Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it.


I currently use Gmail for my personal and work email. The web-based version on my desktop is excellent and I have no complaints. When I downloaded the Gmail mobile app for my Iphone 7 & iPad everything seemed to be perfect until I noticed that my signature was ending up at the bottom of the email chain ( I stopped this on the web side by selecting Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it.

My question is, when is Google going to fix this signature issue on Gmail app. Is there a way to have my signature inserted before the quoted text in my Gmail mobile app? It doesn't look professional when I write an email without a signature right after saying "thanks, or sincerely" as there is no signature after that.

A couple of very annoying ommissions

On the whole this app works reasonably well, but i have to give it a low rating for 2 major reasons. There is still no option to “swipe to delete” despite this being the standard for pretty much every other app. Google seem to be hung up on archiving emails rather than deleting them, but it would be nice if they gave us the option of which we would prefer. I know i can delete an email once i have opened it, but there are plenty i want to delete without having to go that extra step.
Secondly, they continue to refuse to implement split-screen for iPad, despite there being a number of updates since that functionality became available. Gmail is the only app i use that hasn’t activated that function, and i can’t for the life of me think why. With the extra real estate on an iPad Pro screen, i use split screen a lot, and it is very frustrating that Google won’t let me do that.



Overall a great app. Really clean design, fast, and smooth UX. Two features I would like to see:

1. Unified inbox.

2. More control over signatures. I can’t see/edit my signature on a per-email basis; instead Gmail auto-inserts it after the email is sent. Unfortunately this adds unwanted formatting. Also, when replying my signature is added at the very bottom of the email instead of directly under my most recent message. I’d really like the Gmail web client feature “insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the — line that precedes it” to be available in this app, and for the signature to be inserted into the message body as soon as I compose a new email/reply instead of being automatically inserted after the email is sent.
