    I get lots of email on my iPad Air, both work and personal.

    I use the Mail app that came with my iPad for private and the Gmail app for business use, that way things are neat and sorted.

    I love the Gmail app which give an alert immediately email is received. The Mail app does not do that, only gives the alert when I open the app.

    Am I doing something wrong or is there another app out there similar to Gmail that I can use to get these instant alerts.

    I do like the Mail app that came with the iPad, but will have to check out the Mailbox app. However, syncing up 5 email accounts again won't be fun...

    Thanks for the tip on the Mailbox app, going to give that a try. I also use the default Mail app for work and the Gmail app for personal.

    Mailbox app is limited to gmail. I like Boxer & CloudMagic best. However, Microsoft Outlook is quickly becoming my go-to email app.

    Mailbox supports both Gmail and iCloud.

    I use "myMail" on tablet and phone. It quickly collects all the letters from all mailboxes and there are no problem with synchronization. It allows you to go on links in the letter without opening the browser. At the moment, for me it's the best.

    On my Mac I usually use "AirMail 2".

    The Microsoft Outlook app for iPad and iPhone is quite good. I never liked the default mail app...and I've had issues with notifications as well.

    Spark by Readdle is looking to be a great email client.

    I contacted Readdle, the maker of Spark. They explained that the way their email fetches messages and uses the badge-count differ from the likes of Oulook. They also promised to have a functional badge in the future. I can't say I understand their answer but, regardless, until the badge-count works I'm not drinking this email's koolaid.

    They just updated Spark a couple days ago, the badge app icon works a lot better now. Usually the only time I see an issue with it now is if I delete email from my Watch. Honestly, even with the badge app icon still being worked on it is my favorite email client so far.
