Native GMail App for iOS Devices is Out: UPDATED Google Pulls the App for Errors

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?
