iPhone users who access Gmail through the Safari browser are in for a treat – if you haven’t noticed already, Google has updated their Gmail interface with a useful new feature: the connection bar. Don’t you just hate it when you see your internet connection loading but you don’t know whether your mail is being sent or your inbox is being checked for mail? Well, the useful connection bar will give you all the info you need. Just like the connection bar that appears in the desktop version of Gmail, it will keep you informed about what Gmail is currently doing at the moment, and when the action is completed, it will disappear, giving you a complete view of the screen again. This feature works on the iPhone/iPod Touch running iOS 4 and above, and no updating is necessary; all you have to do is head to the Gmail site on your browser (though you might need to clear your cache if the connection bar doesn’t appear).
