Google has finally updated its Gmail for iOS application with several much needed features. Jason Parachoniak, a Google software engineer, said the latest update includes full Notification Center integration with banners, alerts and the ability to view Gmail messages on your lock screen. The notifications are also now 5x faster than the previous version of the application.
In addition, users can choose which Gmail account they want to send a message from. A user simply needs to navigate to Settings > Accounts > “Send mail as” and then he or she will be presented with a list of the available Gmail accounts. Finally, Google said that it has fixed an issue that constantly logged users out of their Gmail accounts after a certain time period had passed. Gmail will now stay logged in as long as a user wants it to. The free update is available from the iTunes App Store now.
