The native Gmail application has made its glorious return to the App Store today, and we can safely say that the notifications bug appears to have been fixed which means that you should now be able to use the app as advertised.
On November 2nd, Google released its its highly anticipated native Gmail application for iOS devices. However, just a few short hours after the software made it to the App Store, it was pulled because of a pesky notifications bug was discovered. It was nice to see Google own up to its mistake and it’s even nicer that the app is back for consumption.
As a reminder, the Gmail app promises to perform a host of tasks to make managing your account easier.
Some of those things include:
- 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
The application is free and you can find it for download here.
