    Google has updated the Gmail for iOS app to version 2, bringing much requested features like multiple account support, autocomplete predictions for searching, an infinite scrolling inbox, and the ability to RSVP to Google Calendar invites from within the app.

    Gmail for iOS can be downloaded free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    Note: Some users have reported issues downloading or updating to the new Gmail app, but Google promises the issues are only temporary.

    Looks nice, but says no longer available

    Maybe it will replace sparrow once google or apple solve the issue. Getting the same error on iPad and iPhone.

    Looks like I'll be switching from Sparrow then :)

    Edit - it's a beautiful app...nice and speedy too!

    Does anyone know if the app supports push email? How about Gmail accounts that are on other domains (my university is powered by Gmail but the email address is not gmail.com).

    bit annoyed with the 5 accounts limit, but yay multiple accounts.

    Yeah, I'm getting told that "The item you tried to buy is no longer available". I guess I'll try again tomorrow.

    App asks if you'd like to receive Push notifications when launched, so I'd guess yes.

    I'm logging into Google Apps accounts without a problem, so I guess thats a yes too.

    Anybody having trouble with the 2-factor authentication trusting the device?

    I am being asked every time I sign in to do the 2-factor authentication thing.

    Why is this needed?

    I get my gmail mail in the Apple mail app (along with Yahoo & Hotmail). Seems to work fine.

    If I had a gmail app I would be going to two places to get my mail.
  12. macrumors member

    Because this way offers better integration with Gmail. There's nothing wrong with another choice (especially when it's the "native" app to this email provider).

    So far so good, loving new look.
  14. macrumors member

    Delete the Gmail app from the iPhone and then go back into the app store and then install from the available updates or previously purchased apps. BTW, a great upgrade to the Gmail app.
  15. macrumors newbie

    Gmail app is more tailored to Gmail.

    Also, with push notifications from Gmail we're now getting immediate notifications when an email is sent, rather than the Fetch system that works with Apple Mail.

    iPad youtube app

    now google please make youtube app for iPad...
  17. macrumors 6502

    Worked for me, thanks!
  18. macrumors member

    I tried the Gmail app when it was first released and wasn't too pleased, especially not having the ability to add multiple accounts.

    But, with this update, it is quite nice!

    It's been possible to get push mail through Gmail using nothing but stock iOS for something like 2 years now. You set up Gmail as an Exchange account.

    Looks nice!

    It makes the Mail app in iOS look so dated...
  21. macrumors 6502


    No need to delete app first. Just go to purchased apps and install from there.
  22. macrumors newbie

    Okay its been possible, but its not something your average user knows. This works straight out of the box, like you'd imagine it to work.
  23. macrumors 6502a


    So to use this app, and no longer use the native ios mail app, what needs to be done? Input my account info into this app, then go into Mail Settings in IOS Settings, and delete my GMAIL and Exchange accounts?

    How many Gmail accounts can 1 person possibly need?

    All right! Multiple account support! Those of us with Apps accounts for work thank you for FINALLY adding this.

    Now, if only it'd stop telling me "the item you tried to buy is no longer available" when I tell the App Store to update the Gmail app... :D
