Guide Review - Gee! 1.1.2 - Gmail New Mail Checker
Sporting a simple but surprisingly stylish round Mac OS X menu bar icon, Gee! lets you know about the number of unread messages in your Gmail Inbox. If fresh mail arrives, Gee! can even spin the icon for even more eye catching. Gee!'s menu gives a handy overview of the new messages (displaying the sender and part of the subject) and lets you open Gmail in your browser.
A few more links and keyboard shortcuts for Gmail actions might be nice. It is also a pity Gee! does not allow you to open individual messages specifically or deal with (delete) them right from the Gee! menu.
Still, Gee! is a wonderfully handy way to keep an eye on your Gmail Inbox.
