New Gmail version for the iPhone/iPod Touch
I’ve been using the Gmail app on my Nokia N95 for a few months now and its worked like a charm. There’s been a few network hiccups and sometimes the interface is slow, so I’ve pretty jeolous that iPhone and iPod Touch owners are getting a new mobile version of Gmail with Ajax. Its stated on Google’s blog that this new version has improved the user interface , include pre-fetchings and auto-complete features. It will also pre-load your most recent images, cutting down waiting time.
Auto-complete is another new feature that Google added. Now entering email addresses is a few key strokes away. According to Google, most email addresses in your Gmail should be 2 to 3 keystrokes away.
There’s a new software update for the iPhone. The next time you sync your iPhone with iTunes, your iPhone will be updated to version 1.1.3 of Apple’s software. It has a nice new feature — the built-in Mail app on the iPhone will now use IMAP to access your Gmail account, rather than POP, like it used to. IMAP is way better
