Google introduced a new email application called Inbox a few months back. The application seeks to revolutionize the way we consume email on our mobile devices. So far it has only been supported on iOS and Android smartphones but today it gets support for one of the most popular tablets in the market. Google has updated the Inbox for iOS app to add native support for the iPad.
Just in case you were wondering, native support means that Inbox for iPad now has its own user interface that is fully compatible with the extra screen real estate offered by the tablet.
iPads are capable of running apps meant for the iPhone, but one has to enlarge the apps so that they fit on the iPad’s larger display, and this just makes the app visually unappealing.
No new features are included in today’s Inbox for iOS update, just native support for iPad, the app is live now and can be downloaded from the App Store.
Google’s recent move to pull Sparrow, a popular email app for iOS and Mac, indicates that Inbox may play a bigger role in the days to come.
However for now Google is keeping it locked behind an invite system. Downloading the app is easy, they’re available for free, but in order to use Inbox an invite is required which the company itself often gives out.
