Google recently made the newest version of Gmail available to devices running its own Android platform as well as Apple's iOS platform. The new version of Gmail, announced in May, adds tabs to the inbox to help Gmail users better organize their email. The new version of Gmail also offers more customizable notifications. The changes to the mobile apps reflect those made to the browser-based desktop version.

Another ridiculous inversion

This version of GMail moves the message options (delete/archive/new) to the top of the screen. Opera just did this with v14 of their mobile browser (though they later added a setting to move some of the buttons back down to the bottom).

Why would anyone want buttons at the top of the screen? If your display is more than a couple inches, you can't do stuff with one hand any more. Unless you are deformed in some way and find it more convenient to hold the top of your phone. I would prefer to have NONE of them at the top, much less all of them.
