We, at I4U News love Gmail. But, we'd love to see more updates to it, kinda like what Microsoft did to Hotmail, when it migrated the client to Outlook.com. The new Outlook looks very nice, with its Blue-ish theme and metro-like design. Of course, we're not expecting Google to imitate Outlook.com, but we'd like to see some design improvements to the email service.
That is why when we heard the report that a redesigned Gmail is in the works, we were excited. Android Police reports that Google is planning to introduce a new navigation drawer to Gmail. The site's assumption is based on a slide presented at a session at Google I/O which was entitled "Structure in Android App Design." The slide shows a new design, particularly, a new navigation drawer that would presumably make navigation easier.
The drawer, which can be accessed by clicking the 3-line button at the top left corner, also allows faster switching from "Inbox" to "Priority Inbox." Even better, all labels are now displayed in the drawer. Google hasn't confirmed the report, but Android Police believes that the new design is legitimate. The report comes after the rumor that Google is prepping up a major update to Gmail.
