    Extra app on iDevices takes up unnecessary space
    Exactly, unless it offers improved contact/calendar/email sync, I would say it isn't worth the download, seeing as exchange mail on ios does it all ...

    Yeah I'm pretty sure the Gmail app just got pulled. Anybody know as to why yet?

    It was pulled by Google because of some bugs.

    Default Not pushed
    I find the web application combined with an app called Push GMail just fine for checking my mail and the native mail app to make sure I have the most recent 200 e mails. Can't say I'm madly excited about this release. Mad that they could get as far as a release and then find it was no good though

    Does it all? It doesn't support full starring, priority inbox, label alerts, ability to view gchat logs (you'll notice you can't get to your chats folder via IMAP or Exchange setup without doing some workaround)

    My statement was based on the posting times.

    Apparently it broke notifications. Not sure if it was OS-wide or just for the app though

Gmail app solves this issue.
