If you’ve been avoiding the Gmail app for iOS because it looked nasty on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus display, you’ll be pleased to hear it has now been updated for the larger screen sizes.
I love my iPhone 6 Plus, but a lot of iOS apps not designed for its 5.5-inch 1080p display look just awful when they’re blown up. The Gmail app was one of them, so despite being a long-time user, I decided I’d live with Apple’s built-in Mail app for a bit until Google got around to rolling out its update.
Fortunately, that didn’t take anywhere near as much time as I had anticipated. Less than three weeks after the new iPhones made their debut, the search giant has now rolled out a new Gmail app — version 3.1415926 — which sports an overhauled design that looks great on the bigger Retina HD displays.
Not only is the app sharper all over, but it takes advantage of the extra space by allowing you to see more of your inbox and your emails. Everything from navigating your messages to reading and replying to them is much easier, and of course, you get the latest keyboard rather than an old one expanded.
It’s not quite perfect just yet, however. Features like a unified inbox are still missing, unfortunately, but if you were happy with the Gmail app before, you’ll be just as happy with it now. If you don’t already have it installed on your iOS devices, you can download the new version now from the App Store by following the source link below.
