"Works Great, Looks Terrible..."

July 01, 2008  |  By StuckGamer

 |  Version: GmailStatus 1.1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I love everything about this app except how awful it makes my menu bar look. Please move the number up a few pixels (to center) and give me the option of making the background the same gradient as my (non-translucent) menu bar. Please! Then it will be perfect.

"Works again!"

November 25, 2007  |  By lordfunk

 |  Version: GmailStatus 1.1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
1.1.0 works perfectly again in Tiger and Leopard. SO glad to have it back - I can't live without my Hotkey for the inbox. Pound for pound the best Gmail notifier there is.

The background color DESPERATELY needs the option to be transparent, though. It looks awful in Leopard's semi-transparent menu bar.

"Works flawlessly"

April 10, 2006  |  By schumi

 |  Version: GmailStatus 1.0.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is still my favorite Gmail tool. I love the hotkey feature. It would be nice if the next version could display the message subjects, but other than that this is a great timesaver. P.S: If version 1.0.7 does not work for use the previous one (1.0.6)

"Ap can halt use of your computer"

February 09, 2006  |  By J.G.

 |  Version: GmailStatus 1.0.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

Warning: GmailStatus can turn into a nighmare. I used the application without problems for a month or so. Then, Tuesday, I got a message saying an update was available. I gave permission for the update to be installed. Afterward, a window kept popping up asking to access my keychain. Whether I said yes or no, the message window still popped up every five or ten minutes. It interrupted anything I was doing, including trying to watch a DVD and browsing the Web. Eventually, the GmailStatus window grabbed the foremost position on the screen and prevented me from doing anything else at all. There was no getting behind it to access the Finder for a forced quit, so I had to shut down and restart with extensions off. I deleted GmailStatus afterward.

I realize the application has a perfect rating. But, that can be misleading. Ofen, disgusted people don't go through the hassle of posting a complaint. I had to rejoin Version Tracker (couldn't recall my old password) just to do this. I consider the inconvenience worth it to save other people the nightmare I experienced with GmailStatus.

"...and now it works again!"

Wow that was fast. The problem (on Google's side) was addressed, and it's back to being the perfect Gmail notifier it is. The hotkey alone is something I can't live without in other programs.

Really cool update but it would be even better to have the growl new mail pop up notifications with the "from & subject".....hope to see that someday :)

"this is the bomb!"

perfect little add-on for gmail. Works great, never any trouble. I love the gmail webinterface and the only reason to go back to a pop mail client would be if this didn't exist.

thank you!

"Please...New Icon"

October 25, 2004  |  By T A Z M A N

 |  Version: GmailStatus 0.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Program works fantastic! Menubar icon is ugly, How about an icon like gCount. gCount looks great but has problems checking email a lot of the time. GmailStatus works great, but the menu icon needs help. Free is free and I appreciate the your efforts.

Summary

It's simple and does exactly what I want! I agree that support for multiple accounts would be a big plus, but since I don't have a second account yet, it doesn't matter for now.
