  1. Update: Gmail's iOS app went live tonight, but was later pulled due to a bug with notifications. It's likely to come back sometime tomorrow.

    Love the new look. I just wish Google Reader would get the same attention
  3. Must admit I really like it too. Clean, fast, modern and elegant. Nice work Goog. Now if you can just fix your lousy Google Apps shared contacts (or lack thereof).
  4. I love it!

    Still looks rigged and lacks customization besides the theme and size. I would like an Outlook clone, basically.
  6. I don't understand how people like the new look, the new look is absolutely horrible, it's a mash, there is no contrast between elements. If I open a conversation it's really hard to find the last message of the conversation...buttons colors are the same as messages titles, replay box is almost as the background....really really horrible !!

    Google Reader got a remake earlier this week!
  8. i totally agree there is no spacing and no difference between any icon..I hat it
  9. Yeah.. its just bad.. Google has this recent trend of making unnecessary changes lately and this is one. If you look at the list of changes only two are functional changes, "smarter navigation" and "better search". That's cool and all, but who had trouble searching or navigating Gmail before? Never was a problem for me. Besides the navigation is exactly the same besides moving the stupid chat box up and down. Search function isn't new.. There was always advanced search.
    So it basically comes down to this: Google thinks this new look is cool, but it's really not. And to appease some people, they added what they call "new functions" to Gmail.
  10. Google's new look is horrible; it is not intuitive, nor is it friendly; I hate the push technology where the company does not give the user a choice; I used their services based on what they had offered when I joined because I liked it...
  11. The new Gmail look is very hard on the eyes. Also the old one is easier to navigate. Bad decision Google!
     
  12. Completely Agree!
  13. new look is ugly!!!
