Ratings and Reviews
just works where apple did not
I don’t write reviews normally but wanted to say anyone else having issues using apple mail for gmail and hotmail, where emails not coming through till you open app no notifications after trying all fixes, I gave up and downloaded this, now using this app all mail working all notifications working as should, easy to use and does work with attachments so not sure about other reviews that say it doesn't. Just one thing id recommend doing is keeping account for apple version still in settings, but turn off for mail that way you don’t lose contacts and calendar inputs like i did first time round this way you don’t get mail in 2 apps. Hope this helps.
I hate that i have to give it 2 stars
As a young professional i use lots of different devices to get work done and my iPad is a great device to have with me for meetings and travel to get some work done. The problem i have with Gmail is that it is ridiculously behind and anti-competitive with its features in this App. I love my google account, but let me be clear. Many young professionals might exclusively use Google services, but the vast majority of us use a lot outside of that ecosystem. I need to be able to quickly fire off an email with an attachment from my files. Apple’s files rightfully connect to iCloud, Drive, and most importantly OneDrive. I can’t for the life of me understand why Google won’t allow the Gmail app to plug into the files app and allow me to attach files from my OneDrive. Instead all you allow me to do is put my files on drive and then allow me to “share” the file through a link. This is needlessly anti-competitive and an inherently convoluted process. It’s forcing me to put more of my work flow through my Microsoft account. The only work around is to go to the browser, open gmail online, and then use the apple file system to browse my onedrive and send the file. Just make the app compatible with Apples file system. This type of activity is like making a gmail app for windows that won’t connect to file explorer, that would be pathetic and we’d all see right through it. Please make this a part of the future development of the app.
Given that google, generally speaking have a pretty good reputation for ergonomics and aesthetics (although some might disagree if you’re not a fan of brash and bold colours). I’m completely let down by this app, I’ve given it two stars: 1 because it’s free and 1 because I can at least see my email. I took the promo gmail advice, and download the app for a ‘great user experience’ for users of gmail or some such blurb. After doing so and seeing the sleek seemingly simple GUI only to find one of the least capable, extremely frustrating mail apps. You have to know the ‘secret codes’ to do the simplest of actions... like typing ‘label:inbox is:unread’ then perform another 3 equally obscure manoeuvres to just do the simple task of setting all emails to read. Other tasks are equally fiddly and not intuitive at all. I expected more to be honest, given that gmail is an extremely popular email choice. The is the least intuitive I’ve used and other free mail apps offer much more functionality. Woe betide anyone who uses it for corporate or work related mail. Sure it looks great, but is an awful, unusable and simple-to-the-point-of-uselessness app. Google/gmail, dropped the ball with this clunky app. Very disappointed and now, very much deleted!
