Google has brought back its official Gmail app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app was released earlier this month but was quickly pulled after a few short hours. Apparently, the app was riddled with bugs and garnered a rash of negative feedback. Now, the company is offering up version 1.0.2 that should work as promised.
The version 1.0.2 Gmail app requires iOS 4.0 and above. Users that installed the previous buggy version 1.0.1 are instructed to either uninstall or log out from the app before upgrading. However, the new app doesn’t bring much in new features. It’s meant to be an improvement on the native iOS mail app, allowing users to view Gmail’s threaded conversations and more easily organize using archiving, labeling, starring, deleting, and spam reporting.
The Gmail app offers the Priority Inbox feature, notification badges for new messages, attachment support, auto-complete of email addresses from Gmail contacts, and full inbox search. The app also supports up to 28 languages. It’s available now for free at the iTunes App Store.
