Gmail App Gets Redesigned Interface and Multiple Account Support

by Marianne Schultz

When the official Gmail app hit the App Store last November, it struggled right out of the gate with a bug that broke the push notification feature, prompting Google to pull it from the App Store on its release day and then re-release it a few weeks later once it had been fixed. One year later, Google has busted out version 2.0 of Gmail for iPhone and iPad that adds several long-awaited features and updates the interface with a redesigned one that’s a little easier on the eyes.

The full list of what’s new in version 2.0 is as follows:

  • Multiple account support
  • App redesigned with a new, cleaner look
  • Search predictions as you type- Infinite scrolling inbox
  • Respond to Google Calendar invites inline
  • Interactive Google+ posts support
  • New welcome experience

Gmail now supports up to five accounts and I’m personally happy to see that it now works with paid Google Apps accounts as well. While I’m not sure I’m ready to step away from the built-in Mail app on my iPhone where I can access every last one of my email accounts at once, it’s nice to have Gmail as an option, especially since I can now use it for my primary work email account.

    But it doesn’t offer an “all inboxes” view like the native iphone mail app. Now with this Gmail, I have to open each account to see all the inboxes. If Google did not discontinue google sync, I would have stayed on the native iphone mail app!
