    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.

    My updated gmail works fine with golauncher notifications. I haven't had any problems as mentioned above. And yes its the latest updated version of Gmail.

    I also use colorizes Widgets as well.

    Not sure either, in fact I was reading other threads when o got notified by my gmail widget that there was already a reply yours so I know its working fine for me. I have mine locked into memory through my rom that I'm on so don't know if that plays into it.

    Yep. And again was notified that you also replied, I have the following locked into memory,

    Gmail
    GoLauncher
    Messages (even though I don't use it)
    Handcent SMS
    Widget Locker (So I still have it when memory is low cuz it is my default lockscreen.)
    Setcpu
    So I don't know if this set up is what is keeping me from having issues or not but, I'm not changing anything so its staying this way. Lol
