An updated version of the Gmail app for iOS has been released at the beginning of this month. The 1.0.2 version still comes with some limits like the fact that multiple accounts are not supported. There’s no Notification Center either. It does come with some good things, though. One of them is related the fact that the error users dealt with upon startup in the old app has now been fixed. So, here’s more about how you can use the updated version of the Gmail app for iOS:
1. Before installing the new version, you will have to uninstall the old one.
2. Get the updated version and log into your account. When you launch it, you will get directly to your inbox. To reach the menu, just hit the Menu button.
3. Unlike the iOS native mail app, the updated Gmail version will not allow you to archive or delete a message by simply swiping on it. To do this, you will have to check the box of the message by tapping it and only after that select to delete it or archive it from the menu that will appear.
4. Next to the Delete button, you will see a triangle icon. Just tap on it to get more options like you see in the image below.
5. To see your new messages, you will just have to pull down on your inbox. With the updated version of the application, you will have the possibility to see only the unread and important messages, something which was not possible with the native app.
6. The attachments feature gives the Gmail app a plus. Multiple files can be attached to an e-mail by simply tapping the paperclip icon for each file you want to attach.
7. With this version of Gmail for iOS, you can search your chat history. All you have to do is to tap on the magnifying-glass icon and enter the search terms.
The app version for the iPad brings a similar layout the only difference being that there are two columns instead of one.
