The Mac App Store is filled with all kinds of Gmail desktop clients. Even though you can use any standard e-mail client like Apple’s Mail or Microsoft’s Outlook, and set them up for Gmail use, these little applications aim to bring you an iOS e-mail experience. Plus, they usually cost only a few dollars, and some of them are really helpful and a real time-savers.
