its very nice app keep it up ……

Gmail app

Been a user for 8 years. Nice.

So far so good

Was looking for desktop launcher for my gmail and found this. Have not had very long but appears to work well. So far so good..


Love the notification when a new email comes through. Easy to access all 3 of my gmail accounts.

Perfect except for one minor detail

This is the perfect gmail app. The interface looks just like my mail when I open it in the browser. The only issue that I have with it is that I have to sign out when switching between my regular gmail and my business one. To be honest I have 4 gmail emails that I use on the regular fo different things, and not being able to switch between them the way I do in the browser is a bit of a pain. Other that that it’s exactly what I need.

Its ok

Its not a bad app but iwaish you could do more

Still new to it, but so far, so good

After the Mail app quit working on the desktop, I started using this app. It has worked well and is easy to use. It opens and performs as if I was using the browser.

great app

Very easy to use

Cool stuff

It appears to be an exact clone of the gmail interface, meaning it’s a web browser that only goes to gmail. Easy for the developer to build, but the advantage is in avoiding distractions, not having all those tabs next your gmail, or your bookmarks. Have not looked into if there’s any offline functionality, but I most likely don’t need it.


Started yesterday. So far, so good.

Works Like I’d Expect

After opening this app, the page layout looks and works just like it does when you login at gmail’s web site. This app is nice, because it’s a bit quicker getting to your inbox.

it’s great...

However, I’d like the option of toggling between accounts within the app, rather than getting redirected to my browser.


I like because I don’t have to keep log in into chrome account just to check my gmail email


While for a time I used apple mail it has lost its purpuse due to connection issues with Gmail I have tried to find solutions and at a time they worked but eventually bought back the same issue. This app is doing exactly what I need checking my emails and working especially when I am trying to send an email to someone the most basic email use that some how is not working for apple mail something that should simply be an easy function and if anything an update for apple mail is long overdue to resolve it. For now this app is my best friend until Lavabit releases Volcano mail there free mail app.

Nicely Done

I like the app alot. Its basically identical to the web version without opening the web. 👍🏽👌🏽

So far really great!

I have just worked with this app for the evening and so far love it! Time will tell if it continues to meet my expectations but I am hopeful. It’s so much easier to just have your email at your fingertips! Thanks for developing a great product.

Super perfundo on the early eve of your day.

Have not used app long. Seemingly not bad app.

Thus far its good

I use my gmail for work that is on my Mac. I loved it for a bit but as of late it has constantly given me an error message when opening attachments but once the error message is cleared the document is there. I am sure its a bug that will be addressed. Otherwise I love the app.

Simple tool that works

Program is simple and appears just like the browser version would. Exactly what I needed.

Basic functions work well; notification and link issues

The app looks and works very much like the web interface. I have found two drawbacks: 1) Clicking notification banners does not open the app. 2) Clicking on links or attachments in emails just opens a blank tab in Chrome (my default browser).

Cannot have multiple accounts

Well designed app that works, except for the fact that you cannot have multiple gmail accounts on the app. Unusable for my needs.

Thanks for doing it so well

It really respects the Gmail interface so you won’t feel like you’re using a wonky 3rd party app—kudos. A really spot-on solution if you were looking for a Google-made desktop version. It also works superbly with customized G Suite Gmail, as it shows my logo and can respond from alias addresses just as on Gmail. All it needs now is the same solution for the rest of G Suite, but there is a familiar link to all the online apps right where you’d expect.

Happy Thus Far!

Just downloaded this app and am about 54.25 seconds into using it. So far it looks just like the online version of gmail and I am happy to say that I have not had any issues with it. I will update if I have any issues or amplifying positive feedback.

I like it. Hey Mikey!

Easy Peasy. Works well.

Seems ok but doesnt follow Gmail rules

The app seems like a nice idea, but it seems to ignore some built in gmail settings. For example, I don’t want an email to be automatically marked as read. In the browser version, I can read an email and it will stay unread until I delete it or label it, it’s the method of keeping an inbox clean.

Works great on me

I hate to run Chrome on background when I am not using it, it could take tons of memory. Thanks to this app, I can focus on my work without missing my mail.

Piece of Cake!

No issues - everything works great!!



Font/Sizing options too large

There’s no way to zoom out, and the smallest option for font is still too large. Would really appreciate more options.


It works and serves the purpose it was design for no complaints.

Decent GMail wrapper but eliminates 3rd party Gmail tool support.

Over all, this is a nice wrapper but unfortunetly it has one major drawback; 3rd party browser extentions are not supported. Common tools like Grammarly, DropBox for Gmail, 1Password, that work with Gmail in Chrome and/or Safari extentions are missing.

Multiple accounts

It’s kind of pointless since I regularly use 4 email accounts and this only supports logging into one.

Good App

It does what it’s supposed to

Finally a good app for Gmail

I love this app. It has the same look as gmail on a browser and works with notifications and everything. Just what I was looking for. I love this app.


Its very good but can you eventually make it so that you can customize badges? Ie: So it only shows the number of emails in primary inbox rather than the total which includes emails in social and promotions? Unless Ive missed something of course!

Solid App

Makes checking my email easier. Not that much to it…


This is the best gmail app i have discovered. I have been using it to keep in touch with my teachers, and its super convenient!

Multiple Accounts ??

Is there a bug or is the feature to activate multiple accounts not ready yet? Each time I tried to add new account, it opened a new browser to add the account, but not in the app it self.

Provides what I needed

Provides exactly what I was looking for. Gmail as a desktop app on a mac. Supports badge counts and notification center. I’m good to go!

So Far, So Good

I downloaded this app a few days ago, and am still learning what it does or does not do. So far, it seems to do all that the full website does. No complaints at this point. I have no complaints, but cannot give five stars to something that I have not had long enough to really try out.

Great concept but Flawed

After a full day of trying to use the program I have some issues. — I ran into the same issue as user gumatt06 where you cannot open or move an attanment without it opening a page in your internet browser. So you click here, click there, then click here, just to open and view it. Kind of a pain. There needs to be a preview window or something. — In the compact mode, which is why I got the application, you cannot delete the emails. You can click on the box next to the email, then a window apprears in the menu bar with a trash can icon, but when you click on it…Nothing happens. I was looking for an application that is simple - just like the G-mail app on my phone - that I could have on my Mac Desktop. But I still need all the simple features … Read, Compose, Move, Delete, View attachments. Without these simple features, the application is useless to me. I would rather just have gmail open in my internet browser.

Just got the app - nothing wrong yet.

Everything look just like it does on Gmail, and the notifications come in SUPER quick. You can customise plenty of things (text size, notifications, opacity, etc), which can make it better for just desktop use. If I close the app, it doesn’t quit and I still get notifications, and they don’t bother my constantly. So far so good. Didn’t see any complaints about bugs (I don’t think there are as many users), and I haven’t encountered any. For those who have a lot of emails and whatnot (even if you get only your subscribed emails), I would recommend this app!

I like the app, but can use it b/c I can’t attach or download attachments

The application looks great, and works almost identical to Gmail. I would love to use it rather and have a chrome tab open all day. However, there are two problems I have with it: 1) Not so critical: I can’t figure how how to have two gmail accounts open simultaneously. I have personal and work gmail open all day, and having them both in DeskMail would be great 2) Critical: I can’t seem to download attachments in received emails, or upload attachments to outgoing emails.
