This used to be the top Gmail notifier, but the developer has become lazy. The program hasn't worked in months. All that is needed to fix it is to change the RSS feed, but apparently the developer doesn't care. The least he could do is release a version where you can change the RSS feed yourself, so we wouldn't have to wait for him.

Works very well. The only feature I'd like to see is to have gCount automatically reset the new mail indicator when I use the "open inbox" command.

It's just checking to see if a new version is available (grabs the file at http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~natan/gcount/versionlist.xml ). You can turn this off in the Preferences if you're uncomfortable with it.

Works well with a clean, unobtrusive interface. The best gmail status menubar icon I could find. Works great with Growl notifications, even.

Great little app. It doesn't hog my CPU. Stays at 0% activity most of the time, goes to 0.05% now and then. Goes up to about 50% for a second while it checks for mail.

More importantly if you set gCount to the default mail application in the preferences of Mail.app you get mailto: links working. Pressing a mailto: link will open a new gmail compose window!

Would be nice to see unread messages and icon instead of only one or the other.

Great work!

I gave this app a 5 for ease of use, and a 3 for value. Althought it is great to have this app to check your gmail account, it seems like a waste of space if you also have a pop/imap which gets checked by some other app.

Suggestion: Would be great if gcount would check imap/pop and gmail altogether. I think it would soar to new levels with those features.

What do you think?
