Google releases completely revamped v2.0 of Gmail app for iOS

by 14 comments

The previous Gmail app for iOS is the most famous Google-made app for iOS, but for all the wrong reasons. Although a lot of people did use it because it included support for push mail that the native iOS client lacks for Gmail, it was nothing more than a wrapper for the mobile web version of the service, which rubbed people the wrong way.

Enter v2.0. Google has revamped the Gmail client for iOS, which has reportedly been in works since the past six months. The new client looks nothing like the old one and is more in line with other recent iOS apps released by Google, such as Google+, Google Search, Google Drive and YouTube.

Recently, Chrome has been expanding its reach to mobile territory but growth has been slowed by its requirements – unlike the stock Android browser, Chrome runs only on Android 4.0 and above (and 2.3 Gingerbread still holds over half the market).

According to Net Marketshare‘s numbers, Chrome is the browser of choice on 4.03% of Android devices. Those Nexus devices that come with Chrome only probably helped push the numbers up. Read more »
