terribly  chiggggga  2 star

Works terribly, sometimes you have to manually synch to update mail. The app still shows pending notifications even after mail has been read and it takes 24hrs for the notifications to clear.


Very disappointed  o_v_k_25  1 star

Add option to add attachment from iOS files  fedup0123  3 star

It is a bit frustrating that certain email attachments can’t be read by receivers. Google uses Drive to attach links. It would be better if the files from drive would be attached as attachments and not links as certain receivers cant access these links easily. It would also be easier if one could attach files directly and non-cryptically-user-friendly from iCloud Files or Files app on iOS without having to spend hours figuring out what and how this app works. I mean, business-running apps are not that complex to misunderstand. You have a great model Google Inc. Why are you busy dropping the ball? Please contact me if you actually read this. There is nothing more dissatisfying than a Monopoly company ignoring your honest and valued input.


It’s pathetic  Azolando  1 star

I don’t usually write reviews but I couldn’t help it for this app. It is very slow. Don’t waste your time downloading this, rather use other apps or access your emails from google.

When I open up the app to read an email the email will load for a bit and just jump back to my inbox. Have to click on the email again to load it again. Pretty annoying.
