  • Latest update reset my settings back to default

    By kawaiikoj
    Latest update reset all my settings back to default and missing some settings from last version as well as shifting some promotions to primary. (Not sure if it’s a bug or something wrong that happened during this update)
  • Keep it up.

    By Kitty Sloan
    So much better than the standard iPhone email app which does not give you live notifications. It’s so much easier to read and sort my emails with this app. I just don’t even use my other email app anymore. This updates better too. Keep it up.
  • Embedding Ads

    By whydoineedtopickabickname
    Now embedding ads which are designed to look like emails directly into your inbox. Completely inappropriate, instant deal-breaker for me. Deleting the app now.
  • I love this app. I use it all the time

    By brzzy5
    But lately the app has been not working correctly. The app would close when I’m mid typing in an email.
  • I like it

    By sato1234567890
    It is really useful for getting my school and other thing. Even my father has it. He uses it to do office while I use it to get the knowledge of what us happening in the school.
  • Pasting a text is a pain

    By domino1234567990
    While composing an email, try to copy a text from somewhere and paste it into the email. It’ll be a painful exercise 😓
  • Some times screen presented is very small

    By vijaykh
    Hi Sometimes when I open app, the view shown is one thin column type view and all content is sub merged in that only I have screen shot but can attach here I can send it once I get a email ID to send
  • Unreliable piece of junk

    By nutella_98
    Does not sync correctly with browser version. I move emails to archive folder using the browser. This app shows they are still in my inbox. Refresh, reboot, reinstall doesn't help. It's been like this for ages. Incompetent engineers making 6 figures cannot fix it.
  • All of a sudden, the badge constantly says “6”

    By Shaf-t
    Out of nowhere, my Gmail app now shows a constant 6. Whether I have zero emails or 25 new ones overnight, it just says 6. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled several times, done several hard reboots, and now I’ve removed my gmail account from the app. Even with no accounts set up in the app, it still says 6 on the badge. So no, I don’t have 6 unread chats like other suggested to me. Bc there’s no account set up in the app at all. Moving back to iOS mail.

  • It Gets Me By

    By Foxsa
    When I’m in a pinch and have to travel super light, I like having the option of packing my iPad instead of my laptop. Since I often have to work on the go, I need to be able to access my company email which is through GSuite. It’s nice that I have access to all of my work emails, historical and present through the app but it does have a couple limitations that are really frustrating. First, it doesn’t consistently carry over your custom signature. Mine is standard for our company with my illustrated avatar, contact info, etc. and it only carries over on SOME emails sent through the app. “Some” is a very generous way to describe it since it’s only happened once in the last year of using the application. Second, you can’t embed a hyperlink in a word. This makes for unacceptably unprofessional looking emails to clients. I know this potentially a limitation of relying on iOS, but Outlook has successfully allowed that feature in their application so it’s absolutely doable and unacceptable to not for a company as big and supposedly as innovative as Google.
  • Add a delete all

    By CaytlimR
    I like it but please put a delete all option I have too many to just select so I really need a delete all option.
  • Promotions landing in Primary

    By Mikhailry
    Love the app, but seems that right after most recent update, promotions started to land in the primary, so now I get massive amount notifications on my phone. I can’t see any reason other than the latest update, cause I was not changing settings for a long time. Please let me know, if it something else.
  • Too many notifications

    By Lynnnnnnndfsdf
    After the most recent update, the app started pushing a notification for every single email, even the setting says only primary emails.
  • Recent update stinks

    By Michaela White
    I updated my app yesterday. I LOVE my gmail BUT since the update, all of these spam messages are making it into my inbox and not in the spam/junk folder. Please fix this!!!
  • App fail

    By Evangelist 11

    By sant1469

    By westy311

  • Normally works well

    By KellieEileen
    Generally I usually do not have many issues with gmail, App use it for my personal email and business. However as of late it’s been crashing on my iPhone which is a huge No No. I can’t stand outlook I have to use it for work and am not a fan. However it doesn’t crash and reliable. Gmail work your bug fixes, It’s becoming all too common.
  • Bugs

    By Bartlby861
    The app has so many bugs. Whenever you receive the email and you’ll delete them still it’s showing you that you have one unread email no matter what... Really guys?
  • 5 seconds

    By lioncubs27
    I am a sloppy writer so I would like more than 5 seconds to undo also I liked it with out the new update
  • Latest update problems

    By Bmfraser777
    After the latest update often on my iPhone I won’t see any emails on my phone. When I turn it to landscape I can see them. I have uninstalled and reinstalled gmail. This is specific to this update, I’ve never had this issue before.
  • Falling Apart

    By mwa4
    This must have just happened in the past few updates, but all of a sudden this app is nearly unusable. I can’t type text into the search field, changing views makes the content disappear from the screen, etc. A month ago everything was working fine.
  • Can’t attach files from Files

    By NoAttachments
    The app allows for attaching files from “Camera Roll,” “Recent Attachments,” Google Drive, and even Send Money. But apparently it can’t browse through the iPad’s stored files in order to find an attachment.
  • Hard to attach files. Needs fixing.

