Customer Reviews

Works well!

It definitely does what it is supposed to and that is bring Gmail to your desktop.

+The feature that I like the most about MailTab Pro is the simple red notification in the menu bar. It updates right as you get an email, so it is not retrieving your email every 5 minutes and it doesn’t make you refresh it or anything. The notification works very well.

+Another one of the things that I wanted was for the app to fade completely away when I click away from it and it does just that.

+The desktop mode is actually very convenient. It looks exactly like it would in your browser but is only a click away. Also, you can switch back and forth between desktop and mobile layout very easily and quickly.

+Full-Screen mode can be useful at times.

-My only real complaint is that it doesn’t really offer any simultaneous multi-email support. You can log into two accounts just like you can online but it can take a little bit to switch back and forth between each email in both desktop and mobile layout.

Overall, I am very pleased and is by far one of my most used applications on my computer.

Perfect replacement for Google Notifier

I found this while searching for a replacement for Google Notifier, which Google suddenly and inexplicably not only stopped supporting, but actually made unuseable (by sending an irritating message every hour or so to ensure that your Notifier always showed at least one “new” message. I was initially irritated at Google (after all, how much “support” can such a simple app require??). However, I am now thankful to Google—if they had not forced Notifier to stop working, I would have never found MailTab Pro! This is SO much better than Notifier. MailTab Pro not only shows an icon in the menu bar with the number of new messages, if any, showing, but if you click on the icon, it opens Gmail in its own proprietary window! You can check your e-mail, delete, and compose messages without having to open a browser! Maybe the best $1.99 I have ever spent in the App Store!

Just What I Needed

This is perfect, literally does everything that you need for GMail. The ability to resize and go into stealth mode quickly is great. Just enter preferences and set things up the way you like, every option is right there and then set the hot key for quick switching or making the app look like it’s off. Far better than the way that Apple Mail just will not play nice in the sandbox with GMail and it’s getting worse with every “update” or “new release” that Apple comes out with. I know that Apple is jealous and worried about Google but c’mon, do you really have to make the rest of us suffer just because you have a little envy/fear. Way to go FipLab, I continue to download most of your app’s as they come out, as long as it isn’t aimed at another program or platform that I don’t use and I haven’t been disappointed with one of them yet.
