What's the best? Thanks
I have Gpush and it doesnt work very well..
Well I think gpush is the best. Unfortunately at this moment apparently they are having issues. But when they fix it, it is flawless.
Just in case you don't know, you can turn on 'push' for iPhone with Gmail via http://www.google.com/mobile/products/sync.html#p=apple
But you may not be using that because of battery life concerns (which may exist, I haven't noticed any myself)
I've been using gpush for a few months now and it seems to be working fine for me. I've not noticed any emails where I've not gotten a pop-up notification. There is supposed to be an update soon that will include quiet hours and the option to auto launch the native iPhone mail app.
I've not tried the others so I can't comment on the pro and cons relative to the others.
I'm not looking to use Exchange for GMail due to not only batt, but some known issues such as "deleting an email on your phone will NOT delete it on your GMail account. It will archive the email."
Anyway, GPush seems to be the most popular but I hear conflicting reports as to how it is working for people.
Just adding my $0.02 ...
I got Gpush and LOVED it, too ... at least until a few weeks ago. It really is the greatest thing when it works and it DID work perfectly for me for quite a while. Then one day a few weeks ago it just quit working and my attempts at workarounds come up pointing to server issues as others have said. I really hope they get it back up and running soon because as I said, I loved it. Like you mentioned, I didn't want to set up the exchange account and all that mess (and I like having a separate button for my two different email accounts - setting up as exchange would kill that idea). I checked out other things and decided to just wait until Gpush was released, and when it was working, I never regretted it.
If and when it gets fixed, I'd highly recommend Gpush ... but unfortunately I'm hesitant to recommend it when it's not working at all.
I have PushGmail and think it's great. I usually get my emails within 1-2 seconds of them being sent. Have never had any issues with it either.
I had neither issue using the Exchange. You can always try it since its free.
The deleting issue is stated on under known issues on Google's own website.
If you're on your phone and you delete an email from within the Mail app (not on gmail.com in Safari), the email really will not be deleted. It will be archived...
That bugs me... If they fix that one issue (and a couple other issues with Calendar), I will switch to using Exchange.
coincidently, I just got a pop-up 'System Message' from GPush saying the server is going to be down for an hour. I hope this maintenance fixes everyones recent problems.
Anyone else get this?
are all these apps on cydia or app store?
the ones discussed so far in this thread are available for non JB iPhones via the app store.
Meaning it goes in to the trash folder, right? Because that's what I got out of it and I thought all email systems work that way. You delete it, it goes to the trash and from there you can put it back into any other folder or delete it permanently.
From what I understood, it just gets archived under "all mail." Maybe I'm wrong...? Read the known issues on Google's page and let me know what you think.
If it really does go to the trash folder, and gets deleted within 30 days like all other trash, then that would be good
Gpush works great here in Canada. I'm on Rogers Network and no issues with it. I have a blackberry Storm on the Telus Network and when I send an email from one of my accounts to another, I get the one on the iphone about a second before i get the one on my blackberry, so I can't complain. It had a few issues at first, but since then, no problems whatsoever.
PushMail works very well. I was skeptical at first, but they have proven me wrong. PushMail hasn't missed an email at all.
No, it doesn't go into trash when you delete it over exchange. It goes into the "All Mail" folder. A work around is to just move the email to the Trash folder instead of deleting.
I just installed GPush and for some reason it doesn't take my username and pw. I tried with @gmail.com and without... Weird...
Mail Notifier by Enflick is the best....
+2.....it does gmail and hotmail, and you can have multiple accounts
The next version will support IMAP and POP accounts too.....
I'm beta testing Mail Notifier 2.0 and let me tell you, BEST Push mail you can find outthere. It pushes Hotmail, AOL, Gmail, Imap and POP accounts. It still has some minor issues (at least with my POP accounts) but for the rest, almost perfect.
another vote for do push mail. I've had 100% reliability with it and Gmail since day one.
