Gmail is a good email app that works well as a unified inbox for multiple email accounts across multiple platforms. To make it a great email app it needs a few more feature and options. Like being able to default to the unified or all inbox view. More swipe controls. Maybe a snooze function (I've tried inbox and like it but it doesn't support Hotmail, only Gmail, I have both). Sometimes when you move an email to a different label it doesn't remove the inbox tag. That's a little annoying and needs fixing. These addressed it would be an amazing email app rather than just good.
I used to love this app over other email clients of phone manufacturers. However, my biggest issue lately with the app has been with the lack of notifications on my Samsung Galaxy s8. I've checked all of Gmail settings for notification and they are fine. But I'm unable to add gmail to the unmonitored apps list in Galaxy S8's power save mode. I don't find gmail on the list at all and reinstalling gmail didn't help either. Now, I only get email notifications when I manually open the app and refresh each mail folder :(
Ever since the last couple of updates, the app has been freezing up when opening to a site. Acting like it's uncompatable with Chrome...? Also have been getting more and more spam in my inbox. It's been a bit lacking in other areas that other apps have had for years. Hopefully these will be corrected quickly and efficiently. Pretty disappointed at this point.
WE STILL CAN'T TURN OFF CONVERSATION VIEW FOR GMAIL ACCOUNTS... Grrr. I re-test with each update, but won't use until this is changed. I really dislike conversation view... It gets in my way.
This app is overall great! But it has a few bugs it needs improvement on. The main issue for me, is me deleting new unread emails in my inbox, and then a few seconds or minutes later they reappear in my inbox again as new unread mail. This happens every day, several times a day for me. Quite annoying. Please try to resolve this issue.
Still missing label options for group emails. Unusable for work without it. Why create labels if you're not going to allow them within the app? Very frustrating to not be able to use an otherwise amazing app. Please add group emailing so I can use this app again.
