Most of us would know about Gmail app for mobile phones.. It came out first as a java application but works smoothly on most phones
The app has evolved a lot over time.
Interesting features in the current version of the application include
- Multi Account support – you can use the single installation to access gmail and ur google apps for domains email.
- New Basic Offline feature which lets you read your recent email offline
- Offline Drafts – Save email as mobile drafts even if you loose connectivity
- Access contacts with autocomplete
- Jump to Gmail labels
- Search email
- Loads of short cuts
- View attachments including photos , word and pdf files
Well its one of the applications you MUST have if you are a Gmail user ..
Rita has a video review of the app in action on the Nokia E71
Some things we don’t like in the app are
- Can’t view password protected attachments
- Cant change from address when composing an email which is possible in web version.
- No bandwidth usage indicator .. Google Maps has it .. why not Gmail ?
- No background alerts
