MailPop PRO for Gmail
By Binary Bakery
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
We love Gmail as much as you do. That's why we created MailPop PRO for Gmail. It's the simplest, most fluid way to access your Gmail account.
True to Mac functionality, MailPop PRO is a simple and slick tool for accessing your Gmail account.
After launching MailPop PRO, all it takes is a single click on its menu bar icon (or keyboard shortcut) to access your Gmail account in a jiffy. Want to write an email instead? All it takes is a right-click on the icon (or keyboard shortcut) to open a new message window!
Chock-full of awesome, mouth-watering features:
*INBOX SHORTCUT (or click on the menu bar icon) to quickly open MailPop's window.
*COMPOSE SHORTCUT (or right click on the menu bar icon) to quickly open a new message window, complete with a Media Browser for quickly dragging-and-dropping attachments!
*CLEAR AND INFORMATIVE MENU BAR NOTIFICATIONS. Menu bar icon notification color graphic and numeric (number of unread messages).
*FULL DESKTOP VIEW MODE WITH CHAT.
*FULL TABLET VIEW MODE. Love Gmail on your iPad? Now you can have that same, beautiful view on your Mac (in fullscreen too!).
*MOUNTAIN LION AND GROWL NOTIFICATIONS.
*ABILITY TO MAKE MAILPOP AS YOUR SYSTEM-WIDE DEFAULT MAIL APP. All mailto: links will be handled by MailPop. It'll automagically open a new compose window!
*OPACITY CONTROL. Go sneaky and use Gmail at work!
*SHORTCUTS ABOUND. Besides the customisable pop-up and compose shortcuts, standard shortcuts include CTRL-R to refresh and CTRL-N to compose a new message within MailPop's main window.
Click on the gear icon in MailPop's window and open the Preferences to customize shortcuts, notifications and other features.

Functional, does the job. May not look great while doing it.
I've been looking for a way to write a quick email without loading up Mailplane or whatever mail app I am prone to be using. MailPop PRO does the trick. One keystroke and bam, I'm writing an email. There's a brief load time but it's barely noticable. I don't know often I need to pull up the mail list - it essentially is a wrapper for the iPhone version of Gmail so keyboard shortcuts don't work - but it's fine. Really, I just needed the keyboard shortcut and quick email.
The design is acceptable. Would be better if it felt more Mac/modern and less Win98.
A few improvements needed:
Moving a message to a folder is quite convoluted.
No tool tips.
No way to set a color label for a folder, though it recognized my existing colors.
How do you create a new folder?
Didn’t read all my messages I had in my folders: This is bad!
Generally difficult to navigate (tool tips).
A button named “Menu” when in Preferences acts as a back button (a menu might be a good thing if there was one).
A back button is needed for all the dead ends there are when trying to figure this utility out.
Not recommended until improved.
When I go to the G+ tab, there is no intuitive way to get back to my mail. I have to use the refresh button instead, which is not standard usability. This application uses way more memory than my apple mail client. Something that is essential to my productivity at work is gchat. Having a compact UI for gchat that doesn't interfere with my emailing needs would be the best thing, since I often use both simultaneously
