Birdseye Mail, the aptly named Gmail client for iPad that offers a visual overview of your inbox, has just received a significant update. The latest update to Birdseye Mail, which was released last January, delivers several notable improvements. One improvement is support for interactive mail tiles. Similar to those in Incredimail, Birdseye Mail's mail tiles let you take a quick peek at emails by scrolling through them directly from the inbox view. Another improvement, and one that is said to be the most requested, is support for labels. With this new feature, you can now easily categorize your emails and sort them into labels. Just drag on a mail tile to bring down the categorization options. The new Birdseye Mail update also includes easier autocomplete for contacts when composing a message. It also brings better Smart actions, or options that let you perform tasks specific to email type. Smart actions and the app's other key features are highlighted in the new welcome email that introduces Birdseye Mail to new users. Optimized for iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, the new version of Birdseye Mail is available now in the App Store for free. The app currently works with Gmail and Google Apps accounts only, with support for application-specific passwords in Google's two-step authentication process. Birdseye Mail is created by DE-DE, the same developer behind Pling, an app that "adds voice to instant messaging, thereby making it more personal."
