This is an app that has potential but still a ways to go before it's ready to dethrone Google Notifier. There are some nice things about this app, such as the fact that it allows you to choose how often to check for new mail. For some people this might not be a big deal but it's still nice to have the option. It also looks rather nice and seems pretty stable. There are also a few small flaws though. First and foremost is the lack of Growl support. Just by adding Growl support this app would already be every bit as good as Google Notifier and it's something the developer has stated he plans to implement soon, which is great. Another issue is a small one but still very annoying, you can't copy and paste in passwords. For most people this probably isn't a problem. But if you're like me and use 1Password then you have a randomly generated 18 character alpha-numeric password with a symbol or two thrown in. This is not fun to type out... Copy and paste would be much appreciated. The final issue is more of a request as it's something that even Google's own Notifier does not have. I would like the ability to check multiple accounts. As a web designer I have a few Google accounts since I use DreamHost and they host their web mail with Google. Because of this I have a few accounts. Right now I have them all feeding into one main account but I would definitely prefer having them all separate if the option was given. Needless to say I'll be keeping a close eye on this app and very much look forward to the next version. If it has Growl then I'm in. If it has support for multiple accounts all the better.

This would be the perfect notifier to replace the Google Notifier that will die on Jan 31, 2014 except for one problem. If installed for multiple users, the menu bar icon turns red and has the new message count badge for only the first user. When you add a second user, the app functions fine, but the icon doesn't alert the second user to new messages. This problem occurs when the first user logs out and the second user logs in.

I've tried just about every other Gmail notification system out there, and I always go back to this one. It's clean, it's simple, and does exactly what I need. Best of all? It's open source, on GitHub, even! Mountain Lion Notification Center support is minimal, but even with some basic integration this would blow every other paid and buggy app out there away!

Same problem as with the first Lion test version - combining all counts and subject lines from each account into every of them. For example - when I have 3 unread emails in account 1 and none in the other 6 accounts the Notifr shows the total count of 21 unread messages and shows subject lines of all 3 unread messages from account 1 in every of the other 6 accounts. So, I completely removed Notifr from my system (including all preference files) and did the clean install of Notifr 0.6 - now I can only setup 2 accounts in the Notifr, I can't add any more accounts. And the count is 6 unread messages (while in reality there are only 3 unread messages in account 1 and none in account 2) and all 3 subject lines from account 1 show up in account 2 as well.

Since you give the app your login credentials to check for new mail in all accounts, which the app does just fine, is it possible that when you select "Go To Inbox" that the app can automatically log you into the correct account? It did take me right into the inbox of the first selected account, but when i closed that out and wanted to go into my other account, it reopened the first account. So I logged out of the first account in the browser and decided to try it that way, but then it just brings me to the gmail login page and I would have to manually enter my credentials for the 2nd account. Am I doing something wrong here or is this just a limitation of this app? It would be perfect if it could do this, as the official app has this ability.

WOW! the new icon is astonishing, amazing, gorgeous! looks great .. a futuristic 2009 icon that I liked so much! The application is better than ever. Less memory, less threats again ... check updates, numbers of inbox .. all of sudden the best notifier. I strongly recommend instead any other. Easy 5 stars.

**********!!!! I just downloaded and installed v 0.4.1. Wow! James Chan is to be congratulated. This is great. It works perfectly. On a side note, I wrote a review the other day and gave 0.3.5 six stars out of five and v 0.4 just one star. Mr. Chan and I have corresponded, and I have told him my difficulties and he has been very generous with his time to try and resolve this. I hope that has been helpful to him because this works great. This gets 10 stars out of five.

This app was working fabulously until the menubar icon was changed. I have four gmail accounts, and I could use this to monitor all of them. Once the menubar icon changed, all the app does now is generate a spinning beach ball. I emailed the developer several days ago but haven't heard anything back. I would give v 0.35 six stars out of five and one star for v 0.4--it gets one star for not crashing my system and I can shut it down with Activity Monitor. If someone still has a copy of v 0.35 please send a copy to dfwrites@gmail.com. Thank you.

'Reply' Thanks a lot the Dev answer. I really appreciated. I agree all with you. And also I am sure you are doing a great job. I would never use the Google Notifier because I refuse to use their's daemons. You are doing a great improvement programming in Ruby! Update is a good option to be there, and the icon is amazing. I can not image what else you could improve, but let's see, I am sure your mind is ahead! keep going ...

