Android's Gmail app is updated to save you battery & bandwidth9
Version 2.3.5 of the Gmail app for Android is now available for download and literally will help cut down on power and bandwidth consumption – something that’s indeed nice for those on a budget. From the looks of it, you’ll have the ability to sync only priority emails, which in turn, will allow your handset to eat less power and data.
Additionally, we find other new features like a new option that allows you to set custom alert tones for the various labels, ability to set “Show Pictures” for specific senders, turn off sticky message actions, and better TalkBalk support for accessibility. And of course, it wouldn’t be an update if various “performance improvements” weren’t on board for the ride as well.
So if you haven’t done so already, you can download the latest version of the Gmail app for Android directly from the Android Market.
