BOSTON & SAN FRANCISCO--(GPush, which is now available in the App Store, enables iPhone users to instantly receive GMail notifications on their iPhone. Without GPush, iPhone users can sometimes wait up to an hour to be notified of a new email received in their Gmail inbox.)--GPush, the GMail push application for the iPhone, is available today through the Apple App Store. Instant or “push” GMail has been accessible on most smartphones for years, but surprisingly has not been available on iPhone, until now.
“with all that is going on with Google, Apple and the FCC, we are pleasantly surprised GPush was accepted into the App store.”
The GPush Application, which retails for $0.99 in the App store, gives iPhone users the ability to choose how they want to be notified of new email. GPush options include having the iPhone vibrate and ring and having the GPush icon display the number of unread messages received. GPush users also receive previews of incoming emails, displaying the sender’s name and subject headings.
“The lack of push GMail on my iPhone is the one feature that made me want to switch back to my Blackberry,” said Eliran Sapir, Co-founder of Tiverias Apps. “With GPush, I can continue using my iPhone with no worries of when my next email will arrive.” Yoni Gontownik, Co-founder, said, “with all that is going on with Google, Apple and the FCC, we are pleasantly surprised GPush was accepted into the App store.”
