I took this from another thread over in Applications, but figured I would post here since we're all Eris users. That's an awesome idea. People, IMO, is a great app. Mail kind of sucks . . . Here's my dilemma, I really like how Mail will give me that nice green circle on the Shortcut that will show me how many unread emails I'm dealing with. I fooled around by replacing the Mail Shortcut with the Gmail Shortcut and there's no Notification, except in the Status Bar. Is there a Setting I'm missing or does the native Gmail app lack this? Do you know of a 1x1 widget that might help, by chance? If someone has a nice solution I'm missing out on, please chime in--any help is appreciated!
