First Look: The Native Gmail App For iDevices [Update: Pulled For Repair]
Update: Google has announced on Twitter that it's pulling the app temporarily, while fixing the bugs. We'll let you know when it comes back. Moments ago, Google released an official Gmail app for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. Here's our first look at this highly-anticipated app. Both free and universal, the app’s main goal is to duplicate all the bells and whistles already available to Gmail customers who use the service through a traditional web browser. These include being able to read mail with threaded conversations, and organizing the emails by archiving, labeling, starring, deleting, and reporting spam. In addition, the app provides notification badges for new messages. Other features include:
