- V3 Apps
Google has updated its Gmail app for the iPhone and iPad, giving users a slew of new features, including support for multiple accounts.
Version 2.0 of the Gmail app for iPhone and iPad provides support for up to five Google accounts, and comes with new time-saving features, such as search, autocomplete predictions and a battalion of new animations.
“You'll get a totally new look and feel, plus a bunch of improvements like profile pictures in messages,” Matthew Izatt, product manager at Google wrote on the company's Gmail blog.
The updated app also makes it easier for users to reply to Google Calendar invites and even interact via Google+ should they feel the need.
Gmail for iPhone and iPad v2 comes just a day after Google updated its Gmail app for Android handsets.
That update included enhancements such as automatically fitting messages to the handset's screen size, the ability to attach photos and videos from within Gmail, and previews of larger photo attachments. Those updates are available for anyone with a handset running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and later.
Users of older Android handsets will have to content themselves with the performance improvements also bundled in to the update.
Gmail for iPhone and iPad is available via Apple's App Store. The Android version is available via Google Play.
Google's first attempt at launching a Gmail app for the iPhone got off to a sticky start, after it was removed from the App Store just days after launching, so that Google could fix a notifications bug.
