Emails are fast and fun, requiring just a few clicks to read the message enclosed within. It’s also kind of addictive and exciting to receive and open one. So here’s a Gmail Pillow for you to hug and say thanks to for making information easily accessible that wasn’t possible even a decade ago.
Search giant Google recently updated their Gmail app for the iOS platform. Improvement includes faster, better and an easier user experience. “With version 2.0 of the app, you’ll get a totally new look and feel, plus a bunch of improvements like profile pictures in messages, numerous new animations from swivels to transitions and infinite scrolling in the message lists.”
Very soon your Facebook account may have its own email service, all integrated. Which means you could have an email account like firstname.lastname@example.org. However, this “Gmail killer” is unofficial and yet to take a concrete course. Honestly, this was expected. After all, the social networking giant has over 500 million registered users, so why not put that to a good use?
Gmail now supports image drag-and-drop. Previously the mail application supported only three ways of adding an image to a document, from your local hard drive, from the URL and from Google image search. And now the new drag-and-drop. “But sometimes the exact image you need is on your desktop and you just want to add it to your document quickly. Starting today, you can drag images from your desktop directly into your documents.”
New enhancements have come up from Gmail again. It’s called the Priority Inbox and is currently in Beta. Using the same advanced “spam filtering” technology, the folks at Google have come up with this wonderful idea of identifying which email messages are more important. In case Gmail incorrectly predicts the email’s importance, you can always train it to do it right by using the importance buttons, something similar to the Report button used for spam filters.
Mails, mails, mails….it’s not about receiving the mails but sending them; when at the last moment you remember that you should have altered it a bit or there was a need to add an attachment but oops!….”Your message has been sent.” !!! So what’s the alternative?
