Version 7.8
Review by Gilwell

Liked it, but now I don't - It’s becomes worse than useless when it polls email so often that Google locks your account for one to 24 hours. When I think about, it’s not a lot diferent than another tab in my browser and that doesn’t get my email account locked. Here’s what Google says (without warning) Sorry. "To keep our systems healthy, Google has temporarily disabled your account. This primarily occurs when we detect unusually high levels of activity on your account. In most cases, it should take one hour to regain access. In rare cases, it can take up to 24 hours for access to be reinstated. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. Here are some reasons why this could have happened: Receiving, deleting, or downloading large amounts of mail via POP or IMAP in a short period of time. Sending a large number of messages to many people. Being logged into or synchronizing Gmail on many computers, clients, or mobile devices.” (a laptop, a desktop and a phone are too many devices apparently)

Review by FisherMusicInc

Liked it…until google locked my account. - This app need the ability to set a amount of time between checking for gmail. I guess it checks constantly and so, I was locked out of my gmail account (like others) for about 4 hours. Had to delete the app. Hope an update comes with a choice to check every 5 or 10 or 15 minutes.

Version 7.8
Review by BJS92

Good for a while, then... - I don’t know if anyone else had this issue, but lately this app has been messing up my laptop. It would have the spinny beach ball thing, my laptop fans would start blaring and they wouldn’t stop. I tried force quiting the application from the Apple menu, but the Apple menu didn’t show it as closable, so I just gave up on it. When the fans start blaring, spinny beach ball happens, computer works slower and it effects other applications as well by messing them up, not just with the speed. If you have this problem with this app, I don’t think there is any other way to fix it then to uninstall it, unfortunately.

Review by bbajoras

So simple and clean that I forget it’s their - Love this app. It works so well that I forget it’s not part of the operating system. Non-intrusive notifications. Easy to respond or compile a message. Automatically hides when I’m done with it.

Version 7.8
Review by Dingleschlop

Works great until it doesn’t... - This app works very well…almost too well. I am now routinely locked out of my gmail for periods of 24-48 hours at a time ever since I purchased this. When my Gmail is accessible, the app is very convenient, but I’m at the point now where it is not worth being locked completely out my account. As of now it’s just a complete waste of money. Please update app to resolve this!!!

Version 7.8
Review by dhuman

Faster alternative to opening a browser window - I’ve been using this product for several years. It’s ideal when in an airport on borrowed wifi - a very light client that beats the extended time my Apple Mail client takes to download and edit / respond to email. Using gmail’s tabs I can quickly delete a lot of email that I don’t need to actually download, saving me time and bandwidth. Several people have complained about the product causing a “disabled email” message - it’s not actualy this product that does that (although this product is impacted when that happens), the situation they are describing happens when more than one mail client for an individual mail account (such as Apple Mail) is left open on multiple computers. It’s a solid product and one I used frequently. Wouldn’t trade it.
