Great app 5/5

This is a great email access app
No "print" function on iPhone 1/5
By John HUSKEY
There is no "print" option in iPhone iOS 10.2.1. Disappointed by this Google oversight.
What happened to printing the emails? 3/5
The latest updates to the iPhone and iPad versions removed, or either significantly hid the ability to print emails.
Come on Google, really?!?!
Can't adjust the font size. 2/5
By A Jetson 33
The font size from the accessibility doesn't help either.
Not sure what is wrong with this app. I downloaded it and it won't do anything. Total waste of time
I Hate the Redesign with My Whole Heart 1/5
By Hell Mel
It's so poorly designed. I can't imagine any user research was done. Switching between profiles is painful (you have to stop at each profile in between if you're going from first to last). The swiping motions aren't intuitive. The overuse of color is an eye sore. I miss my tabs being easily accessible. Fix this please.
EVERY ONE USE THIS AND NOT ICLOUD LOL
Farewell Gmail! 1/5
By Molybdenum trioxide
Google removed a number of features, was ineffective in adding these back, and has made numerous poor design choices.
I stayed with the app for a few months to see if these mistakes would be corrected and they have not. So I've switched to a different email app that is far more comprehensive and advanced than Gmail ever was or will be. The difference between these is staggering.
It is strange how Google managed to completely destroy the value of Gmail. I will never return to using this now obsolete app.
No privacy 1/5
By V r o o
Terrible BUG it no longer blocks images even if that feature is turned on which allows advertisers to invade your privacy.
Redirect Loops 1/5
Redirect loops is an ongoing problem trying to login. Why can't this be fixed?
February 2017 1/5
I'm very frustrated with this app. I continually have an alert that I have new mail but nothing is there. I have to uninstall and reinstall. I'm thinking of switching to another email program.
Mostly good, but... 3/5
I'm making greater use of gmail and appreciated it and all that Alphabet does for us. The mail app is a tad confusing as I used other email too and the icons are not always clear in their function.
Nice to have 4/5
By Ehh, soso
Better than Apple mail that only checks every 5 minutes and doesn't notify immediately when new email arrives.
Gmail contacts 4/5
Love the gmail app but would really love to add contacts with the app. What is the point of the app if you have to use the iPhone contacts?
Great Email server 5/5
By Los Minas
REALLY LOVE IT!!!!!!!! 5/5
By piano guy
Really love it!!!!!!
Love it 5/5
Defendable,solid mail, use it every day, use it as my primary mail
Love it! 4/5
Have used gmail for many years so am very accustomed to it. The ability to automatically divide incoming emails allows me to prioritize them. I can focus on important items in a timely fashion, quickly delete unimportant emails I don't have time to bother with while items I want to look at when time is available reside in a separate file. I will appreciate improvements in the contacts section when Google gets to it. Final like is the ability to send large files to many addresses - handy for holiday greetings, organization minutes, etc.
I'm so mad that I can't revert back to the old version---it was harassing me to update but I wish I had just stuck it out. What an ugly "cutesie" interface and so clunky to use. Gonna go ahead and switch to a third party app, this is not worth the hassle
A mess, will now show full emails anymore 1/5
As of 19 Feb (version 5.0.10)-
Gmail app is STILL over THREE MONTHS broke, will not load full emails of large emails or work spreadsheets anymore. They forgot to add the view full message button.
The new interface is horrible to navigate & takes up too much space per email. Worst update I have seen. :(
They ruined it 1/5
It was so simple and seamless. Now, it's a big ol mess. Kicking myself for clicking "update." Avoid my mistake!
Make it simpler 3/5
The new interface is functional but just so busy. I understand that color may make some apps more enjoyable to use but in this case it makes everything less legible. Take another stab at it Google.
The best 5/5
By Beatrizzz cruzzz
I love this app♥️
Solid app, same as all Google apps 5/5
Been a fan of Google products, and especially Gmail, for a long time. This email client does exactly what I need, and otherwise stays out of the way. Easy setup, easy to understand, super snappy.
Perfect way to use email on mobile 5/5
I use this app to manage my two primary emails. Easy to read messages, reply, and switch between my accounts. Friendly UI and just simple to use whether I am going through my emails or just checking to see if I got a new one. I recommend!
Cannot Sign In 1/5
It says try again later. This has been happening for months! Very irritating.
Works for me just fine. 5/5
All of Google is free and I think people who rate low would have trouble with any mail service.
Total crap! Bring back the old gmail app. This new one is total junk. Plus it looks like it was designed by a 10 yr old. What's with the big ugly red line across the top?? Doesn't have a professional look or feel to it. Wish I could go back
Horrible redesign 1/5
I hate the new design. Blindingly white color hurts my eyes. Functions are harder to use and find, as they tend to be hidden. I really, really wish I could go back to the old version. Stupid me for updating.
