Love the app but 5/5
Needs the option for adding custom filters for messages within the app. Having to go to the desktop site just to do that is cumbersome. Also there's been recent changes in what you're allowed to have as filters in messages one of those being "mark as read" quietly disappeared. that's disappointing. There's some mail i don't need a push notification for. Lastly with the most recent app update another thing that quietly disappeared was the ability to "mark as read" as soon as the push notification came in. you can just close the notification or send it to archive. bring this feature back
please i was enjoying it
Last two patches is lost of inconvenience 3/5
With prior patches, and current patch, this app would hide the side menu (Primary, Social, Promotion) on opening unless I rotate my iPad Pro portrait, back to landscape mode. I use this app daily, and check it many times a day, but two patches ago I have to deal with this common occurrence problem. Google please fix this minor but irritating bug. WillRemain 3 stars until bug is squashed.
App needs some work 1/5
By Leon dunn
Where are my old emails I can’t find them and the search option is horrible
Worst email indexing and search functionally possible 1/5
By Kenny Price
The search capabilities of the gmail app are downright embarrassing. Google literally became such a huge website because of its search engine and the algorithms it used. They clearly didn’t use any of that same knowledge when designing the gmail app. It will literally not find emails from hours prior when you search for them.
This app also routinely just loses emails. Even if you know the specific date and time you sent or received an email it will not be there when you go looking for it. I switched to the gmail app from Outlook because I figured surely the actual provider would have a better app. Absolutely wrong!
Do yourself a favor and get Outlook or another app. Unless you never need to access an old email this app will just irritate you and leave you disappointed.
What’s going on? 3/5
By Emmy Mace
For a month now I have not been receiving emails. I have been placing orders for different places and I won’t receive confirmation emails. I’ve contacted them to reassure they sent it and they have. What is wrong with gmail??
Keeps crashing 1/5
This app is poorly written. I keep getting a pop up with exclamation mark and an error message.
Ads in my inbox? 1/5
Not sure if it was meant to be since the new update. But I no longer get notifications on my phone when new emails come in. Not sure if the app is glitch but needs to be fixed ASAP. I have checked all the settings and nothing works.
By Clippy Cloppy
Where are the contacts?
There should be a tab for that, where one can simply view and edit their contacts.
Gmail stopped working 4/5
Hey I can’t access my email it won’t update past aug 3 or 4th and doesn’t need or have an update
Must Read! 1/5
Replying to the unwanted email you sent me regarding what features could be improved. Searching reviews and then emailing a person to ask them to change a review is not only creepy, but also an invasion of privacy in my eyes. My response: 1- Could you PLEASE make a new feature with the ability to delete bulk emails easier? An example: To be able to simply slide my finger down the left side while scrolling up or down to check off all those bulk emails from certain companies etc.,so I can then delete them all at once, instead of one by one? It takes forever to delete hundreds upon hundreds of individual emails, is annoying and I have early onset osteoarthritis. This would be great to do for all my Gmail accounts at once also. Your feature where you can bulk delete all emails from a certain year isn't working. It only deletes a certain number and I have to go back to delete the rest. It's very time consuming and again, annoying. 2- Give us the ability to "block" senders like we do for text messages, that we've continually reported for spam and have unsubscribed from many times, only to have them continually return to annoy us. The "report spam and unsubscribe" feature obviously isn't working. 3-Give us the ability to speak text in email for handicapped people or those with hand disorders and problems like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Make more handicap accessible features. 4-Give us the ability to set security options for ALL accounts at once, instead of going through the settings for each separate email account. It's so very frustrating with what seems like a million steps and pages to go through. No thank you. *I'm not using Gmail anymore if things don't improve. Other companies have some of these options already. I will copy/paste this in the email you sent me. Final point: Your email links don't default to my chosen browser! That's a security risk. Stop it! I no longer use Google search either and am now using DuckDuckGo instead, which has over 1 million excellent reviews, WAY more than Google & you can fireproof any site. It also shows you what trackers follow you and Google is one of the top 2 notorious offenders on every site I visit along with Facebook. Frightening! Glad I "Quack It" now instead of googling and yep, I no longer get tailor made ad pop ups at all, yay! Google is scary and a major security risk! It also hears what you say and then shows you ads about what you just said! How! Are you listening to our voices now?? Bye G!
Someone hacked into my Gmail this morning while I was sleep, pretending to be me . My email count went from over 3,000 to only 94 now
iPhone 13 pro scroll in email body is not smooth 2/5
Support for 120hz screen refresh rate needs to be added.
Can’t set chrome as the default browser. 2/5
I have both gmail and chrome installed in my phone. For some mind boggling reason they don’t give you the option to set chrome as the default browser (only safari and google)
Gmail aka gangsta mail 5/5
The best email app google is the best app for mail
By poor customer servive
I love Gmail. It’s better than any other email server. What is scary is that they type preset replies for you that are so appropriate. Those algorithms are frightening. Also, I wish that you could go to a certain date and click delete prior, and all prior emails from that date earlier would be deleted.
Lastly, I wish that adding email accounts wasn’t so difficult
Worst Email Ever Made 1/5
By y d g kuhxh linl iu
Why are you showing me mail from "April" when I threw ALL OF MY MAIL IN THE TRASH YESTERDAY! Worst App EVER MADE. WTG GOOGLE "GENIOUS's". 😒
Google is the best!
Ok I guess but not meant for iPad 4/5
Ok so everything is fine on computer and I can’t find anything wrong with it (for now) but on iPad whenever I try to reply it copies all the previous replies and makes my reply really really long. It doesn’t do this on computer so idk what is the problem. Also, on iPad a lot of features on computer like background changing are not available (or I just can’t find it) on iPad. I’d say overall this app is pretty good since it is available on iPad as well but I think the app developers need to update the mobile version a little bit. But like I said it is a great app, and a nice, quick, easy way to send messages and things like that.
