Six months ago, our team set out to completely rebuild the Gmail app for iPhone and iPad to give you you a faster, sleeker, and easier experience on iOS. The result? Version 2.0. With version 2.0 of the app, you'll get a totally new look and feel, plus a bunch of improvements like profile pictures in messages, numerous new animations from swivels to transitions and infinite scrolling in the message lists.

The app also adds many new time-saving features. For example, when you search, autocomplete predictions will appear as you type, shaving off precious seconds (and typos). Plus, you can RSVP to Google Calendar invites as well as +1 and comment on Google+ posts directly from the app.

Last, but certainly not least, we've added a feature many of you have been waiting for: multiple account support. You can now login to up to five Google Accounts from the menu and switch between them with a couple taps.
Gmail for iOS can be downloaded free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Note: Some users have reported issues downloading or updating to the new Gmail app, but Google promises the issues are only temporary.

bit annoyed with the 5 accounts limit, but yay multiple accounts.


How many Gmail accounts can 1 person possibly need?

I get my gmail mail in the Apple mail app (along with Yahoo & Hotmail). Seems to work fine.

If I had a gmail app I would be going to two places to get my mail.

Yeah, I'm getting told that "The item you tried to buy is no longer available". I guess I'll try again tomorrow.

Seems it's been pulled. Update shows up but when attempting to update the App Store gives the error that "The item you tried to buy is no longer available." Seem to remember the original Gmail app being pulled right away in similar manner.


No, it hasn't been pulled. IF you can't install via Update, just delete the App and reinstall it.

Not me. I'm done with Google. All moved over to iCloud, and setup gmail forwarding so as not to miss anything.
