Google launches, and then pulls buggy Gmail iOS app

Google Inc. GOOG-Q released a native Gmail application for iOS into the wild today, then returned it to captivity just as quickly. The application, which was available for free on Apple Inc. AAPL-Q devices running iOS 4.0 or higher, lacked certain critical features: [url=]cheap jerseys[/url]such as the ability to receive notification updates when readers got new mail.

Google tweeted from their official Gmail Twitter account:

“The iOS app we launched today contained a bug with notifications.[url=]nfl jerseys cheap[/url] We have pulled the app to fix the problem. Sorry we messed up.”

Google fans who chafed at using Apple’s default Mai [url=]wholesale soccer jerseys[/url]l application have long-awaited an iOS app. Android users have a native Gmail application as part of the operating system’s core features.

In our trial of the iOS app, the interface was slick and imports [url=]naty[/url] the look and feel of Google’s new product suite. It looks especially nice on the iPad, where it’s organized similarly to Apple’s Mail app: One column on the left with a list of messages, and a right pane displaying a more detailed view of messages.

Some things, such as the “important” markers of the Gmail [url=]steelers jerseys cheap[/url] Priority Inbox, appear where they wouldn’t in Apple’s Mail. Actions like labelling and forwarding are handled through a drop-down menu. However, Gmail does not feel like a “true” iOS app; things like the log-in screen and attachment handling feel very much like a browser window in a fancy wrapper.

While the application seems to hit the right notes aesthetically, [url=]cheap nfl jerseys[/url]there are glaring functional omissions, such as the inability to download photo attachments to your Camera Roll – users are forced to open an image in Safari and save it from there.

The lack of notification settings is a problem, but has since been explained by the bug notice. Hopefully an updated version will fix the problems and turn the app into a powerhouse e-mail client on iOS.
