Good, but has potential to be better

I consistently have to keep an eye on email coming in from about 3 or 4 different GMail accounts.
Simply put, MailTab is the simplest way to manage this without having to deal without the idiosyncrasies of a traditional desktop mail client.

There are some opportunities missed here though. For instance, the unread message counter and the incoming notifications only address the currently selected account. If this could be improved so that notifications and the counter were updated by all logged-in accounts, you’d have a way of staying up to date without having to manually check each.

If the notifications themselves could trigger an account switch in the Mailtab pane, you now have something that resembles closely the mobile experience, and blows away the competition.

Great program… quick access to gmail

I have been using this program non-stop since i got it… i love that i can have quick access to my gmail without opening my web browser.

There are two view modes one mobile-like and the full mode (the one use) that has all the features of normal gmail

i recommend this to anyone who uses gmail a lot… great program

Its a good app, but one bug keeps it from greatness

I really like the app, and I use it every day, but about half the time, it opens the app window half way off the screen. Then I have to right click on the menubar, and select reset app window. I’ve sent the developers a couple of requests to fix this (or to lock the window position) and while they say they will fix it one day, they don’t.

Still, its a very good app, just frequently annoying.
