- (2014-07-10) 謝永昌: 如果可以設定檢查信件的頻率就完美了！
- (2014-03-12) Jamie Morris: I really like the look of this. As simple as you can get but it just works! However, PLEASE add multi account support. I can't use it until it supports my two accounts - it's too confusing not knowing which account it refers to ;-)
- (2014-02-17) Shahidullah Raihan: It does not notify me
- (2014-01-14) Moo Scree: Needs some clarification: I assume this doesn't check all labels, so does this check All Mail or only the main Inbox? Update: This does check only the main Inbox.

- (2013-06-01) Manuel Reis: My Google Chrome theme is black, so I can't see the icon.. Is there any way to change its color? Also, the extension only seems to notify new messages in the "Inbox" marker, while messages in other markers aren't checked... Other than that, great app!!
- (2013-05-30) Alberto Gonçalves: Nice app, congratz
- (2013-05-30) Andre Almeida: nice work. Simple but useful

- (2015-02-18, v:0.3.1) Unlocker Logistika: icon color
dark grey icon is perfect idea, and please make it to be default color selected when the user first time installs extension
- (2014-07-16, v:0.2.1) Michael: Grey Icon
It would be great if you could make the icon dark grey to match the color of Chrome's buttons.
