Google has added a new feature to its Safari-based version of Gmail for the iPhone. The new Connection Bar is a tool that appears at the bottom of users' inboxes when it is actively connecting to the network in search of new emails, when it is pulling them down, or when it is sending emails from the device to the internet. Google says it is meant to help users know when their iPhone is sending/receiving email. The bar disappears when the app isn't accessing the network at all. It only works with devices running iOS 4.0 and up.
