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

    If you do configure Mail to work with Gmail’s IMAP, configure your folder settings so that mail gets handled the same way as the webmail client.
