Google has launched an update to their Gmail client for iOS devices, bringing some improvements that users had been seeking. When Google’s Gmail app made its way to the Apple’s App Store, bloggers immediately dismissed it as (and let’s be perfectly honest here) a big mistake for the search engine giant. The original Gmail app missed tons of features when it officially launched on the iOS platform, including system notifications support and other nice features Android users enjoyed.

This new update finally adds support for Notification Center, a new “Send-As” feature, and persistent login as well. Google also claims that users will be able to modify their notification alerts on the iOS settings menu, allowing users to customize how you will like for notifications to be displayed.

Gmail for iOS is available now as a free download on Apple’s App Store.
