Google has announced via Twitter that their Gmail application for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been updated to v1.3. The update brings smoother animations, faster page scrolling, bug fixes and speed enhancements. In addition, Gmail app users now have now the ability to save picture attachments directly from the emails to the photo library.
Today we released version 1.3 of the Gmail app for iOS. We’ve made a bunch of under the hood changes to improve animation, scrolling, and responsiveness on the iPhone and iPod touch. You’ll notice that many events in the app are just a little bit faster and smoother. Buttons respond to presses a little more quickly, scrolling is smoother and new views transition faster. With this update, we tried to make it a little better with every touch.We’ve also added one popularly requested feature – when viewing a picture attachment, you can now use a long press (touch and hold) to save it to your photo library.
The update is available now in Apple’s App Store.
