Gmail app updated with better gestures and a new actions bar

The Gmail app for iPhone and iPad has just received an update that adds quicker message handling functionality and a new action bar for moving, deleting, and archiving mail. Among these new features, there are also bug fixes and overall performance enhancements.

Instead of having to tap out and back into messages, the new gestures in the Gmail update allow you to swipe side to side in order to flip between messages in your inbox. Tapping on a message now also enables edit mode for quicker handling when clearing out messages. Just select the messages you'd like and the new action bar will then let you archive, delete, or move them where you'd like.

The update is available now in the App Store. Hit the link below to grab the app if you don't already have it installed.
