If you happen to be a regular user of the Gmail app on your iOS device, you be glad to find out the app has received an update, bumping it to version 3.0.
The latest Gmail for iOS update brings a few much needed features and enhancements for iOS devices, including background refresh and a simplified sign-in process.
The latest Gmail for iOS brings background app refresh, a much requested feature, which will automatically refresh the app in the background, and fetches your emails even when the application is not open. The new feature requires users to be on iOS 7, with at least one type of notification (badge, alert, or banner) turned on. This means every time you launch the app, it will be up to date with your latest emails.
Secondly, the update also brings single sign-in feature. What this means is that logging in to any of the Google Apps such as Drive, Gmail or any other, the other Google apps will automatically let you sign-in to the app with a single tap, without the need for you to enter your credentials again.
If you’re a regular user of Gmail, head over the App Store and update the app. Do note that you may have to login to Gmail again after updating.
