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.
