As soon as it was here, it was gone.
Google’s Native Gmail App launched November 2nd and faced a litany of complaints due to a bug preventing push notifications from working properly. Google promptly pulled the App one short hour after its release. Well, the problem is all fixed, and Google released version 1.0.2 of the Gmail app today for download in the App Store.
In addition to fixing the problems that prompted the app’s quick removal a week ago Google improved the handling of HTML images in messages. The images are now sized to fit the screen and are susceptible to the pinch-zoom.
Those downloading version 1.0.2 of the Gmail app who have the old broken version installed on their iOS device will need to log out of the old app or delete it before downloading the new App.
Many people have questioned the need for a native iOS Gmail app, but if the post of Google’s Gmail blog is any indication the current app is only the beginning.
We’re just getting started with the Gmail app for iOS and will be iterating rapidly to bring you more features, including all the ones listed above plus many more. Based on your comments we have already improved our handling of image HTML messages - they are now sized to fit to the screen and you can pinch to zoom in. — Gmail Blog
