STOP BANNER ADS on mobile browser. Google; like many users who have left comments and run searches to try to find out how to eliminate or avoid them, I noticed months ago that you plastered a wide swath across the top of my mobile browser when I access my Gmail insisting that I download your app. As you well know, this is practically a phishing strategy, as downloading your app instead of accessing your browser for my Gmail is only advantageous to you since you would gather more specific user data. I'm perfectly happy accessing emails through my browser or I would have already downloaded your app, so I have this insistent persistent omnipresent chunk of my screen occupied by your banner insisting that I download it anyway? So that it becomes so obnoxious that users relent just to get the full screen view back when they access email. Stop it. We're clearly not interested, we're very well aware of other apps which we don't download at our own discretion, for many reasons, including not wanting to be even more screen addicted with push notifications and again sharing more user data. No thanks. And again: just stop.

I’ve come all the way here to leave a review. The 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.

Great app, with some issues. It does what you’d expect from Gmail, assuming you’re familiar with the browser version. I have some very specific issues with it that I’ve discovered while using it with my iPad Pro, however: (1) When opening an email with an attachment that is an image (that is, it is not an attached file, but an image file like .png that appears in the email body), the image cannot be downloaded or copied. Rather, the user can only drag it around the screen. My workaround for this is to split the screen between Gmail and Notes, drop it into Notes, then save the image or copy it there. (2) Why on God’s green Earth does the mobile, browser Gmail come from the Stone Age? Please, if I am using Edge on my iPad, why oh why does it default to this weird, old mobile version? Please please just give us the normal desktop version for mobile browsers, or at least when using a browser on a mobile device that could replace a laptop, like, say, an iPad. I thought I had more issues, but these are it. The image thing causes frequent issues for me, personally, hence the 3 stars.

Not sure if I’m missing something. I’ve had gmail for years but the iOS app seems to be missing a lot of the functionality of the browser experience, almost to the point where it’s hard to use. I see other reviews that it’s “simple” but it feels almost like it’s stripped down to the point that as an iOS user I have to go to the browser app to do anything basic like create even a new filter for email from my kids teacher. Would be great to see similar usability to the browser app in the mobile app; however I was living in Europe when the great row over Google Maps vs Apple Maps meant that I basically got lost going to the burrito store because Google Maps got yanked out of the App Store while meanwhile Apple Maps hadn’t built out their EU coverage fully yet. Hope the 3-stars doesn’t offend and I don’t know what might have motivated these decisions but ideally I would be able to be mobile first for my gmail account and right now the iOS app truly doesn’t achieve that yet. Thanks for trying though!

Gmail. this is the only Email I’ve used for about 20 years. I’ve lost some cause I’m horrible at keeping passwords but hey if you aren’t important enough to for me to find you… I have like 6 fB for the same reason. But seriously I can’t complain. I know of countless people who use AOL and they were victims of fraud cause they would give credit for opening an account. I’m sure with good intentions but I’ve yet to be a victim of that. Only thing I can think of is please advise us that if we are opening an account that is not professional (hood or gang names or nick names with your account) that respectable or businesses will for the most part not respond when applying for a. Job. This was something I had to grow up and realize. My bad. Whole heartedly. But to those who are living a lifestyle and trying to do better. Keep it simple your name and some random off the wall numbers. Nicknames and hoods or areas or even area codes. Don’t really fly.

Chrome and Gmail. I call them the big blue on the Internet today ..I remember the first Internet boom in the San Francisco Bay Area ..80 kilometers from the heart of the Internet. Cupertino California aka the later Silicon Valley. Must know the stories of bull and Steve ! Well it’s real as real is. Being a native to these prefectures county’s or provinces. What ever you can understand it as where you the reader is from ..well I tell you bull and Steve are just a a decade older than myself but they were exactly like my friends Ian’s I growing up here. I felt as thou these guys knew me personally. The were eternally approachable by someone like myself in total transparency..I had dinner in a empty restaurant at the sushi bar with two of my besties while I. The corner table mark the Big Z was having dinner with his entourage..I didn’t even realize it till we were ready to settle the finals. One of my besties the only QA Engineer that meets you daily without you knowing it. He expresses himself through the electronic devices we use daily us not knowing that these devices are interpreters iof the people behind the glass. It’s essentially is them it’s it’s entirety. We can live forever as the Bible says our we use AI it’s this in mind. Right direction fellows

Getting worse - bugs, missing features. The Gmail app hasn’t changed in almost a decade, or at least I never see any useful and new features after years. One obvious lacking feature is filters - why can’t I add new filters on the app without needing to switch to desktop? Or “fake” the desktop version on my browser (which appears to be deprecated by the team to force people to use their desktop…)? It’s the most basic email feature, and you can’t create or modify email filters on iPad or iPhone. No idea what’s going on with Google and other big tech companies that have not only stopped new, useful features but have even been removing features to make the user experience complete garbage… for years now since recent times… now, every app update is “bug fixes” in the description, and bug fixes only - for the past several years - and more like adding bugs, since I can’t even update my phone number or payment information on my account, for instance. Edit: forgot to mention, the “unsubscribe” button after clicking “report spam” doesn’t work, and you have to infect your device with viruses by clicking the email and then unsubscribing with the other button once you’ve infected your device. Will add other criminal features from Google as I remember them.

a recent version was broken and support here is not useful. I had the following problem for about a week which is now fixed via the most recent update: if i select a msg and it opens in right pane on ipad, and then i leave app and come back the msg is expanded and i cannot exit the message or navigate at all, have to force close app just to use it again. New bug as of a version here in mid/late february….but is killer, needs fixing ASAP I received a developer response here on the apple store for my review which had absolutely nothing to do with my issue. A link that had me check if I was connected to internet….are you kidding me? Did you read my symptoms? Multiple other people had posted reviews citing the same bug at the time. Instead of testing for a bug or acknowledging it support was happy to waste my time with total nonsense that was clearly unrelated. So I have increased stars to reflect the quality of the (now fixed) app but left a couple off to reflect quality of support.

Minimalist design, minimalist features. This is an email app by the biggest email host ever right? Why isn’t there a swipe to move feature? And the “move to” feature is buried under a menu instead of just out in the open. Everyone I know who has this app complains about this - how is it not added yet? I have yet to find any email app that doesn’t have this feature. It’s just basic email organization. Also, as with most apps sadly, developers haven’t caught on that putting the buttons at the top makes their app two handed or burdensome by hand occlusion or multiple swipes and taps to achieve the same thing if the navigation/buttons were at the bottom of the screen. Leave the top blank and empty - keep that minimal and bring the interactive parts of the app within one handed easy reach (bottom). Lastly, the shake to undo feature is missing which is a basic iPhone feature every app should be held accountable for... not sure how this made it though the App Store approval process with out “shake to undo”, but be warned - this app doesn’t have that cool and useful feature.

People are switching to other providers. July 2023 update: a lot of fake reviews here. Gmail no longer allows downloading a photo on ios. This app gets worse by the year. How do we delete all of the folders that gmail forces on us? So dumb. Dec 2022 update: forcing 2 factor authentication on people is ridiculous. I am forced to change email providers. People don’t always have their phones on them. If a person were to lose their phone, they cannot get into their email on their own computer? Terrible coding. -In addition, Google is blocking email access on my native ios mail app. How many millions of people will this ruin their workflow? -Nov 2021: I just had a bunch of work email replies that I wrote on the road, get erased. Note to google programmers. Very few of us have hi speed, always on internet that you have in your unnatural work place. Please start programming in reality. Yes, internet is spotty for most of us. -When I copy into the gmail app it appears in smaller text? How many coders signed off on this faux pas? So here I am, going back to the native ios email app to handle my gmail. It starts much faster and does not get confused or erase drafts when it loses internet. -Millions like me are trying out Google Gmail alternatives to end the endless coding mistakes and info selling in Gmail. -Giving microphone access to my flashlight app, seriously?

App goes back to Inbox too fast. ETA: I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app, as well as updating the iOS to 15.3.1. So far everything is working the way it should, so I’ve changed my rating from 2 ⭐️ to 5⭐️. The blue line showing which email I last interacted with is a nice touch. I only have one comment now: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Sometimes new features “for better efficiency” actually take more steps than the functionality they’re replacing. I’ll send a note to the product team: I don’t want to use Meet. I wish I could turn that option off in settings so I don’t bump it accidentally at the bottom of the screen. 😑 Original review: I use a lot of labels, and when I click on a link in an email that’s not in the inbox, which takes me to a browser page, if I don’t return to gmail within about 30 seconds, when I do return it takes me back to the inbox instead of back to the label/folder I was in previously. Also, lately about half the time I open the app, the hamburger menu is missing and I have to take it out of multitasking and reopen it to fix that. I love the fact that I can add multiple labels and they are the right color, just like on the web interface, which isn’t available in the native Apple app, so I’m a fan, but these two issues are frustrating.

