A must have app

27/01/2017

Of course this app comes standard with Android phones, but even if it didn't it would be the first thing I downloaded. Email is a necessity in today's age, and Gmail is the best and most convenient option out there. This app allows you to quickly and easily check, manage, and compose mail.

Pros

UI is great and easy to use Fast and responsive Lightweight Good notifications can be managed from the notifications bar

Cons

None really, it's Gmail. Maybe some UI customization?

Gmail for the small business

16/12/2016

I have been using Gmail for business and personal use for years. I really do believe that this email is great and the most flexible email program. The filters and labels make managing my inbox much easier. The calendar make keeping my schedule easy. I also like the integration on Apple devices so I can have my email with me at all times.

Pros

Gmail is very easy to use and With the flexible options and addons, it is great.

Cons

When emails with the same subject line come in, they get grouped into what looks like a large thread. Sometimes that makes finding the email that you need a little difficult.

Email and more

29/09/2016

I initially started using Gmail as an alternative to my other email address which was getting spammed to death! I simply wanted an email with a different domain for other types of accounts that require you to sign up with an email address. Once I began using Gmail and realized how easy it was to use and how powerful the span filter was I realized it was by far the best email system I had used.

Pros

Ease of use, free additional tools like Google Docs, Google Maps, Google Drive.

Cons

The GUI is not flashy or graphically pleasing. It looks a little flat. You cannot save Docs and attach them to emails, you have to set up a share account.

The best emailing solution

22/09/2016

I am a user who moved to Gmail from outlook. Since Gmail have honestly made things easier for me. I was an outlook user a few years back, but the Microsoft was too colorful and not very easy in understanding. I moved all my important accounts, mailings, and everything to Gmail then. There are lesser risks of hacking the Gmail. Gmail is safer than yahoo or hotmail, I belive. You can share documents, or files, or images. Moreover, temporary storage up to 15 GB is available too here. The first thing I do every morning is to check my mail. One more feature I like the most is the trash one, It itself filters all the trashy emails. Moreover, due to the introduction of hangouts, It is easier for a user to know when the other person is only and they can have instant chat. Well, an app worth using.

Pros

Easy to navigate and use since it is too simple.

Cons

the option "flag" is not available, important emails can not be highlighted.

There is just so much that it can work with, it takes some time to figure it all out.

Favourite email application

25/06/2016

Been using Gmail for private and business use for years, and highly rate it as being the most flexible email program. The use of filters and labels make managing a busy inbox, or multiple inboxes far easier. The easy integration on Apple devices is a bonus.

Pros

Flexible options without being complicated. Open to various addons like Strike which's great for templated/automated emails Support is fantastic - thorough, fast and well communicated.

Cons

Initial Gmail for Business setup requires a certain degree of domain/IT knowledge Getting hold of support isn't the most streamlined process (although it's fantastic when you get through)

Simple to use, yet very comprehensive

31/05/2016

I started using Gmail a year ago as it was the default in my new job. Having only ever used Outlook in the past, I was amazed and daunted at the same time by its functionality. Initially confusing, once mastered it has been an amazing tool. LOVE the attachment reminder and "unsend" features. Wouldn't use anything else now.

Pros

Gmail has a powerful search function - I can always find emails that I'm looking for even if they date back a long way. The ability to "unsend" sent emails has been a godsend on a number of occasions. If you mention an attachment in your email and hit send without attaching anything, you get a pop-up asking if you meant to.

Cons

Emails with the same subject line get grouped into what looks like one thread, which had me very confused for a while. "Settings" aren't very simple to edit.

Efficient, Easy, and Great Search Tools

19/05/2016

Gmail is wonderful. Super easy to use, and I have even seen companies that have moved away from using Outlook because Gmail is simple, fast, and has great search tools. I use it for personal email, but have also seen it implemented successfully in professional environments.

Pros

The search tool is a huge pro. Users can perform easy, but effective searches. Any message I need is readily available through a search, and so I can archive messages with confidence because I'll be able to find them again. I really like how Gmail organizes emails received, which makes it easy to categorize and manage email. The Google Alerts work great with Gmail too - receiving new information on topics (or companies ) of interest keep me informed on a daily or weekly basis. It is user friendly, and the app is fantastic.

Cons

I really can't think of any. At first, Gmail has a slight learning curve, but once a user learns the functions, Gmail is a breeze.
