Always include:

Device: iphone4
Carrier: AT&T
Country / Language: USA English

How can I setup multiple accounts in the gmail IOS app? Is this not possible? If so, it's not particularly useful for me.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Radionick 11/2/11 10:26 AM
I agree, I have a personal and work gmail account. Accout switching is a necessary feature that works great on the android Gmail app and need to be implemented into the IOS version as well.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? dpmccabe 11/2/11 10:29 AM
I can't see any feature, either. I have a personal account and a work account, which makes this app useless for me. Looks like I'm sticking with the Apple Mail app.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? djcesar 11/2/11 11:18 AM
i agreee
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? johnny.mendel 11/2/11 11:19 AM
Same request here. I have a personal account for friends and family, another account for work and business associates, and a third for junk mail, etc.  Same as above. If I can't have more than one account, then I'll stick with Apple's Mail app.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? BrittanyBee 11/2/11 4:01 PM
Hi folks, 

Thanks for sending your feedback about multiple accounts access. We're always interested in hearing your ideas so that we can make your Gmail experience even better. I'll make sure that the team hears this suggestion. Thanks!

You mean you *don't* support multiple accounts?  

Well then, that just ended my interest in this app.   Seriously, in 2011 how do you not support multiple email accounts?  I can't believe this didn't ship with it.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? yanks19 11/16/11 4:19 PM
Requests: multiple account support, custom notification sounds, working home screen integration. Thanks
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? DSSK 11/17/11 3:49 PM
yes please, I recently switched from android to iphone and really miss the multiple gmail connection, mail app is okay!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? rafi_ 11/19/11 11:32 AM
Multiple accounts! A must feature. I have my personal Gmail account and another account with Google Apps as my work mail. 

Oh well.. Back to the bundled lame Mail app..
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? smsmyth 11/23/11 8:08 PM
Wtf no multi account support ;)
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? swrobel 11/27/11 9:33 PM
Another user of the app who absolutely needs multiple account support (including apps accounts)
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? mrjmetz 11/30/11 12:09 AM
Another sad iMail user, wishing he could be using multiple account inbox with Gmail app on my ipad. Please fix!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Tbauer1367 12/5/11 8:22 PM
I cannot tell you how important this feature would be. For my work, Gmail is fantastic, but not being able to do this like I do on my android device kills the gmail app completely.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? halburgiss 12/10/11 3:24 PM
OK, long time Android user, and am dumbfounded that this feature does not exist on ipad. I'll have to say ignoring the ipad seems really, really stoopid. 
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? kcgreene 12/19/11 2:57 PM
+1 for adding this feature soon!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? apvonkanel 12/27/11 9:40 AM
At least now I don't feel like an idiot anymore.

Another user requesting multiple account access. Uninstalling app until multiple account access is added, because it's useless compared to iMail.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? dhoedeman 1/17/12 6:43 AM
This really is a complete joke. I loved the gmail app on my android, but this is basically non-functional on my iphone. Pretty inexcusable oversight on their part.

