Released just minutes ago, Google has today pushed out its previously rumored GMail application for iOS. Announced via the company’s Official GMail Blog, as predicted, the universal application features full support for push notifications, photo uploads and a side-by-side inbox split view, similar to that seen in Facebook’s latest update to its own official iPhone client.
Waiting. Walking. Watching TV. Working out. Winding down. Waking up. We check email pretty much everywhere these days. And when we do, we want easy access to our important messages so we can respond quickly and get back to life — or slinging birds at thieving green pigs.
With that in mind, we’ve created a new Gmail app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. We’ve combined your favorite features from the Gmail mobile web app and iOS into one app so you can be more productive on the go. It’s designed to be fast, efficient and take full advantage of the touchscreen and notification capabilities of your device. And it’s one more reason to switch to Gmail.
Grab it now.
[Update] – As noted, it appears Google is having some trouble with the push notification side of things, with many users reporting the error “no valid ‘aps-environment’ entitlement string found for application” upon start-up. We’re sure this will be corrected by the firm, soon.
[Update 2] – The app has now been pulled.
