It’s great
Critical functionality lost
Alpesh P on 2/18/2018
Update February 2018 Phone number & address hyperlinks function again! Update July 2017 Recent updates lost short-lived ability to dial phone numbers directly from email message. Back to tedious copy-paste-call. The reply suggestions are interesting though. Saves about 10 seconds but I'm not sure how I feel knowing that google is parsing and understanding all of my email content. Update. All of a sudden, I can now edit text in forwarded messages...I had not updated the app, this functionality just appeared on its own...just like in google's map app the nearby traffic widget just stopped working on its own one day. Curious. Signatures still are not tying into my web gmail settings and are completely unusable for aliases and HTML formatted signatures...which I need for my business use. At least give this functionality to your paying customers! Also realizing how much I miss the reply & forward buttons at the top of the screen in gmail 4.x. Many improvements in gmail 5.x but they do not make up for lost features. Original review: BEWARE. gmail 5.x is simply rebranded inbox and lacks the same critical features, namely: -horrendous signature handling. No HTML signatures. No alias specific signatures. (fixed)-message forwarding limitations. Cannot edit forwarded message. There's a longer list of reasons I hadn't switched from gmail 4.x to inbox but those are more preferences as opposed to critical requirements to do my work. The 5.x search improvement is nice but irrelevant since I can no longer use the gmail app for work so I'm now searching for a new mail app for the first time since a native gmail app was introduced. Disappointed.
Love the new App for iPhone

LOve the new app for iPhone, it allows me to manage multiple Gmail accounts with the click of one button!
Google still thinks people don't need to print
Ferg121 on 2/18/2018
With the latest update Google still thinks people don't need to print emails. With the latest update, now Google really wants you to load Chrome. It keeps asking what browser you want to run. If you try to deselect “ask me each time” it will ignore your selection. It appears that Google is making this worse each time it updates it.
Google the greatest thing ever
Think realisticly on 2/18/2018
Love gmail greatest app ever. Google thanks for changing the world . We owe you!
Horrible app
Yu665 on 2/18/2018
One for Android wasn’t that bad but one for iPhone is the worst email app. The most irritating is that it groups emails with no any logic and there’s no way to turn it off in the app. If I have a conversation with multiple emails I never can find one I need.
Good app works well
Ethan1963 on 2/18/2018
Easy to use - performs well. Stable. Highly reliable. Almost invisible like all good infrastructure.

Gracias a dios existe Google
Better than other on IPhone
Jcanales39 on 2/18/2018
This app works fairly well on my iPhone and is simple to navigate. Connects well adapts to other apps and allows for seem less work.
Could be better
me4wsu on 2/18/2018
Had not kept up with other cutting edge email applications. Need to add the ability to do more by swiping messages than a single option.
Best search and organization
Ashen889 on 2/18/2018
After 9 years I can still find important mails from 2009!
Open Browser option
Longdrive472 on 2/18/2018
Get it now!!!!
b3_3asy on 2/18/2018
This app works flawlessly. Easy to use and haven’t had any issues in years. Seamless usage across different platforms and operating systems.
Does Google purposely reduce functionality on IPhones?
Elliot F. on 2/18/2018
One example of this is that only conversational view is available. I have to use Mail to see individual emails.

