A look at the iOS-esque UI on the updated Gmail mobile web app

On Monday, Google announced that it had changed the appearance of the Gmail mobile web app, which now resembles the look of the re-designed Gmail for iPhone and iPad app that was launched last December. The mobile web app now has an iOS-esque feel to it. To make things more consistent across the product line, Google decided to make this change. In addition, the feedback from users of the iOS app was so great, that the look was kept for the mobile web update.

Besides the new look, the update brings improved search capabilities and integration with Google Calendar. If we've piqued your interest, you can fire up the browser on your smartphone or tablet and head over to gmail.com on your iOS, Android, BlackBerry or Amazon Kindle Fire device. In addition to the Gmail mobile web app getting this new look, the same UI was used to re-design the Gmail Offline app for Chrome which allows users to reply, read and search mail without having an internet connection.

Haven't used gmail in 3 months and I can seriously say I do not miss it at all.

Purchased a Lumia 920 and a copy of Windows 8. The combo fuctions quite well, although W8 still needs a lot of work. I'm sure it will improve once Microsoft releases Windows Blue later in the year.

Windows users are getting used to live without google, that's sad such a nice company to have such a discriminatory behavior. As a Windows 8 user I see myself using less and less google services, the only one at this moment is the search engine... it's google choice to despise certain users...
