My stock Gmail app does not feature an unread counter... not that I can find. Is there a favorite counter app that will add this to the stock Gmail app? How does this one check out? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ellevsoft.gmailunreadfree I'm not quite sure what to make of this note in the description: "[Important]: Gmail app (NOT Android version) needs to be at version 2.3.6 or higher on Froyo or Gingerbread; 4.0.5 or higher on Honeycomb and ICS. Be sure you first check the Gmail app version and/or update to the latest."
