The Updated Gmail App For iOS Gives You More Room For Multitasking

Saikat Basu 17-11-2013

Google gets an updated app for the iPhone and iPad. The latest design changes make it more suitable for iPad’s expansive screen estate. As Google says, it gives you a more immersive experience but also extra room for serious multitasking. The Gmail app takes full advantage of the two orientations – landscape and portrait — to give you a smoother workflow.


Holding the iPad in the landscape mode displays a new navigation bar on the left-hand side. The new navigation bar allows you to quickly switch categories as well as move between multiple Gmail accounts with a single tap on the icons. Each category prominently displays a colored message counter highlighting the number of unread emails that need your attention.


The full-screen space should be enough to go through your messages. That’s what you get by holding the iPad in the portrait mode. The developers say this full-screen view is a more focused and immersive mail consuming experience. The full-screen view is all the more better because it also gives you all that room for composing emails. A better scrolling performance rounds up the noteworthy changes for the latest iOS Gmail app.

    what I hate most in the gmail app is that I cannot change the default browser to safari as I use safari in all my pc, mac and obviously I love surfing much in safari in my iPad and its fast and sleek but I did keep chrome as an alternative literally just to sync with my pc's chrome... :(
