Google’s iPhone Gmail app ported to Windows Phone 8

It will probably be a cold day in hell before Google delivers a Gmail app for Windows Phone, but company EcoMerc has taken a novel approach to the issue, and has simply ported the code base of the iPhone app to Windows Phone.

The app, which due to its origin looks like a combination of an iPhone and Windows Phone app, supports most of the features found in the iPhone app, and in its paid version offers push support.

The app appears to work relatively well, but some of the controls are clearly designed for another operating system. If you however are desperate for at least some of the Gmail experience on Windows Phone, given Google’s horrible WAP Gmail page for our OS, there is currently no other way.

The app is Windows Phone 8 only.
