Companies are all about evolving to keep up with the times in order to stay ahead or remain relevant in today’s highly competitive market, and Google jealously guards their turf on the mobile app front with the most recent Gmail Mobile update, where the user interface (UI) has been redesigned to resemble the one found in Gmail 2.0 for iOS which has picked up its fair share of bouquets. It is nice to see that UI design being expanded into its other web apps, like Gmail Mobile for example.
If you are a Gmail user (who isn’t these days?) who tend to access your email account from a mobile web app or Gmail Offline, you will find it refreshing to check out a spanking new user interface design that is not too different from what Gmail 2.0 for iOS has offered for the past few months already. You will now be able to take advantage of Gmail 2.0′s search and Google Calendar integration, a pair of features that proved to be winners among its iOS users.
It does not matter if you are rocking to the Android or BlackBerry mobile operating systems, or if you are a Kindle Fire user, Google has made sure that you do not miss out on this refreshed user interface party. Wait a minute here, there’s someone at the door who lacks an invite to this party - and that would be Windows Phone. Boo hoo!
How are you enjoying the new user interface in Gmail on your mobile device now?
