Gmail for iOS gets updated

Google released an update to its Gmail for iOS app today. While the Gmail app has often been panned for not being as integrated into iOS as the default mail app, a lot of its fallacies have more to do with the Apple mobile operating system’s restrictions than any fault of its own. In any case, some of the new changes will go a long way in alleviating some of the problems iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users have with the Google app.

 

One of the key improvements is the rather basic feature of saving image attachments in the iOS photo collection. It seemed to be an annoying oversight on the part of Google that has been done away with at long last.

 

iPhone and iPod Touch users are in for a much improved scrolling experience too, doing away with the frequent stutters that were synonymous with the app till date. Apart from the above changes, there were a few bug fixes that weren’t elaborated upon, but all in all this should lead to a much improved Gmail experience for iOS users.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The link in the tweet led to the official Google+ page of the Gmail team, and they had the following to say:

“Gmail for iPhone improvements:
Today we released version 1.3 of the Gmail app for iOS.  We've made a bunch of under the hood changes to improve animation, scrolling, and responsiveness on the iPhone and iPod touch.
You’ll notice that many events in the app are just a little bit faster and smoother. Buttons respond to presses a little more quickly, scrolling is smoother and new views transition faster.  With this update, we tried to make it a little better with every touch.
We’ve also added one popularly requested feature - when viewing a picture attachment, you can now use a long press (touch and hold) to save it to your photo library. Gmail for iPhone improvements
