Question by Kimberly Noh /

I use Gmail for my personal and business email. I want to look up my emails on my iPhone, iPad, laptop and desktop. No matter where I check it, and I want it to update across the board. How can I do this? Is there a manual for the use of Gmail?

    Google has apps for email for most phone OS’s. Also when you enable an app to use Gmail, you allow access to your Google account, which begins the sync whenever you use the specific app. However, some apps have delays in their sync, such as a 15 minute push update on an iPhone for email. So, while it it possible to sync across phone, tablet, computer, it will most likely not be instantaneously.

    Google has a lot of info on how to sync across devices, as well as just “Googling” for the info.

    If you are using any device, chances are there is already a Gmail app on the device. If not you can simply download it from the App store on your device of choice. Supported by all devices and loved by all.
    Like the first commenter said, it is a web app and can easily sync your mail to all your owned devices.

    A point to note here is that if you are using an email client such as Thunderbird or Postbox to manage your email on your computer, check the setup so that it dosnt delete your mail from the server.

    Gmail is not a local drive it is served from internet so it does not matter whether you access gmail from computer or iphone it is already in sync..

    gmail doesnt need resync..everything is loaded to your device when you log in

    I believe all you have to do is make sure you have the app or way to check it, sign in, and have the devise remember your username and password. After you sync everything, as long as a you don’t delete anything, you should be good to go.

      There are are official GMail apps for desktops too, however they are installed in Chrome browser from the Chrome store. You can even use GMaill offline by one othe clients. You can simply do a search Offline Gmail or you can search GMail (if you do not need offline feature) in the Chrome Store.
