Gmail is working completely fresh. Evidently it has push notifications. But I think I’m hitting an iOS 5 bug.
I could not see the Gmail app in notification center, and this isn't the first app I've seen do this. Not necessarily Google's error on not showing in notification center. I think when it finally shows, the notifications will work. But still the MAIL app does that perfectly fine.
I don’t know why the “UNUSABLE” word is being terrified around this. I think it should be “OVER-REACTION” error message.
Please give me a solution. Thanks in advance.
Gmail Application not seen in notification center
As you probably know the Gmail app was released a while back, it however had an error or a bug that showed up when pushing notifications which was causing the app to crash (this was device dependent however).
The good people at Google admitted this and have been working on releasing an updated version which would also feature an updated interface. It should be mentioned that there are some individuals who have managed to install the app properly.
Google had released a message stating that earlier in the day the launched a new gmail app for iOS which as luck would have it contained a bug which broke notification and caused users to view an error when opening the app. They did state that they had removed the app while they corrected the problem and we're working on bringing a new version at the earliest possible time.
At the same time they also stated that anyone who was using the app could continue to use it. This in fact was an acknowledgment by Google themselves that the iOS5 app was indeed a failure
For now, in order to use the app at peak performance, you could try resetting the network settings on your device to default (see guide to multitasking on iOS). It of course is very wise to back up everything before carrying out the reset. Reboot your device and update the firmware to the latest version.
It is worthwhile to mention that iOS5.0.1 was the latest update and it has been more than two months and no word has been heard from them. As of now almost everyone is experiencing the same problem.
