The Gmail for iPhone app received an update today that includes the long awaited ability to save picture attachments to your Camera Roll. It has also received performance enhancements that improve the animation and scrolling experience.

Personally, I don't use the Gmail app, so when I read that this update now lets you tap and hold a photo attachment to save it to your Camera Roll, I couldn't help but let out a little chuckle. This is a feature that has been standard in most apps for a very long time. To think that a mail client was lacking this ability until today is laughable.

Do you use the Gmail app for iPhone? If so, why? What makes it better than Apple's native Mail app?