I wish iMail's search function was a little better, but I'm basically forced to use it because if this awful flaw in gmail's app.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? htctouchsprintwm6.1 1/22/12 7:14 PM
Switched from android to iphone, most google apps arent designed as good for iphone as they are for android (for obvious reasons), wish to have multiple switch accounts possible in gmail, also would wish to have more google apps available on adroid to be availabe on iphone such as the upgraded google maps thats on android, google navigation, google music, google radio, google sky etc etc.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? zhuzhuxia 1/26/12 2:37 PM
Google, please add this feature as soon as possible. It's definitely a must feature! 
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? ianriensche 1/26/12 9:42 PM
I'm with you all on this iPhone Gmail app. I'm stunned that Google still hasn't added multiple switch accounts to it.  And the longer this train goes on w/o that feature the more stunned I get.  Not about to give up my iPhone, so like the rest of you I'll have to go back to my bundled mail app. Ptooey on Google.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? txhorn99 1/29/12 8:50 AM
The fact there's a GMail app for iOS is positive, but considering this is Google's official GMail app and it doesn't even provide what should be considered BASIC functionality is very frustrating and disappointing.  You can switch accounts on gmail.com and through numerous 3rd party GMail web apps, but Google doesn't provide this functionality in their own app???  I'm sure it's not difficult to do - make the GMail address at the bottom left a toggle like it is on the web app port of the 3rd party apps.  Google - shame on you for not making this part of the app from the get-go.  Correct this ASAP!!!  I use the native iMail app for my work Exchange account, but I'd prefer to access my 2 GMail accounts separately.  For now, I'm using the iMailG HD app - it's not preferred and it's simply a skin over the GMail web app & doesn't provide push notifications, but at least I can switch accounts!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? allen78704 1/30/12 6:55 PM
I used to login to my Gmail account through the "Google" app on my iPhone.   When I clicked on the Gmail "app" inside the Google app, it gave me an interface that looked almost exactly like a web browser Gmail page.   Everything worked the same way.   I could send "from" multiple email addresses that I had as POP or IMAP in my Gmail account, and all of my auto-fill options worked for email addresses I had sent to before, etc.    It wasn't as user-friendly an experience as the Mail app on the iPhone, but it was a good workaround.    I upgraded to the iPhone 4s and installed the Google app and all the sudden when I click on the Gmail "app" inside the Google app it forwards me to the App Store to download the Gmail app.   I was actually excited that Gmail had created a separate app for Gmail and expected it to be possibly even an upgrade from the one that was embedded in the Google app.    It's HORRIBLE compared to the other one!   What is Google thinking????   Am I being punished for using an Apple product?    I've spent thousands and thousands of dollars on Google adwords and all kinds of other Google programs over the years, so I hope that is not the case.   

Why in God's name would Google NOT have a multiple account options that mirrors the online Gmail system?   I HAVE to send from different email addresses depending on who I receive email from and now I have to do this crazy IMAP "add a comma and the other email addresses you want to send from" workaround that doesn't automatically recognize WHICH email someone used when they sent it to me.   So I have to open each email, check which one they sent it to, then make sure I remember to CHOOSE that email address in this crazy setup that someone figured out how to do, and the do it again if it's a thread of emails back and forth between me and someone.   

All that has to be done is to include a "From" line in the app and program it to choose the SAME accounts that Gmail allows in the POP and IMAP systems in the online browser-based version.    How hard is that Google?   This is the company that supposedly has the most brilliant programmers in the world?   Are you kidding me?    You should be embarrassed to release this piece of junk Google.   
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Burghlar 1/31/12 11:42 AM
I can't believe that this app does not support multiple accounts; it is a necessary feature that is available on the Android version, so why would Google not include it in the iOS version? In addition, I'm astounded by Google's canned "thanks for your comment" response. This is clearly a major flaw in the app that should be addressed promptly, not just taken under consideration.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? joseph.gurreri 2/3/12 9:37 AM
Here Here!  I need multiple FROM address flexibility.  If Gmail could do it on the app, I'd abandon the iMail native app for Gmail app so that I could use my rich text signatures for each of the emails that I've set up on my Gmail PC interface.  HELP GOOGLE!!  What's going on? 
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? momo43 2/14/12 12:16 PM
Yes please, please add the ability to switch between separate gmail accounts. 

And even better, non-gmail accounts... (like the Mail app that comes native on the iPad, but better!)
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? vyoungs 2/24/12 7:20 AM
Google employee any update on this situation?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? freemason241 2/27/12 7:50 AM
Here's the fix. Just did it and it works.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? o m r 3/12/12 11:42 AM
seriously... c'mon google
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Wrateman 3/13/12 11:17 AM
Add me to the list of users who need/want this.  The iOS Mail feature is brain dead on its own in that you can't assign different signatures to different mailboxes.  You basically have one default mailbox assigned, and all emails from your various mailboxes go out w/ that.  

I have seen utilities like Signature, but it's a very clumsy implementation.

So right now I'm running my single main Gmail account from this Gmail app, and monitor my multitude of other Gmail accounts from iOS Mail, but don't respond from them.  Instead, I wait until I'm online, or if it's real urgent, go through the tedious process of changing my default Mail account.

