Fix the bugs and problems, rather than adding unnecessary add-ons
BrianPickler on 7/18/2018
The new “snooze” option on the pull-down menu is great but why place it where the “move to” option was located? Poor planning. Moving a conversation is much more likely than snoozing. Keyboard entry is awful in the Gmail app. Click on the end of a sentence to add to it and you have to re-enter the last word? Please add “Inbox” as a checkbox option on relabeling a message. Relabeling a message from the Inbox to its already assigned folder is much easier!!!
Turn off Conversation view?
PMPQ0894 on 7/18/2018
How do I turn off CONVERSATION VIEW for the app on the iPhone ??
Used only as an adjunct to base mail app…
fjpoblam on 7/18/2018
iPad version shows the *entire* contents of the first email in any folder opened. (NO email app should EVER open an email without being EXPLICITLY being asked to do so. Gmail developers refuse to address this.) iPhone version cannot notify via vibrate-only: use for notifications. Gmail may fail fully to empty Spam or Trash when told to do so: some visible emails remain for awhile. Google developer support is of course zip, zilch, nil, nada, naught, zero, zip, nothing, non, nein, nyet, dooda, nope.
Notification Glitch
Kellen Taylor on 7/18/2018
Reading emails doesn’t change notification in most recent update.
Snooze Function
keith.scruggs on 7/18/2018
If you remove the Snooze function, I will give it a 5 star rating. The Snooze function is more of a hinderance than a help. I prefer the way that Gmail functioned before the Snooze function and box was implemented. I have found with the new update, when you try to open an email and read it, the specific email reverts back to being unread and will not open to be read.
Sunset56 on 7/18/2018
Make large, larger, huge text options available on iPhone. I’m new to iPhone, and thought I was upgrading. Only to learn the phone doesn’t unilaterally adjust text size from the settings, that text size is only if the app accepts the adjustments. This is nuts. At this price point I should be able to adjust the text size on ANY app. Period. Fix this. MAKE LARGE TEXT OPTIONS AVAILABLE ON IPHONE.
Noctis-sempai on 7/18/2018
I love this app I wish it can be more secure with finger print ID or Face ID
Can’t add more than 2 emails.
Araxiel13 on 7/18/2018
I used to have 4 emails on it and now I’m missing 2 out of 4. And I’m not able to add them again.
Latest update broke my account
Salem12 on 7/18/2018
I’ve usually had no problem with the Gmail app but the update on 7/17 made one of my accounts stop working. I’ve tried everything to fix it but I keep getting an error of no connection and now I can’t even load the account on the app. My other accounts work fine. And of course, there’s absolutely no one at Google to assist with this problem because I don’t pay them for access. Never mind that they make money off me by selling my browsing data. Thanks for the “customer service” Google.
Freezes constantly-
Aekochis on 7/18/2018
App freezes constantly on iPhone 6S. I have to kill the app and try again multiple times a day. Running IOS 11.4.1.
No working for one account
Stephano12345 on 7/18/2018
I have four accounts with this app on my iPhone. One account just stopped working today. It says no connection. All other accounts works fine. And I have no problem to login anywhere else to the account. So I removed the account and added it back. No help. It says “something went wrong. Try again later. “ Then I deleted the app and installed again, no help.
Best email app worldwide
Nick9999999999999999999999999 on 7/17/2018
This is the most perfect emailing app in the world. This app works better than I expected and I found almost zero bugs in it. I wish I could give this app 6 stars but, I can only give it 5 stars.
No Connection Glitch
yfidrjfjebwowb on 7/17/2018
I don’t know what’s wrong, but every time I open the app it says I’m not connected to internet/no connection but I know I am. Everything else works fine but this app doesn’t. I even tried turning my phone on and off, I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, but nothing works. Now it won’t even let me see my mail and says no connection. Any suggestions?
Wow 👍
Amandajayne11 on 7/17/2018
So I just got a mini notification in the app that I haven’t opened an email from Bed Bath and Beyond in over a month and if I wanted to unsubscribe. This was surprisingly awesome and helpful! With more discount shopping sites requiring a login before viewing their products, I’m subscribed to a ton of sites that I forget about and this a neat little reminder is a good clean up to that problem.
Mark as Important and Unified Inbox
PolMes on 7/17/2018
For some reason, it is not possible to mark emails as important (not starred, but Gmail “Important” feature) on the iOS app. Also, it’s great to be able to have multiple accounts, but it would be a lot more useful if there was a unified inbox.
