Gmail app for iOS finally gets push notifications, persistent logins
posted by Victor H. / Jun 26, 2012, 2:09 AM
Google has now (finally!) updated its iOS Gmail application to add push support, which simply means that you get full message excerpts notifying you about new and unread email in real time. The new Gmail app updates appear directly in your Notification Center. Also, you get banners, alerts and lock screen notifications when you get new mail.
Google has also fixed the login process, so you don’t have to type in your credentials every once in a while, when your session expires, but instead you get to be persistently logged in.

...or you can just use the built-in Mail app. Sure it doesn't push gmail accounts, but fetching every 15 min is good enough for me

Actually you can get push for gmail on the native app. When setting up the email use the Microsoft Exchange option. Enter your email, domain blank, your username should be the full email address and the password. Click next. You will be prompted for server details. enter m.google.com. Hit next and you are done. Check under settings>Mail,contacts,Calender>fetch New Data it should display push and once you go into Fetch New Data>advanced you should see push is enabled beside the account you have just set up

Oh this was just for the GMail app that Google made for iOS. The built in Mail app has had those features for a while. I still use the GMail app though because I use labels a lot, so I'm glad this change is coming.
