Google has just updated its popular Gmail app for iOS devices with a number of new features. Most importantly, version 3.14159 (get it?) offers integration with the Google Drive cloud storage service. That means users can now save attachments directly to Google Drive for access anywhere. It can also help save space on your iOS device, which is always at a premium. Also, Google Drive files can be inserted directly into messages. Finally, along with the ability to change a Profile picture, a new account management option allows users to select which accounts they want to be visible in the app. Any hidden accounts will still remain on the device so they can be accessed later. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch, Gmail can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. The Google Drive app is also universal and can be downloaded for free. Before the most recent update, version 3.0 arrived back in March. That major version ushered in background app refresh and other improvements.
