Gmail question for Evo owners
so AC announced the updated Gmail app.
I checked my Evo. I'm running Gmail version 2.3 so I'm a few updates behind. However my Evo also shows this is not a downloaded app (it also doesn't show up in my list of apps in my market.
So I'm guessing this came with the last update Sprint sent or it's bloatware (not really) from sprint.
Can I update via the on-air download? Should I update? I'm on android 2.2

I'm not sure if this happens with newer HTC stock software versions, but it used to be that apps that were pre-installed (Gmail, Facebook. . .) weren't shown in the market as being installed. It doesn't cause a problem because the first time you install them from the market, it upgrades the existing and creates the market link so you receive future updates.
The Gmail app itself is on the stock ROM. You confused me a bit with the "bloatware" comment.
Go ahead and update your Gmail. It will create that market link and you'll see it for future updates.
Sorry, I guess I view any pushed application as bloatware, even tho I loves me my Gmail. that's why I said (not really).
So I'm golden to download the latest and greatest Gmail? Super, thank you much... I'll give it a whirl.

Is this the latest update since 2.3? Because that's the version I'm running.
I thought it added other bug fixes and label fixes besides the one Gingerbread fix? It didn't sound like a GB only fix but maybe I misunderstood.

Something is very buggy about this update, since downloading it my messages are not being automatically pushed through. Think I'm going to uninstall the update until they get this together.Palm Pre,Blackberry,HTC Evo 4g, HTC Evo LTE, Samsung Galaxy 2.10 Tablet, Samsung Galaxy S4

Since we're talking about Gmail, am I missing anything by plugging my gmail account into the normal email account? The actual gmail app on my Hero sucked, and never showed an updated "new mail" count. Have things gotten better, or is using my regular email app sufficient?
