Inbox fans, rejoice! Those horizontal black bars you see when checking email on your iPhone X are no anymore because Google finally updated the gesture-driven client with full support for the edge-to-edge OLED panel on Apple’s flagship smartphone.
Another major app has been updated to support the big beautiful display on the iPhone X. Google has updated the official Gmail app (as well as the Google Opinion Rewards app) to support the larger screen.
Most iOS users utilize the Mail app on their device by default for any email-related activities because it’s the stock app for doing so. Unfortunately, after deleting the Mail app (post-iOS 10), iOS won’t redirect mail:to links to your favorite third-party email app when you tap on them.
MailClientDefault10 is a new jailbreak tweak release by HiDan that fixes this problem by letting you configure a third-party email client as the default app for composing emails, which effectively solves the aforementioned problem.
Google today refreshed its mobile Gmail app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on App Store, adding very limited 3D Touch support nearly a year and a half after Apple first brought pressure sensing to iPhone’s display with the September 2015 release of iPhone 6s.
Owners of the iPhone 6s/7 series can now press Gmail’s icon to quickly compose a message, but that’s about it. Thank you, Google, but seriously?
In my view, Google doesn’t really have a clue how to properly build 3D Touch gestures into Gmail in a manner that would save users time and boost their productivity.
The app still lacks Peek and Pop gestures., but we’ll get those next year, right?
