Gmail App for Android Updated with New Features
Today’s Gmail 2.3.2 update brings better “Priority Inbox” support; allows you to send from any address setup in your Gmail account (which comes in handy if you’re using Gmail to aggregate messages from other POP3 and IMAP accounts); gives you the ability to switch between reply, reply all, and forward while you compose; respond to messages inline; and some bug fixes.
I’m particularly impressed with the ability to change your reply to a forward or “reply to all” while you’re writing your message, rather than before you start writing your response. The “Send As” feature and the addressee box could use a little more hinting as to which both of them are (“From:” and “To:” labels perhaps?), but they both work very well.
If you’ve got automatic updating turned on, your update should start to come down any time. If not, head over to the Android Market and grab your update now!
This update comes hot on the heels of yesterday’s Google Apps updates, but we still haven’t seen the new vector-based Google Maps 5 update that we’re all waiting for.
