Gmail Update Highlighted By Edit Mode For Multiple Messages
Google has just updated its Gmail app for iOS with the addition of two nice features. First up, version 2.1 of the app ushers in the new edit mode that allows a user to take action on multiple messages more quickly. Selecting a message in the inbox enables the mode. With the new actions bar, users can then choose to do things like archive and delete multiple messages. Pressing cancel exits the edit mode. Also new is the addition of a swipe gesture. As pictured, instead of having to return to your inbox, you can swipe right or left to plow through your messages. Google also promises the usual dose of performance improvements and bug fixes in the update. Gmail is a universal app for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded in the App Store now for free. While I’ve sometimes strayed and tried out other Gmail clients like Mailbox, I always seem to return to Google’s official app. And these two new features will definitely make it easier to navigate through the disaster also known as my inbox.
