gmailiconLast week Google announced an inbox redesign for both the mobile and desktop versions of Gmail, which was implemented on iOS today via an update to the Gmail app. The new design offers a tabbed layout that supports up to five different organizational tabs to allow users to organize mail into specific categories.

In addition to adding support for the new inbox, the update also brings enhanced notification options, allowing users to select the type of notifications that they want to receive.

New notifications options: Get notified for all messages, only important messages, or none at all, on a per account basis. Customize these settings from the in-app settings page.

Meet the new inbox: If you've enabled the new inbox, your mail is now grouped into categories so that you can see what's new at a glance and decide which emails you want to read when. Primary mail is shown first and it's easy to access and keep track of email in other categories by opening the menu. Configure this feature by going to Gmail.com on your computer.

Gmail for iOS is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

"Configure this feature by going to Gmail.com on your computer."

Stupid. Every app that does crap like this is lame. Make an app that does the whole job.

What phone are you using? It launches fast on my iPhone 5.

I'm using an iphone 5 and it does a lot of thinking while displaying the splash screen.

Takes way too long to launch--makes it unusable for me.

Would love to be able to make this my primary mail app!!!

As well as have some sort of background sync ability. Getting a notification but still having to wait for a) the app to open, and b) the email to actually download is tiresome.
