    Default Pre-Installed Gmail app.

    is it me or this app just doesn't work on the atrix. It doesn't push email no notifications nothing. In order to get push i have to link my account to the stupid motorola email app, then i can get pushed gmail. but that's not what i want, and i shouldn't be forced to use motorolas app.

    reason why i want to use the gmail app is because launcher pro updated with a gmail widget, but that uses the gmail app, but i can't use the gmail app because motorola doesn't let me. Very dumb.

    if im missing something i would appreciate the help.

    Works fine here. Are you talking of the Google gmail app? I upgraaded the shipped version with the latest one from the Market. No issues and notifies, etc. just fine.

    sync gmail touch to sync now? It says it like that? Can you delete the app and re install it?
    Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

    yea it never said that when i first got it but after about 1 hour (when i first got the phone) it would change. I even wiped the phone the day after, then exactly 1 hour later it said the same thing. I tried deleting and installing again, nothing. here's a pic of what it looks like.

    I was having a similar issue and found that my "sync" was turned off!
    Try adding the "Power Control" widget and then check to see if "sync" is turned on.
    Mine was "off" and turning it "on" resolved my Gmail issue.

    Power control widget can certainly be a blessing.
