    Are there any apps that mimic what PushForGmail does? I am too eager to get push back, and prefer not to wait for an update. I much prefer the stock mail app to the 3rd party apps out there.

    So, there's no way to get Push to work with the native mail app for Gmail? I did have it on my iPhone 5.

    There are lots of people reporting that it puts their device in Safe Mode. It works on my 5s but pits my iPad 4 in Safe Mode.

    Just bought the tweak. I can't get push to work on my iphone 6+. Triple checked settings and rebooted. Any tricks?

    Did you follow the instructions on cydia? Downloading the gmail app, having the gmail app, setting the fetch to manual, etc?

    I also bought the tweak and it works flawlessly on my iPhone 6, havn`t tried it yet on my iPad Air due to the reports of crashing units.

    Will wait for an update hopefully fixing the iPad bug before installing this on my Air.

    Puts my iPhone 5 into safe mode, unable to use it. Most probably not playing well with another tweak. I have..........

    (Edit, just read on Cydia an update is coming to fix crashes)

    Installed a few hours ago and since then got pushed few dozens of emails. Love this tweak on my 6+. Most of the time i was getting emails with 15 or more minutes delayed... not anymore!!!

    anyone have any insider information on how this tweak works? it installs a mobilesubstrate file, so I'm wondering if it's a constant background process that uses up a lot of battery.

    I'm trying to minimize my tweaks usage to maximize battery life.
