Get notified of new GMail on your Sony Ericsson LiveView. This is a LiveView *plugin*. Works even for newer android versions! (As the other "gmail for liveview" is no longer supported in newer android version, and my Japanese isn't too good, this is my replacement.)

Reads your mailfeed, and notifies you if there is an unread mail with a newer date. Notification contains number of currently unread mails, the name of the sender, subject and a summary of the mail. Also support Google Apps for Domains.

SimpleGmail uses your inbox by default, but can use any label. You can also read from all unread mail (by using label "unread").

Note: Although the 1 minute interval is workable, it does tend to use a bit much battery. Good thing for testing, but you might want to push it up a bit higher than that :)

If you use multiple accounts you will do multiple requests (bandwidth) and get multiple announcements (CPU), so it will obviously cost more battery.

I'd love some feedback: I've added a quick page a kinda unrelated site (one for another app of mine), but please feel free to comment (or ofcourse rate the app :) )

If you have trouble, you can use the "SimpleGmail Tester" app provided. You will simulate your liveview, so you can check if it might be your username/password or your connection that is bothering you.
PLEASE don't just leave a comment "its broken, fix it" as a review, I'm glad to help, but I need more info. Mail me, or check my site!

    This plugin works but causes heavy battery drain and consumes a huge amout of mobile data. 56 MB within two days is not acceptable.

    It works perfect for normal account with just simple password access. I did not managed it to work with account that has 2 step verification. Generated application specific password is always rejected

    None other apps worked for my galaxy note. Liked the test operation.

    It's probably something I'm doing wrong, but I can't get this to work with either of my accounts, and the tester application just hangs and needs to be force closed.
