CNET Editors' review
Although Google has introduced its own solution for pushing Gmail messages to your iPhone's in-box, this application still has plenty to offer. GPush alerts you to incoming Gmail messages with a red icon badge, a chime, and a semitransparent alert window that reads the sender's name and the subject line (you can change these in the Notification settings.) The alert bubble presents you with two options: to close the notification, or open the GPush app to view the new message in GPush's Gmail in-box, albeit rather slowly. Since GPush is giving you access to Google's mobile Gmail site for iPhones, you'll be able to do anything with that e-mail that you could do from the Safari browser. The notification bubble and quick link to an in-box are not offered as part of Google's push solution at the time of writing.
When it comes to performance, at least as far as our iPhone is concerned, GPush finds new messages faster than Google's push service about half the time. While the new Gmail in-box feature is exactly what we asked for, having GPush open to the Gmail in-box tab took longer than it should. We hope to see this speed up in a future release.
Note that your phone frequently switching between Wi-Fi and 3G data could disrupt GPush's service. During these moments of instability, GPush will queue the new messages for notifications. When the iPhone regains its service, GPush sends out only the most recent notification, an Apple limitation to keep alerts from flooding your screen.

GPush is the missing link between GMail and the iPhone. For the first time, receive instant Gmail message notifications on the iPhone. For Best results, place the GPush app icon above your mail icon - this will allow you to quickly open your mail app if new messages come in through GPush.
BlackBerry became very popular, in part because it offers remote users "instant" e-mail; new e-mails appear on the device as soon as they arrive, without the need for any user intervention, in what is referred to as push email. For the first time, using GPush, iPhone users will be able to receive their GMail new message notification instantly and no longer have to wait up to an hour to be notified of new email. Push email has the added value of reducing battery consumption considerably. GPush even lets the iPhone user choose how to be notified of new email. Your options include having the phone vibrate, ring, display the email message on the standby screen just like an SMS , or simply have the GPush icon show how many new messages are unread.

"Needs a little improvement... but well worth the price."
Version: GPush 1.5
The notifications are blazingly fast.
Some people may have privacy issues with authorizing another company to have your google password, though i solved this pretty easily. See below.
The new interface is good for checking; still prefer mail app for sending, since can do attachments.
App is very nice way to do a function clearly lacking on the default mail app. The better sound notifications also help.
To allieviate my privacy concerns, I created a second account to forward my real gmail to, the added a filter on the 2nd acct that if it came from my primary, to delete it. The split second it is in there is enough for Gpush to send me the popup, but since it is gone from the server in a flash, I am more confortable.
