  • Inefficient Sent Box view!!

    By lpsbw
    The sent box DOESN'T list who you sent the mail to??? Instead it shows "me" as the sender for all. There's no way that I have found to change this! The only way to know who you sent to is to open each one or do a search. This seems VERY inefficient and a big reason I don't use this mobile app!!
  • Could be Better

    By Frogstofall
    Overall the app works nicely. It’s well organized and responsive. One major complaint is when attaching files or photos, you can’t chose the location which means you have to scroll forever or can’t even access the attachment at all in the first place. Would be nice if the app gave the option to chose the source of the file or image you want to attach. I have 5000+ photos on my iPad and they are categorized by folder and I can’t even access those folders separately.
  • Great app

    Better than the website
  • Worst Google App Ever

    By O.F.M.H
    Why does this app have a 4+ rating? Worst UI EVER. To reply to an email you have to press the ... then select reply or reply all instead of having an intuitive reply icon. When you select to reply you still have to touch the screen to select an insert point to begin replying. Google iPhone team, look at the web interface and recreate the simple workflow.
  • Bugs or bad features?

    By eastlaker
    Gmail app continues to be plagued by issues. Are they just bugs or did someone actually design them to work this way? Either is inexcusable in this case — these are both so pervasive and frustrating. 1) When I click a link in an email, the app pops up a question about which browser app to open the link in. I pick Safari (because I don’t have Chrome and I don’t want to install it). I also choose the option to NOT ask me every time. Guess what happens next time I click a link? It asks me which browser to use. And it does this EVERY TIME I click a link. 2) On the iPad, it marks emails as unread too aggressively. When I archive or delete a message, it marks the next one as read — no matter what. If I’m not ready to read it yet, I always have to follow up with clicking the Unread button at the top. Even when I go into a folder to see its contents, the first email is marked as read. PLEASE ONLY MARK SOMETHING AS READ IF I INTERACT WITH THE ACTUAL EMAIL — click on it, scroll through it, etc.
  • Do not ask again not working

    By Kevkev06
    Final version keeps asking whether I want to use Safari or install Chrome to open links. Every. Single. Time. Do not ask again doesn’t work - very annoying.
  • Lack of Threading is Nonsenae

    By ericpace7
    This app is great but the fact that you cannot turn of threading is ridiculous. It makes it incredibly difficult to delete messages in the middle or beginning of a thread. So basic for email. So unlike Google to ignore.
  • Horrible

    By Chinielicier
    This app is horrible when I log in they tell me something is wrong all the time.
  • Need an ability to create a group

    By ~someone~👸👧👩
    I really love the gmail app and it is significantly better then the mail app on apple devices. It rarely glitches or crashes and i have never missed a email with it. I like how it automatically saves emails as drafts. The only thing that i would really like to see happen is the ability to have a group of emails saved together so I don’t have to spend time typing in several emails every week. I have to send out a email every week to the same people and it would really help if there was a function to just enter all these emails at once.
