And here we are again with the most significant updates to popular or relevant apps from the App Store! Let’s take a look at them.
The world’s most popular email client is bringing to its applications (both iOS and Android) several of the visual changes it has received on the web over the past year – all in line with Google’s “new” visual language, dubbed Material Design 2.
The changes are subtle and will not make anyone feel in a different app, but they bring more white spaces and less information density – in fact, just like in the browser, it is now possible to choose between three models of information density for those who like to see more things at the same time and for those who prefer cleaner looks.
The animations also received news, now more subtle and more based on the laws of physics in the real world. It is now easier to switch between accounts registered in the app – in the new Gmail, this task can be performed in the search bar, and no longer in the sidebar. The update also includes the spam alert introduced in the web version a few months ago.
The new Gmail for iOS and Android is slowly being released in App Stores around the world, and is expected to reach all users over the next few weeks. Did you like it?
Meanwhile, the official app for Apple Support it also gained news – specifically, in its lower bar, which replaces the “Account” tab with a new search tool which makes the task of finding a specific tutorial or article much simpler.
To access your account now, just touch your user icon on the “Discover” screen.
Finally, one of the App Store’s best-selling games brought interesting improvements to gamers around the world. Version 7.30.0 for iOS brings as main novelty the support to joysticks and MFi controls for iPhones and iPads, providing gaming sessions with much more control and precision.
The update also includes some bug fixes and minor interface improvements, such as updating some buttons that appeared at a lower resolution than the rest of the graphics.
