Mail App vs web mail
If you are an iPhone user, why do you need to even bother using the web version of Gmail., when i$ were 'kind' enough to include quite a usefull mail app with the phone.
A Mail app that actually downloads the emails from your inbox(es) when you are able to connect, and will also store any sent messages untill you have a strong enough singnal to push them out.
I have 3 different Gmail accounts set up on my iPhone 3G, and can easily switch between them, dont have to fart about logging out and loggin back in, its all done for me. I can't imagine why i might even want to try and use a mobile web version after that.
Of course it could be that G$'s own Android platform doesnt implement a mail client quite as successfully as the mobilOSx does and that in the name of cooperation they thought they should make the service available to their fruity bedfellows.
Halo steve, coz the Mail is one thing he managed to get right.
