Notif bubble broken
Really good apart from the fact that the notifications bubble won’t reset and disappear after you’ve opened a new email. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled, it’ll be fine til I get a new email and then the bubble will never go away, always saying I have a new email when I don’t. I’ve done everything from completely changing the notifications in the app to primary only and disabling notifications all together hoping that when I turn them back on it’ll have been enough to reset it, it didn’t work. Nor did restarting my phone. I know it’s just a little thing but it’s made me miss emails because I’ve assumed it was the bug when it wasn’t and it continuously tricks me into thinking I have a new email that I don’t.
Please please fix this, thanks x
Can’t attach files
It’s pretty irritating that I have to use another email app just to attach files properly. Gmail only allows you to attach a link to a file in google drive, which isn’t acknowledged by most email support systems. It’s also irritating having to change the permissions of files in google drive to be accessible by anyone with the link because not everyone has a gmail account.
You can’t even attach files from local files, iCloud, Dropbox or any other cloud storage. And yeah, I’m aware you can go to the file on iCloud and share via email, but that doesn’t allow you to reply to an existing email or send multiple attachments.
Pretty crappy experience for the most basic of email functions.
The main reason I continue to use the app as my primary personal email client is that it sorts my incoming email into three folders very well and this is consistent with the gmail web version (which isn’t the case when you use a third party app, like spark).
Notifications, & Meet
Firstly I have found a bug with your Notifications on my iPhone. If I see an email listed I obviously don’t want and delete it straight away, the Notifications number often doesn’t reduce (or go away). I think this is because I deleted it before my phone had time to fully recognise it. So I have to go to my deleted file and open the file (but leave it there) and the Notifications number is then updated.
Secondly, I am not interested in the Meet tab. Where is the option to remove this tab as I would prefer to have my extra line back. Gmail is for email. I don’t want to have a conference call, I am a self funded retiree and don’t want to have office meetings. You are just forcing me to take on your rubbish. This is as annoying as having unsolicited adds at the bottom of the screen that other apps sometimes have. Put the Meet option in the settings so I can flag it ‘not’ to appear.
