Google Upgrades Gmail for iPhone
As part of a Macworld makeover – coinciding with the annual Mac love-fest in San Francisco where the biggest Apple announcements are made – Google today announced a revamped Gmail application for use on iPhones.
According to Google, the upgrades were in response to user-requested features, notably pre-fetching (where email is downloaded automatically) and auto-complete (where words and addresses are finished with suggested letters as you type), and implemented with the AJAX web development tools.
With address auto complete, Google claims most email addresses can be completed within two or three keystrokes. With the preload feature, your most recent messages will already be loaded into your device, meaning no more long waits for the text to be revealed. Both are features that make us happy. After all, we're already accustomed to such functionality on our Blackberrys and our Palm Treos.
