    So my old Android standard email app is now not happy sending emails through gmail. I have to lower my google account security to allow it to do this.

    So the easiest thing would be just to use the standard Gmail app instead. HOWEVER, my main issue with this app is it simply doesn't show the number of unread emails on its icon.

    I've looked around and cannot see a simple way of doing this... Seems you have to install a 3rd party app to add this feature?

    Anyone recommend an app?


    Note: Trying to do this on a Samsung S4 & Samsung S8

    Nova launcher provides this but its main features are a launcher though.

    Edit: Typos and grammar. Jeez I'm lazy.

    I did this, Nova + Tesla Unread.

    It's not perfect, but it does the job and is quite customisable.
