Bad news for Gmail users on iOS. Google has just announced that it will be ditching support for the Exchange ActiveSync protocol next month. Exchange ActiveSync is a XML-based protocol, developed by Microsoft, that allows the synchronization of email, calendar, contacts, and other data between servers and mobile devices and is the easiest way to sync your Gmail account with your iPhone. Google announced on their blog that this service will be removed on January 30th next year. » Google Will No Longer Support Exchange ActiveSync For Gmail Next Month

MailWrangler is an app which enables a user to add their GMail accounts (standard and Google Apps For Your Domain) which they could load and switch between them quickly. It embedded Webkit in to the app and logged you in to the accounts automagically. Normally to check multiple Gmail accounts in mobile Safari you would have to log in and out of all of the accounts, typing the username and password for each. Using just the Apple Mail application you aren’t able to see threaded views, your google contacts, archive (quickly), star, etc without going through the hassles that are present when using Gmail’s IMAP on the iPhone. » MailWrangler rejected entry to AppStore
