Latest version of Gmail for iOS receives customizable swipe actions


Google is killing off its well-loved Inbox app but it still has not brought its popular qualities to the primary Gmail app. In some instances, Gmail is inconsistent across the platforms it is on the market. Case there is Gmail on iPhones and iPads that is getting the attribute that can let users select what occurs when they swipe an email. Better late than not, obviously, and will give them one less thing to whine about.

Customizable swipe activities on Gmail has existed for quite some time on Android and now is among those attributes it inherited from Inbox by Google. Nevertheless, the notion of swiping items in a listing to show additional activities has actually been around iOS much longer. This makes the belated coming of the Gmail feature fairly ironic.

For individuals on iPhones which are stuck with Gmail rather than Apple’s own Mail app or other third party apps, this attribute is still quite welcome. They could select whether to delete, archive, or snooze an email, based on which course they swipe. Obviously, they could only select two of these available activities.

Having said that, the update also brings one particular attribute the Android variant may not have. A lengthy press or 3D Touch hard press a telling will bring up other activities too. Great for fast going through these emails you may rather not see yet.

Currently, you can download the latest Gmail version for iOS instantly from the App Store. The app works also with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running on 11.0 or above.

Google bills this new attribute as part of its continuing redesign of this Gmail app. Part of the redesign is a brand new all-white color scheme which might be consistent with Google’s new Material Design terminology but is merciless on eyes and battery lifetime.