Doesn’t work. Used gmail for years and always recommend it. Recently I am no longer able to receive emails and can no longer verify my accounts because of this. Thought it was because of the storage limit they came out with but I am way under the limit for it so there is absolutely no excuse why their service just stopped working. My whole office believes that it is a way to try and get everyone to pay a subscription. Will be switching email providers now, all subs that couldn’t be canceled because of the verification issue will now be sent to our claims department and those companies will be back charged through visa because we are not able to log into those accounts anymore because gmail refuses to work properly. As we are not able to contact them without being able to login to those accounts, we will be adding google as the main reason why we are not able to do business with them anymore. This is a major issue and will most likely be brought up in litigation by multiple companies. Please don’t use gmail as a reliable source to send and receive critical emails. It will just stop working one day and you will most likely be locked out of any accounts you link to it or use it to send verification emails.

One strange bug I deal with.. App is fine for what I use it for, but there’s been a bug that I’ve been dealing with for a while where suddenly Gmail says I need to sign in and doesn’t show any emails or anything else. I click on sign-in and it brings me to both of my accounts in the manage accounts section that I have on there and they are both already on the gmail as if it’s already signed in with both of them in the manage accounts section, but when you click on it, it doesn’t do anything. It only asks if I want to remove account from device. Kinda silly considering the fact that the app could just ask me to sign in again, but it doesn’t. So, if I’m not supposed to sign in again, then it’s just a bug that’s forcing me to remove my accounts and add them back again, which is quite cumbersome for an app in 2023. It’s been several months since I’ve been dealing with this, someone address this issue please.

The Most Excellent Email Ever. Well, I just have to say that I am extremely happy with Gmail. Prior to 2011 I had always used Verizon email, and occasionally as a back up used. Now I do sometimes wonder whether Google is listening in on conversations that we have at home, because we do sometimes see ads suddenly appearing (email promos and other online ads) that correlate with discussions my wife and I have had in the last two or three days. And it seems mighty curious. I hope they’re not actually listening, and it’s just a coincidence. But aside from this I do think that the way Gmail screens my incoming messages and files them under three separate tabs is a very good format / system that helps me keep my mail, all of my mail organized & manageable. As someone who cares about aesthetics and having control over what my personal belongings look like, I like the freedom of choice that google offers in Gmail. I also like that there are color and highlighting text, and choices for colors or photos, etc. So aside from the possibility of spying, Gmail has been my favorite email system since 2011… That means 11 1/2 years! So way to go google kudos to you, and please don’t listen to of your customers for keywords and ultimately to bolster advertising revenues. Please contact me without hesitating if you want to further discuss any facets of my honest opining about Gmail. Thank you.

Gmail is nice but Collects too much Data. I’ve had my Gmail account for about 2-3 years and I don’t mind Google Maps collecting my location data or Google collecting my search history, but they collected my photos for over 2 years and I had no idea until I checked my profile and saw them. They also sent an email wanting a review posing as my Doctor 6 months after I had seen him and after I gave the review an ad was placed in my contacts where his number was, I found the same ad under reviews I had given on my gmail page. This has made me go through my Gmail account and change all my permissions for my account and use it strictly for email only, I still like the features of gmail I just want people to know that they collect a lot of data and you can control that by going through your account and changing your permissions to deny Maps, Google, Contacts and Advertising from collecting that data. But this review will probably never get posted because it doesn’t portray the app in a positive light. 💁🏻

Outdated design without the features to boot. Let’s face it, technology, especially in the IT world changes in nearly days. It’s an endless cynical cycle. They’re constantly plagues and antagonize is the human race. It’s no different for MobilePhone applications. They are endlessly changing. Google products especially Gmail, has had the same design. Same features for with so-called an eternity. Which is great in the eyes of the human race because change affect comfort. But with that also is agony because apps such as outlook have added many features to enhance the user experience to make productivity better. One of these features which I personally use is the ability to notify a phone holder of incoming emails from favorite sources. Gmail lacks this functionality which I feel is critical for constant notifications from those which are embraced. You may think this is contradictory between my opening statement, and what I have said but if you look at the promise, I got you to read this far. Now consider an imaginary update to Gmail, which makes it 10 times better than this. Do you think that’ll ever happen?

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!!

Inserting an animated gif. Using the gmail app to insert an animate gif inline just turns the animated gif it into a still picture. This didn’t use to happen some versions ago (one of my phones hasn’t updated anything in a while and I’ve done the testing); desktop also seems to work correctly. It’s a very annoying habit, that of not letting the animation play. Also, something is glitchy in the way this app manages inserting images because, when I close the draft, and open gmail on another device or computer, they’re not always inline anymore but have become attachments. Like, why? And finally, about desktop: if I have thousands of emails that I wish to, say, trash or label and remove from the inbox, is there a way to do it in bulk? The way it is now, on desktop, I can only trash 100 emails at a time (per screen). Also, when I bulk-label something I wish the emails were all removed from inbox instead of having to go into each email to click the inbox label out to remove it. Then that one email is finally where it should be but there are dozens of emails to go.

Thieves of META data to sell. For those of you thinking using Google ANYTHING! You might want to consider how much of your rights you sign away digitally when you download any of their apps or suites! Google is the number one offender of selling meta-data, which is peoples personal tailored information similar to what your fingerprint would be except in the digital world to third-party buyers. May be wondering why they sell this data it’s because of target advertisement and they can also build a profile on your day-to-day activities. Factoring in where you go what you do how are you do it when you do it where are you do it time of day, etc. etc. etc.. it wouldn’t surprise me if Google actually has a dossier on every man in the United States that has at one point use Google services for something in there. And when I say collected information, I mean everything from bank account. To Social Security numbers to your personal address and even access to your cameras. that information is stored on their servers when you use their services. It is all sent back on an average about x1000 times a day for just one. Said that I say start looking to protect your private data that shouldn’t be sold to any company for profit or gain just so they can target advertise you.

Awful. I hate gmail. I truly think it’s a bad app. Why? Because it’s not like yahoo who has the best and most straightforward email of anyone. But it’s a necessity for me to have a Gmail account due to a variety of reasons. I have to have one in order to use chrome browser for one, and it used to be better. Years ago I actually used gmail but then they updated it and made it better which we all know means they made it worse and a beautiful simple app turned into a bad and overly complicated app. Anytime something gets improved it frankly turns to junk IMHO. So now I’m stuck using it for certain reasons even though I’d prefer never to use it again. I hate that instead of being a straightforward email account where all my mail gets sent it is instead a ridiculously confusing map of various boxes labeled starred, important, etc. There are a number of different inboxes per address and I rarely can find what I’m looking for. I’d rather just have one inbox and then a place for trash and spam. I have no idea why Google decided to create such a bad app. I like things simple. Maybe I’m just old and computer illiterate, no matter, this app is too much work. They should’ve let it be.

Notifications not working. I’m not sure if this is an iOS 11 issue or what, but notifications are no longer working properly. I’ve used (and loved) the gmail app for a long time, but recently it’s become a big enough pain I’m considering switching to a different app. I’m an “inbox zero” kind of guy. So when I go in and check all my emails and archive them and leave nothing in my inbox and close my app and it still shows a red badge on the gmail icon with 3 or so unread emails, it’s maddening. Sometimes I’ll pull my phone out 20 minutes later and it will still show unread emails, I’ll check, and it’ll still be zero. Ack!! Totally defeats the purpose of a badge icon with number indicators. It’s making me waste so much time, feel so inefficient, and making me question why I continue using what feels like a broken app. I close the app often, regularly keep the app and my iOS updated, and power off my phone frequently. And none of it seems to help.

Super intrusive. I am in the process of abandoning and closing all my google accounts and going to an email that is not intrusive. When I open a new account for another program/app and my google email comes up automatically, that is not welcomed. I did not deliberately tie my email to that account it was intrusively done against my will. That is an invasion of privacy regardless what the fine print of the “agreement” they MAKE YOU accept to have an account. Without hiring an attorney to vet out the so called agreement you HAD to check off you have no idea what it says your agreeing to. It’s deception at the highest level and it’s completely intentional and completely by design. Google and many companies like facebook have become the bullies on life's playground, they know it and don’t care about the people they intrude on to make billions. It’s freakin horrible these days. I’m done with social media and all it stands for and slowly getting out of the social media world and all the mental and emotional indoctrination pitfalls and completely black toxic holes it creates in a persons life. They all have soooo much to answer for.

New notifications update. If I can’t preview my email from the notification banner on my Lock Screen anymore, then I will turn off the app notifications altogether and check my emails the old fashion way. This new update that forces me to open the app every single time is anti productive. Not every email I receive needs my immediate attention, so I don’t always open them right away. However, there are a few that require special attention and I can no longer differentiate between important and nonessential emails with the new notifications system. Therefore, I am turning off notifications altogether and I will check all of my emails at the same time; which is when I get to them! Edit: Newest update fixed the problem. Google, seriously don’t do that again. That was so annoying, I even considered switching to yahoo mail (🤮). There is a reason people use your service and not others, don’t ruin it for yourselves.

New Update Hurts My Eyes. I 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!

