The colors of this app look like an android theme.
I’ve been trying to change the layout to the classic black and white theme you can use on the web browser. No such luck.
The app loads faster than built in iPhone mail app. But can’t get over the skittles theme color.
Inbox was way better 2/5
Inbox didn’t display ads
Inbox bundles including Trips just worked.
Forgot basic functionality! 2/5
Really no mark all as read option?
That's just sloppy oversight.
“But, but, there is a reason.”
No one cares about your reason, PUT IT IN!
Too much info 3/5
As a writer, I have different accounts. I personal, and others to interface with my editor & co-writers. Now, with my accounts combined, everyone can read my personal emails.
Don’t bother with this app 1/5
First the ability to report spam went away. Then I wasn’t getting any mail it just kept saying I was up to date. I can’t get mail on the regular google app anymore so I signed in to the desktop using safari. I had a bunch of unread mail!
So I deleted the app and re-downloaded it and when it came to sign in it won’t bring up a keyboard for me to actually sign in!
What a bunch of crap! Does no one actually work at google?
Cannot slide emails to delete 2/5
I don’t know what google was thinking but the last update that went through my phone in June 2019 made it super hard to right or left slide emails to delete. Now you have to hold one email down for a few seconds than click on each email to select it than delete.
Terrible update, please go back or I’ll make Yahoo my primary email.
Crashing when uploading from drive 1/5
I’m on an IPad 10 and Gmail app keeps crashing every single time I try to upload an attachment from Google Drive to an email. Please fix!
By Mason Ohlgren
It’s not letting me in to the app it’s not updating and ya so I need that fixed today
It’s good so I can get my emails
Stop trying to disguise ads as emails. It started with one, now there are two at the top of each page. Even when you know it's an ad, it's still easy to mistakenly hit the wrong icon.
Great App 5/5
This app is my main email, so I use it a lot. It’s slow when sending, but receives quickly even over long distances (like the Atlantic Ocean). Of all email apps, these are my ratings:
1. Yahoo(for everything)
2. Apple Mail (works for everything especially when u need organizing)
3. Gmail(best as a home email)
4. Outlook(best as a work email)
Latest update ruined reading email 1/5
I’m no longer able to read email messages on my phone. No text shows up. If I hit reply then I see the full message text. But otherwise I can’t read incoming messages in the gmail app. This is highly inconvenient.
“Mark all as read” requires a computer 2/5
Can’t do this from the App? That’s ridiculous
iCloud Drive 2/5
It is not possible to access the files in my iCloud drive and attach them in an email thats so frustrating.
What’s Up With the New Update 2/5
I updated the gmail app and suddenly I can’t access my ‘Updates’ categories folder. It doesn’t seem to be appearing and it makes my emails look very unorganized and I can’t find any of my new ‘updated’ emails.
HATE IT 1/5
I keep separate accounts for different purposes. Having all these things dumped into one spot is NOT better, not functional, and not wanted.
Add Google Trips Bundles 4/5
Why don’t you add the trip bundles to Gmail?! It’s so helpful to have trips organized like that... the search doesn’t work well enough to filter out promo flight emails from my flight confirmation ones. Please add trip bundles to Gmail since you’re not supporting that app anymore.
Inbox was better 2/5
I liked Inbox much better. My main gripe with this app is that it doesn’t even function as a decent email application. Emails disappear when scrolling because of buggy ad system.
I hate that this app CONSTANTLY asks me if I want to open links in Google Chrome instead of Safari. NO, Google. I’ve said, “no” one million times before, I’ve checked “don’t ask again,” yet one hour later the app asks again. Finally done with it and am using the regular apple Mail app again.
Missing Inbox 2/5
I loved using the Inbox app. It kept my email inbox so organized. Now that I’m forced to use Gmail my inbox is a mess. I guess I wouldn’t have known what I was missing had they never had Inbox app. I no longer have the ability to delete in bulk and it’s not as good at recognizing promos and such. I just don’t even check my personal email anymore. It’s like avoiding a messy room in the house.
No instructions 3/5
The app doesn’t really show you how to do things. I’m a student and I work so I have multiple emails. I had three, and I wanted to remove an old one, but the app shows NO way to do this. At all. It’s really frustrating that I can’t do something this simple.
Extra add-on??? 3/5
How about an option or setting that would be able to delete messages in bulk or all of them at the same time? How about an option or setting that would is to set a time limit to when messages are automatically deleted,.... for instance, after 1 month the messages delete or whatever setting we have too it. If any of that makes sense or it’s already available, please contact me.
