For some time now, Gmail users have requested an official Gmail app that would allow them to do so much more with their gmail than the stock Mail.app or online Gmail portal. The reason for the MIA app is unknown, (feel free to speculate your own stories now), however, it seems that users will get something rather sweet that should lessen the regressions felt. Google has updated the Gmail web portal to include swiping features similar to the swiping done in native apps. Remember, this is all done in the browser. Pretty neat stuff. This and more up and coming browser goodies can be attributed to Mobile Safari’s new support for HTML5. One other juicy tidbit on the road map for the iPhone Gmail web portal is that of offline reading. Such features will blur the line between what is and isn’t a web app/desktop app. While the initial swiping functions are rather minor, the possibilities for the near and further future are pretty exciting. Care to agree?
