Google has updated its Gmail Mobile HTML5 web app adding support for its Priority Inbox feature. First debuted last summer for desktop browsers, Priority Inbox helps users manage their e-mail by automatically identifying important messages and organizing them separately. Users who have configured Priority Inbox in the desktop version of Gmail will now see their Priority Inbox categories displayed in the menu when accessing Gmail from Safari allowing them to more easily focus on priority messages. The updated HTML5 web app will also now display importance markers in the inbox to allow users to quickly identify which messages have been marked as important. At this time the feature does not allow users to setup Priority Inbox from the mobile version nor mark messages as important or unimportant. Gmail users can access the Gmail Mobile Web app simply by visiting from within the Safari browser. Additional information on the latest Gmail for mobile update is available at the Google Mobile Blog.