Still not working after new update !!!!!
X-Voice on 7/17/2018
Updated this morning then the app said “no connection”. A few hours later, a new version showed up and downloaded again. Still the same message. Super disappointed.
It’s just an email reader.
amaracan on 7/17/2018
You can’t send emails with it, you can’t reach anyone to fix it, and my phone already comes with an app to read and send emails, so it’s really just a waste.
dugstug on 7/17/2018
Opens to “Promotions” category every time, I have to manually select “All Mail” to read my mail, no place I can find to change this default. Any time there’s a web link it asks if I want to open in Chrome, and presents a toggle to allegedly save my preference, which it ignores. These behaviors appear to be conscious attempts by Google to steer my behavior. Frustrating!
Where did all my emails go?
lobster1954 on 7/17/2018
My emails are still showing up on my laptop and they’re all still included on the Mail app that came with my iPhone. But years of emails have just disappeared from my Google app account on my iPhone. I’ve done everything I can and read what everyone else had to say but nothing fixed it so I got rid of it. I removed it and re-added and turn my phone back on and off several times but nothing helped.
Try again on update
KenReinert on 7/17/2018
Now email wont load unless Im on wifi & I constantly have a bubble saying I have a new message even tho I just checked email.
Stop ramming Chrome down my throat
volcker on 7/16/2018
Gmail app works ok but periodically bugs me to open links in Chrome. Every time I say "no, dont ask again", it asks again. Annoying, use this if you have no other choice.
Why give choice of browser every time
Chubacha on 7/16/2018
Every time I use this email app it asks me to choose the browser. Why not just open it in one of googles choice?
Select all in iPhone GMail app
Ah-ne on 7/16/2018
How can I select all in iPhone gmail app? I want to select all and delete or move to a folder Thank you.
Cvndbgk on 7/16/2018
I have adapted to the new gmail, but it keeps quitting when I am deleting promotional emails, and I mean when less than 20 emails have been selected. 🙁
Settings don't work
Skyler A on 7/16/2018
Constantly asks you to use chrome for links even when you click dont ask.
Recent update isn’t useful
josh ahren behrens on 7/16/2018
Recent update made it weird to add attachments. Can’t access anything now. Trying to send a pdf saved to my files and I can’t get there. Rating 1 star until this is fixed
Deleted one of my accounts
Nexupnext on 7/16/2018
Deleted my business email and I can’t recover it so now i have no access to that email thanks
Please add hyperlink Capability
Dabryguy1 on 7/16/2018
Other google apps allow hyper linking but not gmail. This would be a highly useful addition!
J’aime cette application
c 'est moi même on 7/16/2018
J’aime bien gmail
Now missing snooze function
ansel4 on 7/16/2018
Was a near perfect email app but after they added snooze function it has now mysteriously disappeared for some reason.
App quits when I hit reply
tigerlilyart on 7/15/2018
Please fix!!! I try again and again and sometimes succeed by replying to another email in the chain. Usually I need to reply to the specific email though. It has been several weeks. Let's go!!!
Still using threaded view
bfegadaddy on 7/15/2018
Reliable but now with a terrible layout and color scheme. Still using threaded view reminding us that Google is still NOT LISTENING!!!!
Doesn't work, frustrating
redolent1 on 7/15/2018
Can’t write long emails. I better kiss my girlfriend goodbye
Annoying sales pitch for Chrome
Nick1700 on 7/15/2018
I hate how when I click on a link in an email, I get a pop-up asking me if I want to download Chrome instead of opening the link in my default browser. Even when I ask not to be prompted again, the same annoying pop-up will resurface a few weeks later. You’re already profiting from my personal information—enough with the advertising already. Other than that the app works great.
Keep it simple to use!
Word Girll on 7/15/2018
I just tried to forward an email and couldn’t see a forward button. Used to be an arrow. Instead I see archive and snooze and all these other stupid buttons. I use gmail for personal use. Used to love it but they keep changing it to where you have to learn symbols instead of the simple reply/forward text. I can learn symbols just don’t like them. Just keeps getting too complicated like outlook which I hate. Gmail is great for if you want to save emails and find them later. But they are trying to make it fancy - it’s email!! Write, send, attach. We have too many other apps to deal with. Keep email interface simple! App shows all the inboxes at same time whereas in computer I was able to see primary email.
