Gmail on iPad Updated

On June 21, 2010

Google created an iPad formatted version of Gmail when the iPad launched.  Google uses HTML5 to create the 2 column display so that users can see emails on the left, and a larger individual message on the right.

Even though this approach mimics the built in Apple mail approach, users have noted some difficulty in using it to write emails.  Seems like Google was listening, since it now has announced the new full-screen editor for writing emails on the iPad.

The new compose window pops up on top of the existing 2 columns and makes it much easier for users to write email on the iPad.  Google also seems to have fixed a few issues including scrolling long messages.

Google said that they are still working on additional "features" and welcome all comments.  How about an HTML5 based version of the Calendar that works better?!