Like the Android users, I have been using the Gmail client on Blackberry for years, and have a difficult time understanding why the iOS client took a step back.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? obender 3/16/12 5:07 PM
+1 here on multiple accounts support, it is just sad :(
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Muter 3/23/12 7:13 AM
Do we still not have multiple accounts in Gmail app on ios? The app is a no go without it.
Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? eggpeter 3/23/12 10:35 PM
It's been months and google is still unable to do something that other small companies can do.
It's just pathetic.
Use sparrow and you're able to use multiple senders
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Wrateman 3/28/12 10:25 AM
iLounge just reported that Gmail for iOS now supports multiple sender....doesn't say anything about multiple signatures (contingent upon mailbox chosen).

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? BrittanyBee 3/28/12 10:53 AM
Hi all, 

Just wanted to update to let you know that you can now use Custom Send As with the Gmail app for iPhone and iPad. We are working on adding multiple account support for the app, but I did want to update this thread to let you know about the new feature. 

If you already have custom address configured in your account, you will now see a "from" field when you compose a message. You can tap on that field and select the address you want to use.  

We posted about the feature on Google Plus as well.

Google needs to get working on the multiple accounts.  I cant take the Iphone mail app anymore.  Please hurry
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Gersomvg 4/14/12 10:41 AM
Yeah, I came from android but I'm still a huge fan of Google. I would also like to see multiple account support!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? odqan 4/19/12 3:52 AM
Same here, that's the missing feature I'm looking for, the rest of the application perfectly fits what I'm looking for!

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? theofear 5/15/12 10:10 AM
my main gMail account is google apps account. waiting for a fix so I could log in my mail via gmail app for iPad.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Stephen Joseph 5/23/12 8:30 PM
The problem with sticking with the Apple app (or any other IMAP program) is that it doesn't understand labels. Interpreting labels as folders results in confusion when I'm not using gmail.com or the Gmail app.

The Gmail app needs to support multiple accounts.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Stephen Joseph 5/23/12 8:44 PM
Just found an app that costs $.99 which supports multiple accounts. It's called Safe Gmail. Before I buy it, I want to know if it shows the labels like the Gmail app. I can't tell from the sample pictures.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? PNaw10 7/6/12 11:29 AM
It's been more than 3 months since you said you are "working on adding multiple account support for the app," but I don't see any updates on this.

Just today, I switched from an Android device to the iPhone.  Lots of learning, but the HTC-made Android phone I had was *terrible* and everyone told me to get an iPhone instead.  Now I'm trying to set up various apps and learn the differences between iPhone and Android.

I'm shocked to see that the Gmail app doesn't allow multiple accounts!  As someone else said months ago, it's 2012 - there's no excuse for lacking this feature.  Especially since the Android version of Gmail has already had it for quite some time.  How hard can it be to just port it over?  I know it may not be something programmers can just do in the blink of an eye, but it's been MONTHS since people started requesting this feature.

I have a personal account, a business account and a college account.  I loved having all 3 at my fingertips on the Android-based phone (when said phone was actually working, and not randomly rebooting or vomiting app-crash error messages at me).  I'm shocked it's not available on iOS.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? The C Man ((mobile laureate)elder advisor) 7/6/12 11:59 AM
PNaw10,

Try asking Apple why they do not allow it.

Try a Blackberry instead and have anything up to 10 accounts delivering directly to your messages folder plus a separate folder for each account plus separate Contact and Calendars.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? berelw 7/10/12 8:02 PM

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Veenified 8/8/12 2:35 PM
Any news on implementing Multiple Accounts support?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? mmshrwd 8/14/12 10:28 AM
Account switching wouldn't be enough for me.  Ideally, I'd like to be logged in to multiple accounts with a unified inbox.  At the bare minimum, I need notifications to be active for all accounts simultaneously with the ability to switch between inboxes with a couple clicks.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? JB NGM 9/14/12 11:40 PM
When will multiple account log-in be available?  

Why do we have to ask for this?  

Google... are you great?

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? iphonegeek5430 9/17/12 12:44 PM
So if you were all really working on multiple accounts back in March and still don't have a solution now being Sept 17th, I think you really need to consider firing your iOS development team and find some iOS developers that are little more competent.  Obviously a tongue-in-cheek comment but really?!?!?!  This is a no-brainer feature in all email clients and not only you don't release with it but you can't come up with it inside a 7 month time frame?  Kinda ridiculous don't you think?  I'm sure there are circumstances that I'm not aware of but this is disappointing to say the least.

