I have been a long time user of MailPlane. With 3.0 the developers have done an outstanding job of accommodating all the changes Google has made to GMail.

They have added the ability to remove the password from the app without storing it more...

One thing so many people miss about this app vs. other 3rd party apps. The Google Chat feature works in the app! You get notifications when someone sends you a message, etc. just as if you were in your web browser. I've not found any other apps that do this

I really want to like this app...but I see very little difference between it and other similar apps that simply open their own inherent browser windows to a Gmail account. It's the same as apps like MailTab Pro, with the exception of having a tab for the Google Calendar. Am I missing something? I'm a Gmail addict and after losing the Gmail Notifier a few days ago, I'm trying to find something else.

Hi there, I am Jessica-Customer Support for Mailplane. I haven't actually used MailTab Pro myself, so I can't say too much on their features vs ours.

Mailplane is a completely stand alone app. You see the badge and notifier (with detailed unread message list) right on your desk top. We work with the notification center. A huge plus is using Gmail OUTSIDE of the browser prevents your web surfing from being tracked, period. You don't have to log out of your accounts to be protected. (I'm not sure what it's like on their end...)

We have a bunch of plugins (Rapportive, Boomerang, Awayfind, Right Inbox and newly added Streak). You can use both Gmail and Apple shortcuts as well as define your own within our Preference menu. We have a nice 'do not disturb' feature.

I don't know about MTPro, but with Mailplane, you can sign into an unlimited amount of accounts (and Calendars) and switch quickly and easily between them.

Not to mention our customer support is top notch! ;)

We pride ourselves on quick, personal responses from myself and the developer. We truly appreciate our customers!

If you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to contact me directly.

Again, I'm Jessica. My email is support@Mailplaneapp.com.

Cheers!

Thanks for the reply, Jessica. I am definitely aware of your good support, but in all honesty, MailTab Pro has good support as well...I have a couple of their apps. Please understand I am simply doing due diligence before spending $35 (family license for me and my wife).

I only use my one Google Apps gmail account, so having multiple accounts is not a benefit, but since losing the Google Notifier, having a Google Calendar tab is a plus. Not sure it's worth the extra $33 though when I can simply add the Google Calendar to my Safari Bookmarks Bar.

Both apps work outside the browser, and with all of Gmail recent changes, such as options when right-clicking a message while still in the inbox, most of Mailplanes extra GUI buttons at the top are no longer needed. In fact, I'm still trying to figure out why "New, Reply, Forward, and Trash" (at the top of the Mailplane GUI) are even needed? These actions are very readily accessible in the existing Gmail interface.

Sincerely, if I'm missing something that could make Mailplane more beneficial than MailTab Pro or just using Gmail in Safari, please let me know. Again, I'm just trying to justify spending $35 in an ecosystem where the average price of an app is less than $5. Thanks again for replying.

I completely understand. I think you're taking advantage of the free trial by the sounds of your initial post. If not, please feel free to do so, as we offer 15 days. It'll give you a feel for our app. If you love it, fantastic, but if not, we do completely understand!

Cheers;

Jessica

Jessica, I'm trying Mailplane again and I'm quite sure I'll purchase it this time by the end of the trial period. I still stand by my comments regarding MailTab Pro, but Mailplane has many other features that I'm now discovering that make it stand out even more.

One of the biggest things for me is being able to drag and drop files into a message, just like the Gmail web app. Also, on my new 27-inch iMac the Gmail web app fonts were just too small, and unchangeable in the user interface for anything other than outgoing messages. Mailplane allows me to zoom in to view the entire Gmail interface at the font size "I want" and it stays that way unless I close Mailplane, which I only do if I reboot.

So in summary, I've changed my mind and Mailplane is now my favorite Gmail app. It's definitely a 5-star app.

I've been using this app from Version 1 beta, it was free for the longest time before I was ever charged, there have been so many update for free and now ver 3 is a master piece of ease of use. The rapottative and other selective plugins are so well thought through before being added in. Get it ! love it! Share it!

I've used Mailplane since 2011 and when I got the notice about the updated version, I couldn't wait to upgrade! The app is excellent, does everything that it says it will, and their support team never fails to reply quickly and with helpful solutions. I've never had an app on any device that I'm more happy with - and that's because this is the unique combination of a great service with customer service that cares. In a small company that's tough to deliver, and Mailplane does on all fronts.

I've relied on Mailplane 2 as my primary interface to multiple Gmail accounts for the past 4 years, on my workhorse MacBook Pro (which is still running OS X 10.6). In recent times, it does crash more than it used to.

I use Mailplane 3 only sporadically on another MacBook Pro (running OS X 10.8). So my ratings are really about Mailplane 2.

I'm pleased by Uncomplex's tech support via email.

Count me among the many 2.x users who have been left cold by the 3.x update. I've defended Mailplane and it's pricing in the past on places such as this, but now my own experience with 3.0 also seems to be that it doesn't offer much in the way of anything significantly new.

Today, my existing 2.5.x install of Mailplane is locked out of Gmail due to an endless login loop, and I don't think I can expect a fix anytime soon. I sadly don't have much inclination to upgrade, especially with them discontinuing 2.x development.

Uncomplex says "we’re working on an update for Mailplane 2", meanwhile offers these workarounds:

A temporary fix is to click "Load basic HTML (for slow connections" in the bottom right corner of every login page.

There are still many of us using Mailplane on computers running an OS below 10.7, so hopefully the developer will figure out a better solution.

I find Mailplane to be a great desktop app. It allows me to quickly see my unread mail and switch accounts easily, which is great for productivity.

The updates have really tackled the initial issues and the app runs flawlessly for me now.

Highly recommended.

Really disappointed with this release. In many regards, such as with the drawer, 2.x was superior. Not going to be going for this version.

Looking like Mailplane isn't going to take constructive criticism this round. Well I'm glad to see some good competition coming now for them that looks like it will be eliminating this issue.

I have been a long time user of MailPlane. With 3.0 the developers have done an outstanding job of accommodating all the changes Google has made to GMail.

They have added the ability to remove the password from the app without storing it in Keychain. For those that use 1Password this is a tremendous benefit. They made jumping to the top and bottom of the compose window brain-dead easy (cmd-up arrow/cmd-down arrow). Finally, the developers are very responsive to ideas and feature requests. I have been very pleased with all aspects of MailPlane 3.0.

The app is far more than simply Fluid-like standalone browser window with numerous small attention to details Safari can't match.

Version 3.0 crashes if I don't re-dimension a jpeg before adding it to a mail even if it is less than 10m. When I send a mail using my web browser the cursor jumps to the mail part of the mail before I get a chance to add the recipients name. Other than these two small annoyances a great piece of software for Gmail.
