my dad wants me to look into push apps for gmail accounts, and ive found quite a few. he wants one that tells him, on the lockscreen, that there is an email to be read, like when he gets texts. i think that eliminates all but two. there is GPush, and PushGmail. both are the same price, and both have text-like alerts. PushGmail has a mobile gmail browser built in. It also has a 3.5 star rating, with 407 ratings. GPush just sends a simple notification. It has a 3 star rating, but with 1154 ratings. nothing special. so whats better? and a little bonus, but not necessary, does it work on ipod touches? i have an 1g, but he buying it, but just a little bonus.
