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?

Squeaky mail

Squeaky mail is the answer.

I quote them from the Android Play store:

"This is an email client derived from the popular, open source application K-9 Mail. The main difference between the two is that Squeaky Mail integrates with PGP KeyRing, a crypto provider. If you are a user of PGP KeyRing, this email client will integrate seamlessly just as K-9 Mail does with APG. Both the trial and full versions are supported."

Edit: I had forgotten to mention that I have disabled the default Gmail app. Useless for me.
