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.
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
Please do something about the threaded view. The option does not work. After 30 to 40 mails it becomes very annoying to find emails. UPDATE : the dreaded not syncing problem. Apparently I need to do a factory reset!!! You gotta be kidding me!!!
This app is so boring and lacks feature. Please change the UI and UX of this app, Google. You listen to me Google. Please change the design of Gmail.