Hacked. I have for over a decade to contact call email and everything I could because all my gmails, which was my apple accounts were hacked dealing with SHERRIFF police and attny general. I was treated rudely by a lady customer service agent I supposed she worked for you but who knows any more with all the scammers and hackers. I have lost everything my identity my money and credit and do much more. I have 8 cases of paperwork proving all this and all addresses and numbers except what they changed like my Birthday passwords and secret questions. This has gone on over a decade and I will not stop until I’m heard and get some part of normalcy to my life. I have lost several online businesses and physically attacked and molested and lost my brick and mortar businesses. I’m now disabled and getting worse! Please, contact me asap so we can set up solutions to validate right from the beginning of the accounts I opened and the new ones that they are pretending to be me and hacking my friends. I have no Fronde because of this no credit no car no family and now just a hacked phone no computer. This is very unacceptable. I would like to see customer service step in and do dining here. I’m writing everyone involved.

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.

Widget does NOT update itself. This is a great app, maybe my favorite email app, but it is ruined by a faulty widget that does not update itself. The whole point of the widget is that I can see at a glance the last few emails that have come in recently and know whether or not I want to open the app and read them. But, the widget does not update itself. Several times over the past several days, when I look at the widget, it shows that no new emails have come in in the last 8 or 10 or 12 hours. But then I open the app and find that there have actually been 5 or 10 or more new emails come in during that time. But the widget will only show these new emails AFTER I have opened the app and looked at them, which completely defeats the whole purpose of the widget. This is really a shame because in all other respects Gmail is probably my favorite email app, and I have tried all the major ones and several of the minor ones. But for me, the widget functionality is hugely important, and it appears to be completely broken with this Gmail app. I’m shocked and surprised that a large company like Google has not fixed this!

Frustrated. I’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.

Warning about adding emails to your gmail. You will run out of memory faster because the other accounts you can add will add to your memory with ALL google products. I was enticed to add my yahoo account to a gmail address last year. What happened is that I’ve had gmail since 2005 and love it. I lost my free “legacy” added memory because I had to upgrade or I’d lose my emails.I spent hours going through my messages and deleting them because I received warnings if I didn’t upgrade soon, messages would disappear and if I did upgrade I’d lose my free space. I upgraded and I have my memory back on Apple products but for about a month or two on my Windows 10 laptop that I use for business, it was still showing that warning. Eventually it synced. So before you put all your emails in your gmail feed, check out if the “new gmail”will eat your memory and force an upgrade $$$$ before memory runs out and it’s pay to play. I’ve been a huge fan but I didn’t understand the takeaway of legacy memory. It was supposed to be lifetime but if I added on, it was gone and that’s what happened to “do no harm”

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!

Need to make Gmail more accessible for the user!!!!. Gmail should be more accessible for their users, for example I unfortunately, was faced with having to erase my IPhone - which, ultimately… locked me out of my Gmail Accounts. I had yet to set up a back up Email/Any other verification to help retrieve my Gmail Account. So to conclude, I was locked out of my; EXTREMELY IMPORTANT EMAIL! for about three weeks or so, all because Gmail did not recognize my login and continued trying to “approve” my login as me with multiple number verifications which I understand was attempting to get back into my Gmail account but to which I could not answer! Therefore making the whole situation more stressful and NOT helpful at all although I’d assume the idea was initially to provide help. the problem is.. there was no other alternative to accessing my Email besides logging in from a familiar device, which I couldn’t. OR- answering/ playing the number game to get into the email, OR- already having an alternative email/phone number connected to the account to access it; which once again I did not have…but eventually I wss by the grace of god able to regain access to my account through multiple try fail attempts! Moral of the story… PLEASE come up with some realistic helpful ways to access your email once you have a hard day and are S.O.L !!!!! Thank you sincerely & enjoy your day/ night/evening ! With love, You’re committed Gmail User. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

People Have Different Needs. I was ok with this account when I first joined a few years ago. I usually log on via my phone. When I use the library or my laptop the format seems different. Each time they make improvements I like it less. Perhaps this is not for me or I need to take some Tito arrange my account in a way that suits me, if this is possible. I am quite frustrated with it. I want to get rid of junk mail and trash. I believe I finally found out how to not have archived mail. When I open my email and ask for current mail, hundreds of old mail that I have tried many times before, appear right back in. What is going on? My daughter doesn't understand what I am trying to explain to her. Although she does ask me why I have so much mail. I would like the space on my cell phone to be freed up from those unnecessary emails. Any advice? I have not taken the time to set up a new email account someplace else. If they could help me understand how to maneuver maybe I won't have to contact all my contacts with a new mail address. Right now I hate my account!!

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.

Good Google email App; would be a 5 star with a few minor improvements. I enjoy using the GMail app. It works as expected and it is actually the only email app I use on my phone. However, I do have a couple of suggestion to further improve the app functionality and efficiency. Please add the ability to search for folders when moving messages from the inbox. It is really time consuming and cumbersome to “Move” a message out of the inbox, because you have to manually scroll through all your folders to select the one you want to move to. If there was a search option to quickly find the folder you would like to move the message to it would really improve my productivity on the app. Secondly, if the app could put my account email signature in the message like the desktop version does that would be real nice and help out a lot with my professionalism on the go with my phone. Thanks for your hard work and please consider incorporating these suggestions into the app if possible.

Pretty sad response time from Google. This is a pretty good app by Google. Currently there is a problem that I'm seeing with badge notifications not properly updating. I've tried to remove the app from my phone and reinstall it but that didn't solve the issue. Started with iOS11 so I'm guessing it is related. I would like an option to mark something as read from the notification screen instead of, or in addition to archiving. Maybe I'm alone in this but I don't really use the archive feature. Anyway, 3 stars until the badges issue is resolved. It lets you check your email so it does its job. Nothing flashy or special. Like most of Google's apps. It's functional which is good enough. Dropping rating to 1 star and uninstalling in a week if Google, one of the biggest tech companies in the world, can't fix a notification bug. I mean come on. I'm guessing that at least 1 guys job at Google is to care about the app working. Even if it's just 1 guy he could have already fixed this in a day. Get it together. We give you all our private information willingly and you can't have a guy fix the red badge that a 13 year old kid that is learning to make apps for the first time can edit and change?

Y’all finna get a piece of my mind for this unethical accessory y’all decided to add!. For mobile IOS users: whatever update was the update for the feature “smart compose” (should be calling it dumb compose🙄) is an actual app breaking update. Great job, Google you once again failed everyone👏. Composing an email automatically brings up the keyboard, the smart compose “tip” sits behind the keyboard with an “OK” button behind the keyboard, on the “tip” pop up rendering both of the functions useless. How do you make that big of an error in the program? Their is no way for you to click go “OK” button on the pop up and there is no way to make the keyboard swipe down, therefore making writing an email through the app impossible. Well what does that mean for the people that have the app downloaded? You might have guessed it! It means the app is just wasting space on your phone and giving some corporation, that I rarely ever see making any effort to give back, a whole lot of money. This app is an atrocity, I would either fix it with an update or just completely shutdown the app and take it off the AppStore to save yourselves from the embarrassment y’all have put upon yourself with this app. Truly pathetic and hilariously stupid.😂 But y’all are still richer than me so what do I know, right?

great email app. This is a great app for managing Gmail accounts and other providers. It is easy to use and a clean interface. Not everything is perfect though. First, I would like the ability to re-order my accounts. It seems to just list everything in the order they were added, with no way to change that. This is really annoying as I have my account listed a certain way in every other client. Second, other providers (like Outlook and iCloud) support aliases for sending email yet there is no support for that feature in this app. Third, it does not sync my accounts between iOS devices. I have to add all of my accounts again on each device. I understand that some devices may not want some accounts, but it would be nice if I could choose whether or not to add them from a list. Lastly, I would like to see this app support M1 Macs so I can use this on the desktop (since Gmail’s non-standard IMAP doesn’t work great in some apps).

Draft history panel is needed. There is no draft history panel. The glitch is that multiple versions of a draft are opening at the same time, stacked from oldest to newest in the mobile app. To check a previous email before sending the current, you have to go back and it saves and closes all open drafts one at a time, the newest, older, older and then the oldest, saving that one last. There is no way to close the old drafts first it just rapid closes all of them in reverse order. Now going back into the draft it shows the fist draft ever saved, just the first paragraph written, all the rest is gone forever. Some get lucky by turning off the internet and opening gmail on another device before it gets synced, but not I. Draft history is essential, I’m subscribing to google storage and not able to access my previous versions of drafts. Gmail needs a full makeover of forgiving and worry-free Undo features starting with a draft history panel. Do the right thing, don’t tell me to constantly copy and paste my own drafts into google docs, that’s not a solution. Do it automatically in a draft history panel.

Yes, it can be as bad as everyone says it is. June, 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.

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!

