If you haven’t noticed, Google has been busy releasing a barrage of new iPhone apps to the App Store; we’ve seen the launch of YouTube and Google Chrome to our handsets in the past few weeks, and now, Google has just released its update to the Gmail app, which now has functionality for the iPhone 5. But Google aren’t stopping there, they plan to release a Google maps app, and are even expanding on the web, with Field Trip,a travel companion.
But let’s get back to Gmail, shall we? Even though there may not be much more to add, it is nice to know that Google – despite its rivalry with Apple – still contributes to the App Store, and continue to improve our iOS experience. With Gmail’s latest update, you can see more of your mail, without scrolling down as much (if you’re using an iPhone 5, of course), plus the landscape keyboard has become wider. If you aren’t using a fifth generation iOS device, then you’ll find it difficult to spot any change whatsoever, unfortunately.
Google’s on a roll with its apps recently, and I really hope it doesn’t end soon, because, although I may not be a fan of its Android operating system, I do love Google, and I must admit, the apps it continues to develop are fantastic.
