    There are a few choices....

    GMAIL Label Notifier
    GMAIL Unread Counter
    SMS Unread counter

    All those apps allow you to create icons on the desktop that will jump you to an account. Some will even allow you to jump directly to a LABEL in an account. Also, they will give you the ability to visually see how many unread items you have.

    I am currently using Gmail Label Notifier and really like it. It is a paid app, but very cheap and worth it. Gmail Unread Counter is free and also very good.

    Hope this helps.

    You can also long press on you homescreen, select shortcut and then Gmail label to pick which inbox you want to open.
  4. gmail unread counter for me.


    gmail 1 - green - notification tone = THX sound
    gmail 2 - red - notification tone = Intel Jingle
    gmail 3 - blue - notification tone = "you've got mail"

    I have the widgets set up, color coordinated for my needs, and sound specific. Works great.
