Gmail Mobile 2.0 Released
Google has just released the latest version of their mobile GMail client, Gmail Mobile 2.0. This time they focused to make the experience much more faster, easier to use and more reliable for users.
It has been released for J2ME-supported devices like the Nokia N96, as well as BlackBerry phones. Gmail Mobile 2.0 is designed to be more reliable in low signal areas and provides basic offline support for phones like the Nokia N95, Sony Ericsson W910i, and BlackBerry Curve.
You can now log into multiple accounts (including both Gmail and Google Apps email accounts) at the same time. Overall new changes and features include:
- Overall performance improvement: You should experience significant raw speed improvement, smoother scrolling, and no freezing.
- Multiple accounts management: If you have both a Gmail and Google Apps email account, you can easily switch between them quickly. You will no longer have to use two different mobile apps to access personal and work emails.
- Multiple mobile email drafts: You can save multiple email drafts in your mobile phone, so that you can pick and choose what you would like to send later.
- Powerful shortcut keys: If you have a QWERTY phone, you can use shortcut keys. Hit ‘z’ to undo, ‘k’ to go to a newer conversation, and ‘j’ to go to an older conversation. See Menu/Help in the app for more shortcuts.
- Basic offline support: Can’t get a signal? Not a problem. You can compose and read your most recent emails even when there is no signal. Also, any outgoing messages will be saved in the outbox on your phone and sent automatically when you’re back in coverage.
Gmail Mobile 2.0 is available in more than 35 languages. You can download it by pointing your mobile web browser to the following URL.
