    Google's official Gmail app made its debut on November 2nd only to be pulled a couple of hours later by Google themselves.

    Two weeks fast forward, still nothing. Does it really take that long to fix the damn Push error???

    Sure, I'll download it as soon as it's available again. But I'll as surely ditch it for Sparrow's Gmail app when it's out early next year. Those guys (just like people behind Tapbots) have some exceptional design skills.

    And to make matters worse, the alert tone is the same as the default text message tone.

    Lack of notification center support was an instant fail and delete for me. Notification center was the big reason for upgrading to ios 5 for me. The stupid badges are useless.

    Yes, but you have to set it up as an Exchange client.

    Wrong. You can set up as an Exchange service as described above and it will push. It has been this way since iOS 3.0

    It does if you connect to Gmail as an Exchange server.

    You will be surprised how small google's teams are for projects. Many of which only have a handful of employee. I would admit this is utter fail though, but google has a history of releasing products early in beta form and then slowly adding features on.

    At lease Gmail via exchange works fine. Still hoping for them to support reminders via activesync

    I'm getting no notifications at all, no badges, no sounds. Anyone?
