Google announces Gmail on iPad

In April 2009, Google announced a new
version of Gmail for mobile for iOS and Android. Among the improvements
was a complete redesign of the web application’s underlying code which
allows us to more rapidly develop and release new features that users
have been asking for. Google introduces The Iterative Web App, a series where it will continue to release features for Gmail for mobile. Today: New
Compose Interface on the iPad.

Today they
announce an improved experience for writing emails on Gmail
web interface for iPad. When you write an email you’ll now get a
big full screen compose window instead of splitting the screen between
your inbox and the compose view. More text is visible at once and there
are no more distractions with messages on the side. They have also fixed
problems that prevented scrolling on long messages. Thanks to everyone
who reported the issue via the ‘Send feedback’ feature at the bottom of
the screen.

They continue to experiment with the large touchscreen and tablet
form factor so send more feedback if you have suggestions. To try out
Gmail on the iPad, just go to
in Safari. Please note that the new interface is only available in US
English for now.
