Gmail app for ios updated to “Notification Center”

After a long wait Google updated Gmail app for ios. Actually it was a requirement because when Gmail for ios released it was a mess. Various key improvements like software Updations are done. Biggest improvement is done in field of its “Notification” Center. With this update you can now see your messages via banners, alerts on lock screen that hits your Gmail screen. These notifications are faster. Also login period is improved.

 “Plus, notifications are now incredibly fast – up to 5x faster than in the previous version,” Jason Parachoniak, a Google software engineer said.

Secondly you can use your alternate email for sending message. “If you have configured alternate sender addresses in Gmail on your desktop under Settings->Accounts->Send mail as you will see from: option when composing new messages in the app,” Parachoniak said.

This app automatically won’t log you out after certain period.

Earlier with the Gmail app you can read your mail with threaded conversations but all that mess has been updated.

You can download updated app for ios!!!
