Upgraded To GMail Mobile 2.0

Wednesday 19 November 2008 @ 9:06 am

GMail Mobile 2.0 was released on 23rd Oct and I upgraded it immediately. The newer version is still very small in size (256kb), but now supports more J2ME phones (Nokia N95, BlackBerry, etc.) with over 35 languages for users to select.

GMail Mobile 2.0

Well, it’s undeniable more useful features have been added into v2.0, but I still experience slow connection (even on 3G) every now and then.

Useful features :-

  • Application loading up pretty fast – You don’t have to wait for too long until you see the emails list
  • Support multiple accounts – Log in to different gmail accounts in 1 application
  • Offline message composing – You may compose email when you are having poor signal then send it later
  • Multiple mobile email drafts – Compose multiple email draft and save it in the mobile phone

Glitches :-

  • Need refreshing (to load new emails) after logging in.
  • Loss of connection even signal is good.

I suppose GMail has become the top pick for free email service nowadays, so if you are using it GMail Mobile 2.0 is the application you must have on your mobile phone especially you are always on the move.
