A new look for the Gmail app on iPad

         

(Pass-posted on the Gmail blog.)

Tablets are great because the large screen not only gives you a more immersive experience but also extra room for serious multitasking. And with today’s update to the Gmail iOS app, you’ll be able to do even more with your iPad.

If you hold your iPad in landscape mode, you’ll immediately notice the new left hand navigation bar, which allows you to quickly switch between multiple accounts, or between inbox categories, with a single tap. To help you get through your email faster, you’ll also see a new message counter for each category.

For those preferring a more focused immersive experience, hold your iPad in portrait mode to get a full screen view of individual messages.

In addition to improvements to scrolling performance, there’ll also be extra room to compose your messages in full screen.

Lastly you’ll notice several iOS 7 visual updates on both iPad and iPhone. You can download the app right now from the App Store.
