Gmail Applications Hits v2 – Adds Multiple Accounts Support Amongst Other Things

One of the most used applications on anyone’s phone has just gotten an upgrade. The new version 2 brings support for multiple accounts within a single application as well as support for Google Apps email, thus making the additional ‘Mail by Google’ application redundant.

Apart from the above, the update also brings:

  • Support for offline browsing, you no longer need to connect to the internet to navigate through the application.
  • Smooth scrolling makes an appearance and hitting the right side of the D-Pad scrolls multiple lines downwards to what would have been the next screen.
  • In the settings, a new box has appeared that allows for the application to notify the user about new mail – not sure how this works as there is no auto retrieval setting.
  • The right softkey now defaults to ‘Hide’ instead of ‘Refresh’.
  • Support for more than one draft on the mobile, they are stored separately for each account.

As you can see switching between accounts is easy, just navigate and click on the other one and you will be presented with the inbox from that account. There’s still no sign of a native S60 client though, so in the meanwhile go upgrade.

  1. It’s funny because the new version of the Gmail app for Blackberry has auto-retrieval (you can’t turn it off) so I’m going to test the S60 version.

  2. Test has been completed. It does have auto-retrieve. My N95 vibes whenever I get a new email. Say good night Nokia Email, looks like you’re usefulness has come to an abrupt halt

  3. I never got around to using the old version as I had my gmail apps for your domain account setup using IMAP in the default s60 client, but the new gmail app is so speedy and has the gmail-specific options that IMAP doesn’t, so I think I’ll be sticking with it.

    Here’s hoping they add audio alerts to the next version…

  4. Oh and does anyone know if there’s a way to force this app to autostart when the phone is turned on?

    They also need to fix the compose method so you can choose people/email addresses from your device’s local contacts when compose/forwarding an email.