Basic functionality absent. There is no way set “reply all” as the default on my iPhone for my business account. It is set to reply all by default on my desktop but not my phone. This is incredibly annoying and time consuming to correct every time I answer an email. It is three steps to hit send now instead of 1 and very easy to accidentally hit plain reply. I don’t even understand why single reply is the default in the first place. The copied people are copied for a reason, they should be included in the conversation not just a single email in almost all cases. Please fix! There are many help forums complaining about this. Also the signature is confusing and I never know whether it has been included or if it’s correct. And you should be able to switch between individual inboxes from the menu on the left where it says “all inboxes” All inboxes is on by default but counterproductive when I am at work. I want to see work emails only. It is counterintuitive to have to switch accounts on the right when you weren’t even in a different account in the first place. There should be a list of individual inboxes on the left menu below the words “all inboxes” so you can quickly switch between each. At this point the only reason I’m still on this app is because apple can’t search properly and doesn’t have my tags and folders. Please update ASAP

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.

Great mail app except for browser preference. In general I like this mail app a lot. I am happy to have my inbox sorted as it is on the desktop. I wish it was easier to attach documents from “Pages” and “Files” instead of only from the camera, recent attachments and drive. But my biggest complaint is this: When I go to open a link from an email and it asks if I want to use chrome or safari, I choose safari because that is my preference on my iPhone. I switch off the little “ask me every time” button. The very next time I go to open a link from an email, it could be the exact same link one second later, the browser preference window opens again, with the button switched on. It adds an unnecessary step every time I look at things from an email. Also, my saved safari things don’t all translate over to the safari that pops up within the app. I know you want me to use chrome because it is your product, but you offer a choice so it would be nice if that choice worked 😊

Very Good but.. needs some fixin. I like the app, it’s very easy to use, have and change into other accounts (if you can log in💔). I recently got a new phone and set everything up then I finally get to logging in to my email accounts but what bothers me is that google isn’t currently working cause it instantly crashes and closes when I try to open it even if I delete and reinstall it on my device. After I tried logging in with google multiple times I use the “other” option and I put my email in but when I click next it tells me to use the google sign in option which isn’t working so now I’m locked out of all my emails for like 3 weeks now. I did try the other log in options that wouldn’t need the google tab but it’s not possible for me to use because I don’t have an office 360 or Microsoft account.I wish there would be an option to log in with an email without it having to open the unnecessary google tab.

Bug. My biggest problem with the Gmail app is the limited options for adding attachments to emails. I use Outlook as my primary mobile app because I can attach files saved in iCloud, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, my phone storage, other OneDrive accounts and more. I also would prefer much more formatting options, especially for custom signatures. We are using our mobile devices for email more and more every day. I’d like to be able to use my html signature, or even just add an image or change font styles. Lastly, I don’t like how the Gmail app is the key holder for every Google app on my phone. In a perfect world, I could much more conveniently sign in and out if individual apps one at a time. I know I can’t realistically expect that from Google though. Just another reason I and many others prefer other apps. There is a bug in the app on the chat page now. I have to individually open chats from links in emails, because when I click the chat icon at the bottom of the screen, the list is empty. I am on the latest iOS on an iPhone XS.

More issues with Gmail than Hotmail. I decided to start using Gmail on my iPhone for personal emails instead of Hotmail, but have encountered problems using it that I’ve never had with Hotmail. First, when composing an email, you can’t swipe it down to refer to another email in your inbox. You have to copy what you’ve typed, tap X to cancel the new email, look at the other email to get your information and then start your email over again by pasting onto a new email because it often doesn’t save the draft of the email I started. Second, it’s more difficult to copy a photo in the body of your email or add as an attachment. Sometimes it will do neither and ask to add it as a file or on Google Drive. Third, and most importantly, it seems to have nowhere near the storage capacity as Hotmail. I’ve used Hotmail for over ten years and never had a notification that I was running out of storage and that I should buy more. I’ve only used Gmail for about five years and I’m getting the notification that I have 83% of my storage used. I also have Google Photos app, so that may have contributed to that, but I have a number of photos and recordings on Hotmail too. The storage issue is the reason I am going back to Hotmail.

No unauthorized activity or malware but Google signed me out!. I noticed one of my 18 gmail accounts was missing from the gmail ios app today so I went to add it back. When I tried to sign in it said “We detected suspicious activity, which shows that there may be malware on this device. Malware can be used to gain access to your personal account information, like your password.” I’m using the newest version of iOS and there’s no malware on my device. I have 17 other gmail accounts I was signed into that were unaffected by this false claim of “malware”. I’m also enrolled in Google “advanced protection program” so I’m using ONLY u2f security keys for 2-fa. Nobody can login unless they have one of those keys and my password. I checked my recent activity and it said “suspicious app” and the location was where I live. So the gmail ios app is “suspicious”? Or is this a bug because I had 17 other gmail accounts on the ios app? Come on google, get it together! At least notify people in the app that an account was automatically signed out recently! Is there aby way to prevent this happening again? I would rather get hacked for real than have to deal with this nonsense of google incorrectly thinking I have malware.

No sign out. I have had my Gmail account for many years & have always been pleased with it up to now. I recently upgraded to a new cell phone & had difficulty getting Gmail to unlock my account to give me access with the 2 step verification turned on. I eventually got in through recovery and turned off the 2 step verification process. I discovered that your gmail app had changed & no longer had the “sign out” option under the Gmail user profile. I couldn’t close & log out the my Gmail account app from my new cell phone. I looked under the Help tips for the log out options. It stated the only way to close & log out of your Gmail account is to remove the app from your account device manager or leave it open. Also, it stated depending on which device you're logged into will depend on if you have the sign out option access or not. I have it on my laptop when I log into Gmail. My old cellphone also had the sign out option for Gmail so I could log out of my account, but it’s not an option on my new cellphone. It leaves my Gmail account unlocked & accessible to potential users or hackers through the back door. This is poor security programming in the system’s application. It should be fixed immediately.

Simple, I like it that way. 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.

Stop pushing me to download Chrome. I’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”

Select All. Hi google, Can you please add a select all option to the app? It’s almost to the point of having RSI having to tap the emails I have to delete in group lots after being out of internet service and then coming back into a service area to then have to delete so many emails without the option of selecting all. Other then that, great job, well done, amazing work google mail team, you’re all fabulous! Have a great day where ever you are ;)

Love The App! Push Notification Problem in iOS11. I’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!

Can’t attach files. It’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).

Email stuffing up. I’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 :)

Can’t attach anything. It 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.

Not working. Love 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

Removed on iPad and only using on iPhone. The app simply does not sync properly. For example if you archive mail on one device, it won’t be archived on the other and sometimes old archived email pops up from time to time. The only way to fix this is to keep readjusting the inbox type - a very annoying bug. The best way to use gmail on apple devices is to only use the app on iPhone, which seems to work well, and use the browser version on iPad.

Heart is there, but it’s fading fast. I 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.

App is not up to par. I 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.

Notifications, & Meet. Firstly 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.

Dated way to use email. After 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 once...it 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.

Notification issues. On 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...

Doesn't sync properly and that annoying bunch up of emails..... Firstly, it never syncs properly! I have a nice tidy filing system when I log in on the computer so the inbox itself is usually clear... but the files always remain in my inbox when using the app! Really annoying when you're OCD about filing! The emails weird order is just annoying.. I can't make sense of the order and sometimes I have to wait until I get onto a computer as I can't reply to the latest email in the thread but some random one from the middle... Why? Is it that hard to just make it show the latest email up front and work backwards in a timeline order? It's too hard to use properly... Theses bugs have been going on for years!

Extremely disappointed with Google services. This 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.

Loses files. I 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?

No block sender option in app. I would give a much higher rating if I could actually block spam senders on the app. I have searched for a solution and one doesn’t seem to exist. I also cannot seem to find a way to permanently delete folders. Can’t delete at all from the app and when I delete from a computer they still remain on the app. Would be helpful to be able to move flagged emails to the top of the inbox rather than have them scattered throughout. I think this is only an issue on the app.

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.

Good until security writting thing. I 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.

Great app but can you look into this. Been 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.

New update has bugs. Sometime in the last two updates the ability to get notifications on my iphone when I have received a new email has disappeared. I have missed so many important work emails coming through because the notifications are no longer happening at all, even though none of my settings have changed and I used to get them all fine. My job means I am not often on a laptop and receiving notifications of new emails means I’m aware of them and can check them quickly even without being near a computer. Issue needs fixing ASAP

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.

Great MUA but flawed implementation in iPhone. 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.

No response since IOS 13 released. I 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

Fabulous app, however there’s a few minor bugs. I 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

Latest Update has a bug? Feb 24. The latest update at the end of Feb 24 has the iPad version at least going strange. I can open a message as normal, but if I go to another app and then come back, the message is full screen and I can’t get out of it unless I close, then reopen the app. Google responded quickly - which was nice - but sent me to a help screen that had nothing to do with the issue of not being able to get out of a message that has gone full screen. The back arrow is non-responsive and “revert auto-sizing” does nothing helpful. The only thing that fixes it, is to close and then re-open the app. I can’t see a setting that fixes this.

Needs basic improvements. Google, 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!!

Unable to add photos glitch. Normally 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

Please fix phone call bug. Phone 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.

