The app now more closely resembles Inbox by Gmail and Gmail for Android with a Material Design makeover, including an all-new pop-out side menu with a splash of color. Meanwhile, the new features should result in a faster experience for iPhone users.

I wish they'd just bring back push compatibility. I don't want multiple email clients on my phone.

Much better performance and sleek look ... now my Google Inbox and GMail app look like they're related.

I'm not saying iOS mail app is perfect but i just don't get google doing an app for iOS and then making it worse than the stock option. So many missing things.

Arrrgh it kills me that not only can you still not swipe from the left to pull up your folder list, now doing so accidentally archives some e-mail.

Good to see that Google is still completely ignoring iOS design guidelines. At least now I don't have to bother to try out the new version.

I wish you could swipe left to delete/right to archive (or vice versa). Unfortunately it's a one-or-the-other setting. :(

I never understood this. I asked the Gmail Inbox team about an option to do both and they said they consciously want one or the other. Makes no sense at all.

Can I have it NOT arrange my emails by thread in the new version? I hate when I have to view by thread and this was the reason I switched away from the gmail app

Just tried it, and deleted it again. If I can't swipe in your menu from the left I'm not going to use your app on a 5.5" phone.
