Google refreshes its mobile web user interface to look more like its Gmail iPhone app

Google has announced that it has refreshed the user experience for its mobile web access to Gmail, Calendar, Google+, Web and more. The refresh has come about because of the positive feedback it has received since launching a revamped Gmail iOS app back in December of last year.

Since launching the rebooted Gmail app for iPhone and iPad in December, we’ve heard from many of you that you like the redesigned UI, along with new features such as improved search and integration with Google Calendar. Today we’re rolling out a similar refreshed look to the Gmail mobile web app as well as Gmail Offline that includes many of these same changes. Try it out at in the browser of your Android, iOS, Blackberry or Kindle Fire device.

The refresh is certainly a very nice improvement when you are accessing the site from your iPhone’s browser. The question is, does anyone actually access Gmail in this way? Surely it is much more convenient to either use the built in Mail app or use the Gmail app from the App Store.