Great app - needs iOS11 Optimisation. I 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!

Signature block. This 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.

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.

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.

Unable to mark email as unread. After 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!

Frustrating. I have 3 devices I use for gmail. Two are Apples and one is Samsung. When I swap between devices Google sometimes what’s me to verify the device as a trusted one..as a one off verification. I do so and have to keep doing this even if I tick the box that it’s a trusted device. Secondly I have two different gmail accounts for different purposes when I swap between these accounts I am forced to continually log in to the least used account as if it’s a new account. Then I get an email saying someone has tried to login to this account from a new location or device ‘was it me’. I confirm it was me then get a message that I already has an account with that user name. Very frustrating. Often the message is that it’s a one off verification…which it is not.

Weird behaviours. The 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.

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.

Thoughts on Gmail App. I 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.

Will make sure you are charged extra. The system does not recognise my id in my country of origin. It just pick a random country and disallow you to use google giftcard purchased from the local supermarket. Their customer service is equally as bad. Contact them 3 times for different matters and they have never resolved any of the issues I raised. They are good at passing you around and non will take responsibility. The worst part is that when they cannot solve your issue, they will make up story that you didn’t buy the giftcard legally and absolve to sweep the problem away. They are only good at upsetting you and drive up your blood pressure.

Annoyed. I’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

Tired of being signed out of my accounts!. Seriously Google, so tired of being signed out of my email! Having to sign back in & not being allowed to use the same password as the last few times when I forget it!!! Making a new password means I forget it all the time! You’re such hard work 😓 Also why can’t I do a search on all emails from a particular source & delete them all at once from the app? I get multiple junk mail/spam in my inbox & when I delete them or move them to my junk folder, I want to choose to do this with all future messages from the same source.

Disappointed. 2024: you’d think Google could afford to be a bit more careful and precise with their updates rather than sloppily “fix” something thereby causing new BUGS. No better than Apple & Microsoft unfortunately. Since the last “update” I continually get “oops something went wrong” whenever I multitask between Gmail and other apps. Try hiring real programmers instead of script kiddies… Inconsistent and unintuitive GUI. Naming convention of web-based Gmail ignored in favour of programmers' preference. Cumbersome navigation. Coming from Google I had expected something much better...

No notification badge on my Gmail app suddenly. I’ve always been so pleased with prompt and quick notification on my Gmail App. Now I get it on my Mail App on my iPhone 15 pro but not on my Gmail app. I’m losing money on my business as it relies on my gmails. It started suddenly yesterday. Talked to Apple support , did any type of trouble shooting related to app or iPhone even Network resetting but to no avail. Even when I delete an email the number on my Gmail app on my phone screen shows it & when I click on empty bin then it takes a while for the number of emails disappear from my app - help please thx

Snoozing. I have GMail on an iPhone, iPad and PC. I get a lot of email, and I often use snooze as part of how I organise items, such as diarising certain items for an office day, or a hobby day or whatever. The whole idea of snoozing is often about moving an item out of the inbox as much as it is about re-diarising an item. It is so annoying that snooze doesn’t remove it from other devices. The item is shown on other devices in the primary box telling me it was snoozed (der.. that would be right I just did it!), and you then have to go through and use ‘archive’ to clear snoozed items from the inbox. It is like GMail is device centric instead of being person centric. The other thing that is annoying is how the interface diverges depending on what device you are using - you would think that something as simple as the ‘send’ button as just one example, would be in the same place no matter what device you are using. But it’s not. It’s like there are different teams writing the app for the different operating systems without any overall interface standards.

No light mode option. I have my phone in dark mode... but I want my emails in light mode because then I can see it the way it was actually sent without having gmail apply it’s own broken dark mode adjustments to my email... What’s the harm in having a setting to force light mode for us users who have our phone in dark mode but want light mode for emails?!! What’s the harm??? Please bring the option back!!!!

Flawed basic features. I used to set emails sent to gmail account to be automatically forwarded to another email account. These emails pile up in gmail inbox and are still marked as unread. Recently wanted to separate the two mailboxes due to clutter, hence downloaded gmail. Faced with many usability issues that should not exist for a service of this scale. - No way of quickly selecting a group of emails other than tapping them one by one - No way of selecting all emails in a folder/inbox - No way of marking all emails in inbox as read - By default swiping both left and right on an email archives it, setting to change this is hard to find. - Poor sync with desktop/website (I’ve selected all 2000+ emails as read from desktop yet they still remain unread in app) - No log out button, had to go through “manage accounts on this device -> delete account from device” Why bother adding other more complicated features when the basic ones are so flawed.

Broken and not worth your time. I 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.

Absolutely amazing but slight issue. I’m not sure if this is supposed to happen but when I was trying to sign in to Gmail I clicked sign in with google so I did but then it showed up with something that said something like.. “Just to make sure it’s you google has sent an email to Gmail, when you get that email we would like you to click yes.” But the thing is I was signing in to Gmail. Thank you so much google if you read this and I’d just like to say your apps are amazing!

Learn the importance of visual language. The 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.

Issues with attachments on work email account. I can’t for the life of me figure how to attach any actual documents to emails when using my work account on my iPhone. Works without any issues on my personal account, but as soon as I switch accounts I can only attach photos. It really shouldn’t be this difficult. I’ve wasted hours trying to find an online solution, and the best I’ve found is that some settings must be changed on a computer. I’ve been happy with gmail preciously, but am now starting to look for other email solutions.

Dark Mode. Still waiting for Dark mode on Gmail.

Efficace. Pratique, simple, efficace... je l'adore !

Don’t retire Inbox App. I literally hate this app, after having used Inbox by Google app for a long time. This app doesn’t have the Low Priority bundle which used to organize so better and also u can group delete promotions and social network emails. Very disappointed and confused by this decision from google

Bring back Inbox. Googles Inbox app was far better than their gmail app. Bring it back!!!

Notifications not showing. After today’s update, notifications do not show anymore. How something so simple could be missed when the new update was tested

Bundling. Google is shutting down INBOX app replacing back gmail but GMAIL app doesn’t have smart bundling INBOX app has. Things get better everyday here it’s reverse. Feels frustrating.

Replacement for Inbox, my ars. Just give me Inbox back please

Made much worse in the latest update. In order to promote Meet, instead of making a separate app Google added a giant button on the bottom of Gmail's screen. There's not a lot of real estate on your phone so I accidentally hit it all the time. Another terrible forced update from a tech company that serves its strategic goals instead of users, but that's how free products work - you're the product, not the customer.

Why the ads?!. Google already has a role in majority areas of our online life.. of which they understandably fill with ads. Seeing an ad in my EMAIL.. infuriating

Works great. Great app!

Dark mode. We are in 2020, We need dark mode in Gmail.

Works great. Everything you would want.

Update caused app not working. After recent update the app keeps throwing no connection error and won’t sync emails. I can use everything else even google app and maps at the same time but only this app will show no connection error and won’t work on wifi or data connection whatsoever Please fix.

Why?. Inbox worked wonderfully. Why did Google have to kill it?

Good but.... No issues with how gmail operates in terms of sending, receiving and organizing emails. However dark mode is still unavailable to me... What’s going on?

Constant Ads in Inbox. Was fine but recently my box is mandated with Ads. Removed all target info but still persisted. I don’t have time for the garbage being sent. Deleted the app. Using the native Apple app and there are no ads.

This is a downgrade from Inbox. While this is better than the old gmail app it is definitely a step backwards from Inbox. I miss the feature of being able to delete all low priority mail at once.

Dark mode ipadOS. Hi I’m not able to activate dark mode on my iPad I don’t see the options in settings. iPad 7 gen. software version 13.3.1 (17D50) App version 6.0.200223 Please fix

Dark Mode. Help! I can’t change my app to dark mode because I’m unable to find Theme under Settings in the Gmail app for iOS 13. Any ideas why? Both my phone and app have the latest updates.

Not showing notifications. My husband updated his gmail and no notifications do not have the preview and only say « you have new message », it is really bad and now l’m afraid to update my app.

Notifications “New Message”. Every update removes all information of the notification making them effectively useless… Seeing “New Message” is pointless, please revert this nonsense. You need to restart your device every update to resolve which is annoying. Only gmail has this issue…

Très satisfaite et bravo !. Bonjour à tous, Je suis très satisfaite d'utiliser le Gmail car il est rapide et efficace. Merci et au plaisir

Dark Mode on IOS. Would be nice if dark mode worked.

not updating emails. since Tuesday i’ve been trying to look at my emails on the promotion folder and updates folder and they don’t load, it’s telling me No Connection. I've tried with my data and different wifi connections and still not working. Just did the latest update and nothing.

Conversation View Off?. Can we please have the ability to turn conversation view off! Thank you!

Can't remove accounts?. Google has taken away the ability to remove accounts from the login page. The only way is to clear Safari data, which is a pain. Not sure of the rationale - please bring back the remove option!

latest app update results in jerkiness when scrolling. on iphone 13 pro max os 15.1! and still no font size options in each email?

