Gmail has been released today for the iPad and iOS. It’s a native Gmail app and a universal app designed to run on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
Here’s some of the key features of the app:
With the Gmail app, you can:
● Receive notification badges for new messages
● Read your mail with threaded conversations
● Organize your mail by archiving, labeling, starring, deleting, and reporting spam
● Keep track of important messages with priority inbox
● Auto-complete contact names as you type
● Send and receive attachments
● Search through all your mail
We’ve also optimized the interface so you can perform common actions in Gmail with the lightest touch:
- Pull down your inbox to rapidly refresh if you’re eager for new mail
- Swipe right to view your labels without ever leaving your inbox
- Swiftly scroll through dozens of emails just by sliding your finger
I’ve only just installed the app a few minutes ago on my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. I got a notification error on both devices on first launch – but then carried on as normal, so I’m no sure what, if anything, is being reported as having problems in the error.
So far, as literally a 2 minute impression, I’d say I hope its functionality is great – because its looks lag way behind the built-in Mail app.
Here’s an App Store link for Gmail; it’s a free app.
