Review from Nick Reeve
It's handy and convenient for reading my Gmail. I wish it had full functionality, though. Why, oh why, is there no way to mark a message unread?
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.
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.
Re-reviewing for a newer device... still the most frustrating, least functional email app I've used. Impossible to use select buttons without accidentally opening every other message. It takes 40 clicks to delete 10 spam emails. Talk about inefficient. I thought technology was supposed to increase quality of life by decreasing wasted time. Not with this app. I'm looking for somebody new, don't try to change my mind about it. Peazy.
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.
I was really looking forward to using this app with my new Pixel 2 XL. Unfortunately it does not sync IMAP folders. I had been using the Outlook mail app with my Pixel XL which worked very well. Unfortunately I have had to go back to Outlook. I hope GMAIL fixes this issue. For 3 days I have been running simultaneously Gmail and Outlook with all of the same settings and Gmail does not sync read mail or mail which has been moved to a folder. GMAIL PLEASE fix this issue!!!!
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.