Inbox over Gmail. I get notifications saying to switch to Gmail because inbox is leaving. However, I enjoy the layout if inbox and hate the layout of Gmail. You suggest that you have added the features from inbox but I beg to differ. Unfortunately, I will have to resort to a third party email app.

Update has made the app non-functioning. I’ve been using gmail for ages with no problems, but was told today I had to update the app to use it. Once updated, the app kept saying there was “no connection” when on either wifi or data, even though I have gmail allowed for data usage, and my wifi was working fine. Now it’ll connect, but when composing a message I can’t send it or schedule send, I’m just stuck on the screen and the email does not automatically save to drafts like it used to. I’m confused and disappointed that this app is suddenly useless now.

Dark mode isn’t available :(. There’s no theme option when you go to settings. I have ios 13.4 and have tried reinstalling the app but theme still doesn’t show up.

Missing inbox!. The old inbox was much nicer looking, cleaner and easier to sort. This new gmail looks more dated somehow. Disappointed I had to change...

No preview with new update. The only reason this is getting two stars is because of the new update! I love Gmail have been using it for years but now with this new update when I get an email the notification says "you have a new message" it doesn't say who/what it's from. I checked my notifications and everything is still the same, please change.

March 2020 still no dark mode ios13. I mean, come on. The app is useless to me if it's 100 times brighter than all my other apps. Get your stuff together.

DARK MODE. Why on the world are you holding off on dark mode? My eyes burn.

DARK MODE??. I don’t have the option for dark mode. I have the newest IOS that’s silly

Absolutely horrible. Absolutely horrendous

you have a new message. my notifications have been changed where i can only see “you have a new message.” i can’t see what the actual email is until i open the app. pls change this so it’s not mandatory i absolutely can’t stand it.

Swipe to snooze. Need to add swipe to snooze. Only then will I switch from Google inbox app

can’t download. am being told in inbox that i must download gmail but can’t download it.... i liked inbox

Finally no message threads!. Awesome that you can now turn off conversation view in the app. Thanks for fixing this finally!!

Copy/paste. Since new update i cannot copy and paste into a messenger from email.

Dark mode please ???. Dark mode / night mode please

Inbox is way better. I likes how the inbox looked This app has poor layout and the only reason. I use this is to send more that one attachment We need to have the ability to CHOOSE if we want conversation view Seriously?

Dark mode not available. Seriously how long does it take for a rollout to finish? Still no theme option in settings. Ver 6.0.200224 and iOS 13.4

No badge notifications since iOS 15.4. I need to physically open the Gmail app I'm order to get badge notifications to work. All my settings are fine (background app refresh, badges, etc are all on). This only started after iOS 15.4 and I have even gone as far as deleting the app for a month (and deleted any iCloud backup) but still, badges will only show after I've opened the app and downloaded the emails (have even tried leaving Gmail in the background, not force closed). I've been using Edison Mail instead and have no issues, guess I'll need to stick with Edison.

Pathetic. Refusing to update their app for months all so they don’t have to show you how much of your privacy they are pillaging. Like a toddler having his popsicle taken away.

Dark mode. Dark mode is needed for iOS 13!!!

Simplicity gone in favour of advanced features I will never use. Using this app on an iPad w latest iOS. Moving the cursor is almost impossible when one os composing an e-mail and has made a mistake and needs to change one letter. Also using Bold or Italic or Underline, they do not turn blue when you tap them to show they are on, which leads to confusion. The more features they add, useless to the average person, the more cumbersome this app is to use.

Multi-device issues. Doesn't save drafts consistently.. Biggest issue I have with this is that it seems to load your draft emails from a local cache, sometimes blowing away any changes you've made on other devices, or in a browser, leading to inconsistencies and lost changes. Gmail for web has an indicator constantly telling you that your draft is being saved. This app seems not to bother saving drafts until you close them. It should behave more like web, constantly saving as you go, for improved continuity across devices. I've also run into situations where I close an email, see the "saved" indicator, then go to reopen it and see the older version of the email. What a terrible experience. Honestly some basic versioning syncing of emails shouldn't be too hard. I'd recommend just using the web site, especially if you're on an iPad. The app is barely usable if you're doing any serious work. It is not always the case that a given product's web site to be better than a native app. Congrats to the gmail web team–you are doing it right.

Our real CampusWeb. It is safe to say that after all these years being on the Google platform out in a Pacific Island dot on the World Atlas, I cannot express enough gratitude for all the wonderful strides at Google Headquarters that jettisoned many useful apps today! As a public school teacher on Guam, I tried to use my Google Classroom but the ball fell at The Guam Public School systems' headquarters after several attempts not only contacting IT department, but also going physically before its appointed liaison in order to digitize my classroom. It did not go live which sucked major although no fault whatsoever on Google, Inc. Maybe one day I may learn all the different apps you've created but I crave tutorials less than 3 minutes since that is the attention span of our students today no matter where the are located. My thanks and appreciation always Google!

Little benefit over using Mail. I 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.

Emails aren’t opening correctly. This is in reference to the iPad version of Gmail. For the past week or so, as I am swiping through the giant number of messages in my inbox, everything loads fine until I get about five messages in. From that point on, an email will open and I’ll see the subject line, but the entire body of the message is black. So I have to mark it as unread, close the app out, and relaunch if I want to see the message. Then I’ll make it through about five more messages and it happens again. It isn’t my Wi-Fi connection, because it happens every day after I’ve gone through a couple of messages. And my phone and TV are fine, so I’m not losing connection to my wireless or Internet service. I downloaded the update earlier in the week, and also the one that came out two days later that supposedly offered bug fixes and performance improvements. It looks like there are still bugs and inconsistent performance issues.

Great but just one thing. I’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.

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.

Functional, but neglected. This 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

The worst email app available. I 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 🥺

Notifications STILL doesn't show up. I have set all my notifications correctly in Gmail (for all email, not just important) and it is also set correctly in the settings app (no focus modes and not on silent mode). Yet I only receive notifications for my Gmail some of the time. Most times, I don't receive any notifications or badges and I'll have to go into the app to find out that I was missing some emails. I have tried to restart my phone as well as reinstall Gmail but nothing works. I have also looked at the help website on Google and that did not help fix the problem. Edit for March 6, 2022: I have reinstalled the app twice in the span of three days. Notifications for new email only worked for less than one day before being completely broken again. Strangely, I was able to get two factor authentication notifications when logging in to my Google account on another device. However, I still get no notifications for new emails. I've also sent feedback to Google in the app multiple times. What is going on?

Inbox view is annoying. I use the gmail app on my iPhone because the mail app that comes on the iPhone was giving me issues with gmail. Anyway, i had to get used to the view in gmail. No biggie. It’s east to figure out. Pleasing on the eyes. My biggest gripe is that the labels are set up like the desktop version and you have to click on each one to see your emails. If I’m on the go and want to check emails really quickly, I don’t want to have to click on 4 or 5 different labels. The work around to that is All Mail. Cool. HOWEVER if you moved an email to a folder that you created, it still shows up under the all mail selection and you cannot move it on the phone because it says it’s in that folder. Okay great but why am I seeing it? It shouldn’t be in the all mail view. All mail view should be the view for all your new mail in one shot. Please fix this app

Second one I needed to make review. I had to resend my review because it did not send for some reason so let’s go over one dissent ain’t working so you said a message to somebody and you want to delete it because it had spelling errors you didn’t want to edit it because it would take so long and so you go to your sandbox to delete it because you’re trying to delete it there but you know it ain’t gonna work so you go to your sandbox and you go to go to your sandbox and you go check in it does not work at all I said you haven’t said anything well that’s funny I’m working the other Gmail that I sent girl did you delete them for me but when I go check I see you did with them. No I wanna know why do you why this is getting pretty annoying I’ve been dealing with it ever since I started using Gmail first it was the inbox not working second it was descends now it’s the sense again but then the third thing was so many trash mail. Then the first thing was the app phone glitching. Just so many things happening with this app

Erasing emails. The only thing I have against gmail is you can’t delete multiple emails at the same time am talking about the mobile/app version. It would be cool to have an option to delete multiple emails at the same time. I’ve had gmail for 10 years now since 2010 I believe and it’s alittle annoying but not that big of a deal....you can’t delete multiple emails at the same time. Is there a reason why you guys don’t have that option?? Other thank that gmail is the email option to have. I had yahoo as well but my account was hacked and my password was changed that was the second problem I had with yahoo so I stuck with gmail as my primary and there hasn’t been any one mess with my account. Thank you hope you guys had that option in the future am sure that would help out a decent amount of people. Thank you

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.

Allow iPhone preview of JUST senders name. not email preview. For quick visibility but also privacy.. I have Gmail notifications turned on on my iPhone. So when I get an email, I see the sender, and the first few lines of the email body. This doesn’t allow for much privacy. I would prefer to just have the option of having a Gmail notification with the senders name. The only two options you have are to just have it, tell you you have a new email, with no context at all, or it shows the body of the email in the preview. This is helpful for me during work presentations when I’m sharing my screen or just trying to maintain privacy, but also quick feasibility, when looking at my phone, and being able to see who sent me an email versus having to open the app to see who sent it.

