Gmail for iOS has just been updated to version 1.3, this time adding some simple yet important features. The first of which is smoother animations, with more refined movements throughout the application. The second new “feature” is that you can, finally, save photos that are attached to emails to the Photos application. That seems like a no brainer to me, but at least it’s finally here. This is the changelog from iTunes:
- Smoother animation and scrolling on iPhone and iPod touch.
- Save picture attachments to your photo library. Touch and hold an image to save it.
- Bug Fixes
As you can see there are also some miscellaneous bug fixes. Google looks like it is serious about trying to make this Gmail app your go-to application for email. That is of course if you only use Gmail and no other services. Since Google just bought Sparrow though, different providers may be included soon. If they start revamping the Gmail app with Sparrow’s features, it will definitely begin to take off. Be sure to check it out on iTunes if you are interested.
What do you think? Do you use Gmail for iOS? If not, was it for this reason? Waiting to see if they incorporate Sparrow’s features? Let us know in the comments.