The app pales compared to iPhone's native mail app
Urbanfolkzine on 7/15/2018
I regularly receive unregulated emails to use the gmail app. I thought I'd address why I find it inferior to the app I had pre-installed on my phone: 1- The app only allows me to see messages dating back to a certain time. 2- the app does not allow me to multi-select or update multiple messages at a time. 3 - the load time it takes to reach older messages is interminable. The gmail app is adequate, but not a suitable replacement for the app that iPhone provides with the phone. The regular entreaties to use it more is a waste of your resources and my time.
Spammed me
epicfdgd on 7/15/2018
Spammed me by sending me an email to download the app. Love a company who always forces their “suggestions” on me.
iPhone X
Wabygayle on 7/15/2018
Finally! Support for iPhone X!
Can’t merge all the mail together
Gwendolyn18 on 7/15/2018
I prefer seeing all of my mail together, but whenever I open the app it shows me the “Promotions” group first, which is the absolute least interesting group of mail that I want to see. I don’t want to have to switch to the “All Mail” group every time I open the app. There is no way to change this setting (I’ve searched the web), and it’s very annoying. It seems like others have had this problem for months and Google has decided to not listen. Another really annoying thing is that there are ads sitting in my inbox, looking as if they’re apart of my inbox. I’m getting rid of this app and going to another mail app.
Doesn’t allow file attachments?
horbhorbhorb on 7/15/2018
You can attach images but not other files - the only way to attach a file is to upload to google drive then attach a link to it. Don’t know why they decided to leave out one of the most basic email features to exist Also asks you to install chrome every time you click a link with no option to stop asking.
Bluebox910 on 7/14/2018
The newest version is buggy. It isn't clearing new email (it still marks them as unread after I've read them) and if I delete an email it comes back. This even happens if I read/delete mail using a web browser. It shows up again on the app. It's also not showing new mail that's not in my primary folder, at least not consistently.
Mostly fine, with a touch of pop-up ads
ZZninepluralZalpha on 7/14/2018
Provides a functional and for the most part desktop-equivalent interface to Gmail, although many actions are a bit too buried in submenus and hamburger buttons. However, it sees every clicked link as an opportunity to push the Chrome advertising agent—err, browser—on the user, and the “Don’t ask me this again” toggle gets conveniently turned off on every app update. Hey Google: there’s a reason Chrome is not on my phone, and it’s NOT for a lack of constant skeevy “Did you know we make this too?!” pop-up ad behavior...
Clear format button, like desktop?
Psychor on 7/14/2018
Gmail is still missing a way to clear formatting like on the desktop. This needs to be added so when cutting and copying text emails don’t go out with mixed formatting. Thanks.
Mr blind
b:eta on 7/14/2018
I’m sure they did not do that for you
Future Shock Game design inc. on 7/13/2018
Gmail is the biggest joke I have ever seen in my entire life. Google was unable to verify my account and has offered up ZERO support there is no number to contact, no way of live chatting nothing I want help to get my account back so contact me immediately I am beyond frustrated and will never use google again
Have to switch back and forth between accounts
Hint of Impression on 7/13/2018
I have a personal gmail, a .gov gmail and a work gmail account. I can’t merge my inboxes together. I have to switch back and forth between my accounts.
Losing my interest fast!
Truth Healers on 7/13/2018
I have been a user of the gmail inbox for quite some time now. My concern of reference is about members who of lack the ability to check their emails often. When users log on their gmail by using their mobile devices and want to delete past emails, they’re only allowed to click each email one by one. This makes the task of deleting old emails tedious and time consuming. There should be a "delete all" tab and function of deleting every email within that category or specify the type to be deleted. If the deletion is made in error or by mistake, users should have 10 consecutive days to fix thus said error of deletion.
It's key
@DreadIron on 7/13/2018
You really need it to configure in safety 2018, or at least as much as primary privacy concerns allow us 2018
Not for me
mainhiaaa on 7/13/2018
Tried to attach a PDF from ibooks. This app has no other access but to last sent attachments and/or your camera roll. So difficult and frustrating that I gave up and deleted app. It has no ability to cross into other apps like Scannable, Evernote, etc. interface of emails was so confusing too - you have to open up another tab just to get to the next connected email. I love gmail on a comp but it fails as an app.
Gmail app only
Putmann on 7/13/2018
I don’t bother with the IOS email app- I only use the Gmail app
