    Same app as now, just updated for Lollipop. The APK is signed by Google, but if you want to wait the only functionality this brings is multiple accounts. And material design of course. If that is no biggie, just wait for it to roll out in the next 2 weeks.

    Good things come to those that wait.

    1. Open app
    2. Tap on hamburger button
    3. Tap the white down arrow next to your email address and name
    4. Tap + sign to add accounts or view ones you've already added

    Gmail keeps emails separate for each account, so you are essentially scrolling from one account to the next. So if an email comes in for your Yahoo address and you tap the notification, Gmail will open to that portion of your account.

    It isn't like Apples email client where you can have all email combined. At least I haven't figured out how to make it do that yet.

    Like this a lot. Was using K9 Mail for my various other work accounts before, but maybe I can make the move to all Gmail now!

    Ouch... thanks for answering my question though. I have 5 accounts so I will be deleting this app and using Touchwiz "Email" instead. It looks and functions very nice but no unified inbox is a huge fail in my opinion.
