Gmail App Updated: Is It Finally Any Good?
The Gmail app for iOS, that was not well received initially upon its release, has just been updated. Some of the new features include custom signatures, vacation responses, improved labels (including nested labels), and also a new mail notification sound to help users be more aware of incoming emails. You know, because considering the app notifications still haven’t improved, they’re hoping the sound will help alert you. But wait! There’s more! [caption id="attachment_255506" align="aligncenter" width="225" caption="Scribbles for Gmail"][/caption] Gmail for iOS now has Scribbles. Scribbles allows you to open up a screen and draw or paint with a variety of brushes and other tools. You can then attach these to emails. That’s a neat feature, huh? It was clearly better to implement a fun drawing tool instead of something useful like multiple accounts, right, Google? Keep up the good work. The Gmail app is available for free in the App Store.
