gmailiconThe native Gmail client for iPhone and iPad has been released:

Waiting. Walking. Watching TV. Working out. Winding down. Waking up. We check email pretty much everywhere these days. And when we do, we want easy access to our important messages so we can respond quickly and get back to life -- or slinging birds at thieving green pigs.

With that in mind, we’ve created a new Gmail app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. We’ve combined your favorite features from the Gmail mobile web app and iOS into one app so you can be more productive on the go. It’s designed to be fast, efficient and take full advantage of the touchscreen and notification capabilities of your device. And it’s one more reason to switch to Gmail.

The app has several noteworthy features including push notifications for new messages; easy photo uploads; on the iPad, a similar side-by-side split view for reading an inbox and message at once; and more. A native Gmail app was rumored to be near completion earlier this week.

Update: A number of readers are reporting that the app has a significant bug related to push notifications and is giving errors to users upon installation.

Update: Google confirms the bug and has pulled the app until it can be fixed.

It will probably be in beta until 2017.

If this is a sign of what android is like, I am glad I didn't switch.

Lol, leave it to google to release a non-finished app. Seriously? How hard is it to actually make sure the "public" version is really ready without major bugs. Do they not run the app before they submit?

I thought we already had a native Gmail reader. It was the built-in mail reader. Sorry, but I can't get too excited about yet another redundant app.

anyone getting a notification error of "no valid 'aps-environment' entitlement string found for application" when you first start it up?

basically, it seems notifications are broken for it. Great.

phew, so it's not just me!

So, how in the world did THAT kind of error/bug make it through testing and the app store approval process?
