Google has rolled out a new update to their mobile Gmail web
application designed to bring it more inline with a
native application you might find on Apple’s iPhone 4. To make the feel
of their Gmail web app a little more polished, Google has now added
high resolution icons, providing a smoother and sharper user interface
on retina display smartphones.
Other new features included in this update include a new
Pull-to-refresh feature, that makes it quicker and easier to check for
new messages and download them to your smartphone. As explained in the
digram below there is now a bar along the top which if flicked down and
released will now start the send and receive process.
Other new features include fancier
transitions that have been created using eight different CSS3
"When you tap on a conversation, tap back to the inbox, go to the
menu or go back, the view will slide left or right. This new transition
animation is a quick, small indication that makes the view change feel
