Review from A Google User
Good. Love this app especially the peak times. Keeps me away from work when I should be. Scrollable email widget would give 5 stars. Whats the point in having a widget if I have to click to see my emails? Might as well just be an icon.
Update is form over function It looks prettier and in general email is good. But triage of emails is important for a smart phone so it is a step backward that to red-flag an email now takes three clicks where it used to take one. This is why I stopped using TouchDown on ipad. Please can we have a dedicated flag button on each email instead of a pull down menu. The Calendar and task components are also far short of the competition and should be upgraded.
I have used Touchdown for years now and love it. However, I was on build 9.0.00407 and it worked awesome but a couple of days ago I got build 9.0.00412 (auto download and install)! However, 412 no longer gives me calendar notifications / reminders. Every other notification works great, email, etc... just not calendar reminders. It syncs perfectly with outlook for my company I can see the appointment just no visual or audible sound (even though it pops up on my work computer) when time comes. Also, I can create an appointment on the Touchdown app and it doesn't even give me a reminder notification! I even uninstalled 412 this morning and reinstalled it from Google Play and it still doesn't give me reminders. I think there is an issue with calendar reminders in build 412.
Used to be great It was an excellent app with great widgets that I've been using for 6+ years. However the newest update moved many of the commonly used buttons around making it difficult to use one handed. It also requires more presses to accomplish the same task that I used to be able to do with one touch.
Used to be better I've used TouchDown for years quite happily, but it's not what it used to be. The interface has been completely redone in a less useful and more "modern" style. I guess Symantec has decided form is more important than function. A real shame.
Updated version is nice! ***UPDATE 8/23/16*** They have finally updated this app to have a dedicated menu button in the UI. Thank you! Too bad it took almost 2 years. The widgets are great and the app functions as it should have. ***previous review*** Really!? No menu button? You have to know that most android phones have done away with the dedicated menu button and all other developers have updated to have that integrated into their apps. This is a corporate email app, it should be updated by now. This is disappointing.
New update causes blank screen and freeze up Worked much better with prior version. New version tends to hang up when accessing the app to a blank screen and then freezes up the entire system. This has happened several times in the past week. Fix needed. I do like the new easier layout though.
