  • Great app crippling flaw

    By JC_Hawkeye
    I love the gmail app for very obvious reasons and I definitely favor it over the apple version of a mail app. Only one major problem here is i can not see my text when replying to an email... yea even changing the theme did not seem to work so i went and looked for answers online and i am definitely not the only one having this issue so it does make me feel a little better that this problem is not exclusive to me. Still not enough to call it a terrible app because its far from that but enough for me to not be able to use it on my phone which is the computer i have on me 100% of the time so please fix this.
  • Worst Email App Ever

    By Messy messy me
    This app continuously keeps saying no connection whenever I open it and either I have to refresh my email 10 times or it just doesn’t connect. I’ve wasted so much time trying to access my emails. I thought it would be convenient to have all my emails on one app, I was sorely mistaken. Waste of my time.
  • Keeps freezing

    By fiberspin
    Last update noticed when opening emails will freeze. Have to close and re-open numerous times. Frustrating.
  • Can't reply on long email threads

    By Jannekemarijn
    I have a love hate relationship with this app. It does most things just fine but often it's impossible to reply to an email. I either get a white screen with minimum of UI elements at the top and I can't quit out of it OR I see the quoted email but then it's impossible to write anything. Tapping the area where you need to type does not bring up the keyboard. I think this is the case for long email threads. Also notification badges are often wrong.
  • School Work

    By LoverofFortniteandRoblox
    It helps a ton with school work at school and I can create what ever I want and I can go in to it on any electronic.
  • Buggy beyond compare - stick to the desktop version

    By jsy131313
    After this update, I haven’t been able to refresh my Inbox — all it displays is a “no connection” message at the bottom. On top of this, the “sign out” button is so obscured to the point where I cannot even find it anymore. This is absolutely inexcusable for a service that directly affects my business correspondence. Stick to the desktop app and do not rely on the Gmail app until this issue is resolved.
  • Major bug

    By TDog_13
    There is a major bug in the gmail app. Since the latest IOS upgrade the gmail app would randomly not allow to respond to messages that have had images attached to them. The reply template would just not load at all. This is a major issue because we use Google as the corporate email provider. Few builds later, it is not yet fixed.
  • Dark Mode

    By Jatthias
    Here we are in December 2019 and still no dark mode.
  • Just wow

    By 1-800saucysouoop
    Leave it to google to not be helpful while I try to recover a really old email of mine, I Read all that I could do but what really surprised me was that ITS DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO ASK ME THE SECURITY QUESTIONS! But no It’ll ask me “last password” or to put a phone number in to see if the number is associated with the account. And don’t even BOTHER to put in an email you can access the code so they can “contact you later” bc it won’t work and you won’t get access it’ll just say “oh we don’t see how this address is related” WHO ELSE GOT MY CODE? IF SOMEONE WHERE TO TRY TO GET TO THE CODE VERIFICATION IT WOULD GIVE THEM A DIFFERENT CODE! I’m just very disappointed in how google completely locked down on accounts to the point I can’t even get the chance to answer security questions to get into an email I made over like 5 years ago.. just wow
  • Not really working

    By spooy dooopy
    When people send you a message it doesn’t come
  • Extremely easy and good email app

    By Primo Fan
    I like All google services and also I like gmail. Thanks
  • Why?

    By Packpumpeddlar
    I use this a lot, but there is a huge issue. For some reason, on mobile, you can’t clear out your entire inbox. ....why? This makes no sense to not have. Emails that I have mass deleted on my computer also appear on the mobile version. The new update is also very glitchy. Why would you release an update if it’s just gonna make things worse?
  • Still Disappointed

    By tristgust
    I truly am still disappointed in google for shutting down Inbox and sending it’s users to Gmail. It has a cluttered interface and just does not live up to the user experience that Inbox had implemented.
  • Create option to add email to tasks in the gmail app

    By Agam T
    This option is available in the web version where you can add an email to the tasks but this functionality is not available in the iOS Gmail app. Please add it.
  • Gmail thinks they own my device

    By uhadme
    Little fags have pop up banners saying “ Hi Mike” even when I’m not using Gmail app. I Deleted Spy Enterprise Gmail
  • Lack of features and promised features missing

    By tkukoc
    Update - months later still no dark mode, so glad I didn’t continue using their app. So many bugs that go unfinished and again dark mode is so easy to turn on... as a programmer myself I know what it takes to get the coding in... yet you guys act like it’s so hard.. insane! Don’t get me started, inbox was sooo much better then this app. So many features missing between the two and then there’s the promised dark mode that never shows up! Done with this, moving my mail elsewhere.
  • Please open the app 😖

    Please open the app😖
  • Many Flaws, Marginally Better than Mail

    By tjjoyceracing
    Can’t use with Badges turned on. Being better than the Mail app is no achey even ente at all. Lets be honest, Mail is pretty awful as it stands, so being the best app for email is no triumph/achievement whatsoever.
  • Won’t open

    By Jspradlin89
    Since my last update I can’t get my app to even open
  • Can’t use app

    By VW9898
    I have always loved this app but for weeks now I’ve been unable to use it because when I try to reply an email all I get is a blank screen. All I can use it for is to read emails but not reply or send emails. Deleting and restarting doesn’t fix. Until the issue is fixed I cannot recommend this app to anyone. Just use your web browser.
  • Dark mode?

