Review from Batul Jawadwala
Great app for email use
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! ).
Solid, but a handful of very annoying bugs make using this mildly annoying. Fails to sync deletes and moving messages often. Can't open certain calendar invites from Outlook desktop clients. Once Outlook Android app adds remote image blocking I'll switch.
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.
I would give it a higher rating but I'm consistently running into the same issue where emails that I delete pop up again in my Gmail and I have to re-delete them again. This is an issue I've encountered on all three of my Android devices including my Pixel XL phone.
I'm really tired of not being able to view my new messages with this app. When I look up the bug, it appears to have been around for a couple years now, which is ridiculous. Please FINALLY fix your bugs... a month later and STILL HAVING THIS ISSUE
