Gmail for mobile receives a slightly new makeover
Needless to say, most smartphone owners who use Gmail are probably accessing their emails with their native email application, but for some people, they still choose to go with the reserved route of checking them out through their web browser.

Well, Google decided to refresh the Gmail for mobile web site to make it look and feel more in tune to what we commonly see with apps. Visually, we now find higher resolution icons and graphics, which is especially prominent with things like the iPhone 4’s Retina display. Moreover, left and right transition effects are now available when you happen to tap on a conversation or go back to the inbox And lastly, for those sporting iOS and PlayBook devices, they’ll find the functionality of pull down to refresh – thus, allowing them to refresh their message list by simply dragging it downwards and then releasing.

There is no doubt that these new refinements are appreciated on so many levels, but it’ll be especially helpful to those who just prefer doing their Gmail thing through their handset’s mobile web browser.
