Gmail Redesign for iOS Rolling Out Starting Today

by

Google today announced that its mobile apps for Android and iOS are gaining a new look to bring them in line with the design changes and new features that were previously made available on the web.

With the updated version of Gmail for iOS, attachments like photos can be viewed without opening or scrolling through a conversation.


There are clear alerts when an incoming email looks suspicious, and Google has made it easier to switch between personal and work accounts.

Google says the redesign that's rolling out to iOS and Android users "in the coming weeks" is part of a larger effort to make its G Suite products look and act like a family of products, all with Google's Material Theme.

Web apps like Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Docs, and Sites have already been updated with the redesign, and later this year, additional mobile apps will be revamped.

My eyes are burning from all of the white. Please let there be a dark mode in the app at least.

I bet it still won’t be optimized for the 11” iPad Pro.

So why even comment?

Pot calling the kettle...?

Could easily ask you the same thing, but forums are for sharing opinions. Threads are like guideposts. They help steer a discussion, but they don’t act like solid walls.

I don't do business with a company where a person's personal information (and other usage) is mined and sold for company profit, no matter how nice their family of products may look.

That's your choice but Google do make have some great apps and products. I have no issue with them having my data, I consider it a fair trade and I go into it with eyes wide open. They don't have my bank card and pin number, they have a limited amount of info which I couldn't care less if they have, use, sell or whatever. People love to say how evil Google is with "you are the product" claims, so what? Show me someone who has signed up to a Google product and had something hideous happen because of it.

On a different note it's a shame that they've increased pricing by 20% for GSuite users today.
