Gmail Notifier for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Those who use Gmail as their primary e-mail application might like to see notifications of incoming e-mails in their system tray without needing to check online. Gmail Notifier for Mac allows users to see and preview new mail messages, as well as their Google Calendars, in a simple application.

After quickly downloading Gmail Notifier for Mac via a high-speed connection, the program installed into the applications folder easily, although acceptance of a user agreement was required. At startup, the program prompts the user to enter a Gmail address and password, which immediately begins synching Google's e-mail and calendar applications. There is no interface to the program, but icons show up in the top tool bar when there is a new e-mail message or upcoming calendar appointment. These are easy to identify and are well designed. When new mail comes in, a small window pops up showing the sender, title, and a preview of the contents. All of these features work well, despite the fact that the application does not install any separate mail client program.

Gmail Notifier for Mac works well and adds some useful features for Google mail and calendar management. This application is suitable for users who use Gmail as their main e-mail account.

    "Awesome"

    July 3, 2010  |   By pturzio

    Version: Gmail Notifier 1.10.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Great little app that saves lots of time. Works perfectly on 10.6.4. Cool little fade effect is a nice touch too.

    "Great app if you are tired of Apple Mail"

    October 21, 2009  |   By whodat925

    Version: Gmail Notifier 1.8.2

    Pros

    Lightweight program,
    Very customizable (you can change what mail app opens when you reply),
    Easy to see if you have mail.

    Cons

    It came with a Google calendar toolbar application which I did not want. It was easy to remove, however.

    Summary

    This tiny application gets the job done, and stays out of your way when you don't need it. Lots of great features, such as; the toolbar icon is black and white until you get mail. Unobtrusive pop up and sound when you get an email to your inbox.

    Great app if you just want to use gmail, not Apple Mail, or thunderbird and deal with compatibility problems.
