If there has been one feature that iPhone users have been wanting natively without buying Apple’s mobile me service or using yahoo’s ymail is push email. Push email also has been one of the most requested features for the million of mobile Gmail users and today the wait is over.
Using Google Sync, you can now get your Gmail messages pushed directly to your phone. Having an over-the-air, always-on connection means that your inbox is up to date, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Sync works with your phone’s native email application so there’s no additional software needed . Via Google Mobile Blog
According to the post push gmail should be rolling out soon. As an iPhone user who have seen a recent wave of push email apps such as Gpush and PushMail it will be interesting to see how Google’s announcement will affect these two services.
Thanks Google we have been waiting on this, well at least iPhone users have been.
