This has been rumored, wished for, and finally it has arrived. Google has released (and Apple has approved) a native GMail App for iOS devices. It’s not showing up for a search just yet in iTunes, but you can get it here. This is a universal App and is free for the downloading.
The highlights are listed below:
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
I haven’t tried this out yet but will give it a go when I have time. Meanwhile if you do, let us know your thoughts in comments.
Well, after a flurry of negative comments, many relating to a bug that didn’t allow notifications to work with the GMail App, Google has pulled the App from the App Store. Now where have we heard that one before?
