Google rolls out updated Gmail app for iOS

|June 26 2012 |Google, Appstore

Gmail for iOS gets an update, which was earlier cursed as being a bad app. Then it lacked push notifications, the support for iPad and several more. Now, app developer and Google's software engineers have taken care of all these weaknesses. The team has added complete support for Apple's Notification Center.

Search giant Google has added in this update the ability to send messages from alternate email addresses. It has also improved on the log-in experience for users.

With this Gmail for iOS update the Apple's iOS users can now choose for their messages being shown up via alerts, banners or displayed on the lock screen.

According to Google software engineer Jason Parachoniak in a blog post, the notification of the app is now incredibly fast, about 5 times faster than the earlier version of it.,

Last year the Android-esque Notification Center was added to the Apple's operating system through iOS 5.

Mr Parachoniak added further in his blog post, "If you have configured alternate sender addresses in Gmail on your desktop under Settings->Accounts->Send mail as you will see a From: option when composing new messages in the app."

It is also learned from the blog post that users can now stay logged in to the Gmail on their iOS devices as long as they wish.

Originally the Gmail app for iOS by Google was launched last year in November.

This month Google also announced of rolling out its new custom themes for Gmail.
