    Warning on Gmail update

    Just a warning on anyone who wants to update their Gmail app thats in the market today. Don't do it if you have any widgets that integrate with Gmail. Google has removed the ability of third party tools to talk to Gmail's database. Meaning your LP Gmail widgets wont work, your MissedIt! widget won't work, and any other widget that accesses your Gmail account will break...I guess you can do a complete wipe to downgrade back to an old version, as uninstalling updates doesn't fix this, but I havent tried a full wipe...

    Gotta love Google sometimes...haha

    there's no way an apple update would destroy functionality of multiple apps haha

    this is caused by the so-called "openness" and how impossible it is to keep everything in check...not a good thing

    for those of you who've done it, restoring a backup works too, so no need to complete wipe.
