It’s garbage
Email signature can’t be placed before quote
Being Z on 8/20/2018
I use both free gmail and paid G suite. I had to switch back to the iPhone native email app because the gmail app can’t place an email signature before the quote. I looked up online and it’s been like this since 2011 as far as I can find, and people have been complaining nonstop. It feels rude when you reply to a business email without a signature, looks unprofessional (like a text message). No one is going to scroll all the way to the bottom of an email thread to find my signature. I’ll come back when this is fixed, but google has been ignoring this for 7 years, so yeah likely not coming back.
Not receiving emails
kdn90 on 8/20/2018
It’s been two weeks an I haven't received any new emails missing important mail can’t figure out why
Received No emails
stepper1970 on 8/20/2018
I am not able to receive any emails since Aug 7. 2018 I have had this account for a long while all of a sudden nothing. Could it be hacked!
Attachment Frustrations
TheRiegleClan on 8/20/2018
Dear GMail, I am an avid Dropbox user and previously could attach documents/files (not links) directly to my emails through the GMail App on my iPhone & iPads. This option no longer exists. Why?? Please get back in sync with Dropbox as it’s such a hassle for the receiver to get a “link” and for the sender to have to describe “how to access” the item via a link....
Why can’t I clear my inbox?
NukEMCarp on 8/20/2018
There is no easy way to clear my inbox without selecting each and every message? I would rather ditch this account and set up a new one. The next time someone says Google is cutting edge, I’m going to laugh.

Break The Chain
otterish on 8/20/2018
Why can I unchain my messages on the website, but not on the mobile website or in this sketchy app? Also, the buttons are so tiny that they cause mistakes.
Badge is showing the total number of mails!
dlwrh on 8/20/2018
I like this app so much but I just noticed that the badge next to the icon shows the total number of my mails in the inbox instead of unread mails. The large number (over 5000) makes me stressful.
Needs 1 Major Feature!!!
Cody Overton Photography on 8/20/2018
I have debated downloading this app for a long time and always used the native iPhone mail client. With the native app I can view all of my inboxes on one screen! I have 3 accounts that I view on a daily basis all being Gmail. I have to click the button at the top left and switch between accounts to see their respective in boxes. I read that the android version of this app allows you to do that but I can’t find the option in the iOS. Come on!! Please tell me I’m overlooking something as I will be switching away from this app soon if not! If I have overlooked it I will review this as a 5 star.
ANCGmail on 8/20/2018
I've been a long time user of Gmail, and I use the app on an iPhone. In recent months, perhaps from new releases, the Gmail app routinely crashes whenever I'm responding to a message. This is worse when I "Reply All" and when the original message has an attachment. Please fix. Thanks
It’s downloading
Soso Banks on 8/20/2018
I hope it’s good this is my first time having a phone it’s a good feeling! My friends told me you have to download this app to make account/s and use it to sign in to facebook,snapchat ,and ofc instagram so i hope this app helps me to create my account and bye❤️❤️💗
Primary inbox not scrolling
tweissin on 8/20/2018
My primary inbox has several years of email but with the latest update, it’s not scrolling past the first page or so of my inbox.
Alejanrox on 8/19/2018
Como crean un sistema de correos donde ni siquiera se puede adjuntar un archivo desde el movil, una pérdida de tiempo usar esta app
wosjshdbjdidjehwjsidj on 8/19/2018
Please add an option to have your gmail app pin protected that way unwanted parties cant access your emails.
Notification actions don’t work
gootdude on 8/19/2018
Latest update broke the actions on notifications. Archiving or deleting messages via notifications does nothing now, which makes the app pretty much useless, great job.
How do I update?
Rev. Fred on 8/19/2018
When I tap download now, nothing happens!
One problem
Eh... A man with socks on. on 8/19/2018
It works no doubt but changing your profile picture is not working on my iPhone and probably on others to. Please fix this issue and make it possible to change your profile pic
Crashes on Launch on iPod touch
brian.bowling on 8/18/2018
The application used to work fine. After the most recent update it will no longer launch. It immediately crashes.
fifGawd on 8/18/2018
Stop asking to open links with chrome
Ttz777 on 8/18/2018
Every time this app updates it resets the asking for the default browser. This is an obvious attempt by google to try and get more downloads for chrome. It is insulting to have to reset it every time it updates, which is about once a week.
Fix plz
MehmetCAksoy on 8/18/2018
Sometimes when I open up the app, it immediately closes and won’t open up again. Just keeps closing down, doesn’t get past the Gmail Icon
Needs a mark all option.
Thisbishhh on 8/18/2018
I’ve been using gmail for quite a while and it’s great, but it really needs a mark all option. I have so many emails in my junk folder and promotions folder that I loose track of the things that I wanted to see. I have a tight schedule and it just takes too long to sit there and try to delete them all.
Still not there
Happytrees on 8/18/2018
I want to like this app but it just still not as convenient as the native os mail app. When I think I’ve deleted something it’s still there archived or in some other random box it’s just confusing.
Seriously lacking
JEEP-OIIIO on 8/18/2018
No way to select all, no way to mark unread for future reference, no way to mass select as read, and incredibly unintuitive for searching unread emails. I don’t mean to complain but how did this app get so many 5 star reviews?
