Needs Update

Works pretty well for having an icon for email I can get to easily instead of searching through my dozens of windows and tabs to find my inbox every time. Also puts up the little notifications when an email comes in so I can decide whether I want to stop what I’m doing to go see a particular message if it wasn’t already enough to see the From and Subject of the email. Not constantly check my inbox. Also hoping to save some of my memory since it is a heavy load on Firefox for some reason to have a couple of gmails open for a while. I tried a couple of other similar ones, but didn’t like them as much as this because it’s almost lterally an iframe to gmail, not someone else’s attempt at building an inbox.

One limitation I find is that you can only attach one file at a time. So if you’re sending 3 or more pictures it becomes tedious. But still not a deal breaker.

Someone coplained that when they try to open another account (I paid for the upgrade to have multiple accounts) it opens a browser window. I think it may have done that to me too, just have to someone set it up right. Now every time I open it, 3 of my gmails are automatically opened and logged into. Very convenient for mulitple businesses.

I do see the 'This version of Chrome is no longer supported. Please upgrade to asupported browser. Dismiss’ yellow alert bar at the top. Clicking it opens my browser, which I assume would have no effect on this app. I’d love to see that go away.

Overall it’s good but it’s too expenisive


I have multiple email accounts and I really want to have an email app to manage my emails. This is a good one but costs a little. But after I actually bought it, it asked me for extra $4.99 for adding more than one accounts. If I don’t pay, I would wast my already paid $1.99. It is not much but still irrtating and deceptive.

Great app but it crashes and needs a few restarts


Awesome desktop functionality for Gmail. With some minor fixes this could be an amazing app. Sometimes it has trouble loading drafts and email and needs to be restarted. Also not 100% reliable when it comes to get gchat messages. That said, I’ll still use it into the foreseeable future.
