New Gmail Interface for iPad users

Google has unveiled their new Gmail interface for iPad users, taking their first step on Iterative Web App series which will continue to release features for Gmail for mobile. Now for iPad users the compose interface has been redesigned.

Apple iPad users would now get an updated email compose screen which appears as an overlay providing more space for writing the message.

The official Google statement says

” When you write an email you’ll now get a big full screen compose window instead of splitting the screen between your inbox and the compose view. More text is visible at once and there are no more distractions with messages on the side. Also fixed problems that prevented scrolling on long messages. ”

As of now, the new interface is only available for US English.
