Google has launched a new update to its Gmail iOS app with a focus on the iPad screen size. Here’s what it looks like:
“If you hold your iPad in landscape mode, you’ll immediately notice the new left hand navigation bar, which allows you to quickly switch between inbox categories, or between multiple accounts, with a single tap,” says software engineer Carmen Wilkinson. “To help you get through your email faster, you’ll also see a new message counter for each category.”
“For those preferring a more focused immersive experience, hold your iPad in portrait mode to get a full screen view of individual messages,” Wilkinson adds.
There are some cosmetic updates specific to iOS 7 which apply to both the iPad and iPhone.