Still waiting for multiple accounts........  :-/

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Evan Gaito 9/19/12 10:22 PM

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? BrittanyBee 9/20/12 8:15 AM
Hi there, 

Thank you for the feedback. Multiple Accounts is definitely a feature we want to support. We will let you know as soon as we have more information.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? relish27 9/21/12 5:17 PM
Oh man!  I just got my new iphone5 today and am so disappointed to discover that Gmail with multiple accounts is not just part of the Gmail app!  I never considered that it wouldn't, seeing how I've been using multiple accounts on my Android (Google G2) for a long time now.  I use Google Apps for my work email and Gmail for my personal mail... really need the multiple accounts feature right away.  I hope that you are able to make this a built-in feature very soon!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Ben Smaby 9/22/12 7:23 PM
I finally got sucked into buying the iPhone (iPhone 5) expecting that Google would have 20th Century up-to-date compatible technology with Apple products by now.. Oh how I was wrong! Google I truly do love all that you do as I support an enterprise Google Apps environment at my work, but this is something that you really need to catch up on ASAP! You can however use the new built in mail client that apple has integrated in IOS 6 with multiple Google mail accounts, but it is NOT the same thing! The Gmail App makes me feel like I'm at home minus the multiple accounts!! Please make a quick effort to fix this issue soon as it looks like it has been lingering around here for quite a long time now! Thanks Google!!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Clemente Owle 9/23/12 9:00 AM
This App seems to work perfectly, except for you can have only one account on it. syncs over my macbook mail app, online mail from gmail and my all IOS devices.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? jenniferdawn73 9/24/12 7:40 AM
I just upgraded to an iphone yesterday and am VERY dissapointed that I cannot use the gmail app to manage my mail as I did on my android. I have multiple accounts that I need to manage. I will be deleting the app unless I hear this is fixed?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? ahroon 9/26/12 10:09 AM
I also just made the switch from Android to the new iphone 5 and am totally shocked that the gmail app doesn't support multiple addresses.  I had looked into this before switching b/c it was so important to me, but must have misunderstood the ability to access multiple gmail addresses on the iPhone.  Thought it could be done through the gmail app, naturally, since I've been doing so for years on Andriod.  Accessing multiple addresses through Mail is not the experience I'm looking for.  Google, we love gmail, but we can't use it on our new devices.  Help us out!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? ahroon 9/26/12 10:12 AM
I should add to my post above that sending from an alternate sender doesn't solve my problem.  I need to keep my personal and multiple work email addresses in separate inboxes both for organizational purposes and peace of mind.  
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Kubes 9/28/12 9:25 AM

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? asamir 9/28/12 10:26 AM
Well, please, PLEASE DO. It is almost impossible to work w/o multiple account support. And since you guys bought Sparrow, nothing was updated ( iPhone 5 and Push Notifications ). It is rather bulky to have multiple email applications because Google is not adding multiple account support.

Today, the iPhone 5 support update came out and it's been nearly 10 days since the iPhone 5 was out. Nevertheless, the lack multiple-account support is literally killing us users.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? iphonegeek5430 9/28/12 10:52 AM
Un-bleeping-believable, yet another iOS gmail update from google today and still no multiple accounts!!!  REALLY?!??!??  Who is the genius over there making these priority decisions, hell I'd go without a full screen iPhone5 app any day over not having multuple accounts.  No iPhone5 full screen support=still can use it.  No multiple account support=worthless piece of software and unusable..  I'm speechless! :-/
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? thisisjess... 9/28/12 1:02 PM
Perhaps they are waiting to integrate sparrow since they acquired sparrow. I hope it happens soon though. Right now sparrow is $2.99 and does not support my iphone 5, gmail app is free, supports the full screen of the iphone 5 but does not support multiple accounts. which to use...
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Skylex77 9/28/12 4:57 PM
Yeah, Is necessary the Multiple account login in the app, I have 2 Gmail account, and 3 from Google Apps fromo my work, this app need and update :)
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? asamir 10/3/12 8:14 AM
Maybe they are going to add Push Notifications capabilities to Sparrow, which would be awesome... I am not the #1 fan of the Gmail App. The ONLY reason I use it is because of the Email Aliases, which iOS native Mail App does not support. Sparrow was THE BEST, if only it had Push Notifications... Oh well.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Mariohm 10/3/12 8:30 AM
Sparrow doesn't support push notifications. Another genius piece of software :(
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Yaroslav Romashko 10/3/12 11:11 PM
Guys don't you think that Google just don't want to make multiple sign in for Gmail from iOS. They probably have more interest if we shift from from iOS to Google Android OS...
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Yasin Soliman 10/4/12 10:11 PM

