iPhone users that love using Gmail will soon be able to make it the only email app on your iPhone. Google revealed today that it has begun testing a new feature that allows users to connect third-party email services to the Gmail app.
Every week here at the Cult of Mac Store, we’re busy finding great deals on tech tools, gadgets, and courses. This round, we’ve got an email app contender for Outlook and Gmail, and an all-purpose, waterproof HD camera. Also check out the comprehensive course in the Microsoft Office suite, and a video editor packed with 60 video assets. So there’s something here for everybody, read on for more details:
If you have an email address, there’s a very good chance it ends in “@gmail.com.” Well over a billion people use Gmail, which claims more than 20 percent of the email market. Even though Mac users’ machines come with Apple Mail, many prefer to use Google’s email platform in their browser.
One thing Apple Mail users could dangle over the head of Gmail users is the ability to install Mailbutler, a plugin that adds a bunch of useful new functions to the Mac’s built-in email program. But with today’s release of the latest beta, Mailbutler finally becomes available for Gmail.
Google has updated its Gmail app for iOS to introduce anti-phishing security checks. The app automatically detects suspicious links in your emails, then warns you that they might be dangerous when you tap them.
