Gmail

Did you lose Gmail over Exchange when you upgraded to a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c? Here are your alternatives... such as they are...

Earlier this year, Google decided to ditch their Exchange ActiveSync-licensed GoogleSync service for free Gmail accounts. Paid Google Accounts still enjoy full support, and existing setups were grandfathered in, but any new, free account setups, like those necessitated by a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c means - poof - no more Gmail over Exchange. So, what's left for you to do? If you don't want to pony up for a paid account, or forward to a push service like iCloud or Outlook.com, you can use Google's eccentric IMAP service, which works with Apple's Mail app and allows for a unifed inbox with other, non-Gmail accounts, and the Gmail app, which is excellent but is a silo unto itself, and a few other options. Here they are, such as they are...

Gmail for iOS updated with better attachment handling, better integration with Drive and Google+

Google has updated their native Gmail app to version 2.4. New features include what they're calling "enhanced email attachments" which appears to translate into larger thumbnails and full screen previews. Also on board is better integration with two other Google apps - Google Drive and Google+. Links to either now go directly to the appropriate app instead of the web. Google does point out that feature can be disabled via the in-app settings, for those who find the integration to close for comfort.

You can grab the Gmail app, or the update, via the App Store now.

Gmail over ActiveSync experiencing failure to push, are you having problems?

Gmail over ActiveSync hasn't been working properly for me for the last few days. I get no mail for hours at a time, then a ton of mail spurts in, then no mail again. IMAP is fine, it's only ActiveSync that's causing me problems. Google, of course, is end-of-lifing the free version of GoogleSync -- their licensed version of Microsoft's Exchange ActiveSync for push mail, contacts, and calendars -- but existing setups are supposed to keep working, as are paid Google accounts. That's what I have, a paid Google Account, which means I should be getting ActiveSync service as usual going forward. So what's the deal?
