Great way to email once you learn how to use it. After using Hotmail for years, Gmail seemed so different that I wasn't willing to learn how to use it. Once I started though, I quickly decided to make Gmail my main email. The only thing I miss from Hotmail is the amount of unread Gmails displayed on icon. Sometimes I forget to go back and look for new gmail that I moved off cell phone drop down menu. Gmail seems to be one of the few communication apps that doesn't display the number of pending messages on icon like Hotmail, Facebook, Messenger, and Text to name a few. I do recommend Gmail and encourage everyone to give it a try.
12/2017: widget options are awful, ugly. Not even option to change color. 4/2017: Really wish it had the functionality of desktop. Wish I could CLICK on a label to see all mail w/ label (presently, clicking opens up Label Selections menu, not what I want! ).
This app seriously lacks features that could be so useful. Like a sweep option to delete emails from the same sender or a select all option because I can't go through a whole folder of 500 emails to delete them. Seriously do a revamp on the UI and it's features and maybe I'll give an additional star.
The file attachment sucks. I can only select the photos/documents from a few folders from my phone. That really cause much inconvenience when I try to attach some files in other folders. For example, some editor app saves the documents in their own File path. Those doc can never be found in the Gmail app. File attachment is the most fundamental feature of email and yet it sucks. This app really disappoint me so much.
Ok so please please add a feature to where you can just "select all" to delete mail because I just spent 10 minutes clicking on 800 different emails to delete them and then the app glitched and deselected all of them. Other than that the app is great but I beg you to add that feature.
Like many others I have a synching problem with my mail as well. I sometimes won't receive a notification for an email until almost 12 hours later. As soon as I find an alternative that supports my Gmail account I'm switching
