Gmail Returns to the App Store for Take Two

Google has re-launched their iOS Gmail app after a failed attempt two weeks ago. This second attempt at a release includes full push notification support – let us know if it actually works for you. Google still hasn’t included multiple account or signature support, so the app continues to be rather pointless since Apple’s own Mail app includes these features.

The company warns that if you still have the old app installed, you’ll need to uninstall it and install the new one for everything to work properly.

Those who already have the Gmail app released Nov 2 must uninstall or log out of the old app prior to installing the new app.

As you might recall, the previous release had a major bug with push notifications that rendered the app as useless. It also lacked the two features mentioned above, which gave it a bad name since many were anticipating multiple account support. If Google wishes to be a competitor, they need to step up their game.

Anyway, let us know in the comments how the app works for you now and good luck.

Gmail for iOS is available here.
