I'm trying to figure out exactly how the two applications interact. On my phone all emails are read. However, on the top bar it says Inbox (2). I hit manual refresh and the sync icon shows up but it still shows two. So I get on my pc and check the actual GMail and there are two unread messages that are marked as read on my phone. Yet otherwise I sync up fine. I doubt this is a technical issue (which is why I decided to put it in general chat) but rather my lack of understanding on the applications interactions.
Eventually I think it syncs up...also if I mark it read in the actual app it syncs up as read on my phone
