Google has launched significant upgrades to its Gmail and Calendar web applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and Android-powered devices. According to the company’s Mobile blog, the team behind the apps has completely re-architected the code to offer more consistent performance, and refreshed the user interface to make it easier to perform batch actions, along with laying the groundwork for future improvements. Other improvements include easier to read labels that are more in-line with their desktop counterparts, a relocated search menu, and the ability to open recently read messages and to compose new emails over a “flaky, or non-existent, network connection.” The improved interface requires iPhone OS 2.2.1 or later, and can be accessed now by visiting gmail.com from an iPhone or iPod touch.
