Wow, richtig gute Neuigkeiten. Wenn Apple das App nicht zurückweist, wird es bald ein kleines Programm geben das es Dir ermöglicht Deine Mails über Google Mail per Push Benachrichtigung aufs iPhone zu bekommen.

Das wäre eine feine Sache und soll richtig gut funktionieren.

And the app couldn’t be simpler. You fire it up, enter your Gmail username and password, and if you choose, you never have to open the actual app ever again. The app doesn’t even have anything besides the log-in screen. It technically works by using IMAP IDLE functionality which Gmail supports (but doesn’t on the iPhone for whatever reason). This is the same way that push Gmail works on devices like the Palm Pre and Android phones.

And while IMAP IDLE is generally thought to be not as good as actual push, GPush works pretty well. In my tests, new emails would show up about 10-30 seconds after I sent them. Not “instantaneous,” but not bad either. Especially when you compare it to having to open the email app and have it manually check if any email is there. Or setting the iPhone to check it every 15 or 30 minutes.

Wenn das Programm im App Store auftaucht bin ich auf jeden Fall dabei, auch wenn die Push Notifications ja dann doch relativ viel Saft fressen.