Been using Gmail for as my email client for years, it’s always been reliable.
Keeps crashing, won’t update mail
Throwaway123 on 2/18/2018
Normally I love this app but it keeps crashing, won’t update mail
Options Turn Off Threads
Slarvey on 2/18/2018
Please give option to turn off threads!!!!!!! Badge count doesn't reset and my emails don't come through anymore. iOS 11
Great app but...
Hyscbmlitz on 2/18/2018
Needs a way to create filters (ie to automatically delete emails from certain senders, not sort into folders) on the app! I get so much spam that I don't even want to have to deal with it in a spam folder and I miss this feature from the desktop version! PS why do you keep renaming your icon file? No need to change that every update, it ruins themes.
So far so good
RachieLeigh0803 on 2/17/2018
I’ve had this app for awhile. No problems yet. Just now downloaded Google Home app let’s go see how it is :)
Easy use
Gmbjrocks on 2/17/2018
Pieces of symmetry!
its ok
Yawkism on 2/17/2018
its good for email, deleting should be easier.
Deleting dating sites
momDrewnChris24 on 2/17/2018
I had signed up with and soon I was ready to delete my profile. I searched for ANYTHING that resembled a delete or unsubscribe button, but still unable to get it done!! The flirts and winks and emails continue to flood my inbox!! Can you please share this info with me as well as the rest of the world? Thanks...
Fantastic app!
TIPIDreamer on 2/17/2018
I love the gmail app! Fantastic, intuitive and fast. Sometimes an email vanishes when I accidentally swipe it, so I need to learn more about that. Overall, great job!!
Unless you use Chrome, Skip It
AKHITK on 2/17/2018
Every time I click on a link in e-mail, I am presented with a pop up asking what browser to open link in. Even though I’ve unchecked the box to always ask. Frustrating. I’m back using Apple Mail until I find a better option!
Nice and Interactive
Brenda4444 on 2/17/2018
I really like to be able to use my Gmail Calendar for family events. I use color coding and it integrates with my Outlook calendar for business. The color coding let’s me see who in the family has the event, daughter-ballet, son-football, Bible Study and do on. I am sure there will be more exciting things to come from Gmail calendaring.
Maromontes on 2/17/2018
Muy buena app
Email should be simple
Jason Merritt on 2/17/2018
An email client should be simple and have a reverse chronological sequence of emails they can be read and filed away or discarded easily. I just moved from Microsoft because they’re trying to be something more than an email client, now I’m having similar but different issues with Gmail. I also tried Gmail inbox and it is overly cumbersome.
New bug
destiny1 on 2/17/2018
I can understand why a company would want to ask if, maybe, I’d rather use their browser when I open an email from inside their app. However every single time since the latest update is way past old already. Each time, it pops up. Each time, I make a selection and tell it not to ask every time - only to have this cycle repeat with the next link. You really need to fix this so it quits asking, it’s rendering an otherwise great app very frustrating and near useless.
A lot of great things here. But......
Blues__Purist on 2/17/2018
This app is really useful and it’s fast! However, for some strange reason, you can’t toggle the “important” flag on a message here. In the tree on the LH side, there’s a filter so you can view messages that are marked as important, but what good does it really do if you can’t check that field on or off for a message? Seems like an oversight, and it’s been this way for years. I use the important field a lot to track messages that I need to deal with. If the app had this capability, I’d probably rate it 5 stars.
Best email
Nutrprofe on 2/17/2018
I use gmail on all my devices.
Web browser picker broke
J Pechter on 2/17/2018
Use to be able to pick Safari and tel it not to ask ever again, but now it asks every single time I click on a web link in an email even though I have toggled that off.
Definitely has problems with 5 + email accounts
mas90guru ct on 2/17/2018
The app will prompt you repeatedly not to use 5 or more accounts. I’ve found that to be right-on advice. I had 3 Gmail and two O365 and the freezing and pausing during use made the experience unbearable.
I like it but one problem
Cooper master on 2/17/2018
This is an amazing app, just lately, I have had to go in , shut it down , and go in again. It’s freezing randomly, how is this fixed?
Best app for gmail except...
LifetSavert9111 on 2/17/2018
Best email app for gmail. There is only 1 problem. You can’t select all and mark as read. If that was possible, I’d rate it 5 stars for sure. Seems like it should be a standard feature but what do I know...
Apple Watch
MiMcL on 2/16/2018
Unfortunately, Gmail does not run on my Watch, which is too bad because it works so well on iPhone and I iPad.
Mike denuf on 2/16/2018
My gmail app continues to crash (started happening three weeks or so ago) on my new iphone 8, and I have the most updated version. I use my email for personal and business use and it continues to crash. This is causing a lot of unnecessary distress. I havent had any issues with any other apps on my phone in years. Really surprised by this.
Love it
Ahmadul on 2/16/2018
Organized and more efficient to use.
Vun512 on 2/16/2018
Haven’t been able to receive emails since January ... So frustrating!!!
Can’t imagine a day without it

Gmail app
Sauce_Bigavel on 2/16/2018
The application keeps crashing I don’t know why but it needs to be fixed the bugs are annoying to be honest.
Good, room for improvement though.
Tim Delier on 2/16/2018
I have been using this app for a few years now, and in general it meets the needs. There are still some features in the built-in Apple Mail app that would be nice to see in this app. I get frustrated with the lack of features and when features are added, they are silly useless features like smart reply, which is useful if I am sending a text message, but not at all useful for email. 1. It’s great that you now follow the text size set in the settings app, however, for whatever reason (likely the font used), the smallest setting which looks great all throughout the rest of iOS, looks microscopic in the Google apps, have noticed it in both the Gmail app, and Google news. Please fix this, or let us change the font. I want my fonts small, and iOS does a great job on the scaling, but something with your implementation does not really follow the rest of iOS. 2. It would be nice if you allowed a universal inbox, a central place to see all accounts I have setup and respond, etc from one place without having to switch accounts. The method to switch is cumbersome with multiple accounts and with both business / personal email coming in, lots of email and lots of switching back and forth = waste of time. 3. The option to delete a message and automatically load the next unread on the screen would be great. I do system administration, as a result I get a lot of monitoring messages, sometimes I need to quickly go through them, would save time if I didn’t have to click on each new message and instead it just loaded it when I closed / deleted the one I am on instead of taking me back to the inbox. 4. It would be nice to see the active sync protocol enabled for non G Suite business only customers again. The fact that it was removed back in 2013 was a shady tactic to push people to your own app, with it’s glaring missing features. The IMAP protocol works, but push is so much better than fetch. Overall the app works better with Gmail than the native app, which is to be expected, but there is a lot of room for improvement here and I still find myself jumping between the native mail app and this one from time to time due to features, or lack thereof.
Best email app but notifications are still broken
michaeljdennis on 2/16/2018
The badge number doesn't properly reflect unread emails. Notifications are no longer cleared after opening the email on another device.
Great app but I would like to see more options
Ninjakicks009 on 2/16/2018
Love the app and how it organizes everything for me but I wish there were options to block people and report phishing scams. When I open the spam folder online I’m able to do those options but in the app I could only report it was either spam or not. But everything else is easy and wonderful to use.
Apple Watch
JK-EMT on 2/16/2018
When are you going to have an Apple Watch version ?!?
Hate Conversation view!
matveika7 on 2/16/2018
Turn it Off!!!
Will keep asking you to download chrome
poomfatty on 2/16/2018
When clicking on URLs, it asks which browser you want to use (Chrome or Safari). Even though I keep saying don't ask anymore and selecting Safari, and I don't have Chrome installed, it still asks me this same question every time, even when clicking different links in the same email.
Great app
Ferrari888889 on 2/16/2018
I am new to google email services but already huge difference vs yahoo mail. Yahoo i have been using for over 10 years. Gmail app loads at the snap of the fingers easy to use and combines everything google into 1.
Emilano123 on 2/16/2018
Best app.
