LIke it, hate the ‘monthly fee..'


I like it, and a revision ago it was great (it somehow still works well on my macbook pro) but after moving to an imac no matter the version I get ads. It used to be you could pay a flat fee and remove them… now its a monthly fee of $1.99. I want to support the developers, but I don’t want to pay $1.99/mo just to use this without annoying ads.

Google Notifier Replacement


Unless your needs are very basic I don't suspect you will be using this as a replacement for a full featured email client. However it is a great replacement for Google Notifier. This is exactly what I needed. Due to differences between traditional email servers and gmail I have never been thrilled with the experience of using standard imap desktop clients with gmail. To get the most seamless and frustration free experience with gmail you really need to use the web app in my opinion. But without a mail application running in your dock to notify you of new messages you may accidentally close your browser tab and forget to check your email for some time. If you need to provide timely responses to email this could be bad. Mia for gmail solves this problem for me.

I did not use the previous version which had a lot of negative comments about the authentication. I can say that with this version I had no problem authenticating to Google using Google preferred oAuth 2.0 mechanisms.

January 28, 2015:


The app doesn’t work unless you’re willing to make your gmail account “less secure.” After installing and entering my gmail account & password, this said it was “unable to authenticate with the current session’s credentials” and I got an email from Google titled “sign-in attempt blocked.” Apparently this app doesn’t meet Google’s requirements for being secure-enough to be trusted to access Gmail accounts. In your Gmail account, you can turn off that security check to allow this app to work, but I’d rather see this app update to jump through whatever hoops Google requires than flip some switch in my settings that says it makes things less secure.
