Google has announced the introduction of a new interface in Gmail for iPad that seeks to take better advantage of the device's large screen. In addition, it offers improvements in usability and multitasking.
“If you hold your iPad in landscape mode, you'll immediately notice a new navigation bar, which lets you quickly switch between inbox and categories, or between multiple accounts, with a single tap. To help you get through your faster email, you'll also see a new message counter for each category, ”published Carmen Wilkinson, Software Engineer.
When you return to portrait mode, Gmail for iPad now offers a full screen view of individual messages and better UX for composing messages.
