Gmail Unread Count 2.0 lets you see how many unread emails you have directly on your home screen! You can have multiple widgets for different accounts and labels so you easily can keep track of different kind of emails
This application now works with latest Gmail version, currently 2.3.5!
* Multi-account support
* Selectable account label
* Priority Inbox
* Multiple icons
* Custom icon
* Multiple badges
* Configurable icon label text
Please send an email if you are having a issue or have a suggestion before leaving a comment/rating. Thanks!
This application does not poll your email account for changes but instead listens for changes to the unread count making it have a minimal impact on battery!
Currently not supported on Honeycomb tablets!
There is currently a issue regarding Droid X and 2.3. Droid X users will not be able to buy before I fix this!
How-to use a custom icon:
Place the icon in a directory named gmailunreadcount on the SD card. The icon should be in jpeg/png/gif format and be 72px for hdpi, 48px for mdpi and 36px for ldpi.
Please see Android icon guidelines at http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/ui_guidelines/icon_design.html
* The custom icons will appear after the regular icons.

Great job updating. Took me a little while to figure it out but it does work with nested labels and long as you enter the custom label in with the right format ("top-label-nested-label"). Tapping on the shortcut even takes you right there. Awesome stuff!

Yeah! Works with new / latest Gmail app. Decent config options. Unfortunately, it's slow to update. HTC Incredible.

When the free version stopped working, I bought the paid version and it doesn't work now either. FIX IT. It's been days, and tons of users are upset. I wish I could get a refund and rebuy it when it's fixed.

Purchased this version after Gmail update problem was fixed. Its useless due to 30 plus seconds to update! Today displayed '-1' count!!!

Unread count lags behind application notifications for new mail by a considerable time. If the Gmail app knows, why can't Unread know as well?

Doesn't give accurate message count. Sometimes doesn't even show you have unread mail when you in fact, DO. Needs another update, but hasn't happened.

Old version stopped working correctly so I updated to this version. Installed fine and pretends like it works but it either acts like theirs unread messages when theirs not or their are unread messages that don't show up. Sad this doesn't work because I loved this app! HTC Incredible

This is an amazing widget by design but recent development seems stunted. Where is the option to only show unread for instance. Feeling a bit cheated

I hate to reiterate what everyone else is saying, but the widget is not refreshing promptly anymore. Good luck wrestling with the new Gmail.

Emailed developer 2X - no reply or fix. Count almost always inaccurate. Samsung Galaxy S (Fascinate)
