We’re all familiar with how costly data can be on our iOS devices if we’re using them to get on the internet abroad with no access to a Wi-Fi hotspot. To prevent nasty charges, most of us turn off data roaming and avoid using our devices for the internet.

Remember that ‘fantastic’ native Gmail app that Google was on the ‘verge’ of releasing? They’ve done gone and released it, and it’s available now as a free download for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 4 or above.

 

We’ve yet to check it out, but here are some of the features in the App Store description:

● 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

As someone who has tried all the alternatives and made a conscious decision to live in Gmail on my Mac, a native app is fantastic news. I can’t wait to give it a try.

You can download Google’s Gmail app here.
