Sent: A better Gmail client than Google’s own Gmail app

by Zaib Ali on November 25, 2011

Google disappointed everyone with their official Gmail client for iOS. The app first had notification issues and because of that it was pulled from the App Store, later it returned but was not able to please the customers who were eagerly waiting for it for the last few years. Google’s Gmail app for iOS was not able to please the customers as it had very limited functionality and offered nothing more than what was already available in iOS’s native email app.

But if you still want to use a dedicated client for your Gmail mail box and are not cool with Google’s own adventure with the Gmail app, you can give Sent app a try. Available in the App Store for arguably high price of $4.99, Sent app promises to bring the simple native Gmail experience to users they have always dreamed of.

Sent app may be good and simple, but it also lacks several important features that can be a deal breaker for some of you. Sent app does not support Push Notifications, yet. iPad is also not supported at this time. Developer has promised that he will be adding these features in the near future.

  • Conversation view
  • Multiple email accounts
  • Gmail search
  • Ability to attach photos
  • Fast
  • Simple and elegant

  • No push notifications
  • No iPad support
  • High Price
  • Gmail only

Sent is a nice app to have if Gmail is your primary email service and you just hate iOS’s built-in mail app. Although it is better than Google’s own Gmail app (available for free) it has a long way to go to become the best Gmail client ever on iOS. We really hope that the developer would add new features (especially the ability to add non-Gmail accounts) and further polish the current one’s.

These rating are based on current app features. The points might increase when further features are added to this application in future updates.

You can download Sent app for your iPhone or iPod touch from the App Store for $4.99 here
