    I am currently using Gmail in my Safari Browser as opposed to setting up imap thru the iPhone Mail settings. I'm quite pleased with this, however, in the dropdown box that reads "More" I'm not able to access my Labels.

    The only options it gives are "Mark as Read," "Mark as Unread," "Add Star," "Remove Star," "Report as Spam," and "Mute." Whereas, in my Safari Browser on my iMac, it offers the above, PLUS all of my labels.

    Are the labels showing up for anyone else, but neglecting my inbox? Or is this a feature that Gmail has yet to integrate? If so, does anyone have the word on it's pending inclusion in a future update?

    Thank you.

    I've always had issues accessing my GMail account with Safari. So much so that I use FireFox exclusively now. Perhaps Mozilla will make a Firefox web browser for the iPhone.

    im not 100% sure if this will work, but there is a link on google to use the actual web page as opposed to the mobile site...if you switch to the actual page for gmail, you may be able to use labels

    edit: just checked because i was curious....the link is all the way at the bottom, it says "mobile | desktop"
    if you click the desktop link, you can apply labels

    agreed, running the standard version on the iphone does allow me to access labels. but i really like the format of the mobile version...

    i shouldn't have to lose the labels just to use it. does anyone else have any suggestions?

    At this point you can't create new labels or add them to emails on the phone. I have found that if you get creative with your filters on the desktop browser, you will not find the need to mess with labels often on the phone.