What an absolute joke. This is enough to make me want to stop using Gmail. The app is virtually useless without this feature. My work mandates the use of Google mail and I cannot easily switch between my person and work accounts.

Overall I am blown away that it would take them a year to add a feature that is considered standard. Brittany, why is it taking this long? Can you please give us some real information? You have obviously huge demand for this feature.

I just switched from an Android to the iPhone 5 and I really miss the multiple gmail accounts. With this thread it sounds like everyone is wanting that feature. Is anyone able to have multiple accounts yet or is the gmail app going to allow iPhone users to have that feature just like Anroid users?

thanks for the help!

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Yabadabidu 10/25/12 1:24 PM
We need this feature. Why is it to difficult to add this multiple accounts to the Gmail App?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? B.Carlson 10/26/12 9:09 AM
I believe I have found a slight work around. It has some frustrating drawbacks but they are minor. This method allows you to archive, delete, & use multiple accounts.

1.
set up a Gmail account via this method: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=77702. Go back to your "Mail, Contact, Calendars" section in settings, select the above gmail account thing you just created, and make sure "Archive Message" is turned on. This will allow you to both delete and archive a message. In your mail you can swipe to archive, hit edit and then archive, or hit edit and move the message to the trash to delete. Why you can't just swipe and get an option to either delete or archive is a mystery to me.

2.
The above method is in place to have the ability to move messages to the trash and archive. The method mentioned here is so you can write messages from multiple accounts. Here is the method: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://modernerd.com/post/535350679/solved-gmail-ipad-iphone-and-multiple-from.

In the mail application hit the top left button which should say, "gmail,"  or "Mailboxes." Continue hitting it until you don't have an option to go any further. Make sure you select "All Inboxes," which should be the very top option.

Here is the only downside I have found for this method. The mail icon on your screen will now show DOUBLE the unread messages you actually have in your gmail. I am guessing this is because it is reading from the same account twice. Though this is annoying to look at, especially for someone like me who doesn't like clutter and gets stressed at the thought of mass amounts of mail in his inbox, when you open the mail app there won't be double the mail in there. In fact, when you open the mail app it should say "All Inboxes (#)." That "(#)" will be the true amount of unread messages you have in your inbox and it should be half of what the mail app says on your homescreen.

I hope this helps. Hopefully Gmail will get their act together and fix this problem. Unfortunately, since they have android and there is competition between them and Apple I doubt it is high on their priority list.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Tjctim 10/28/12 3:06 AM
Dear frustrated,
    I am just like all of you. I recently switched to iPhone from android And have all of my email accounts with Gmail. I have Four of them. When I got the Gmail app and realized that you can't have multiple accounts I was not happy. So I did some searching. I read all the previous comments in this forum, and wonder why no one ever mentioned the app called I iMailG. It's made by Google and supports multiple email accounts. You can also search the web, use your calendar, Google plus, and more all from this app. If you're frustrated with the Gmail app try I iMailG. I believe you'll be satisfied.

