Does anyone work on GMail for iPhone?
I've just started to develop GMail iPhone interface with Ruby on Rails.
This is first draft version. you can check out codes from my svn repository.
If you are interested in this project, please let me know.

Because using gmail from the mail interface on the iPhone sucks if you
have lots of filters. I have about 30 lists I subscribe to in gmail as
I find it the best way to read email lists. Most of these lists my
filters label and archive, and I read possibly once a week to catch
Unfortunately, using iPhone's built in support for gmail in its mail
app will show you ALL of the incoming email from all your lists -- it
doesn't just show you the "inbox". Everything that is filtered to
archive is shown. There is no way to read mail from just specific
So I am using m.gmail.com's WML web pages, which is at least
tolerable, but not as good experience as the iPhone should offer.

I think he's saying: "why not just go to http://gmail.com" No need to
go to a mobile version of the site as you've got what is essentially a
desktop-class browser on your iPhone.
I've done it and I think it's fine. You get the same interface you
use on your desktop. I find it very acceptable and I also use a lot
It works great.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I actually like the standard mail
client on the iPhone. If they would just get it to translate gmail
filtered/archived messages as "folders" I'd be all set. I'd much
rather use the iPhone mail client than doing gmail through safari at
Have any of you used the gmail mobile app that can be downloaded for
the blackberry? It would be awesome if we could have a similar app
for the iphone - the app clusters all emails in discussions and
collapses them just like the web version - it is beautiful - there is
no need to open up safari - the app just constantly syncs and
downloads the emails and as you read emails - it syncs with the online
inbox. Just one button on your iphone homepage.
Much better than just receiveing each individual email one by one in
the inbox without clustering (come on - that is so 90's).

I have .mac service from Apple and after a couple of days with my new
iP switched to it for email. Soon after, I noticed a different folder
structure and realized it was the same as .mac structure. I created a
new folder on .mac and now see it on my iP. Placing a message in the
new folder stores it back on .mac (off iP) but I can still see message
titles and pull them up.
Interesting concept and function that seems specific to .mac as mail

iPhone has a Safari full browser. you can use original Gmail site. But
if you are in AT&T edge networks, it's very slow to load the page.
Even if you are using WiFi, it's still slow to load and compile big
Using plane HTML version or mobile version of Gmail is good enough,
but you can't use AJAX stuff. I think it's not cool because iPhone has
a Safari full browser ;-)
So this is why I've been working on iGmail.
I've updated my test site ( http://igmail.naan.net ) It's still under
development, you only can read inbox mail... I've merged Joe's skin
and now it's much better to see your mail (it is just test. I'll
change all skin).
I will implement reading functions in this week then will implement
Hopefully google will get their act together and put out a version of
GMail Mobile for the iPhone soon...

I'm using the open source glibmailer php library and a modified
version of gmail-lite that I've basically just modified slightly to
work well with the iphone. The gmail-lite guys (http://gmail-
lite.sourceforge.net/wordpress/) deserve the credit, but this is
working surprisingly well so far.
My motivation is to have a slim fast loading gmail app that doesn't
require me to zoom around just to glance at emails in my inbox...but
not quite as stripped down as m.gmail.com. I still want to be able to
view html emails if I want.
can't guarantee it's bug free, but feel free to check it out www.gmail4iphone.com
What is the Yahoo! IMAP incoming server for the iPhone? Can you please
share that with us?
if you change things to "plain text" clicking into a compose or reply
field works fine - you wind up zoomed in to far most of the time - but
you can fix that and still click back into the text field

I guess the only other piece is providing some statement indicating
that you are not viewing or storing usernames and passwords. That
might be the only other issue you would face in adoption. If you are
still actively developing this, we might also talk about ways you
could incorporate an ad on the login screen to bring in some
revenue...at least until the apps are fully developed for the iphone.
