Gmail on iPad mini dock

The Gmail app for iPad and iPhone has been updated today, and added the ability to open links directly in 3 leading Google apps: Google Maps, Chrome, and YouTube.

Today’s update is Version 2.2.7182 of the Gmail iPad app. Here’s the short but very sweet change list for it:

– YouTube, Google Maps and Chrome links go directly to the app instead of the mobile web, if installed. You can turn this off using the in-app settings.
– Added support for signing out of a single account instead of having to sign out of all accounts at once.

You can turn on or off the option to use each of the 3 Google apps in the app’s settings with just a quick tap. The default has them all on.

Gmail Use Google Apps

This is great news for users of iOS and GMail – since Apple still does not allow us to choose our default web browser or Maps app.

The new version is available now – here’s the App Store link for GMail. It’s a free app and a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
