    The only bug I've had is that the Gmail app is no longer receiving push notifications...It doesn't even show that I have received an email until I open the program and swipe to refresh...any solutions? I don'y know if ios8 changed my settings, but they look just fine from before...

    Probably not the issue as mine was working before, but a small Gmail update just hit the App Store.

    I was having that issue with my mailbox app and I just uninstalled the app and downloaded it back on. A little annoying but it worked.

    Have you tried opening the app to let it load at least once since updating to iOS 8? I didn't have notifications coming through until I actually opened the app once and then the notifications started appearing after that.

    I sure did...I'm literally not getting any notifications at all...neither is my wife...I may have to take a "wait and see" approach...

    And it no longer worked for about 24 hours...I have disabled notifications for Mail, and enabled for Gmail App...I have background refresh on for Gmail app...I have enabled All New Mail notifications...What other settings could it be?

    Hit hamburger icon and then the gear in the gmail app then goto notifications and make sure it is set to "all new mail".

    It may have gotten set to none for some reason.

    I have also had gmail do this from time to time, especially on weekends. It is up to them to send the push and sometimes they just aren't reliable.

    Just to make sure the uninstall/install is clean, do this:

    (1) Remove your accounts from the gmail app first: under "Manage accounts", slide the switch to off for your account, press "Edit", and click "Remove"

    (2) Uninstall the gmail app

    (3) Do a hard reset: hold down power button and home button.

    (4) Re-install the gmail app.

    Keep us updated on this please. I'm having a similar issue. I'm attempting to get used to using the Gmail app as I've lost my Exchange/push ability with my new phone, but I feel like push isn't working fast or sometimes even at all with the Gmail app.

    Dang...back to square one...that didn't work. My settings are all matched with what my wife has on hers, and hers is working just fine. I have even completely restored the iphone last night and still nothing...I'm wondering if I should just transfer everything to the Mail app...but then I heard that I can't get push with gmail on the Mail app...this is kind of an annoying problem to have...

    Have you looked to see if notifications, or badge has been turned off. I had this problem recently, and somehow gmail notifications and badge things were turned off. Fixed it and its working now

    Appreciate it...badge and notifications are both on...there's gotta be a simple fix for this...something that I'm over thinking...

    Try turning the notifications off, then moving gmail into no notifications. Hard reset the phone. Then move them back up into notifications that are allowed to happen, and turn them on, and give it a test.

    Thats what I would try.

    Second I would log into gmail settings on and check if they are allowing pop3/imap gmail push there...otherwise I gotta think about other suggestions.
