What do you like about the new version?
It makes me want to buy an email client, which is probably good for me in the long run, as it will insulate me from unnecessary (web) application UX changes.
The New Look Gmail has also convinced me that using cloud based services is not for me. There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY I can be assured of a consistent user interface in the services I might come to depend on.
What, if anything, would you change about the new version?
Please, please, please give users the option to stay with the “old” look, permanently.
Please take seriously the platitude “If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”.
Caveat – I understand that there are a set of problems that Google has been trying to solve with the new look.
However, I have not suffered from any of those problems.
Furthermore, Google’s attempts to address these issues has lead to a considerably worse User Experience than I have come to expect from Gmail.
