If you have been accessing Gmail using Safari on your

iPhone

for quite some time, have you noticed the subtle changes that has arrived of late?

Google recently announced that they have made few improvements  in the way Gmail works on your iPhone.

The new features include enhancements like making the scrolling snappier and getting the option to access your toolbars from any point on the page. The scroll speed is now dependent on the speed of your swipe gesture – making navigation a lot easier.

As mentioned earlier, the second major update is the availability of the toolbar on screen even after you scroll towards the extremities of the page. Earlier, users were limited to a fixed toolbar that wasn't accessible when you scrolled away from it. Google has tried many combinations of these new buttons and has homed in on this final version based on feedback received from users.

To checkout the improved Gmail, all you need to so is to visit

gmail.com

from your iPhone or

iPod Touch

using the default Safari browser. Make sure your device is running

iOS 4

or later. If you are still seeing the old version, you might want to clear your cache and refresh the page.
