I've not tried it yet, since I use nuevasync.

But, try it, for $0.99, here....

Just tried to buy it and got a message saying product no longer available. That didn't last long

Well I got it, but it's not working. They apparently have some server issues to work out on their end. I couldn't connect to register.

...just received an email:
Ivan,
It's not a problem with the application - there is a server issue we are experiencing - the whole team is working on fixing the problem, which we hope will be resolved later today. Please bear with us.
To stay up to speed follow us at http://twitter.com/GPush4iPhone
Thank you,
Dave - Team GPush @gpush4iPhone...

So this is ALMOST push but not quite? Not a bad workaround for 1 buck.

?

I'm not sure I want my mail going through a 3rd party, let alone a 3rd party who cannot even get their servers working on the first day of release.

The mail isn't routed through their servers at all. All Gpush does is simply notify you of new mail, but you still have to physically open the mail app to read it.

Too Late, Switched all my stuff over to MobileMe and loving it. Gmail is a thing of the past for me.

Maybe I didn't express myself properly.

You need to supply your Gmail password to Gpush. On their end, presumably on their servers, your gmail account is constantly accessed. Once a new mail is received they know it, because they are logged in as you. They then send you a push notification, and you can then check Gmail manually.

I don't really know anything about this company other than they were planning to release Gpush, released it, then had to pull it because of server issues. Guess I'm not comfortable with them having access to nearly all of my email.

What I do now is have my gmail forwarded to MobileMe. Actually I only have mail I consider important forwarded to MobileMe, primarily so I can get a push notification. I still check my mail on the iPhone via Gmail. I didn't find push sped up the checking email process all that much anyway.

They are losing some serious credibility with this server issue. I'm starting to think I wasted a buck.

I've tried PushMail, it just works...

But, with GPush, I'm really not sure what to say now. I wish I never bought it, but more importantly never signed up to it. The money is not the issue here, just the whole server thing. It just tells me they were not really ready...

This seems like a cool one. PushMail App

Anyone tried it? From this site, the dev says nothing is stored longer than what is needed for the push. No Gmail account info needs to be entered.

PushMail requires forwarding all mail to them. Not that I don't trust these smaller companies, I'm just a little leery of giving that much trust to a small company I don't know.

But in essense, that is what I do with MobileMe. I suppose, if Yahoo push works for you, you could use that too (I never had good or consistent results with Yahoo push).
