I’m kind of curious why someone would use the web based version of Gmail – opening their browser on their mobile phone and going to gmail.com – instead of using the Android Application assigned for Email? Putting that aside for now, with you comments appreciated at the bottom, Google has just announced improvements to web-based Gmail for Android and the iPhone.

The improvements include:

  • Underlying code overhauled enabling quicker launch of future improvements
  • Faster address auto-completion
  • Enabled keyboard shortcuts


For a full explanation of the improvements, visit the Official Google Mobile Blog. But right now… explain to us why you would visit Gmail on the web instead of using the Email application?
