Fluid and works

Works most of the time and acts stable. Would love to see the notifications thing work consistently and perhaps add calendar feature within, I know its much but always good to ask. --- Update 8/19/2015: Is not responding anymore.

Very Good before Win 10; Please Update!

Like the ability to set and remove labels in Gmail. Also allows one to manage multiple Gmail accounts. Since windows 10 upgrade has limited functionality; folders don't refresh, have to go into options just to get the screen to display. No response from developer after two requests.

Love it

Best email app out there. Would like to see a bit more of my email on the right pane on my Surface, but aside from that, and sometimes not being able to sign in, it has the best interface out there.

Doesn't work in 10

Crashes on open. Even on the rare occasion when it doesn't, it crashes as soon as I click the "hamburger" menu or, if it gets there, it crashes when I click settings. I have never gotten any further. I had wanted to use MetroMail on my laptop running Win10 since I'm happy with it on my Win8.1 tablet, but it doesn't work at all at the moment. I am downgrading the rating to 4 for its still excellent functionality on Win8.1, but since it won't run on my laptop, it loses a star. I will revisit the app in a few weeks and see if it's improved. Once I upgrade my tab to Win10, if it doesn't work, it'll be 1 star. Previous review on 8.1: Easily accesses all my Gmail accounts, including those with their own domain names. It recognizes Gmail's different inboxes, as well as sorting by label. Once I figured out how to change the default color scheme from eye-popping red to my own preferred color, I was very happy. Now if I could only figure out how to purchase the app, I'd be even happier!

Was 5* now doesn't run at all. Uninstall and reinstall dies not work. This is the only mail app that supports Gmail Labels. Please fix. This is a very good mail client. My favorite, labeling works and looks great. Thanks developer.

It retains most of the functionality of Gmail. - Easy to add accounts, even those with 2-step verification. - The Social and Promotion folders work (unlike in TouchMail). That's the good. The bad - There's this choppy work around to prevent Social/Promotion emails from adding to notifications. It's too much hassle so I just disabled notifications. - There's no way to customize the look of different accounts. Adding the account icon in the corner, allowing for different background colors. Both would really help in easily differentiating between multiple accounts.

Can sometimes be show or buggy, but this is a minor thing compared to how great the app is.

Definitely the best Gmail client I have found for window phone, but after last update it forgot my logins and won't let me reset it. Please fix, a 5star app otherwise!

App used to work great, upgraded phone and after installing the app just sits at "One moment please" when trying to configure email. Please fix.

It doesn't work!

As soon as I finished downloading Windows 10 I decided to check out the store and look for a email app and saw that this one was exactly what I was looking for, however it won't let me get past the login! I'm waiting for an update to fix this until I try it again, but until then it's total garbo to me
