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).
It never cease to impress me that the gmail app can continue to improve just when you think there's nothing left to implement or improve.
The option to archive rather than delete is so simple yet so useful, the way it accurately splits up your social, promotions, and important emails is phenomenal and using it as part of G Suite (Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.) is smooth and easy. It even has a dedicated UI to managing your Google account, which is a lot broader than the Gmail app and useful albeit a bit unnecessary given the web interface and Google app.
You can use the big email services with the app and so far it seems to work great.
Unlike other mail clients its always up to date and notifies you instantly when you get an email, at least with a Gmail account.
Trying to find complaints to add to this review is very difficult and the only one that comes to mind is privacy, or the lack of it but given Googles new focus on privacy it might not be an issue in the near future. This is quite a downside but it's still worth 5 stars because it isn't at the fault of the app but of the service.
Overall it's an easy 5 stars to give and definitely consider using this app over the stock Mail app.
