Google updates Gmail for iPad, Android and iPhone
Google has adjusted the appearance of its email service, Gmail, for users who access their accounts via gmail.com on Android, iPhone and iPad devices
The minor changes alter how senders are added to messages, and do not affect the native Gmail apps that most users of Android phones send email through.
The move builds on Google’s decision to rewrite the code on which the web app is based so that it is easier to adjust in future.
This stage of enhancements allows users to simply type a fellow Gmail adopter’s username and the programme will now automatically fill in the rest of the address. Other changes reveals the list of recipients of a message more completely, so that individual addresses are easier to remove even if they are towards the beginning of a long list. Contacts that have been entered into a Gmail field are now also clickable boxes, allowing users to inspect their details more closely.
A list of top contacts has also been added, and the app now fills the entire screen. These features are likely to be particularly relevant to iPad users, who have significantly larger screens at their disposal.
The moves mean that the official Google Mail app now has considerably fewer features than the web-based version. Google has previously said that a new release, however, is in production.