    By pizza_dough
    It is possible to attach a file in a new message by using a third party app's 'share' function, but basically impossible to get that file into a reply to a given existing thread. Gmail should have a way to add an attachment to a draft or 'in reply to ...' or something when coming from a third party app. Presumably Google makes this difficult intentionally so that you use their cloud services. A common and annoying growth strategy for tech companies.
  • Needs remapping of keyboard shortcuts

    By Media Baron
    Needs remapping of keyboard shortcuts or let us customize it ourselves. Currently uses the ‘#’ key to delete instead of the ‘delete’ key. Several other keys would be nicer to have as different shortcuts. Otherwise this app has gotten a lot better lately.
  • Great, but a major problem

    By Awesomeperson1234422
    I love gmail it is my favorite email app, unfortunately there is a bug that just drives me crazy. So when I have an unread email it’ll have a badge notification to show how many unread emails. The problem is sometimes when I then go and mark those emails as read the badge notifications will not go away. I can only get them to go away if I mark some emails as unread then go off the app and then mark them as read. If this problem could get fixed I would really appreciate it.
  • Totally broken

    By CDWSC
    I don't know what they changed, but the app is totally unusable now. It will get stuck on landscape orientation for a few seconds, half the screen missing, and when it flips to portrait orientation only a narrow band will be visible. It looks as if all the features are compressed into that area and I can't tap on anything. I've checked that portrait lock is not on, I've restarted my iPhone and done everything I can on my end. None of my other apps are doing this. Uninstalling
  • Awesome!!!

    By Ranpatani
    I love gmail so so much! The app helps organize everything, and it’s a really great tool to use when you need to find some of your work
  • Generally good

    By Mmmmelodoius
    App keeps crashing (June 2020), try to open it and it’s just white, so I have to completely re-install.
  • Doesn't save drafts?

    By alliedog
    Serious flaw in a mail app -- drafts just disappear
  • Missing features and years of unfixed bugs

    By forced tutorials are lame
    The inbox app should have replaced gmail app. This app is a pile of crap.
  • White Screen Update

    By Grumpyies2
    I was on the Gmail app earlier today and it worked fine I just tried to get into Gmail app and all that I saw was a White Screen. I had to delete the Gmail App and reinstall it to get it to work
  • Love this app

    By M0xyXmp
    Obviously I love gmail but I have may to many email and I don’t wanna sit there for an hour deleting them so I feel like an option to delete all of them would be nice
  • Notification issue

    By Shaiq2552

  • No copy text

    By clisthenes920527

  • I'm totally blind & this update is annoying!

    By missydee81
    Since the newest update gmail voice over is rather annoying to use. But I'm stuck using gmail being blind cuz apples email is flawed worse. Now instead of a simple downward swipe for archive, it makes me double tap my screen. The bad part is is is it doesn't work all the time. Please fix this annoyance please!!!!!
  • Doesn’t notify me of new emails

    By kimf8
    I do not get any notifications of new emails, and the app icon displays that I have 4 unread emails no matter what. In the past uninstalling and reinstalling would reset it, but I have been stuck for about 6 weeks now.
  • Difficult

    By its_just tony

  • Overwhelmed

    By Brohan46
    I’ve had gmail for a long while and never bother to leave a review until now... My biggest pet pev is that I’m not able to delete all of my mail at once... This makes it a headache to just go through and delete over 400 emails... please fix this tedious issue and make it more user friendly.

  • This app is useless without working cut/copy/paste!!

    By BigMovie
    The cut/copy/past to external apps has not been working for weeks now. This is infuriating. I am going to have to switch to another app for email!!
  • Copy Paste doesn’t function any more

    By Disgruntled by Ineptitude
    Your copy and paste function in your app specific to IPhoneX is no longer functioning. Started less than a week ago. It works for other programs outside of gmail.
  • Can’t delete my emails

    By jznsnx dundd
    With my yahoo account I can erase a thousand emails at once with this new gmail crap I gotta go one by one 🤦‍♂️🙄
  • Broken

  • Forgetting settings

    By ProUser11
    Keeps logging me out and forgets all the preferences!
  • Always shows a notification

    By lukemc7
    I love the app except for the fact that there is ALWAYS a little notification “1” that just won’t go away unless I uninstall and reinstall the app. Then after a few days or weeks it comes back and we start all over.
