Google has refrained from making any appstore apps because they believe that webapps are the way to go. Why make users have to update their applications and waste hard drive space when everything can be done instantly over the web? This makes perfect sense but the big let down here is that we have nothing native on our phones that connect to google. So Gmail notifications and the such are nonexistent (from a google standpoint, I know there are third party solutions). Now, the newest developer tools for the AppStore allow developers to put web-browsers in their apps. Why doesn't google make a Gmail app or a Wave app that's nothing more than a google webbrowser? This way they can utilize push to alert us of new messages etc while maintaining their webapp philosophy? Is it possible Apple is blocking this from happening? Similar to how they stopped google voice from happening on the iphone? Just thought I would throw it out there. It would definitely clear up a lot of issues I have with getting mail on my phone.
