As a fully-functional Gmail client for Mac, this application adds a lot more convenience and features to the popular online e-mail service. MailPlane for Mac lets you easily access your Gmail account right from your desktop, with a lot more features packed into it.

MailPlane for Mac comes with a free 15-day trial. The full version is available for $24.95 and there's also a Family License available for $39.95. The installation is very straightforward. Once you launch the app, you'll be greeted by an extremely familiar and intuitive user interface. Unlike most mail clients available on the App Store, MailPlane offers a dedicated Web browser for Gmail; therefore, the user interface is just like the one you're used to. This app is fully packed with features, too. It allows you to set up more than one Gmail account, which you can access all at the same time--something the normal browser wouldn't allow you to do. Other than that, there's a lot of well-thought-out features such as a mail notifier on your menu bar, a custom folder for all the downloaded attachments, and more. If there's a downside, aside from the price, it's that the app will only work with Gmail. We'd love to have this type of tool for all of our Web-based e-mail accounts.

MailPlane for Mac offers the same functionality as Gmail. It is a really easy-to-use application. While it's not free, it's definitely worth the money if you use Gmail on a regular basis.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mailplane for Mac 3.0.

Developer's Description

Acting as a site specific web browser for Google's Gmail, Mailplane is a full fledged Mail client for the Desktop. It fully integrates the Gmail web interface into the Mac experience, offering you the best of both worlds. And since Mailplane doesn't change the way Gmail works, its unique features can still be enjoyed, including conversations, labels, global access, endless storage, spam protection, and the ever fast and powerful Google search.

Mailplane supports multiple Gmail and Google Apps accounts; the app allows you to easily switch between accounts without the need to sign in/sign out from the Gmail accounts. With full iLife integration, you can also browse and attach files from your iPhoto and iTunes libraries too. Downloads can be directly imported into iPhoto as well. The integrated screenshot tool lets you capture and attach a window, screen or region. You can Drag and Drop files and images on the dock application icon, or any Mailplane window to create and upload attachments. And with automatic photo optimization, image attachments can be converted and resized to make the message even smaller. Mailplane can play a user defined sound, as well as show the number of unread messages in the application icon, account drawer and status menu item. As Mailplane monitors all Gmail accounts, unread message counters and message subjects are displayed for each account.
