Apple - two app recommendations please.

  MrNewName 16:07 16 Jun 11

I've been given an iPhone 4 and am pretty impressed with it!

Now I just need two more apps to complete my transition from my E71.

First of all, I need one that will display my upcoming appointments on the homescreen.

The second is an email client that will tell me when I have new mail in my gmail account.

I've looked in the app store but there are thousands so I'd prefer a personal recommendation.

You can add a gmail account to the built in Mail program.

The iCal can also be set to put alerts onto the desktop.

Thanks bremmer.

I have gmail added but I don't get notifications of new mail - is there something I should tick? A guide to setting it up correctly would be helpful.

I'll take a look at iCal and see what I find.

Hi Iphone is now able to receive gmail instantly with notifications beside the e-mail icon. When ios 5 comes out in the autumn notifications will be more advanced and will cover things like calender etc. even on the lock screen. To set up your gmail properly follow this
