Gmail 2.0 for iOS Just Released, Adds Multiple Account Support

Version 2.0 of Gmail for iOS is here! The new look is great and all, but what I’m really excited about is the ability to use multiple accounts. Which means I can finally turn off all notifications on the regular mail app and move it to my Unused folder. That was one of the last few items left on my “Make iOS perfect” list. Still up: allowing me to make Gmail the default mail client.

Unfortunately, my iPhone is teasing me. It shows the update is available, but when I click Update, I get an error message saying it is no longer available. I assume this will be fixed soon, but in the meantime, getting it directly from the App Store worked fine for me.

    It might be pathetic, but this is truly exciting to me.

      Same here. I got very excited when I saw this.

      The Verge doesn’t really like it: http://www.theverge.com/2012/12/4/3728548/gmail-2-0-ios-hands-on

      I’m not bothered by the niggles mentioned in that review. I think it’s a big improvement, and I’m confident Google will continue to improve the UI, especially as the recently-acquired Sparrow developers dig in.
