Pure messenger : now support POP3 and IMAP

Big news for Pure messenger widget.

It supports Gmail, SMS, POP3 and IMAP messages now (may be Facebook and Twitter messages later).

Support for POP3 and IMAP was difficult because default Google Email client doesn’t offer external database read API (ContentProvider).
I didn’t want to develop my own email server checker, so, I decided to modify Google default email client to add this possibility (joy of open source).

This is exactly the SAME CLIENT (same abilities, same defaults … but I don’t want to MODIFY it, just add this feature).

To conclude: you have to INSTALL, CONFIGURE and USE this modified email client to enable ‘Pure messenger widget’ POP3 and IMAP messages reading.

This modified application is available on the Android market as ‘Email client for Pure widget’ (FREE) or here :

Google email client is open source, so I publish the modified sources :

As usual, if you have any problem, mail me.

Warning: don’t ask for any email client evolution/modification, I don’t want to modify this application.