Basic CRITICAL security feature missing 1/5
Gmail allows disabling of remote image download on its Android and browser based Gmail, but not on iOS.
There are reasons for not wanting to download remote images embedded in even legitimate emails, such as evites, LinkedIn, or other emails that use embedded images for 'read' acknowledgement. Also, nothing is 100%, I will not rely on Google or any other company to completely protect my email security.
Invisible message text 2/5
All of a sudden, I can no longer see the text of messages in the Gmail app on my phone. I have to open the default mail app and/or go to Chrome and open up Gmail there to see message text. Not sure what’s going on here,but the Help forums aren’t that helpful.
Email accounts overlapping??? 3/5
By Performing arts teacher
I have 2 gmail accounts, one business and one personal, when I view either account through the app my messages are mixed up between my accounts. I am see my personal messages mixed in with my business account and my business messages mixed in with my personal account. It’s very confusing, please fix!!
Keep Up the Great Work 5/5
This app is easy to use and provides the options I need the most. I especially like how easy it is to switch from all inboxes for all accounts (work, personal, and family members') to individual inboxes for each account. Your swipe to delete or move setting is perfect for me. The iPhone mail app attempts to do that, but too often mixes up accounts when you move emails. Your's simplifies the process without errors. The Gmalify option has been useful as well, allowing me to connect a rarely used personal Yahoo email account to my main personal Gmail account. I read somewhere that you will be providing even greater options sometime in July. I'm looking forward to that, and hope it includes a readable dark mode. Thanks!
Doesn’t play well with Apple 。 1/5
Can not attach a pdf from Apple Files 。
Managing my emails is a mess! 1/5
By Nate in MI
Really annoying to not be able to delete multiple emails is sub folders! Now I have hundreds of unread emails unless I log in from a computer. Please bring back inbox. It was so much better.
I’m on a phone nots multi screen computer worthless 2 step verification may as well delete the app
Unreliable Connectivity with Drive 2/5
By Still Wild Stallion
Previous versions would show your files on Drive and make attaching very easy. Now, Gmail app shows “No files,” making you use the Drive app to copy/paste links. Waste of time, Google. Waste of time.
In my opinion Gmail is loads better than yahoo and others
ICS file support? 4/5
Gmail works well. Does what I need it to do for the most part, except for integrating ICS files with the native calendar app on iOS. Please add support for this.
Mark Aaron wortham my privacy was violated by you guys 1/5
IOS for gmail 2019 owner mark a wortham
Gmail works for most of my simple needs, but dang, the whole trying to scroll and highlight something to cut and paste is a pain in the butt. I don’t know if this is an Apple iOS issue or gmail, but I figured this was the place to share it.
Still doesn’t support proper multitasking 1/5
Somehow STILL doesn’t support split views. Overall, the new design feels like one step forward, one step backward, and several steps missed.
WTH Happened? 1/5
By Seaside Sinderella
My 3 email addresses are all lumped together. I use one for a home based biz, one for grand baby gifts and sale items and the 3rd is for me.
Now their all lumped together and I have no way to keep tell them apart unless I click the drop down arrow on each individual email.
How do I make this downgrade stop???
Don’t Bother 1/5
The app literally doesn’t even work. It just says “error”
Log out 1/5
Bagaimana cara log put akun gmain yg baru ini
Make text suggestions go away 2/5
Do away with the text suggestions while typing an email or at least make them optional. There are few things more annoying than an app trying to guess what I want to say. I can speak for myself thank you very much.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
I try to email people and before it worked then suddenly it keeps saying that “Email sent failed” it annoys the crap outta me!! Fix your crap Gmail!!
Text barely readable 3/5
Font family of choose is terrible. Not suitable for reading. No customization over font family, weight, or size.
Thank you for finally getting rid of conversation mode 5/5
You should fire the person who said that was a must have feature and promote the person who advocated for the option to turn off.
EASY TO USE 5/5
Keep up the great work this app is really easy to use
I can see my emails which are not sent to that email 4/5
By B.A Kirk
I can an Email for my other accounts on an account which isn’t sent to.
Can’t attach files from my folders 2/5
By AJ from SJ
I don’t know if this is because of a recent update but I am unable to attach any of my PDFs and other files directly from my phones folders. I can only send them via google drive link.
Plus I hate the sponsored ad I get from this. Which is why I use a third part email client now for my personal gmail. For work I think gmail is okay.
Big fan of gmail!
Combined inbox 2/5
I used to love the gmail app but I use it for multiple gmail accounts and it is no longer possible to view separate inboxes for separate accounts and this makes it very unpleasant to use
