Great App: Very Helpful, Saves Time... - Very helpful app. Saves time not having to open a browser to access Gmail. *** Note to developer *** I would GLADLY pay extra, upgrade, etc. --> IF there was an option to "Check All" or "Select All". That would make it SOOOO much easier to clean out my inbox. There is an iPhone app that has that built in. They are using the mobile verion of Gmail, just like you are, so I know it can be done. Their app is called iMailG. Thanks for a great app. ** Update: 5-17-16: I still use this app every day. I still love it. I couldn’t live without it. Well, I probably could live, it would just be more inconvenient. Having to open Gmail in a browser takes so long, it is a huge waste of time. This saves so much time, I really appreciate it. I rarely write any reviews, but this one is worth it.

Gross & spammy - They harvested my email address that I used to sign into my gmail account, and used it to sign me up to their email list!! D**k move, totally gross. The app itself looks like it was designed 6 years ago.

Good Not Great - It is great to have mail up and out of the way. Ultimately however this app just manages a browser window in a clever way, so if you are looking for something slicker than the web interface, this is not it. There are a couple of things that still need polish: * Mail does not refresh well. When I see something come in on my phone, I click on the app in my Laptop and often have to manually refresh. Not a deal breaker by any stretch, but mildly annoying. * I cannot attach a file by draga and drop * I cannot style the message (i.e. use bold face, etc) without going to the “desktop” presentation. * When I change to the desktop presentation while authoring (e.g. I realize I want to attach something) I loose the message I was in the middle of authoring. Same is true moving to mobile presentation from desktop. So this is a good app for convenience, but at the moment when you need to do any more than a quick message, it can be a bit maddening to have to open a browser window to do more.

Massive memory leaks - Prepare for your Mac’s fan to start spinning up because of this app. It’s a useful app, and I paid for the full version, but this issue definitely needs to be addressed. Otherwise you have to quit the app after you check mail, which defeats the purpose of a background app.

Exactly what I was looking for - I was looking for a simple but functional email alert to save time and attention. I have tried several different apps, but for me, this one is the best. It is the least intrusive one. You receive timely notifications without being distracted by the content. The window of the app is similar to the interface of your phone. You can delete, search, and compose emails without opening the web page. It has definitely helped me to feel less overwhelmed by emails, and it has improved my productivity. The only shortcoming is the lack of the “attachment" function. Hopefully, this can be addressed in a future version. Overall, good design.
