It's time to finally get a first-class Gmail experience on Windows Phone! The first app written and designed from the ground up specifically for Windows Phone, will be here soon. We are at the final stages of development, and we would appreciate your help with beta testing.

Please join us at https://groups.google.com/d/forum/metromail-wp-beta to receive all future announcements. In the next few days, the link for downloading the app will be available.

Why should someone use this app over the native client?
- First-class support for archiving, starred emails, and labels
- No more broken threads when replying to emails
- Proper search functionality
- Support for multiple From addresses
- Select a specific label (e.g. Primary) to display on the live tile
- Properly display long HTML emails

[IMPORTANT] Device requirements:
- Windows Phone 8 only; apologies to WP7 users!

MAJOR THINGS THAT ARE MISSING BUT COMING SOON:
- Push notifications
- Live tile support
- Handling attachments

Security & Privacy:
- The application only connects directly to Gmail servers (can be easily verified) and your password is never stored locally. It is as simple as that. The authentication process is no different than logging into Gmail through your device's web browser.

EDIT: Non-GDR2/3 users are now also welcome to join us!

EDIT2: The beta program is now closed. Thanks to everyone who has offered to help. We will let you know as soon as more spots become available in the future.

applied for membership. I hope you guys support the 'Reply-to' field and not reply to the 'From' address all the time (a.k.a 'Reply-to' overrides the 'From' field if it exists).

We will post the beta and related details to the linked group tomorrow.

We don't have final screenshots ready, but here's a sneak peak:

Of course :)

Looks great, can't wait to have it on my 920. Is the final version going to be free or paid? Also is starred option and attachments of all files available?

Edit: nvm the screen shot answered part of my question already :p

Damn, that looks really impressive so far-- can't wait to see more! This is the first attempt I've seen in a WP app to approximate those new separate inboxes Gmail has going on now.
