Google updates Gmail app on iOS addressing 'need for speed'
Google has reportedly updated its Gmail app for iOS, finally addressing the loathsome speed of which users earlier complained about.
Gmail software engineer Melissa Dominguez said that the Gmail app now supports "pre-fetching" so that messages are synced before a user opens the app.
According to Cnet, the updated Gmail app for iOS7 also allows for single sign-on for other Google apps on iOS like YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome and Google Drive.
Google is the only company that has been able to circumvent Apple's stranglehold on default iOS apps by linking its apps together, the report added.
