OK, I now understand that it does update. Still does NOT link to the actual message clicked on.
I paid for this app assuming that it would, at minimum, include the functionality of the stock Gmail widget in 4.1. What a waste of money. I get hundreds of emails a day, what's the point of scrolling through a list of them just to see a 2-line preview and then have to find the email again?