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Greg Sobiech 11/23/12 8:41 AM
Hi please. Having easy ability to switch among accounts in the app is a must.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Wrateman 11/23/12 8:48 AM
And now that the iOS 6 Mail client supports it, we _know_ it can be done...let's go Google!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Veenified 11/23/12 9:11 AM
Given how our company uses Federation for authentication into our company email (offered by Google), we need to use either the Gmail iOS app or the web application. Neither of which support multiple accounts (at least the mobile version)... this is a NECESSARY feature.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Kevin Keast 11/27/12 10:32 AM
This is absolutely ridiculous!  
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Jay Anderfuren 11/27/12 5:11 PM
As an android phone user, iPad user, and business owner (whose mail domain is run in gmail) I just discovered there was an iOS app for gmail. I am also shocked and dismayed that multiple accounts are not available without signing out and back in. I will leave it installed just so I get notified of updates, but I certainly can't use it. Being relegated to the iOS mail app is a terrible thing.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? globart2133 11/30/12 9:09 AM
+1 for me please.  I've had to delete the Gmail app and rely on others to get multiple Gmail accounts.  Not great.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Bill Dami 12/1/12 6:02 AM
+1!! Sucks to have to use the stock Mail.app to get multiple accounts + imap push for my personal and work gmail accounts when the Gmail app is a much better app sans that one feature.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Rayorg 12/3/12 12:57 AM
Yes, PLEASE!!!  Definitely need multi account functionality.  I just switched to iOS and really miss my Gmail app I had on my Galaxy.  
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? I know why 12/3/12 1:23 PM
I know why there is no multiple account support.  Think of this question: would Google prefer we purchased Android phones or iPhones?  The answer is of course Androids.  So, make it a crippled version on the iPhone, so some people choose an Android instead.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? asamir 12/3/12 1:47 PM
You probably hit the nail on the head... I've been thinking about that too.

Also when Google saw how awesome Sparrow is, they purchased it. At least Sparrow now has iPhone 5 support. What I am currently doing is using Mail.App to let me know I have emails, and then Sparrow to actually read & respond to these emails.

Do you have an estimated date for this?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? BrittanyBee 12/4/12 10:13 AM
Hi there, 

We just released multiple accounts on the Gmail iOS app. Just go to the app store to update. Check it out and enjoy!

Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? William Añez 12/4/12 10:32 AM
This is the best news you can give me today, we are just migrating all our corporative email to Gmail ;)
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? asamir 12/4/12 10:36 AM
HALLELUJAH, HOLISH*T!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Juzer Yamani 12/4/12 10:38 AM
We are unable to update. It keeps saying "Item no longer available" when we click on the 'update' button in App Store.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Veenified 12/4/12 10:48 AM
!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Jahnna Randall 12/4/12 11:32 AM
This is odd... I got a notification that gmail had an update. It said new feature multiple accounts, super excited I'm sure like everyone else in this group will be, however when I clicked on the updated it said "no longer available" what happened, is the update no longer?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Yaroslav Romashko 12/4/12 11:40 AM

Finally!! THE DAY HAS COME!! Just in time before the end of the world! ( :
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Smaby 12/4/12 11:42 AM
Just keep retrying.. it will eventually go.. I know it is odd, but it will go!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? iphonegeek5430 12/4/12 11:43 AM
I had that happen as we'll.  what did work for me though was to search for gmail in the store and update it from its store page instead of the update tab - that worked for me.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Smaby 12/4/12 11:48 AM
Oh by the way GOOGLE, GOOD JOB! This App looks very clean and works great!! Although it took a while to add such a simple feature.. I do understand you had many requests for other things too!
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Jeremy Bear 12/4/12 11:55 AM
Reason enough to delete the app.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Jahnna Randall 12/4/12 12:00 PM
Thanks it worked! Searched it instead thanks for the help! How you guys liking the app so far?
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Veenified 12/4/12 12:13 PM
Liking it so far. Reminds me of the Google Plus app.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? spoovatouvious 12/4/12 1:33 PM
any reason this has been limited to 5 accounts?  I have more than that unfortunately....
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? spoovatouvious 12/4/12 1:37 PM
Also, when you have signed into multiple accounts, how can you just sign out of one (the only option I see is "Sign out of all accounts")
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? JeanJason 12/12/12 4:25 PM
Is it possible to see one inbox for all of my Gmail accounts? I have two accounts and its a hassle to switch between the two, to view new mail.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? Trevor Richardson 12/15/12 6:44 AM
+1 on this. Would like to be able to see multiple accounts in one interface.
Re: Multiple Accounts in Gmail IOS App? (0_o) 12/26/12 10:30 AM
I am able to sign in with my gmail account. However when I try to add my Google Apps email account, it routes me to my work page (Google Apps) and makes me log in again. After logging in I can access the Google Apps (gmail, docs, etc) but that account is not added into my iOS Gmail application..
