Okay, now it has the ability to count unread mail in Apple's Mail.app, it is a wonderful, wonderful thing. I appreciate the invitations of Gmail I have had from various people following my previous comments, but I already have 2 very good eMail accounts, both managed by Apple Mail, and I don't want to confuse matters. This Widget is an imaginative and novel way of seeing unread mail. It is nicely presented, and just needs a little polishing off to be perfect. Specifically, when the Widget is "flipped" the vase image is cropped for a second during the flip animation. Only a small detail but it is attention to detail that makes a good product a great one. If possible I would also like to see a preferences for the colour of vase, and superficial stuff like that!

nice widget-very well done. but in my opinion, Tiger's Mail has a much better UI (way better than Panther's Mail) than gmail. So I'm sticking with Mail.

actually, you can do both. I use Apple mail to download my Gmail account via pop. Works beautifully, and all the messages are still kept on the server.

This looks like a very imaginative and beautifully designed little widget. But I don't have a Gmail account. In fact, I don't know anyone who does. I think a version of this that allowed checking of a POP or IMAP account (or just counted the inbox of the Mail.app) would be far more useful to most people.

Well then, you have just effectively admitted that you and your friends are 'out of the loop'. Lots of people have Gmail accounts. I've had mine for months now. And have a look here at all the apps for Gmail.

I have 50 gmail invitations - just drop me a line, and you'll get one promptly. I have my own host set up (obviously), and I STRONGLY prefer to do my email from gmail than ANY other app, even Apple's Mail (though I'm still playing with the Tiger version). An infinite amount of storage space, and the best UI I've seen.

Oh, yes, I'm considering supporting pop/imap in version 2.0, though it's a LOT more work, and makes for a much more complicated widget.

The widget's main page has a link to gmail, or just go to gmail.com. It is a free online web mail with, basically, an infinite amount of storage and the best UI I've seen for email anywhere, including desktop clients like Apple's Mail. You need an invitation, but I have 50 of them to give away, just email me, and you'll get an invitation promptly.

I would email you to get that free Google Mail account but I can not seem to be able to find your email address on your website.

my thought exactly...what is gmail? i know now, but why would anyone choose an application that had to be used with a completely separate from your normal email account? i LOVE this widget!!! and would love to see it upgraded so i could use it as the means to alert me when email's from my husband come in.