Lack of email to a group
gatesbuster on 8/18/2018
You can’t use this app to send an email to a group of contacts. Therefore useless as you have to add each address individually. Also there isn’t a “All inbox” in the iOS app; there is one in the android app. So you cant see all your emails and have to open individually each account. On the positive aspect, you can use different “sent from account aliases” which is convenient when you use your gmail to aggregate multiple accounts; you can’t when you have your gmail accounts setup in the iOS mail app
Almost there...
AHornes on 8/18/2018
Love the update to turn off grouped messaging and conversations. Please add a setting to remove indentation with replies and forwards!!!
Where is Snooze option?
eyebix on 8/17/2018
The updated Gmail app has removed the Snooze feature which allowed you to choose to have the email show up later. Unless they’ve buried it somewhere (I’ve check every menu) that nice feature is gone.
Gmail mobile
MsGenRes2 on 8/17/2018
As a Gmail user obviously I love Gmail mobile, however, I would like to see an improvement when moving emails to files. Once selecting ‘Move To’ it would be most helpful to have a search option to avoid scrolling through the entire list. Thanks!
woolfman72 on 8/17/2018
Latest version has emails stuck in the every thing folder. These emails are not in the mailbox if I go to the webpage. If I try to delete or archive them I get the message “oops something went wrong recent changes may not be saved “ and the email comes back.
KinggRedd on 8/17/2018
Works great my favorite google email app
Search action causes app crashed
Sassaaa on 8/16/2018
As title, my gmail app stops and crashes everytime after I use the search func. It's really annoying.
Terrible app
Rev v bizzle on 8/16/2018
Google stop being stupid. Add a select all button option for emails like “spam” and “promotions” Come on, seriously! Its the 21st century... Stop being douce bags.
It was good, but now...?
Madi45678 on 8/16/2018
What happened? Everything worked well. It was smooth, no glitches or crashes. I loved the app because of how smooth it worked compared to other apps. Now all it’s doing is glitching. I can’t edit my draft emails without it crashing back to my home screen. Please fix this.
The update tab always shows 1 email
Jhitt3345 on 8/16/2018

I can’t unsubscribe and they spamming emails
No watch app.
Markmcak on 8/16/2018
It’s a good app for google mail, but useless to me without Apple Watch support.
Please Allow Option to Prevent Image Loading
Eugene Ko on 8/16/2018
People are able to track whether or not I open an email by attaching tracking images and this app does not have the option to prevent remote image loading.
Good but has problems
Benjaminallred77 on 8/16/2018
I enjoy the Gmail app for it is simple. However, the whole time I have had the app (over three years), the app tells me I have unread emails when I have read them all. I have done all sorts of troubleshooting: restarting my phone, closing out the app, deleting the app and re-downloading it, etc. Over and over this happens, it is very frustrating and I have considered deleting it.
Gmail Sign-in is Terrible
asimple^2person on 8/16/2018
The gmail app has a sign-in feature which allows you to sign in to your gmail accounts with your phone. Unfortunately, it seems to never receive the notification which tells it to do this, and is very unreliable. It’s a terrible method of signing in, and definitely needs improvement.
Finally the app is worth using!
OwingsMillsAlex on 8/16/2018
My original review had the app as being mediocre. But now that you have finally allowed for conversation view to be turned off on the app...the app is FIANLLY usable. Email is easy to read and file. Oh, and making it able to use Chrome or Safari to view emailed links is another added touch. Google Synergy at its finest.
Some great qualities and some negative
beepbeepbln on 8/16/2018
I love how versatile Google is in general. They really have cornered every market digitally and I enjoy their mail app to a certain point. I hate the interface, I hate that you’re limited to what settings you can control from the app. Versus needing detailed settings you’ll have to go to the online site. It’s quick and responsive in my opinion. Always get my mail quickly. But I hate all the add on mailboxes. The sub folders are irritating. And I think just purely speaking of aesthetic and visual design, the look could use some modernization. It’s look reminds me of yahoo circa 1996. Both the online full email suite and the app.... could be designed wayyyy more savvy imho.
Slow, Slow, Slower..
JYCMBA on 8/15/2018
With each "upgrade" this app seems to perform worse! Barely usable.. update 08/15/2018 - thought the sluggish performance might've been due to older model iPad.. recently upgraded to newer model.. NOPE - Gmail still EXTREMELY painful to use. Literally sit there waiting to type words. Using my Android phone with tiny screen is better than this user experience!
constant issues
ccanfield on 8/15/2018
this ap is terrible. the search function is never correct or accurate, it’s constantly losing my emails, refuses to scroll to select text, and makes it impossible to read long email threads.
Could be a bit better
Vin787 on 8/15/2018
I like the app, use it every day for work. I have a couple of issues with it though. Could you make it where we can delete an individual message on any given thread? Same way you could on the computer version, please. Also, please add an option to make pictures smaller size; the pictures you attach now to an email are huge when you view from a computer. Otherwise app is perfect for work, helps keeps things organized the way they should be.
Spell Check
Momof2gals on 8/15/2018
Spell check does not work on emails.
Gmail update
linda1477 on 8/15/2018
After updating, Gmail says “No Connection”
Trying to be a pilot on 8/15/2018
Doesn’t receive any notifications
CaityBuggy on 8/15/2018
It was be nice to actually have a select all button instead of having to individually select emails. Since it’s a personal email I get different shops and online stores and such sending me emails everyday 40+. It was be nice to see the feature on more than just the web browser.
