The Gmail app gives users control of their email accounts while on the go. Gmail is a powerful email app with countless features and compatibility with most email services. For that reason, an Android device owner can utilize the app to send, receive, and manage all of their emails. Google's email app includes plenty of management and oversight features to control spam and ensure that important emails remain at the forefront as well.

Every user receives 15GB of free cloud storage for their emails and messages. Therefore, messages can be saved rather than frantically deleted to free up space. Emails are listed in a clean and intuitive manner. Users can view emails from specific accounts, or all of their accounts, depending upon current needs. While using the app, users will become accustomed to the clean and simple user interface.

Gmail supports virtually any email client, so users never miss an email from one of their accounts. A powerful spam blocker prevents pesky emails from reaching an inbox in the first place, too. On top of that, social and promotional emails are grouped together, which makes mass deleting less important emails easier than ever before. Plenty of other features power Google's premier email app, and more features are added regularly.

Millions upon millions of Android device owners utilize Gmail. It's often the preferred email app for mobile devices today. For most users, the app runs well and doesn't suffer from noticeable issues. Some users have reported random crashing and related bugs, but this doesn't seem to be a widespread problem. Gmail is an incredible option for sending and receiving as well as managing emails from a smartphone or tablet.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CALENDAR: Allows an application to read the user's calendar data.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • WRITE_CALENDAR: Allows an application to write the user's calendar data.
  • WRITE_CONTACTS: Allows an application to write the user's contacts data.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • NFC: Allows applications to perform I/O operations over NFC.
  • READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings.
  • READ_SYNC_STATS: Allows applications to read the sync stats.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • WRITE_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to write the sync settings.
