I love this app.. but... - I have used Apple Mail for my mail client … well forever. But with Sierra I am having more and more trouble with mail. I am sure the Apple Mail problems will get worked out, but I went to try GO for GMAIL because I am so frustrated with Apple Mail currently. My business mail is all on GMAIL, but I have a personal email with some volume on Apple Mail. Of course, Apple Mail can access different types of mail accounts, including iCLOUD-based email and Google-based email. I have found it up to now to be functional. But GO for GMAIL Is soooooo… much faster, clearner, … than Apple Mail that I am thinking seriously of looking to find a way to do all my email via this app. Two things stopping me: 1) not sure if there is an iOS app that is “like” this app (from the same company would be nice… 2) (the biggie) I need this app to be able to connect to iCloud as well as Google. Might be a stretch to get Apple to approve that through the App Store… Then again, Apple would themselves (and their loyal customers) a GoodThing if they would just buy the company that does GO for GMAIL, disassemble and understand it, then redo it from the ground up to handle multiple email server types. (Unless the “company” is Google… ) I like this app very much… just wish that it could accept email feeds from the iCloud servers. JHS
Hellooooooo???? Any body still working at the office? - Before I upgraded my to El Captain, everything was running smoothly. Then after the upgrade glitches everywhere. The app only appears to work for a few moments after you open it. If you open the app and wait two minutes before trying to access email or switching between accounts, for get it. At first I blamed Apple. I thought the company was up to its old tricks again, just misbehaving like always. But its been well over six months since I upgraded and I’m still having the same issues. This is ridiculous. Fiplab I am about done with being patient. You’ve had plenty of time to fix this. Never have I ever used an app where you have to restart it everytime you want you use it! I see the latest update was December 18th, and you still haven’t been able to fix this? Really? If I could give you less than one star I would. Absolutely the worst app ever.

Fantastic Little Utility - I tried out several free and paid Gmail desktop clients and none of them met my needs as well as Go For Gmail. This one is a keeper!
Really bad memory leak! - This app would be (and used to be) great, but now there is a memory leak that the developer blames on WebKit. The app uses an additional 1GB of RAM every day until it completely bogs down the OS and has to be restarted.
Eats Memory - I like how it works. However, it will gradually eat up all the memory on the MacBook Pro until you explicitly quit. If they could fix the memory leak, that would be great. For that reason alone, I am looking for another one.
Good app, but huge memory leaks - What the positive reviewers say about this app holds. The major negative is the memory leaks; this thing is like a sieve. I regularly get back 10-15 Gb of Ram on quitting the app. That is not acceptable behavior for any app except those which need to hold lots of data in ram. Maybe this app holds your entire gmail account in ram, or tries to. If so, then you benefit from instant access to your email at the cost of beign able to efficiently run other apps concurrently. It’s a great concept, and if you can live with the ram hog, go for it. It’s supposed to be left up in the menubar for quick access to your mail. Mine stays unbooted most of the time because of the memory issue. Apple mail is far more efficient in ram usage than this app and I think that one is a bit leaky too.
Notifications …vs. Social / Promotions - I’m sure many (most?) people love Gmail’s ability to quarantine Social and Promotions email (spammy stuff) away from the Primary inbox. But your notifications are only capable of a grab-all notification. In other words, if I get 100 promotional emails in my box and 30 social emails.. can I not be notified about those?? Can you create a toggle that only allows for notifications in the Primary inbox? That would be awesome. Thank you for this handy menu bar email checker.
