I install gmail Web App. A Gmail icon appears in the unity bar, but it doesn't show unread emails.

What should I do to show number of unread emails?

The problem appeared for me even in Windows. Maybe try to contact the publisher of the app. – Atladica Nov 17 '12 at 20:47

It shows the unread mail only when it opens the Gmail web. It's useless. It isn't more than an launcher for Gmail Web. – Juan Simón Feb 12 '13 at 18:14
