Google bigs up iOS Gmail app, leaves room for fat fingers of iPad-fondlers

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Google has updated its rinky-dink Gmail app to make it easier to navigate on Apple's fondleslabs.

The ad giant has finally squirted the iOS version with a full screen, portrait view of a user's stream of emails.

Those who prefer to scroll through their messages while holding their iPad in the landscape position, meanwhile, will now see a left hand navigation bar that offers a "single tap" between inbox categories or multiple accounts, Google said.

Before now, composing messages on Apple's fondleslabs required squinty-eyed behaviour because the window offered by the Gmail app was pretty inadequate.

Google has now added "extra room" for peeps to tap out emails with ease, apparently.

The company teased that it had additionally squeezed some other iOS 7 "visual updates" into its app for both the iPad and iPhone. We suppose you'll have to download the thing to find out what fun stuff awaits. ®