Great App, Wont show emails 2/5
By Tala Alomary
I press on my notification for an email, and it disappears????
App keeps crashing since recent Apple updates 1/5
By Maria in Alabama
I can’t even finish writing an email before the app crashes. Same thing happening with my Google Calendar and Google apps. Have uninstalled then reinstalled all three apps and this has NOT helped.
Dirty Google 1/5
Google is being dirty, first of all I cant even log out of any accounts and they have Ads Tracking automatically on. I have a ton of email accounts I can’t sign out from because they make it so difficult!
The scrolling in emails are not smooth and stutters. Please fix.
Gmail has very good security I really like the 2-step verification since it asks for my permission before someone can access Gmail and that gives me a lot of confidence since I know that my information is safe.
Notification muted 3/5
The latest version kills notification .
Horrible new look 1/5
By Anh reader
The new look hurts my eyes. Please change it back.
Horrible performance 2/5
Choppy scrolling on an iPhone 13 pro. Google, what are all your employees doing every day?
I hate delete email 4/5
I hate delete email becuase is too much to delete !
Tengo más de un mes que no me llegan mis correos electrónicos, por favor ayúdenme cómo puedo hacer para poder seguir recibiendo mis correos electrónicos
Could be Great… 4/5
By Greg Geller
I wish the search function would actually search ALL emails. It doesn’t search Trash, which is so irritating. Even when I click ‘All Emails’. Other than that I’ve gotten used to it’s other quirks. That search function is not user friendly.
Search Feature Worse 1/5
Does not allow you to search through emails using key words like it use to. A ton of emails pop up with similar key words now which does not help in narrowing down your search.
Can’t even install iCloud email 1/5
I have used a number of email clients over the years. I’ve even had the Gmail app on my devices a time or two. I’ve been using Spark for a long time and really love it but I wanted to give Gmail another try.
Immediately after downloading I opened it and, as you’d expect, my Google accounts showed up right away. I clicked Add another account in order to connect my iCloud email. I put in my email and clicked next. This is where Gmail and Spark begin to separate. Spark has a very beautiful process for adding additional accounts. Gmail actually shows me the IMAP settings. Lame! Spark also tells you that you need an app-specific password to connect iCloud accounts and even gives you a link to the Apple account site. Not Gmail. There is no kind of communication about any of this.
Anyway, I put in my app-specific password and clicked next. After a few seconds of validating I received an error message with no further instructions. Spark, Outlook, Email and other clients all connect to iCloud flawlessly.
I love it
Too bad Google hasn’t been able to fix the laggy scrolling.
Pro motion issue when scrolling thru the email content 3/5
By Red sox756
While inside an email scrolling is very choppy ==============Explanation: Within gmail
app when i open an email which is long and if i
scroll through it it feels like its scrolling at
20-3Ofps even if its an emailwith only plain text
inside. Even worse if there are images.
Update : As per developer suggestion in other users pays I uninstalled and installed the app but the issue still persists.
No Bulk Delete in App is Ridiculous 1/5
Seriously Google you’re better than this. You’re killing me Smalls…
Sorting Features 2/5
By Bharatt R Duaa
I’m not much impressed with the fact that the app doesn’t have features to sort by sender like in outlook, the challenge is when you want to see what of 1000 unread make sense without using Gmail default group labels(social/promotion/update), the app really doesn’t meet to the standard, not expected this from Gmail Product Team, UX definitely needs assessment for a smooth experience.
Don’t change a perfectly working feature 2/5
I used to be able to jump to my other email addresses by swiping down on the profile photo icon. Now, it’s changed so that swiping down takes me to the last email address and swiping up takes me to my next email address. It used to be swipe down = next, swipe up = go back. Why change it?
Still working great, feature requests please! 5/5
Gmail for iOS is quite stable and I'm very happy there are options to remove the stuff you don't need (like Meet and Chat).
I would like to have some more info and controls when searching though. For example, please show the number of results matching the search term. Also, would LOVE to have the ability to select all messages with one tap rather than have to tap the icon on every individual message.
LET ME SELECT ALL 1/5
By Oz Lanyon
I don’t have WiFi. Thus, I don’t have a computer. One would think that the select all option would be usable. After all, it’s right there in the inbox when you look at it. The SECOND you try to filter anything tho? Nothing. Fix it.
New version 1/5
Ever since the newest Version up loaded to my phone I don’t receive any more emails it’s quite annoying and I don’t on now what to do to fix it
This is a good app but one thing can you get an “delete all” button thats all😌
Horrendous Spam Filter 2/5
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.
From great to scrambled 2/5
All was good until the recent update…I have 3 emails linked into the gmail app and every time I open the app it merges all my emails together. Not allowing me to see separate accounts. I’ve uninstalled and re installed a with no luck! Very disappointing.
Email is glitched can’t get into my late account 1/5
Needs bugs fix option
Great if not for the constant product pushing 3/5
By Sam Aparicio
The Gmail mobile app in itself is fantastic. But the experience is constantly ruined by the PMs that push chat , Google Meet and other products onto the interface. Gmail is for email. Leave me be.
Google refuses to follow my app setrtings 1/5
Eventhough Gmail allows you to set a non google map app as your defualt it will not open address’ in a non google app. If I cant trust a comapny to follow a setting a simple as that I cant trust the company to follow important settings like security & privacy. I will no longer use google apps until the company actaully follows user settings.
