    Does Nova Launcher have the ability to customize multiple Gmail accounts?
    Where I could have "Gmail 1" and "Gmail 2" both with their own unread badge counts, icons and a shortcut right to their respective Inbox?
    Or do all the Gmail accounts get combined into one?

    I used to use Unread Badge but several weeks ago the shortcut to the inboxes stopped working.

    Thanks for any help

    I'm not sure if the unread badges work for different accounts but you can create different shortcuts this way: long press on the home screen, tap on 'widgets', scroll down the list until you find Gmail label, drag it to the screen, select account and select label.

    Currently, the Unread Badge widget properly shows the unread email counts, but the shortcuts to the proper inbox are messed up.
    I wonder if I could still use the Unread Badge widget on Nova, then use Nova to assign a swipe shortcut on each widget to go to the proper Gmail inbox...

    Do you mean the swipe up action in Nova? If so, try this. Long press the icon, tap on edit, swipe action, shortcut tab, Gmail label, account, label.

    Yeah, the swipe up. I've never used any Launcher besides the stock HTC Sense, but am going to have to try this.
    Thanks!

    Follow up:
    You can't assign swipe shortcuts onto widgets, so my idea didn't work. I ended keeping the Unread Badge counters/widgets on the home screen with shortcuts to the proper Gmail inbox labels right below them. Not ideal but it works...

    I still can't believe Google doesn't have this feature baked into the Android OS... They want us to use Gmail but don't want separate counters and shortcuts to the different accounts?