Simple and easy with minor flaw. I 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!

Not bad but.. updated the app - nothing really better but it started freezing. Ok, the app itself is fine - not bad at all (ie better than the stock iphone email app); Udated the app - nothing really better/much different (besides google annoyingly pushing its Meet more and more to try to bite off Zoom marketshare; note - thx for at least allowing to turn off that stupid footer bar with meet that just took extra space) but it started freezing (early may 2021)... Also, why is there the copy / paste issue?? This issue has been happening on this app for like a few years and does not change with updates - in fact, this issue started happening after an update a couple years ago and all future updates really did not improve much - maybe only slightly cosmetically better UI.. pls fix the copy / paste issue - ie you cannot easily scroll and select text in an email...

I’m hating my GMail Account, but feel stuck. Ok, 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.

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.

The Good and the Bad. The 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.

Not ready for Inbox users until remainder show up inline with email. I totally get why Google is killing Inbox for Gmail. Inbox was a test bed for features that would eventually make it into Gmail, and now that the test is done, it’s much more efficient to support a single email product. I believe in the long run the long run, this will be a win/win for everybody. Unfortunately, they left out a feature that is critical to my and other users’ workflows. My email inbox is my to do list. I only look there to decide what I need to do. Inbox for Gmail engrained this workflow and it is close to flawless. Google suggests to use Tasks for a workaround. This is not close to the same. Now I have to look at two places and triage what is the most important thing to work on. With Inbox, it takes just a couple of clicks to add a reminder. Once saved, it shows up in your inbox in line with the other emails. Or you can set a future date and it will be hidden until that time. The only true workaround I’ve found is to email myself whenever I need a reminder. This takes several more steps (New email, to: me, subject: something to do, Send, when email arrives, click it and snooze until the appropriate time). This takes more effort and feels like a hacky solution. Google, please, for the love of every one of your loyal guinea pigs who helped to improve Gmail’s usability, add the reminder feature before cutting off access to Inbox!

Best mail app in a weak field - could be awesome. I’ve tried every mail app out there and while some have better features than gmail (snooze messages, Dropbox integration) most of them have fatal flaws around performance, reliability of syncing message or search changes that render them unusable- including apple’s iOS mail client. Gmail is the best of the field because it is fast and the most reliable. That said, it has a few things I’d love to see addressed to make it 5 stars: 1) Freezing - the app occasionally hangs on the message list page, especially when going from landscape to portrait mode. Sometimes it recovers, other times you have to kill it. My guess is that it’s doing a remote call and the UI is waiting on it to finish when it shouldn’t be 2) drilling into the to and from fields. Apple iOS makes this easy - you can click someone’s name to find their phone number from you contacts and call or text them. 3) replying or forwarding specific threads in messages is cumbersome. Gmail buries this action in an ellipsis when it needs its own small icon. Apples iOS app does this well 4) unified inbox, starred and sent messages for multiple accounts - all the other apps do this well 5) message snoozing - outlook for iOS and mail (fka gladly do) do this well 6) Dropbox integration for file attachments

Swipe Function Lost. First 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.

Attachments only from Google Drive 👎. Every time I think Gmail is getting better, I am disappointed. I keep switching between the Outlook app and Gmail app. I want to stick with Gmail, but Outlook seems to have everything I need. For example, I love that you can switch between apps in the side menu of outlook. Previously in the gmail app you could switch accounts in the side menu as well, but they were horizontally pinned at the top which was inconvenient and ugly. Now it’s where the search bar is and that’s cool. So I downloaded it back, thinking it finally had everything that I needed. Now I’m deleting it again. I’m a college student and I send a lot of attachments over email. My main cloud drive is OneDrive because it is linked with my laptop and so I can automatically sync my documents to the cloud without having to manually save it there a bunch of times. The fact that Gmail only allows attachments from the Photo library and Google Drive is so frustrating. It’s also not just about me using outlook but sometimes I save documents directly to my phone or the Apple cloud. Gmail does not allow me to attach none of those documents. Just when I thought I had it all, I was disappointed again. I really like Gmail and it has nice features, but it isn’t not practical for what I need. Unfortunately, I have to go back to Outlook.

Didn’t notify me when I received a time-sensitive email. This app is supposed to notify me when I get an email. I’ve set my phone to receive notifications from this app. I was waiting for a time-sensitive email. My phone was next to me, and I never received the notification. I suddenly just stopped receiving notifications for no discernible reason! I guess Google is comfortable and no longer needs to provide products that work. Gmail, Google Meet, Chromebooks, and all other Google products are absolute garbage. I’d like my tax dollars back :) Additionally, now emails in the Promotions and Social categories never load. It says “no connection” when the connection is strong. Now the notifications on my phone just say “you have a new message” and don’t tell me who sent it or a preview of the message. That’s not a notification. It’s just that Google is garbage. And App Support does nothing so I can only leave a review that Google will never read, so their products will continue to be terrible.

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!

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!

No support if there are errors. User 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.

Have to scroll down to see the most recent message?. The most recent message in an email thread is at the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down to find the most recent message. Why can’t we change it so the most recent message is at the top? I can change this on my computer with a Chrome extension, but there is no way to do that on the Gmail mobile app. This is extremely frustrating when I have long email threads with multiple replies. I want to open the email and immediately see the most recent message right there at the top, not have to search for it. There needs to be a feature added. Apple Mail has this feature. This alone makes me want to go back to Apple Mail. It also seems like I can only get notifications for the email that is logged in. I want to get notifications for my two emails logged in to Gmail. Do you not want users to use your app?

It’s okay but could use some updates. For 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!

Notifications & Receiving. I do beta testing and I’m going to be forced to change emails because ever since the IOS update, Goggle can’t get this app together and fixed to where it works properly! I’m missing beta opportunities which are time sensitive because an email that is sent to me at 11:14am, doesn’t arrive to my inbox until 2:45pm and I get no notification of new email and don’t even get the new emails when I try and refresh to check for them. I cannot sit on this app all day and keep checking for new email to make sure I don’t miss something I’m supposed to do for an existing test or to see if there are invites for new ones, not to mention the rest of my regular emails that the same thing is happening with. I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled, checked every possible setting and nothing is working and it’s on both the app and the main gmail program. What in the actual heck is going o ??? Gmail used to be so reliable and now it’s just checked out. I don’t get it but I’m about at my limit and ready to say forget it. Please please fix this!

Almost Perfect. The app loads very quickly, and hasn’t crashed on me yet. I manage three different e-mails as well, and it’s very easy to switch between them and see which ones have new messages. The spam and trash folders empty automatically after 30 days which is also a nice feature. The one problem I have with the app, is there is no select all button. Sometimes I will archive e-mails instead of deleting them, or will simply have them in my inbox and need to delete them. When this happens, usually I want to delete 95% of my messages in the inbox or all mail folder. It would be easier to select all and then deselect the few messages I need to keep rather than meticulously select each individual message. It’s kind of silly that you have this amazing company known for their technological prowess, but they can’t put a simple select all button in.

Left side menu random. Left side menu randomly appears when opening the app and when switching between categories. Have to close and re-open app to get menu. Sometimes it stays, sometimes not. Still broken Was ok for a bit, but started random appearance of left side menu. Still broken GOOGLE! Nope, latest version still broke! GOOGLE, please fix Ok, here is what I observed. If I haven’t used the app for a while there is no menu (portrait mode). I close the app, re-open and menu appears. Then I use the app, and close it. If I re-open the app after a few minutes, the menu appears. Wait a long time, open the app, no menu. Latest version seems to fix menu issue. Thanks Oops, spoke to soon. Still random menu issue. What’s up, eh? Nope, still not fixed. Hey GOOGLE! Open app first time, no left side menu. Close it and open again, menu appears. Be going on since ipados15 started. HEY GOOGLE, PLEASE FIX YOUR APP. PLEASE, Nope not this time either! Is it really that hard? Looks like menu issue cannot be fixed by Google. Sad.

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.

Down graded a perfectly good product. The 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.

