Great functionality with few flaws
In the corporate world I am forced to use Microsoft Outlook as my primary email client. In the private sector, i use Gmail for almost everything else. Gmail has become a standard that other email sites attempt to emulate. The integration of its own suite of office programs has eliminated the need for more costly applications for senior users and youngsters. Google has learned from Apple in placing Gmail and Google Docs on entry level tablets and Chrome Books. I could continue this thread but I mentioned “flaws” in the title. Some people complain about the steady stream of bug fixes and see it as evidence of how poorly Gmail and other Google products were written. This is a false impression. What it does show is the speed with which the technical teams that Support Gmail and Google are adapting to the ever-changing environment of hackers spammers and other nefarious groups that are attempting to disrupt our lives. Most things that appear as flaws are really undocumented tools. —- 30 —-
One of the best apps ever
This app is one of the best apps I’ve ever used! It has almost everything that I could’ve ever imagined an app even having! I mean... you can EMAIL people with it, you can also RECEIVE emails from different people, and so much more! If I was to be asked what app would I recommend to anyone that lets you email people, I would most DEFINITELY say that I would recommend THIS app to about almost ANYONE! Since I’ve had this app I have NOT had ANY problems with it at all really. Except for that ONE time where I could not really receive any emails from anyone. But I was kinda glad that I couldn’t really receive any emails from anyone cause I have KINDA been getting some random emails from people. Other than that... I would give this app a five star rating. Thank you, gmail creators, for creating an app that lets me be able to email different people. 📧 I don’t really know what I would do without this app. ESPECIALLY for those people who I can’t really text their phone numbers.
Great mail app except for browser preference
In general I like this mail app a lot. I am happy to have my inbox sorted as it is on the desktop. I wish it was easier to attach documents from “Pages” and “Files” instead of only from the camera, recent attachments and drive. But my biggest complaint is this: When I go to open a link from an email and it asks if I want to use chrome or safari, I choose safari because that is my preference on my iPhone. I switch off the little “ask me every time” button. The very next time I go to open a link from an email, it could be the exact same link one second later, the browser preference window opens again, with the button switched on. It adds an unnecessary step every time I look at things from an email. Also, my saved safari things don’t all translate over to the safari that pops up within the app. I know you want me to use chrome because it is your product, but you offer a choice so it would be nice if that choice worked 😊
