What is the Opposite of an ' Upgrade'?
In the ways that matter to me - some element of formatting, some ability to modify the forwards or the responses, the ability to have the desktop version and the iOS versions at least work together (poor man's continuity), the ability when attaching a photo to have the flexibility to scroll through your albums - this is "upgrade" is a distinct backwards step. This ostensibly upgraded app simply can't do things that it did very comfortably about two weeks ago, before this release. I gather the improvements are around the speed of the app, perhaps the appearance (approval there), certainly the swipe feature. But these issues around formatting flexibility, of being able to make adjustments to content that you want to forward, are so significant that I can hardly call this iteration an improvement. Without intending to sound harsh, these are non-negotiables, that is, if there aren't changes on this front then my fealty to the app will be strained. I believe the Gmail team knows how to listen, and the important thing is that the feedback move the team towards improvements and not stubbornness. Right now, two weeks in, this can't be called an upgrade and my earnest advice to anyone who hasn't is to not upgrade and to wait this process out. They can't leave it as it is. Someone has to blink first.
New update is still trash, hate it beyond belief
I wrote a strongly worded review a week ago after my iPhone auto updated the gmail app, I noticed there was already a new update with no reviews so I happily downloaded in hopes that the incredibly overwhelming plethora of extremely negative reviews of the latest changes forced upon us (literally >90% were 1 star) would have prompted Google to backtrack and admit they screwed up and just revert to the old UI.
But no such luck, I'm sure just like Windows 8, we'll be forced to with the awful, terrible, undesired, useless, overly complex, and lacking features of the new Gmail. That is unless you've already decided to just quit the gmail app altogether which I'm seriously considering. It's useless not being able to make stuff as unread when you get nearly 50 important emails most days like myself. You guys had it before; it looked and operated just like the desktop gmail, why did you decide "we should make it way different, they'll love that!" ???? Honestly this has to be the worst update to any app ever. I haven't updated my iTunes on my PC in 5 years because the new ones have sucked since they altered the UI and that annoyed feeling towards Apple is unanimous. Please don't suffer the same fate as them, give us the real gmail back.
The November 2016 Update is bad
New update is bad. Can't copy paste anything from a previous message. Not even my signature. Not only that BR if you write a draft and just sign your name at the bottom and go back to finish you name becomes an irremovable signature. It is also very confusing to know which account you're in. I'm now constantly paranoid I'm emailing from the wrong account and have to triple check. And the worst part of the update is if you switch accounts in an app, like while emailing a voice recording from your phone, the entire contact list from your switched to account isn't available. Only from the one it assumed you wanted to use even though you switched out of it. It's over all a lot less user friendly and annoying. Ugh! Now I just realized you can't even copy an email address from a received email or anywhere anymore! I even tried to pretend I was writing a new email to copy it from the "send to" box after it auto-populated and can't do it there!!!! Who's idea was this? Horrible bad ideas left and right that helps no one. Give them a new job. Email platforms isn't it! Definitely went backwards in time!
