In April 2009, Google announced a new version of Gmail for mobile for iOS and Android. Today the company announced an improved experience for writing emails on Gmail web interface for iPad.
When users write an email they will now get a big full screen compose window instead of splitting the screen between their inbox and the compose view. More text is visible at once and there are no more distractions with messages on the side. Google has also fixed problems that prevented scrolling on long messages.
To try out Gmail on the iPad, just go to gmail.com in Safari. Please note that the new interface is only available in US English for now.
