A year or so ago, an app for Gmail was finally released for the iPhone and the iPad.
It was terrible.
In response, an embarrassed Google rushed out several updates to try to make things right…and it didn’t help much.
Today, the slate is being wiped clean as Google announces GMail 2.0 for the iPhone and iPad…and it’s not terrible! In fact, it’s downright snazzy.
The new app features a lot of things Apple users have been begging for:
- multiple account support
- the ability to accept Google Calendar appointments from email
- Google+ integration
They also gave the interface a new look with new animations…it feels like they got it right this time.
UPDATE: We’ve discovered that the app has a problem with @toast.net email accounts. However, the app works well with Google powered TOAST.net sub-accounts and all Google Apps for Business accounts. I’ll keep you posted with updates.
