Gmail To Be Available for iPhone Users, After a Four-Year Wait
After quite a long wait, it seems that iPhone users will be able to access Gmail accounts from their handsets. A recent report hints the good news for the Apple smartphone users. Will iPhone users finally have the freedom to use the official Gmail application or this is just another unconfirmed rumour?
Gmail App for iPhone: A Needed Tool
A real Gmail app dedicated to iPhone lovers, with all the benefits of Push Notifications will be included in the iOS 5 platform. The rumors say that the app is now in testing and waits for Apple approval to be included in the iTunes App Store. So, no more need for third-party apps to access Gmail accounts. The new Gmail app will make the best out of the iOS 5’s new highly praised feature, Notifications. Now users will be able to flag their messages and get notifications accordingly, easier than before.
MG Siegler reviewer hints that this could be the most advanced and the most appealing Gmail to be released on a mobile platform ever seen before. Enthusiastic users should expect changes including new Contact icons, better threading, an improved search functionality, already expected to be the most advanced available in the mail client. The integration of Google + is not at all impossible, since Apple approved the original Google + during this summer.
The source suggest that the Gmail app will be officially announced and submitted to App Store sometimes this week. But I don’t think Apple lovers should get their hopes up so soon, as we all know how the rumour mill can trick with us and deceive our expectations. It would appear natural that iOS user should have free, complete access to their Gmail accounts, if they have any, but it seems that Apple is trying all their best to keep user loyal and make them use their products and not desire what the competition has reserved for them.
