Thanks for doing it so well
It really respects the Gmail interface so you won’t feel like you’re using a wonky 3rd party app—kudos. A really spot-on solution if you were looking for a Google-made desktop version. It also works superbly with customized G Suite Gmail, as it shows my logo and can respond from alias addresses just as on Gmail.
All it needs now is the same solution for the rest of G Suite, but there is a familiar link to all the online apps right where you’d expect.
I find this App very useful! Only wish the settings had more options!
I personally find having 'Mail for Gmail' very convenient and useful , especially since I can have it open at all times while I'm on the computer working, and during the times I am on the Internet I don't have to stop, open a new tab, and login threw the website. However, I do wish it had all the same "settings" you can access through the website Gmail. It would make it the ultimate program if it did have those options. Especially since when I am having issues with my Gmail account, the 'Mail for Gmail' works fine and the web version can have problems logging in but not here. I can still access my emails in this program without problems. Therefore, if the settings were available here to help troubleshoot problems with passwords or others related, being able to just go to my full set of settings would make this ideal!! Otherwise, it's my app I use daily as I have multiple accounts for very important and separate business or personal uses. "Knock on Wood," I have yet to have ANY issues with it and I've been using it daily for about 8 months!! Therefore, I do highly suggest this app, just know it does have certain limitations, as I mentioned limited settings options, you will still have to go to your actual Gmail account online for those, but that is understandable, as this is not your actual Gmail, it's a companion program to help with reasons I listed above for why it is so convenient.
Best of the free gmail options IMO
I dont like the ad nags, but there are really only a few of them and they are very rare. That being said maybe give us a paid version. The app works perfetly, and provides a super clean interface for me now that Inbox as been killed. We know all these gmail apps are basically a webpage wrapped up in an app window package, which is fine- but to me the best of these apps are the ones that add the LEAST to gmail. This one is super simple. Some of them you cant remove from the menu bar but this one you can and i love that... i like a clean menu bar. This one has a compact mode that is also nice and looks as if it was based on an iOS design which works great. One other thing to note is the responsiveness of this one compared to others... its super fast. If you close the window on the others it take a full second lag to open another window. I hate that, on a new mac when its running it should be instant and this one is. Prolly cuz this one does not have added toolbars and such in the app itself. Just give me a paid, no ad option and id say 5 stars!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
