Google has issued an update to its recently redesigned Gmail app for iOS that brings a few notable changes to email composition and management on mobile devices.

In version 5.0.7, an option in the Settings panel lets users select their favorite browser (Safari or Chrome) for opening links in emails.

Users are now also able to select multiple messages in their inbox by tapping on the sender's profile image or icon next to the email, while messages can be marked as read or unread by selecting the email and tapping the 'open/closed envelope' icon in the top toolbar.

In addition, it's now possible to edit quoted content when replying to a message, and to copy and paste rich text content in a message.

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

Nice change. Really wasn't a fan of the recent redesign, but nice that they're fixing things and making it better.

Because one users get a taste of choice they will realize that iOS is a flashy/gimmicky and useless OS.
Why do you waste your time commenting on an Apple site when you clearly don't care for their products? It just boggles my mind whenever someone takes the time to write such things, not just here, when there are so many more interesting things to do.

iPhone users probably don't understand what choice means, so this update that allows you pick your browser won't make sense to many of them. Choice is something that android offers all its users all the time.
Trolling the Apple forums are we?
