Updated Gmail app lands back in the App Store

iOS Gmail App

The once pulled, now updated, GMail application is again available for downloading through the App Store. The previous build was approved and quickly pulled after some issues with Push Notification, and we have been waiting for the application to surface again. For those who still have it installed, the updated advises that you delete the previous version, and then install this version instead of just updating this one over the previous build. With no errors on launch, and notifications pushing, could this update be what we had hoped to see originally? Hit the link below to grab it for yourself, and let us know how it works out for you.

Bracktune says:

It still lacks visual notifications! Why in the world can't they get that part right? And while I would also expect multi-account support, I guess maybe there is some logic why that won't work? But not having visual notifications just doesn't make any sense.

wormeyman says:

It took this long to fix the push notifications? I'll check it out again but right now i'm looking forward to sparrow for iOS http://www.idownloadblog.com/2011/11/03/sparrow-iphone-teaser/. I don't have an apple pc but i hear their app is great.

Wtsg8 says:

I didn't even get a sound or a badge. I had to open the application and let it refresh before my emails appeared. Disappointment.

HogDog says:

It looks just like the web version. Nothing special at all. Pretty disappointing that Google and their resources could work on this and this is the result.

shollomon says:

No multi-account support leaves me out. I'll just continue connecting with the iOS email app through exchange. That works just fine.

Kevin J says:

I'm having a hard time seeing how this is an improvement over the stock email app w/ my gmail account. Am I missing something?

fastlane says:

Nope. Just another app to launch.

Dev says:

It's the webapp with a candy coating, and push notifications, which, as others have pointed out, lack even the visual component.

Guest says:

If you want the best gmail experience on a mobile device, by an android phone. It's not in Google's best interest to make their mail work seamlessly with iOS.
Besides, the stock mail app works just fine. I don't need another email app or web browser.

Not being bitchy, but seriously do you have to put referral link to iTunes app?

It is useless until it has Banner and Notification Center/Lockscreen notifications... I absolutely cannot believe they have built an app without this. Pathetic.

cardfan says:

Not sure why garbage like this app deserves yet another column. I know it's google, but yeah..garbage..

JOZ15 says:

THe badge notifications only show the total amount of messages in the inbox! I don't want it to tell me how many total messages (including spam)! Just my new inbox messages that I care about! What a big joke!

Quick question for people who use the iPhone mail application for Gmail through Exchange. Is there any way to actually delete an email on Gmail as opposed to just archiving it?

Michael says:

No, I don't think so. The main reason why I don't have it set up as Exchange...

And this new app logs out after a certain time frame so must log back in. No bueno in my book.

Slutchman says:

The push notifications aren't working. I've been trying different settings to get it to work. Why is google not working

fechter says:

Meh.
This would have been my "go to" email app 3 years ago...

Anton Frost says:

It works great for me. Works just as well as setting gmail up in exchange. don't really need push but glad it's there in case I do.

Jonatankarter says:

I actually like the look of it, but, really, no visual notifications in the notification center? Lame...

Brandan says:

I created a "garbage" folder and put all deleted items in there. Then when I on my PC I just delete everything in the garbage folder. It is a very annoying quirk though. So much so I have been using live.com for about 3 weeks and am very happy with it so far.

Paul says:

Seems to be working great for me so far, push and all. I'm diggin' it.
It's great to finally have a native Gmail app so I can keep my work and personal email separate as well as have access to my labels and spam folder and such.

Jnottle says:

I downloaded this just to see how it looked - as i was kinda jealous of a friends new mango phone mail application and how it looked sleeker, but the stock app runs way better...
