Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but the thing that annoys me the most about the Droid (esp. coming from the iPhone) is that there is a separate Gmail app and an Email app, for other accounts such as Exchange. In order to have a combined inbox using a single app, I have to use the Email app to set up Gmail as an IMAP account along with the Exchange account. This works, but has a handful of problems with the Gmail account:
- Doesn't obey Gmail tags for Sent, Trash, etc without a way of configuring it to do so
- Syncing is horrible (no push, takes ages to sync, etc)
- Interface isn't great
- No threaded conversations
Also, in order to have my Exchange calendar show up with my Google Calendar, I have to have a desktop running Outlook and Google's Exchange to Google Calendar syncing application to copy my calendar to my GMail calendar, which in turn shows up in Droid's Calendar app.
Am I just doing it wrong or are these the current limitations?
