App looks good...waiting for update on my android...push notification is already available on iOS for gmail. Instead of using Gmail option mail client use exchange option and you gmail user and pwd. When it ask for server enter m.google.com...there you go...now you can sync your gmail contacts too :)

Google has a responsibility to its users, some of which don't use Android devices. This gives those users a better experience than the stock Mail app. Simple as that. It's not like Google is adding all the fancy new maps features into iOS anymore.

Sorry didn't mean to thumbs up you meant to respond. Was saying Apple will eventually burn that bridge.. I don't care if someone paid to punch me in the face everyday even if I benefited from it. Eventually it would piss me off... And id cut ties lol.
