Google Adds Notification Support to iOS Gmail App
Updated: added add'l URL
Google today updated the Gmail for iOS application with several significant new features. First and foremost, Gmail for iOS now supports notifications in the lock screen, including banners, alerts, and other options. The updated Gmail for iOS also adds persistent login, which means Gmail sessions no longer expire and users won't need to continually re-login every time they launch the app. Last, it adds support for sending email from alternate email addresses if so enabled within Gmail. The update is free from the iPhone App Store and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