Sorry, but for the first time I have to say that the previous version (0.3.5) was better than the actual (0.4). The former doesn't have update but: it is lesser (400KB x 1700KB), uses less RAM memory (11MB x 17MB), and less system threats (1 x 5). What's happening?! I am back to 0.3.5 But thanks a lot, I love this program and the new icon. It's really Leopard and cool with the others (system icons!).

I have switched to this application as the "official" Gmail Notifier does not always bring me to my in box but to an error message lately.I really can't understand why any of the ignorant a-holes gave me minus marks when I made an honest mistake taking Gmail Notifier for Gmailnotifr. There are a lot of unpleasant people lurking around waiting for just such a common error for them to criticize. I guess they think they are without fault.,

I put the previous version back as this version does not have the Google Calendar incorporated within it.The Calendar in the menu bar is useful and you probably can get it anyway at the Google Calendar web site but I like the style of the previous one vs this version.

Having used Gmail Notifr for a few days, I thought I'd return and give it a more objective review (as promised) now that it's working for me. First up, I'd like to give kudos to the developer, James. There was a problem with 0.3.0 in saving usernames, and he worked quickly and non-stop until he'd resolved the problem. Top marks!! I haven't tested this for multiple users, I only have my single account to monitor, but it did that without any problems at all. The ability to adjust the polling of the Gmail server is a nice feature. There are a few things missing that the Google Notifier does that Gmail Notifr doesn't. A "Compose Message" menu item would be useful. I think the message list could possibly be expanded on too. Google Notifier, for example, displays a tooltip with the beginning of the message in it. I find this very useful. One or two people have commented on the memory usage of the 'official' google notifier, however, I've had both running side by side for a few days and Activity Monitor is telling me that Gmail Notifr is using a little more (19.52 MB) than the Google Notifier (16.87 MB). Gmail Notifr does what it is meant to do, well, and with a very responsive, and nice, developer to boot. However, in my situation, I have decided to stick with the Google Notifier because I don't need multiple account checking and I also like to have the list of events from my Google Calendar. I use Busy Sync to synchronise my Google Calendar to iCal, but I'm yet to find a nice solution to listing events and emails nicely as the Google Notifier does. I wish the developer all the best with this project, and I will certainly be keeping an eye on it.

Username problem is now fixed, but three things still annoy me: 1. The menu bar envelope is very difficult to see...it needs more definition, or perhaps several icon options from which the user can choose. 2. Growl notification only offers the inherent Mac sounds...let folks choose the notification sound from anywhere on their computer. 3. I still have to keep the Google Notifier installed for menu bar access to the Google Calendar. I'm sure this will evolve into a good utility because it lets you do some things the official Google Notifier doesn't, like multiple accounts and selectable time intervals for checking email.

I have not used this program prior to version 0.3.0, so I have no preferences or accounts previously set for this program. How on earth do I add an account?!?!?!?!? No matter what I do, my username and password are not stored, all I ever get is a username of 'username'. Is there some jiggerypokery needed here, or is this a bug introduced in 0.3.0 for new users of Gmail Notifr? I'll review my rating once I manage to actually use the program :^)

This is an amendment to my previous review. OK, so it's been a bit over a month since I originally tried this app out on October 30th and a lot has changed! Everything that Google's Notifier can do Gmail Notifr can do. What's more, it tends to do it better by actually checking as regularly as you tell it to and allowing you to customize how it tells you of new messages. It now has full Growl support and no longer alerts you of the same new messages. The only thing I requested — which was rather an off-hand request — that hasn't been implemented is support for multiple accounts. But, you know what? Google's Notifier doesn't even do that so I in no way count it against Notifr. This is a great little app. Without a doubt I think it should be used instead of Google's own app. This one is more responsive and more customizable. Well done to the developer! I've fully switched now and highly recommend you get this app. It has a very responsive developer who quickly adds features his users request. What more could anyone possibly ask?

Love it. It would replace that God-awful GMail Notifier if it had Growl support. Also, is there any way to set what browser it uses to open your inbox? For instance, I use a Fluid SSB, and I would love it to open my inbox in the SSB rather than my default browser.