You can do better. Whenever someone leaves an extremely low star review, I always think they are mad. I half-expect them to write in all-caps, yell at the screen, and use exclamations points everywhere. So first of all, I’m totally chill. I just bought a brand new iPad Pro and I downloaded 10 different email apps to test them out and see which one was the best for me. I am actually pumped! Reasons for low-star review: - UNCLEAN: When you clear your inbox, you want your eyes to be directed toward the most important information. Unfortunately, I found my eyes locked on the least important information while I was using the app. - FOLDER USAGE: I added something to a folder and it disappeared completely. (Toggling between my folder list from the “move to” option) Obviously I understand some of this could be not knowing how to use the app, but there was no instruction on how to use it when I opened it. I also come from an engineering background, and am really good at this stuff. If I can’t figure it out, who can? I had really hoped that customizability would be better and more abundant as well. These are my biggest complaints. IT’S GOOGLE! I really have enjoyed a lot of their products. I use Google Calendar more than the calendar from Apple. Although it’s not perfect, it’s better than the Apple calendar. I guess I just thought they were the elite, so I held them to a higher standard. Thank you

A truly terrible app. I don’t write reviews but the gmail team sent me email saying Big Brother had seen I wasn’t using their app, so I had to try it. I use Apple email so I will compare. I have six email accounts (3 google, yahoo, att, Apple). Apple lets me see one integrated inbox or I can choose just one. Gmail makes you switch between each one every time by selecting a tiny circle on the bottom left or three lines at the upper left. Very cumbersome. Apple uses Settings for my email accounts, all easy to use and all the same to create. Gmail makes me go through hoops to attach the other accounts and the inbox for each account is tied to one of my google accounts, so they share inboxes and I have to decide which of my 3 gmails to use and remember for the other 3. Apple lets me see all the folders of all my email accounts and select them by showing a third window pane on the left. Gmail doesn’t do this at all. The list that comes up is only for the current of my 3 gmails. No folders from other accounts. Apple pops up a window for new email that fills middle third of screen with the inbox/email shown greyed out in background, a nice reminder of what I might be creating a new email for. Gmail fills the entire screen with a new email and on my large iPad Pro it is very, very annoying and jolts me so, I have to close it to remember what I was thinking. This was all in the first five minutes. I didn’t waste any more time, so look elsewhere for an in-depth review.

I Hate Workspace. I used to enjoy using GMail, but with this Workspace it seems that all I do is waste time trying to make decisions as to which message is least important & erase it to get below 15gb storage. I have enough storage on my own network to store all of the mails and still have >2TB allocated to email message & I don’t need “Workspace” to hold them for me. All of those messages about buying more space make GMail’s purchase transparent. I am still trying to figure out how I got roped into “Workspace” in the first place, & I when I tried just downloading all of messages IAW their instructions I couldn’t get it done. I wish GMail would find a way to allow me to store my new messages so I wouldn’t need to be wasting my time trying to get below 15gb (no sure if that is even possible, I frequently delete >1,000 emails only to not change my “over 15gb limit” At least I can still store the 15GB of email for now, that alone is the reason why I added that second star to the posted rating.

Overall a great app with a few flaws. Gmail delivers a good email experience free of glitches and bugs that have plagued competitors that I've tested. The only issues I have with the app are: 1) too many ads 2) mediocre file attachment system. Just look at Outlook mobile. Then copy it. For example, why can't we look through the different photo albums on our iPhones when attaching photos? Instead it forces us into the Moments album only. Where's the support for attaching from other cloud services? Google drive is the only option. 3) not enough control over notifications. I'd like to be able to mute all email notifications except for messages that come from a certain person or are sent to a certain label (Google's name for inbox subfolders). Instead, the options for notifications are: all new mail, primary only or none. Why not give us more control? I only want to be notified of an email from my immediate family and a handful of others. Besides them everyone else can kindly wait until I choose to actively check my own email. I'd rather not be bombarded with constant notifications on my phone, tablet and watch for promotions, newsletters, etc.. And the "primary only" option relies on Google's ability to decide which of my messages are high priority, which Google isn't very good at. Resolve these three issues and this app gets 5 starts! Thanks!

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!!!

The Gmail App is Inferior. Update: How is there no select all button in this app? The most prestigious software company in the world and they left out a basic table stakes UI feature from their second oldest product line? What kind of madness is this? ********** Google had a wonderful email app called Inbox. They just killed it. They’ve offered their original app as an alternative but it is inferior by far. It makes the gmail app feel like an email client from 2008. 1) Swipe action is not customizable. Inbox you could at least snooze with a swipe. In this app I have to click on the menu button and then click snooze. 2) Inbox would bundle categories of emails in your main inbox automatically so you could see them and delete or archive them all at once. In this app I have to go into each category and delete each email. Also Inbox was better at smartly notifying you of important emails. 3) Inbox would recognize travel emails and bring them back for you when the day of your travel so you could quickly access your itinerary for flights and hotels. 4) Inbox had one touch unsubscribe for newsletters and shopping that you no longer look at. 5) Inbox had reminders that you could set making your inbox the one stop place for your workflow. Inbox was a superior email app and google killed it and left us with their old, boring, less useful app.

app does not reflect changes made in desktop. I 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.

Great! But could use one additional feature. I love Gmail and use it for my main email (and love that it’s connected to my entire Drive and school/work materials), but I feel like the app fell behind the Apple mail app, solely because you don’t have the ability to select emails to mark as read, or easily select all to mark as read or move to a folder. It’s literally impossible unless you go to the individual emails and “read” them. It’s a feature that Gmail has online, but I feel like could easily be implemented on the app. K would love to see it and it would make Gmail an even better experience for me. Otherwise I may have to switch my email back to the other app since I get thousands of emails and when they’re junk I’d love to be able to mark them as read and not see the notification, or move them to junk easily.

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!

Bring back the cursor when doing replies. I used the GMail app all day long on my iOS devices. One thing that has bugged me for awhile has been the missing cursor when you do a reply. Typically in most email apps when you do a reply the cursor will be at the top and the on screen keyboard shows. Sometime ago GMail also behaved this way but they took it out. Now when you do a reply you have to tap where you want to type, which sometimes you just can’t tap in the exact place you want so it’s frustrating. A couple of days ago while visiting with my 80 years step father he said he can’t reply to anyone anymore in GMail and I immediately knew what his issue was and I was correct. He said Google was stupid for doing that, how’s anyone supposed to know to do that? Please Google, fix this for all the frustrated senior citizens that want to reply to their kids and grandchildren.

Google makes a disabled persons life easier, but they stealing all my life. Has anyone ever really looked at all the date of the mine I was just about to download the new Gmail app which I really love you know you can call Msgs back, but everything is linked to you. I understand a certain amount and but that’s just crazy and so many apps are out there like that and people don’t even know where they forgot to check Google may I suggest that you make a spot next to an app that can be downloaded where you can check that you don’t want to see it again or at least not for a couple years till the next upgrade or whatever because sometimes it takes a half an hour to read the privacy policy and go through and see exactly what they’re getting and how much and and they’re just selling our data. It’s crazy. 25 years ago in a PhD program we were developing ways to harvest the dad in clusters and now it’s just getting stolen from us.

Horrendous Spam Filter. If you’re looking for important emails in your Gmail, chances are they’re in your spam folder. I use my university’s email on Gmail, just like the rest of students in my university. Over 50 legitimate emails from my university’s professors, clubs, or career center have been put in spam folder. The problem with Gmail’s spam filter is that you cannot predict when a email address is going to be recognized as spam. For example, emails from my career center had never been recognized as spam until this August. Then I missed a tons of important messages because of that. Now all emails from 90% of the university clubs I subscribed have been in the spam folder. Yes, you can try whitelist email address, but it’s an endless task when every single legitimate email could be recognized as spam. The worst thing is that you cannot turn off gmail’s spam filter. Please Gmail team, improve your spam filter AI. It’s really horrendous.

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.

Cannot Select All. The inability to select all messages for deleting or moving in mass is absurdly frustrating, I cannot even navigate to Gmail in Safari, and request the desktop version to get the future as the request is apparently denied. I get tons of unwanted email all the time and my account fills up rather quickly so it’s very useful to be able to delete 100 emails at one time without having to select each one individually. I find it suspect that the ability to select all disappeared and now I am constantly being prompted to purchase more storage. I have no desire to store all these useless emails I don’t want or need, but perhaps many people find it more convenient to just pay the small fee every month versus arduously selecting thousands of emails individually to delete. This is a very simple thing, and it is very frustrating thing and I can’t help but feel that it is intentional, which pisses me off. Even being able to select 50 at a time would be a vast improvement.

Unfriendly app. No matter what I do the sign in screens are always in Chinese. This makes life difficult since I always have to verify my sign ins, and sometimes I have to figure out what the screens are saying. The security procedure requires gmail to verify your signing using gmail on your phone, which doesn’t seem safe to me, and there is no option for normal two factor identification with a text message or something like that. Doing useful sorting of your mail is difficult and some things that I take for granted on other mail clients, like just looking at unread mail, don’t seem to be available. Here is an update. As a result of this review I got an email from Apple suggesting I could use the help center or contact the developer. Neither of these options was useful. The help center doesn’t address my issue and trying to contact the developer only gave a place to put screenshots. You can’t actual type anything or describe your problem in any way. I would be willing to start a new discussion thread, but there is no way to do that either.

Integration added to availability & dependability. The Gmail product line was foreign to me, and switching our business email to the new system brought about apprehension and worry. I was quickly releived to find how easy the setup was to configure and the instant nature of the cutover made it very cost effective. It quickly became clear the system design was thorough and insightful. Now as our team continues to implement more complex systems and network wide applications and components to interact with additional platforms of all types, the gmail platform continues to provide the intended service of e-mail delivery with added functionality. It has become the focal point of communication on many levels with Microsoft, Apple and the other OPEN SYSTEMS of wildcat programmers and entrepreneurs in todays world-wide-web. Thank you for the product line and great support! Google!
