Hey guys,

I'm looking for a new Gmail client, as I want to keep my 3 Gmail accounts separate from my stock mail app.
I'd like push notifications that I maybe can even modify (depending on who I get a mail from, which label the conversation has, only starred conversations, whatever, but this is a bonus, not a requirement).
I stopped using the official Gmail app, as I refuse to use single sign on. My mail accounts and my Youtube accounts differ and I have no intention to mix the mess that is switching accounts as it is. (Sometimes I randomly get thrown into another account in my YT app, etc etc... I don't trust the system and I just don't want to fuse more accounts into all this)

Mailbox is not an option, I have it, but will get rid of it soon.
I feel no need for the "inbox zero" approach and I also don't want to add more folder clutter to my Gmail account like Mailbox forces me to.
It will be thrown off my iPhone the same moment the official Gmail app gets the boot.

Thanks in advance!

What I do is use the Gmail app for push notifactions, but use the mail app as my actual email app.

It isn't the best solution but it works for me (at least until someone suggests a better app here ;) )

Same

Also don't like Mailbox.
I have been using gmail app more and more since 1. They updated with background updates, and 2 my employer started blocking imap.
