Google yesterday introduced a new and refreshing look for Gmail offline as well as of Gmail mobile web app for Android, iOS, Kindle Fire and BlackBerry users. A new look can be tried out by simply navigating to gmail.com in the web browser of your smartphone.
Meanwhile, the offline app has not been made available in the chrome store. The company doesn’t have the details of what exactly has been redesigned but in the event yesterday, it referred to the revamped Gmail app for iPad and iPhone which was introduced in December,2012.
Google said that many iOS users told them that they have liked the new refreshing user-interface of the Gmail app as well as the new features like Google calender integration and improved search.
This has led Google to introduce a similar kind of redesigning and bringing new changes to its Gmail web app and offline app for Android, BlackBerry and Kindle fire as well. The new revamped UI is quite likely be carried out by Sparrow team (iOS and Mac mail client) which was acquired by Google Inc. in July last year.
Managing Director of TNW, Matthew Panzarino described the new look as:
The new design is clean, instantly recognizable as Google, but also infinitely better than the last version of the app. I’ve been playing with it for just a few minutes and I already like it a lot.
Google is getting better and better with time in terms of mobile apps designing but still the company desires to push mobile web forward. That’s why, it is not surprising that not only iPhone and iPad users can only enjoy the redesigned UI of Gmail mobile app but also BalckBerry, Kindle Fire and Android smartphone users can.
The only missing platform from the updated design is Windows Phone. As Google is having dispute with its rival, we are not surprised that the company has ignored Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which is also considered as a capable mobile browser.
