GPush is live on the App Store once again.

The long awaited Gmail Push Notification Service is not coming from the search engine giant and creator of Gmail, Google, but from Tiverias Apps: a non-related company specializing in productivity enhancing applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Tiverias Apps have released a statement saying that “GPush is the missing link between GMail and the iPhone. For the first time, receive instant Gmail message notifications”. The application was released on the App Store earlier this month but was taken down just hours after its release due to server complications. Tiverias have subsequently fixed the problem and have used this downtime to address other issues and concerns with the application. The downtime serves as both a fix and an update.

In essence, the application will mimic what it is like to receive a text message, where a user is alerted and a notification is shown on the front screen displaying what the message says. Several applications already take advantage of push notifications, but none have been posted to the App Store that allow push notifications of incoming mail.
Received a promotional code for it yesterday, I'll have a review within the next few days.

I've tried this app. It is good but not as good as I would like it to be. For some reason I wouldn't solely rely on that app. Sometimes it doesn't notify me

Yep, this is happening to me too. Major disappointment. I've un-installed it and turned Fetch back on.
