current state of gmail labels on blackberry is absurd

Currently there are two gmail solutions for blackberry. "Gmail App" from google, and "advanced gmail plugin" from Blackberry. Neither is sufficient for any gmail user, and both are necessary. If you want to apply labels to messages, you can't use the gmail app. If you want access to labels from archived emails you can't use "the plugin.". Gmail has 3 main features that distinguish it from other email applications: threaded messages, archiving, and labels. I don't see how either of these solutions seem adequate to anybody. Is there anyone out there who has come up with a solution besides using an Android phone?

Re: current state of gmail labels on blackberry is absurd

you can look if there is an IMAP client for BlackBerry that can convert GMail's labels into dynamic search folders (like what Mozilla Thunderbird does on a PC or a Mac).


For my part I simply use https://mail.google.com/ .
