    I had the same error, but after several attempts it did accept it, working great now. Make sure once it accepts your login, not to open the program again.

    Did you include ...@gmail.com or just your username?

    Yeah, it took me about 10 times to get it verified. Just keep trying.

    they're also releasing a premium version that supports multiple accounts and imap support. might as well just wait for that one.

    I finally got it to accept my details, after literally hundreds of attempts. Now to see if anything pushes!

    Just kept hitting submit about 10 times then it worked! I have a gmail exchange server set up on my iPhone anyway so lets see if they both push at the same time!

    It worked after about 4 tries for me. :)

    It's working great! It takes about 5 seconds to get the notification from sending it from my girlfriend's iPhone to receiving the alert on mine.

    Great app! Now they need to add the ability to directly open the mail app. That's something some twitter apps can do with other apps.

    Works here too - got an email about 2 seconds faster than my exchange account. As mentioned, just a shame theres no way to then open the mail app. I believe an enterprise version is coming but I'm not sure what features that will add....

    what does the notification show you besides email address and subject? does it display a snippet of the actual email as well? I'm already using prowl which pushes my gmail but am wondering if this is worth it.

    I deleted it. What a waste of an app. Wouldn't push at all. AT ALL. Nothing. I erased it and reboot my phone and reinstalled it. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

    One star rating.

    Really? It's working great for me. I've tried it out numerous times already and I've gotten every single notification after only a few seconds.

    Are you sure you set it up correctly? Did you make sure you got the 'Successful' alert when inputting your Gmail details? Are your notifications switched on in your settings?

    I have 4 Gmail accounts that I need to check so am not even going to try this until GPush supports more than one account. That seems to be a short-sighted limited -- I realize that this in only release 1.1.

    Agreed. I have 3 gmail accounts and all of them are of equal importance.

    I really am wondering if Mail will ever get native push gmail. I mean it would be good for Apple because push does save a lot of battery.

    I was searching for information about a possible update and I found the company's twitter account. They mention that they have a premium version in the app approval process at this point. They don't mention a price point, though.

    They state that the premium version will support multiple accounts.

    Is this the only app that has push notifications for gmail? Are there any alternatives? I would hate to purchase this app to only learn later that there is something better available.

    Yes, and yes. I have about 12 push apps and they all work. This one did not.

    I was able to authenticate my account on the first try by NOT including the @gmail.com at the end of my userid.

    UPDATE: I actually had to go back and enter the @gmail.com to get it to work properly. It seems to randomly authenticate each user's credentials. One minute it works and the next minute it doesn't work. Also, I sent myself an email several minutes ago and have yet to get a notification.

    Ok, this app is officially a bust and a waste of $.99. I have only received one notification and every time I open the app to check my settings it either says it can't authenticate me or it can't communicate with some server. I will be only giving this app 1 star.
