    Gmail App Attachment Handling

    Not sure if I am losing it or what, but I thought you used to be able to download attachments in the Gmail app. Now, all I see is the 'Preview' option.

    Can anyone else confirm this one way or another?

    Regardless of my memory, right or wrong, where the hell is the 'Download' option?

    Annoying and retarded to have Gmail app if you are forced to go to the browser to download an attachment. Renders the app useless except for providing notifications...

    Ok, I'm not losing it!...Yet

    Looks like you only get a download option in the Gmail app, if the attachment is a picture (jpg for sure). Anything and Everything else only has the Preview option. To download non-pics, you currently have to do it through the browser.

    Very UN-Cool...

    Seems many others are a bit perturbed by this as well:
    Gmail Attachments - Google Mobile Help
    Tip: How to download attachments from gmail mobile app - Google Mobile Help
    Gmail Android Attachments - Google Mobile Help
    Google Mail / Android / HTC Hero / Saving attachments ????? - Google Mobile Help

    This has been an issue for a loooong time. Serious foot dragging by Google for something seemingly so basic.

    Anyone else have creative ways of dealing with this or know where/how to push the Gmail Mobile developers buttons???

    I don't think I've had to deal with this yet..

    But that does sound slightly inconvenient.

    I'm not sure harassing devs is going to get you anywhere though.

    Maybe an e-mail to google support?

    I would love a portal where one user could just go suggest a feature/enhancement and subsequent users could vote or add/or pledge support for it. Then, the feature with the most interest/support could be prioritized. Right now, no one seems to have very good user --> developer support channels.

    I should go copyright that idea, before it catches on

    Don't know if you've checked out code.google before, but might want to see what they have going on here:
