I installed a couple of the Google web apps in Ubuntu 13.04 just to try them. I had avoided them since release and was merely curious. However the only thing it installed was crap for Ubuntu One Music and Amazon instead of GMail and Google Calendar. Do they simply not work in 13.04?

Also I read that all they do is open that site in chrome. Is this true? If so it is one of the most idiotic features I've heard of. What is the value of a Gmail app that simply opens Gmail in your browser? All it does is save me an extra click, because I just open up Chrome then hit Gmail since Google is my homepage.
