Hi Sven,

Do you have the preview pane option enabled? Any chrome extension relating to gmail?

Hello Sven,

If you're viewing gmail on your iPad, you wouldn't see the "TD Add" button. This works only if you're using Chrome as your browser (in a desktop or laptop) and have the gmail Chrome extension installed. Refer to this link for more details http://todoist.com/gmail

Chrome extensions are add-ins that you can install to extend the browsers functionality. Sometimes, installed extensions in the browser can affect Todoist's functionality so that's why I asked.

As for the preview pane, it's an experimental option in gmail that you can enable. Please see this link for more details http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/new-in-labs-preview-pane.html

There could be a few reasons for that, depending on how they are built, how they process emails, the language they are built on. We will of course look into finding a solution in the future if possible.

Looking forward to an update that supports the Preview Pane 'Lab' in GMail (the one by by Peter B & Michael K) - took me a while to figure out why I wasn't getting the TD button!
