If you use the Gmail App for iOS, you may be happy to learn that it’s getting Notification Center support. The App wasn’t the greatest when it launched, but it’s become much better over time, and now with support for features like Notification Center, it’s become even better.
The Notification Center Support means you will get alert banners on all of your iOS devices when new mail comes in. You can also use alternate emails for sending messages, and the app doesn’t log you out automatically when you don’t use it for a period of time.
Here is a section of the blog post from Google’s official Gmail Blog explaining some of the features:
Today, we’re excited to add three new improvements to that list of updates: full notification center support, the ability to send messages from your alternate email addresses and an improved login experience.
First up, Gmail is now fully integrated with Notification Center and supports banners, alerts and lock screen options. Plus, notifications are now incredibly fast — up to 5x faster than in the previous version.
Next, you now have the option to send mail from alternate email addresses. If you have configured alternate sender addresses in Gmail on your desktop under Settings->Accounts->Send mail as you will see a From: option when composing new messages in the app.
