    Wouldn’t say it’s that awesome.

  • Jason

    Where is it? Link? I search for it in the app store and nothing…

  • Jason
  • Rvallejo27

    cant find the app

  • Marcelo Reali

    There’s no link and I can’t find on the App Store. Was the pulled down?

  • Aufdenschlips

    so it´s like the mail app iOS has ???

  • Sean Dale
  • Epcjudge
  • Eric

    So it does the same thing as the latest native Mail app on the iPhone.  Hmmm…a little too late there Google.  Just like with everything else you do.  lol

  • prof_peabody

    don’t like.  icky.  

  • ufslide

    Not sure why we need another mail app to handle gmail? The native ios mail handler works fine. Why would you want to go to multiple locations to check emails. dumb

  • sokokyu

    Awesome? Really?

  • Steve

    I just installed it, and it’s worst app that i ever seen :( It’s sad, because i like Gmail. 

  • MacHead84

    This will boost battery life for sure. No longer need the to fetch every 15 minutes. Just let push notifications handle new messages. And keep the for sending emails thru applications that are integrated with it. 

  • Greg

    That headline needs some adjusting…Awesome? I don’t think so. It is HORRIBLE. I’ll still with the built in Apple Mail app.

  • guest

    How do you call something “awesome” when you haven’t even tried it? 

    Brutal app.  Buggy.  First thing you see is an error msg. No Push notifications, doesn’t support pinch to zoom (some html emails get fracked).

  • Joelcypher

    I just installed it and pictures in emails do not fit the iPhone screen. I will stuck with the native IOS email app.

  • Matt Ward

    How is better then using the Mail app on my ipad. I have multiple mail accounts why would I want to use a separate app for Gmail when I already have a combined inbox in the Mail app for all my mail accounts.

  • Rich Wood

    Awesome? Awesomely bad more like.

    “Google Releases Awesome Official Gmail App For iPhone, iPad and iPod touch”

    You probably did not try it. Only one account, no signature, no push and buggy. Kinda sucks basically.

  • martinberoiz

    you don’t have to fetch every 15 min, you can set it to manually in settings.

  • MacHead84

    Which is crappy. I want to be notified as quickly as possible. Which push notifications can handle more battery efficiently than mail fetch. 

  • Joelcypher

     The main interface isn’t all that native feeling. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s just the web version wrapped in an app.

  • Jordan Clay

    The App was pulled because of how awesome it was…..and by awesome I mean buggy and terrible.

    But…at least it lasted longer than Kim K. marriage

  • Hilmar Þór Guðmundsson

    I have to ask this. How could a news editor post something like “Awsome” in a headline when he really could not have tried it? The app was taken offline 3 hours after launch because every who tried it hated it.

    As a loyal reader of the Cult I would like to trust that you guys try this stuff before copy/pasting marketing material from Google or any other company.

    Just a thought.

  • Genyus

    To those asking if the app was pulled, yes, it was.!/gmail/s

  • Girts Dumpis

    you can set up gmail as exchange account and it works like a charm with push mail etc! using it for at least a year – had no probz! just search google (lol) how to do that and you’ll be happy! 

  • MacHead84

    Thanks, Ill have to check into that

  • David Clark

    Not on the store. Links dead.

  • trock30000

    Everyone on android had a gmail app long before this app was released

  • Jonathon Wilson

    Yeah this ‘news editor’ really pisses me off doing stuff like this.

  • Chris Owens

    Really?  You’re going to retroactively change the article headline?  Maybe leave it up as a constant reminder to yourselves to actually try something out before posting a ringing endorsement.  

  • Gundark

    I concur.  Someone explain to me the benefit of an entirely separate app to check Gmail, when all my other mail comes into the main Mail app.
