    Even sideloaded, Gmail won't run.

    There are two variants of Gmail, the new and the old, Standard and Basic HTML, respectively. Switch to the Basic HTML format. The new, Standard format has been a disaster. There have been tens of thousands of complaints about this. Do a search about the subject. This isn't a Google TV issue. It has affected all Gmail users. Many don't have a problem with it. Many do. It's free e-mail, so Google gets to do whatever it wants. Get the picture?

    I think the OP is talking about the GMail app. Guest is referring to accessing GMail through the browser.

    Having a working app would be nice because, to me, the browser is a PITA.

    Exactly! I thought mentioning the term "sideload" would be a clear giveaway lol.

    What would be the benefit of sideloading it - other than you just want to try it? Will the Standard view then function better??? If so, then I'll try it myself.

    This thread is in regards to the Gmail Android app. NOT checking Gmail through the web browser.