    By King_sean365
    Where is dark mode I’m still waiting
  • Can’t reply to emails

    By Ckbrandt23
    I typically love my Gmail app but lately it’s been glitching and not letting me reply to emails!! The most convenient thing about the app is being able to respond to emails easily, but now all I get it a blank page that won’t let me type or click where I want to type at all!!
  • Thumbs down for visual standards

    By clesenski
    No dark mode? Inconsistent user experience between all Google apps? Limited utilization of iOS APIs? I’m embarrassed for you, Google. However, it’s par for the course. Per usual, Google starts a project then gives up half way. If this is a penalty for iOS users verses Android users, shame on you for your immature development tactics.
  • Where is dark mode?

    By Mixermusic
    Come on
  • Dark Mode

    By MR.P4CM4N
    Enough said... 1 Star until fixed.
  • Doesn’t respect “open in” setting

    By Dncrews
    PLEASE FIX SETTING! This app does not respect the setting to open links in Safari. It offers me the option, but ignores it. I don’t want your embedded browser, and due to redirections and sessions, I can’t just tap to go to Safari. If I have to copy and paste a URL to use my preferred browser, your app is broken. PLEASE FIX
  • iOS 13 split view???

    By Olоlо
    You have to support split view! Stop using your awkward custom UI engine and rewrite this app using native Cocoa.
  • Multiple account bug/glitch

    By nore avila
    I use my gmail app for three different accounts. I often find emails that were delivered or sent from my work email in my private email inboxes. It makes trying to balance the two very confusing and frustrating. Please fix this bug because I have noticed it for awhile and it still has not been fixed.
  • Comment

    By hwow and uwu
    You would make it to were you can FaceTime
  • Attachments

    By SFOhio
    If there’s a way to attach anything other than a link to a document in Drive (ie not even the document itself, let alone something outside of Drive), I haven’t found it. Which means it either is a miss in feature because it isn’t there or in UX because it’s not intuitive. Either way I want to attach things as files, not as Drive links.
  • Deserves 0 stars

    By Bism@rk
    Worst user experience ever. Scroll to top wouldn't work. Reading mails wouldn't mark them as read. Doesn't feel like iOS app.
  • Had dark mode for all of 5 minutes

    Then it went away Wth
  • Needs dark mode

    By Shastapie12
    This would be so much sweeter w dark mode integrated into the app.
  • Constantly crashing

    By reluctant crapple owner
    Since updating to iOS 13 the app freezes regularly and will crash if it’s not forced closed. Spying and Working properly otherwise
  • Missing features from Inbox

    By IouriCha
    Still missing features from Inbox : Purchases Financial Packages Annoying little ads in all folders - bring back Inbox! How can Google do a worse job than Edison mail for Gmail? Even Yahoo has a better email client
  • Dark Mode

    By Jocollier133
    Dark mode for IOS 13 would be great and I would love it even greater than I do now. Also,will give better rating.
  • Still having notification issues with latest iOS 13.

    By Louis.Branco
    iOS 13 has screwed up notifications with Gmail. No badges showing me unread messages. I have to go into the app to know that. New emails don’t trigger any notifications and my job is email dependent. I’ve turning every setting off & back on, cycling the power, getting the latest iOS 13, checking for the latest Gmail update, plus I read that another user tried restoring their iPhone to no avail. Lastly, there was a strange few days, before the last Gmail update that supposedly fixed the problem, where Gmail notifications were working just fine. On it’s own. Just decided to work again. Then it went back to the same issues for no reason. This reminds me... seems like the trigger for these issues started when I finally deleted over 100 unread messages, digging back a few months & having to use the search bar to get them all together for a marathon deletion of swipe after swipe. So maybe that shakes the iOS or the app up enough to try to figure out how many unread msgs there are ... for better or for worse. Maybe if I let it build up again, it’ll be for the better? Here’s to hoping. Google!! Please fix this mess! It’s 2019, for crying out loud. Go back to basic, reliable functionality! You too, Apple! :/
  • Dark Mode on iPhone? Not so much

    By ManOfNumenor
    Cannot get Dark mode to work on my iPhone.
  • Decided to switch to the native mail app.

    By 닌자거북이
    Can’t attach files in cloud file servers other than Google Drive. Deal breaker.
  • Fix the notification issue

    By sos please fix
    I am still receiving notification bubbles when I don’t have unread emails. Please fix this ASAP
  • Excellent app

    By pichochos
    I’m checking this app every day
  • Dark mode

    By RICKY1176
    Google should implement a dark mode to all of their apps since everyone else already has it.

    By Cdorr1979tops
    So I wait for a 5 months for dark mode. Finally get an update and I still don’t have it ? What in the world ? 1 star until fixed. Stop it with the slow rollouts! And stop with the bot on twitter telling us it’s coming.
  • good app but little bug

    By szymiiiii
    this is a great app, i use gmail for school and for my personal needs. it’s great works fine but on the mobile app, all my friends have dark mode... but when i try, its regular white mode. then they show me the setting but it’s not there! pls fix this little bug because i prefer dark mode over light.
  • Still incorrect badge counts

    By gagirlk
    Would be 5 stars if they’d figure out a way to correctly fix the badge counts problem. I’m tired of the app saying I have emails when I don’t.
  • It’s almost 2020 and still no groups

    By Sparrows Dream
    I have many devices but cannot use Gmail to email to a group or label or whatever. It’s a total unmitigated travesty.
  • Very Buggie Update

    By Lighthouse_20
    This latest update is terrible. It won’t let me delete old emails and shows doubles of all my new emails. I regret updating. It worked great before this.
  • Needs Dark Mode

    By JJstar
    Good app but desperately needs dark mode. (Been waiting since September...) 5 stars once it becomes enabled on my iPhone XS Max.
  • Can’t find book saw on some show

    Love this girl and want recent book of hers but nothing rings a bell? So talented and don’t understand why no work? The book is about the addiction in her life mostly. Anyone?
