Today we released version 1.3 of the Gmail app for iOS. We've made a bunch of under the hood changes to improve animation, scrolling, and responsiveness on the iPhone and iPod touch.
You’ll notice that many events in the app are just a little bit faster and smoother. Buttons respond to presses a little more quickly, scrolling is smoother and new views transition faster. With this update, we tried to make it a little better with every touch.
We’ve also added one popularly requested feature - when viewing a picture attachment, you can now use a long press (touch and hold) to save it to your photo library.
Thanks +Arsham Skrenes, for the comment. I have 2 gmail accounts and I'd like to be able to toggle back and forth between them within the app. So far as I can tell, that is not currently possible, but hopefully will be included in a future update (I'm looking at you Gmail team).
@jeff hosking, I set one account up on the standard iphone mail app, and one in the gmail app. Not ideal, but its nice being able to tell via notification tone, which email account just received mail!
I'll try it again, but my personal favorite is Sparrow. Awesome features! Granted.... Google purchased Sparrow, so there may not be anymore updates forrthcoming, but at my last use the Gmail app still didn't have the features, ease of use, or just pure coolness factor of Sparrow!
Gmail is crap when it can't handle extra loads on Macs. Mine is locked solid these past two weeks. If it wasn't for Sparrow mail I'd have been rightly banjaxed. So feck-off Gmail and fix the real problems you are patently ignoring and cut out your pussy-footing about with buttons . . .
So rather than giving us multiple account support, which many people have been asking for since day 1 and would be the difference between being a curiosity and a usable app for a large percentage of users... you decided to make it animate prettier? Good job on the feature prioritization, guys.
I can't figure out why anyone would troll iOS/Mac/Apple posts like their lives depended on it. I have better things to do than troll Android/Microsoft posts. Do you need a job? Sorry, I only hire out with Apple users.
Dear +Gmail engineers, PLEASE add an "email this post" option to posts within iPhone, since if we WANT TO SHARE a post with someone NOT on Google Plus — we should be ABLE to share that. Who knows, they might join as a result... Now, you DON'T ALLOW THAT — WHY?
For all those that asked about multi user support: it is not available in the Gmail app (yet), but it is available in the Gmail web app (just point your mobile web browser to mail.google.com). From there, you can quickly switch between accounts.
Rather than creating Gmail app for more platforms. I would suggest 'Google' to revert Gmail UI to old interface if they aren't able to make better UI. OutLook.com new UI is much better but i can't switch to it :( As Gmail is one of my primary email address for personal and business communication.
I wish they #Gmail could hear me this time. Thanks.
