    Hi,

    Are there any good email widgets out there?
    The standard HTC one is not great. I've checked forum and market, but
    nothing obvious.

    thanks

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but our Executive Assistant widget includes gmail preview, along with upcoming calendar events, missed calls, voicemail access, SMS messages and RSS feeds (all of the associated apps can also be launched directly from the widget).

    Details & screen shots available at Executive Assistant (Appventive)

    If you do give it a try, please let me know what you think.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Not to drag up on old thread but this app deserves a little more attention as it is very useful and very well built. Props to the developer and am looking forward to new feature of multiple pop/imap accounts.

    Well, thanks for dragging this old thread up! I'd not seen this app and have just installed it. I'm impressed with it, it's very good at what it does and replaces a few widgets.

    Might just ask for a Google Tasks tab then it'd be perfect for what I need.

    If you type "Executive assistant" into the market the free one is the third one down.

    Alternatively, if you follow the link to their page above their QR code for the app is at the bottom of the page if you have the barcode scanner installed.

    Great thank for that. I did try the barcode but it gave me a lot of options and wasnt sure what one.
    But just searched Exec assistant like you said and got it. Thanks

    Thank you

    I have published an email widget on the market:

    foobarblog 2.0 App: Email Widget

    This works on HTC and all android 2.1 devices. You can also use K9.

    Regards,
    Frank

    Hi Fish,

    i'm constantly working on the skinning feature. Hopefully there will be an update the next couple weeks. I will take the other feature request on my list.

    Regards,
    Frank

    I am also searching for an email widget, but with no success yet. I've updated to Froyo, hate the new UI and so am now falling in love with LauncherPro, however it doesn't have an email widget and because I'm using it I can no longer access the (rather poor) Dell one. Installing Executive Assistant for a single widget when I'm already very happy with LauncherPro is rather major over-kill. Has anyone yet managed to source a simple email widget?

    i'm looking for the same, kinda like the email widget of lockinfo on iphone, with the possibility of marking emails read without opening the mail app. the only app that does that is the gmail popup, but it's not the inbox preview widget i had in mind.

    I've found one!!
    It's called "EMailWidget" (who'd have thought?!) from invalidobject.com and it's currently running very happily on my UK O2, Froyo Streak. The blah-blah wans that it only works on Rooted phones, however I decided to ignore that (!) and as I say it's installed and running fine on my not-rooted Streak.

    Hi Aidan,

    that's the one i mentioned above ;)
    If you have any feature requests or questions please let me know.
    In the next couple weeks there will be an update to support skinning (customizable designs).

    Regards,
    Frank

    Can it have the option to only show the unread messages? And to be able to mark them read from the widget? That would be great. I started using it as well.

    It has a feature to show only unread mails already.

    The other feature is already planned.

    And yes, it does support exchange accounts, but be aware that on many devices you have to be root to use it.

    Regards,
    Frank

    I've been away so couldn't respond until now. Many thanks for a wonderful widget and also for asking for comments and suggestions. I would like to suggest losing the blue title bar ("INBOX"). I know that it's an email widget and that it's showing me the email from my inbox, so it's a shame that perhaps as much as 30% of the space taken by the widget is taken up by the title bar.

    Aidan, thanks for your feedack. Right now the layouting options are very limited, i know about that. The release i put out today is the first step in customizing the layout (with skins). Because android doesn't give much support for developing this it was a nightmare to implement with many workarounds and dgging into the core system. Widgets are very limited in regards to dynamic layouting and way less flexible than normal apps.
    I appreciate your suggestion and it is going into the same direction like many others i get (customizable font sizes/styles, different layouts...). I will try to find a solution for this in future releases, so stay tuned ;)

    Regards,
    Frank

    I've upgraded and am using the Dell black skin, a lovely improvement. Many thanks Frank for working together with users, it makes the whole experience so much more rewarding for everyone involved.
