Google updates its Gmail App for iOS

Google updates its Gmail App for iOS

Google announced an official Gmail update for iPhone and iPad clients. It enables the Google addicted users to open tagged links in YouTube, Maps and Chrome applications instead of browser. Apple Inc. has removed the Google application from default tray. The removed apps are YouTube, Maps and Chrome browser.

Apple blocked Google services officially. And now Google is taking long road to be in touch with its users. Quiet astonishing that leading companies are playing tactics with each other. In Germany, Google is trying to block iOS from using its SEPs which are essential GSM part. And on the other side, Apples removes its applications from default app tray for new iOS versions.

The updated version 2.2.7182 of iPhone Gmail client is released to cover the gap between iOS users and Search Giant. The minor update is not mandatory. User can turn it on or off. If enabled, it initiates the applications to smoothly integrate them giving better Google home based experience.

Apple had a drawback to third party developers for creating default handlers. It poses certain restrictions for these applications but company is trying to meet for seamless integration between its apps.

Internet Giant company’s developers are pushing their iOS application beyond borders. Latest iTunes states show YouTube and Google Maps among the top 25 most popular downloaded applications. Giving it more than its own operating system Android seems ridiculous.

Safari browser is default in iOS. Although Chrome is much popular but Apple mandatory rule not to allow other application from being default limits Chrome extension on iOS, although it is most widespread app on iTunes.

In August 2012, Search Giant introduced its Google+ application. That was not famous and less interconnected. Recent Gmail client update pushed all its services to be interlinked along with Video Sharing, Mapping, Location based services, social network, internet browser and email.

Using one application will trigger the other relevant apps which will result in smooth and equal growth of all services. Application for iOS is free from iTunes store. Its size is 12.1 MB and compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with operating system version of 5.0 or later.
