Thread: Add unread badge to GMail webapp shortcut

  1. #1
    Default Add unread badge to GMail webapp shortcut
    I don't like using the native mail app on the iphone, but i keep it on the dock just for the unread count. Is there a way to add that icon to the gmail app? Or would you recommend something like GPush instead. I just don't see the point to pay $2 just for a badge.

    There's a lot more. "gmailapp" just launched a browser that can load GMail inside, and has no badge

    Yeah, i just saw iGmail. Seems like it's the best option, but paying a subscription for push, or the $4 for having a client on my PC seems live overkill for something this simple. I should just get an android

    I should go ahead and agree with you, so that people start thinking that this is possible. Then again, do you want these forums overrun by questions "HALP! NEED ANDROID ON IPHONE ASAP!!!!!"

    Well, i remember seeing linux on the iPhone, but I really doubt you would be able to use the phone part of it, even if it becomes a simple thing to do. There's no way ATT would allow that on their network.
