Google pulls support for native Gmail app on BlackBerry Starting November 22nd, Google will be pulling all support for its native Gmail app on BlackBerry devices.
If you already have the app, you can continue to use it, but it will be pulled from the market on the 22nd, as well.

Says Google:

Over this past year, we've focused efforts on building a great Gmail experience in the mobile browser and will continue investing in this area. Users may continue to use the app, if installed, however it will not be supported by Google.


The company will continue to focus on Android and will release a fixed product for iOS within the month, says the search giant.

Last week, the native app for iOS hit the App Store but was riddled with issues and was promptly removed.
