Gmail Mobile for Cell Phones

Filed under: Technology — feldmans @ 7:55 pm

Google has released Gmail Mobile, a new cell phone client application, for everyone’s favorite web-based email service, Gmail, or at least my favorite web-based email service 🙂

The Gmail Mobile app, which runs on your Java-enabled phone, is a nice improvement on the previous Gmail Mobile, which just provided a stripped-down version of Gmail optimized for mobile viewing. The new Gmail Mobile client, on the other hand, has all sorts of nifty features.

Google is touting the app as offering a much “faster, more Gmail-like user experience,” which naturally sounds great. Also, all email you send and read on your phone will be automatically synced with your browser (should we have expected anything else?). On the more impressive side, you can now view attachments like PDFs, Word docs, and photos, and a bevy of keyboard shortcuts should help you navigate your email more quickly once you get the hang of them.

In general the new Gmail Mobile promises to let you do nearly everything with Gmail that you can do from your computer. To install Gmail Mobile, direct your mobile web browser to http://www.gmail.com/app. I have done this on my phone and it is awesome. Much faster than browsing to the website, logging in again, and fighting with the slow connection speeds. Somehow Google has done it again and managed to impress me with yet another incredible feature.
