Google Updates 'Inbox' App With iPad Support

Google on Thursday quietly released an update for Inbox by Gmail [Direct Link] with universal support for iPad, as spotted by TechCrunch. The latest version of the app should be rolling out on the App Store in the United States and elsewhere today, transforming the previously iPhone-only software into a universal iOS app. Version 1.2 also includes an assortment of bug fixes and performance improvements.

Inbox by Gmail for iPad
The update arrives a few days after Google quietly removed Sparrow from the App Store on iOS and Mac to focus its efforts on Inbox by Gmail. Released on an invite-only basis last fall, Inbox by Gmail is essentially the marriage of Gmail, Google Now and Material Design, providing Gmail users with a modern interface for effectively managing their email. The email service for iPad continues to require an invite from Google or another Inbox by Gmail user.

Inbox by Gmail [Direct Link] is free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad.

Am I the only one that can't stand the direction Google has gone with this app?
Reminders, travel prices, calendar events, pics from a friends social media account, etc.. all interspersed through out the app with your emails.

What happened to the good old days of just showing me my emails without all this other junk? :confused:

But still no support for Google Apps users. I don't understand Google's policy of leaving paying customers high and dry whenever they release a new product. It's extremely lowly and irritating.

I stopped using my gmail account about a year ago. I did not like the fact that they were reading my mail an using it to target ads at me. Has that changed? Otherwise, no pretty veneer can get me back.

I'm very interested into which company you're now using that claims to not invade your privacy?

Does it still use the default tri-tone notification sound?
