Gmail for iOS

The Good The official Gmail app for iOS from Google makes browsing your email easy, and being able to launch other Google apps from within email is convenient.

The Bad There is no unified inbox view for people with multiple Gmail accounts.

The Bottom Line The official Gmail app is a solid option with multiple account support, integration with Google apps, and more features that bring the app closer to the Web-based client.
