Google

So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

Alternatives?

I use Sparrow both on my Mac and iPhone. Works great with GMail's conversation-based workflow, and supports several feature like labels and the like.

Unfortunately they got bought out by Google right before they released the iPad version. It is now discontinued, but still available in the App Store(s) and still works great.