If you still have the old version, PLEASE save yourself the frustration and do not update. Turn off auto-updating in the Appstore settings and keep your old Gmail app. For now, I am tempted to use the stock Mail app instead of this junk.
It seems that Google just keeps updating this app with small patches in order to hide the negative reviews. They aren't actually fixing any of its many, many problems. Still terrible as of latest update. One of the biggest annoyances is how complicated it is to change labels or even forward.
Terrible user interface. Same as Inbox app 1/5
Why do developers need to completely change a user interface occasionally just to do something new? The update makes the Gmail app the same crappy user interface as the Inbox app. What's the point of making two apps the same? Luckily I kept the old app file and was able to downgrade to the better old version.
I am new to gmail and still learning how to move around. One difficulty I am having is saving specific emails to a designated folder. Having used Zimbra for years my adjustment is smoother than I had anticipated.
By Mahamudul Ronie
I found it very easy to use and really thankful.
Recanted fixes ruined a great simple app 3/5
Sometimes you don't want more bells and whistles, you want an app that just works. I'm really disappointed by the recent updates. At times I need to print something from email. I can no longer do that from my phone or iPad. I have to boot up the pc to print. How is this an improvement? I like gmail for its spam filters, but I may just start using the web version from my iPad instead of the app.
Good BUT 2/5
Everything since to be working great but there is a huge problem with receiving notifications. I have an iPhone and I usually always receive my Gmail notifications. Now, though, for past few weeks I do not receive any sort of notification from my Gmail accounts. I tried turning off the notification on both my phone and Gmail app. It still didn't work. I also tried deleting the app and then downloading it again. Still nothing. Can someone please help me with this issue please?! It is really frustrating because when I'm waiting for an email from my job I don't know if I have received or not!
Does anybody know HOW to fix this problem?!
Total must have 5/5
By No one3473763
At first, you don't need it, but eventually, you gotta have it! Definitely recommend!
Best email 5/5
Key features now gone 1/5
I can no longer find an option to download attachments to Pages. It seems Gmail would rather I open documents in Google Drive. Once again I am lamenting installing an update.
OK but needs...... 1/5
I use the app on iPad and iPhone because I use it on my computer but seriously....why can't I address an email to a group of people like "Library Board of Directors " on the mobile devices? I'll give two more stars when I can do that.
Update: I took stars away . HOW DO I SELECT MULTIPLE EMAILS AND RITHER DELETE THEM OR SEND THEM TO THEIR DESIGNATED FOLDER. PLEASE HELP!
Also...I DIDNT UPDATE....IT HAPPENED AUTOMATICALLY!!!
UPDATE: 2/18/17 I've stopped using this app entirely and do my gmail on safari on my iPad. At least that way I can select multiple emails and label and file them in respective folders . The app STINKS!!!
Great app 5/5
Helpful...Almost awesome 4/5
Please clarify the writing space when replying to an email. Apple does a better job with this...everything else so far is great
What happened to Gmail App? 2/5
It's been screwed up since version 5.
1) It defaults to the "Unread" view. If I'm in "Everything" and follow a link, I want to go back to "Everything", but it defaults to "Unread and loses my spot, even though I can still see what's unread in "Everything".
The banner comes up for a new email, touch it to go to it, it opens the email and in a flash closes and, yep, goes to unread. Then open "Everything" so you can read the email that Gmail just closed for you.
"Search" has been rendered totally useless, as what is entered in the "Search" box has no connection to what comes up when you search. Most of the time I can't even find the same word(s) in the email it finds, even when I use the word from an email.
I've been keeping my Gmail separate from my Mail, but it looks like I'll have to go to using Mail for my gmail. The Gmail app is totally jacked up. Go back to version 4 Gmail and an old look that actually worked.
Ms Barber 5/5
Loving it so far.
Ms Rate 5/5

Love this app
Forced Conversation View? 1/5
Forcing conversation view seems like an incomplete app to me. Some people may like it, for some it just doesn't work. I happen to have emails with the same subject line but different conversations and now there all grouped together. I cannot find how to stop this!
Ultimately I'm removing the app and using the native iOS one.
Really... I can't mark one email in a thread 1/5
This ap is terrible. Since when is it functional or convenient for someone to not be able to mark one email in a thread as unread or star just that one email. Google & Apple dumb move on your part.
Bad update to a previously great app 3/5
The color scheme is garish. I was hoping for a simple dark mode (like Gboard).
Items now deselect after one operation - the ability to label, mark read, and archive several items without reselection was my favorite feature.
There's no reason to use this over Apple Mail anymore, for my usage.
Update: Though a few features have been added back, my concerns above stand.
Update 2: Up to three stars now! The ability to perform multiple operations without losing selection is back, which is quite welcome. The color theme remains garish red though, without the ability to go dark or at least pick something else. I still mostly avoid the app after the redesign, but it's more usable than before.
Gmail is great. 5/5
The only problem being how long it takes to start the app.
