Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

XDA member Fixup just updated this useful tool based on ImapPusher-0.60 for getting push email in IMAP server (like Gmail) working on your Windows Mobile device.
This application runs like a push service and subscribes to IMAP IDLE commands to know when new messages arrive at the IMAP mailbox; then will tell Outlook to send/receive to get your emails in real time.

- Added a connection management service, XinConnManager.
