Apple iPhone and iPad owners opting to use the official Gmail application have a compelling upgrade waiting for them notes The Verge. The newest version of Gmail for iOS takes advantage of Apple’s willingness to let third-party apps share information and have actionable notifications. Gmail for iOS now lets you reply to incoming mail through notifications, for example, meaning you never have to leave the app you’re in when replying. Messages showing on the lock screen can now be archived or deleted as well, making it quicker to manage email. Gmail can be added to the “share” menu in iOS 8 as well, so you can send images or documents outside of the Gmail app.
