Editors' Review

by   / May 05, 2013

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.
