Google Brings Gmail iOS App Interface to Its Mobile Web App

by

Google has updated its Gmail experience when using mobile browsers like Safari. The company is aiming to replicate the experience users have using the Gmail for iOS app, updated back in December.

Since launching the rebooted Gmail app for iPhone and iPad in December (http://goo.gl/2m7pd), we’ve heard from many of you that you like the redesigned UI, along with new features such as improved search and integration with Google Calendar. Today we’re rolling out a similar refreshed look to the Gmail mobile web app as well as Gmail Offline (http://goo.gl/0f1ae) that includes many of these same changes. Try it out at gmail.com in the browser of your Android, iOS, Blackberry or Kindle Fire device

Funny how even Google themselves seem to prefer the design language they have on iOS over Android's.

They literally said they did with the new Google Maps, and now this.

I wouldn't be surprised if Android started looking like this. It'd be a great improvement IMO, and it's not really a copy of Apple's UI either.

or put their fetch settings to 15/30 minutes. Many of us don't feel the need to see our new email the moment it is sent and such 'slow' times are fine with us.


You did a survey did you? People had this feature and now they don't. Not sure why people would defend them for taking away something that just did not need to go, other than it being a way to get people to switch.

It's not a Apple/Google battle so much it is a platform battle. All companies these days want to try and lock you, as best they can, into their ecosystem. Amazon wants it. Apple wants it. Google wants. Microsoft wants it. Not saying we have to like it, but its the way the industry as a whole is moving.


If it's a platform battle, it's between IOS and Android. ie, apple v google. Hence, my point. Not sure what your point is.
