Simple, I like it that way
For those who want a simple approach to the online world, this is the app for you. As I’ve heard others say, this very product designed by google has simply become the standard in the way email websites are presented today. There’s no doubt about it. The interface, I would say, is user friendly. The app itself is fast and from my time using it, I have experienced no bugs (that’s not to say they don’t exist, however.)
There’s one minor inconvenience and I’m not even sure if this is a google classroom issue or a gmail issue. I use this service for schooling, and I rely on it much more these days because of the current state of the world, and consequently I have to do online schooling. Gmail and classroom don’t work together. I’ll receive an email hours after the assignment itself has been posted, so at times I’m not in the loop as to what I need to have turned in. When I do receive an email for classroom, I’ll tap the “open” button and it doesn’t take me directly to the assignment/announcement. All it does is open the app so now I have to dig through classroom to find it.
Regardless, this app is great and if you want a simple approach to email, this app is the way to go.
Why the change?
I’m not loving or even liking a recent change they made. When I click a link in an email and it opens in Chrome or twitter or insta or wherever, and then I click the little arrow at the top left of the screen that says “return to Gmail” it previously would take me back to the email I had open, unless a long period of time had passed and then it might not do that. However, now it does one of two things, neither of which I like. It either goes back to the email but it is a blank screen and I have to click a left arrow button to get back to the email being open so I can read it, and figure out where I left off in the email. Other times, it goes back to Gmail as if I just opened it up after a long time and it checks for new mail. Then if I want to continue reading the email with aggregated news articles to to see what was next up, I have to remember which email it was and go hunt it down. Please, please, please...go back to the functionality around this you previously had where it would go back to the email you had/have open before you clicked a link, with the email still open and ready to continue reading (from the same spot) before I clicked away.
My issue with writing gmails
Hi my name is Holger. I’m 15 years old and Ive been using gmail for long time especially for school. During these hard times of pandemic my school is depending more than ever gmail. I have never had this issue. When I’m writing a gmail to someone and I’m typing it with the smart folio keyboard that is for the iPad Air 3 it keeps going back to the work that I wrote for example if I write Hi how are you it will go back to the o of you and of course me typing really fast makes a lot of errors and is frustrating because every second of my time is worthy so I don’t have the time neither should I have the patience to be fixing it and go back where I was supposed to be. Now I checked if this was a software issue. I even reset my iPad. I checked if it was a hardware issue. Without the smart folio keyboard from Apple it works fine. In other programs like google docs, safari, iMessage, Instagram, etc the smart folio keyboard works perfectly fine so I checked gmail to see if I have a shortcut or something now because its the new feature of a lot of programs and devices. In gmail I made sure it wasn’t because I have something turned on to do that. So from my part or Apple its not a issue of ours. It’s gmail that is glitching or I don’t know. It’s really getting annoying and I hope you guys solve this issue as soon as possible. Thank you and have a nice day
