Seems it's been pulled. Update shows up but when attempting to update the App Store gives the error that "The item you tried to buy is no longer available." Seem to remember the original Gmail app being pulled right away in similar manner.

Huh. That apparently really does work. Odd...

Visually, it looks very Windows 8-ish...all those thin fonts everywhere. Not a huge fan of this look.

Still looking for a viable reason to use this app over or in conjunction with Apple's Mail app...If anybody has any examples of how this app is better than the native iOS mail app, please do share.

Two Questions

1. Anybody else have the problem with the badge # not matching the total unread emails?

2. I never saw an option to activate push emails from Gmail when starting the app. Does this app automatically receive push emails or is there a place to go for this setting?

Otherwise, great looking app. For those of us with multiple gmail accounts (but no other email accounts outside of gmail), this is fantastic.

Same here, I hate the "thread" look in emails. I use it for my 1 gmail email, I use that for junk to sign up for and stuff.

No, I mean that actual app interface, not the app icon.

Agreed. Looks like it could almost be a Windows Phone app with the fonts used. I'm okay with that, though. It looks clean.

As to why I use the Gmail app over the stock mail app. . .it automatically pulls all the from addresses that I use with my Gmail account. Also, it pulls all the signatures for each from address I use. The stock mail app can do both of these things, but not without a lot of extra work. You have to manually enter each signature for each from address on your iOS device. Not fun if, like me, you do consulting work and have five or six different from addresses each with unique signatures.

Also, if I change a signature via the Gmail web interface and use the stock mail app, the signature isn't updated accordingly. If I use the Gmail app, the signature is automatically updated.

they just put in multiple accounts so how could there have been a unified inbox in the past?

I agree it would be nice

Biggest drawback for me as well. Though this is somewhat mitigated by the fact that you can open directly into a specific message but sliding or clicking the notification.

When I switched over to the Gmail app, I simply put the iOS Mail app in the background, I guess you could say. I set it to only update manually and to never give me notices or badges. This is the best option, because if you use the Share option in one of your favorite apps and choose Email, you're going to want to still have your accounts set up in iOS / Mail app, because it won't be able to use the Gmail app to send those emails.

Sigh. Much worse than the old version. Why is trying to fit information on screen now considered bad?

No, it hasn't been pulled. IF you can't install via Update, just delete the App and reinstall it.

I've never had the app installed and I get the same error message when trying to download it.
