Apps need to get updated from time to time in order to keep up with the fast paced society that users live in. In fact, if a particular app does not get its fair share of updates, you can be sure that it will lose out on its market share – fast! Google has been pretty consistent in the past to deliver app updates across various mobile platforms, and this time around, it would be the native Gmail for iOS app that has been given a bump up to version 2.4.
Needless to say, Gmail for iOS 2.4 will come with a slew of new features to make life easier, including what they have dubbed “enhanced email attachments” that will appear to translate into larger thumbnails as well as full screen previews. Not only that, users of the updated app ought to be able to lock down an improved level of integration with another two Google apps, namely Google Drive and Google+. If you happen to have links to either one of those online services, it will send you directly to the appropriate app instead of the web, which is a smarter way of managing things. Of course, you can also choose to disable this particular setting through the in-app options just in case you are not too comfortable with such a deep level of integration.
