    Does anybody know of an app that will show how many unread emails you have for gmail and corporate email? I like the default program but the widget is just a shortcut and doesn't show an unread count. I looked in the market and couldn't find anything. There has to be an app for that, it seems so basic.

    If I'm not making sense: I have handcent and the Handcent widget puts a little number of unread messages in the corner of the widget.

    The reason I want these widgets is because I use Home++ and I like having the notification bar hidden but I can't see when I have new emails.

    Is there a different solution other that widgets?

    100 Views and no answers.

    I guess that means this doesn't exist.

    Maybe a developer should hop on it!! :)

    Check out pure messenger widget.

    In the options, you can check for just unread messages.

    Whatever you do, don't duplicate my mistake. Purchased an app by Warren Miller, which theoretically gives you just what you've described. Worked for about a week. That was back in November. I've since memorized the name. Nevah! again.

    On more positive news, Pure Messenger Widget is fantastic. Frequent updates with additional features. I love this dev.

    I have one that works for text, and calls missed called "SMS unread count" but it does not include and email one. I wish it did

    I have seen a bunch made by "warren miller" but they seem to be defective, I really wish the "SMS unread count" dev made on for email. I would pay for it if It had counts for all three and not just 2/3 of my "inbox's"

    in other words, for now you are SOL. maybe in the near future...

    I looked at the Pure Messenger Widget but it looks like it shows previews of the email's in a widget. What I'm looking for is a 1x1 button that shows how many unread emails you have, then when you click on it, it loads the email application. Does Pure Messenger also do a 1x1 widget? Does anybody have a screenshot?

    The smallest widget Pure has is 4x2.

    The best thing to do is try it out, if you don't like it, you can return it within 24 hours.
