I have been looking for a good gmail widget. Can only pass on some advice
We need to know what you need from the widget. See the messages or get label notifications or maybe just mail count.
Be more specific, but first of all search the Market.
Sorry; I agree.
I really want to be able to see the total email count on the widget. The few I have downloaded (both free and paid) didn't seem to work well when it came to refreshing. I did find one but the graphics were not that great and the widget name text didn't align on the screen with all my other widgets.
Thanks for the help!
I would love a good gmail widget, similar to the HTC sense mail widget.
The problem w/ HTC's mail client is it doesn't appear to utilize push, it seems that it checks the mail every hour or so...
So are you looking for a widget that just replaces the icon and displays an unread count, or an actual email widget that displays your messages. You can use Gmail Unread Count for...well...an unread count. If you want a messages widget, Pure Messenger works well. I think it costs a couple dollars, but it's worth it. It can display gmail, sms, etc. or any combination.
Pure messenger has mixed reviews, but it appears to be the only alternative..a
