Gmail 1.3 iOS Gets Smoother Animation and Scrolling

Now save picture attachments to your photo library by touching and holding an image

The search giant headquartered in Mountain View, California has released version 1.3 of the Gmail app for iPhone and iPad. “We've made a bunch of under the hood changes to improve animation, scrolling, and responsiveness on the iPhone and iPod touch,” says Google.

The updated Gmail app for iOS devices now features smoother animation and scrolling on iPhone and iPod touch, and the ability to save picture attachments to your photo library. Users simply touch and hold an image to save it. Some undocumented bug fixes also made their way into this release.

Google says, “You’ll notice that many events in the app are just a little bit faster and smoother. Buttons respond to presses a little more quickly, scrolling is smoother and new views transition faster.  With this update, we tried to make it a little better with every touch.” The “universal” Gmail iOS app is designed for both iPhone and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later.
