It shows the email sender, subject, brief snippet of the email, plus quick toggle to dismiss or open the mail in the inbox. In the preferences menu you can be changed actions when selecting an email. By default it opens in Gmail inbox, or change to open inbox in web browser or dismiss dialog.
Gripe Alert: unlike the popup feature of SMS Popup for text messages, Gmail Popup does not popup past the lock then sleep after a short while. It wakes the phone screen to alert you an email came in, however you must unlock the phone to see the popup. There are no reply features directly from the app or notification settings.
