Good for a while, then...
I don’t know if anyone else had this issue, but lately this app has been messing up my laptop. It would have the spinny beach ball thing, my laptop fans would start blaring and they wouldn’t stop. I tried force quiting the application from the Apple menu, but the Apple menu didn’t show it as closable, so I just gave up on it.
When the fans start blaring, spinny beach ball happens, computer works slower and it effects other applications as well by messing them up, not just with the speed.
If you have this problem with this app, I don’t think there is any other way to fix it then to uninstall it, unfortunately.
Faster alternative to opening a browser window
I’ve been using this product for several years. It’s ideal when in an airport on borrowed wifi - a very light client that beats the extended time my Apple Mail client takes to download and edit / respond to email. Using gmail’s tabs I can quickly delete a lot of email that I don’t need to actually download, saving me time and bandwidth. Several people have complained about the product causing a “disabled email” message - it’s not actualy this product that does that (although this product is impacted when that happens), the situation they are describing happens when more than one mail client for an individual mail account (such as Apple Mail) is left open on multiple computers. It’s a solid product and one I used frequently. Wouldn’t trade it.
Great When Working
I have Sierra on my macbook pro (mid 2012), and this app works great when its actually working. There is an icon at the top of my screen that allows me to easily access my gmail and do basically everything I can do if I was using safari. The issue is, and it has been happening to me every day sometimes more than once, that it freezes on me and I have to refresh it or close it out and then open it again. This has happened to me in the middle of writing an email and I had to start the email all over again because it didn’t save to my drafts. It’s a great idea and very useful when working, but I can’t stand the freezing any longer. I’m switching to a competitor.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
