Introducing Gmail for mobile 2.0

Thursday, October 23, 2008 | 10:00 AM

As an engineer on the Gmail for mobile team, I use the Gmail client on my mobile phone all the time. Because of this, I'm always looking for ways to make it faster, more robust and easier to use. Today, we're thrilled to introduce Gmail for mobile version 2.0 for J2ME-supported and BlackBerry phones. Our focus for this version was to make the experience faster and more reliable. We rearchitected the entire client to push all the processing to the background, greatly improve the client-side caching scheme and optimize every bottleneck piece of code we came across.

So, what does this all mean for you?

  • Overall performance improvement: You should experience significant raw speed improvement, smoother scrolling, and no freezing.
  • Multiple accounts management: If you have both a Gmail and Google Apps email account, you can easily switch between them quickly. You will no longer have to use two different mobile apps to access personal and work emails.
  • Multiple mobile email drafts: You can save multiple email drafts in your mobile phone, so that you can pick and choose what you would like to send later.
  • Powerful shortcut keys: If you have a QWERTY phone, you can use shortcut keys. Hit 'z' to undo, 'k' to go to a newer conversation, and 'j' to go to an older conversation. See Menu/Help in the app for more shortcuts.
  • Basic offline support: Can't get a signal? Not a problem. You can compose and read your most recent emails even when there is no signal. Also, any outgoing messages will be saved in the outbox on your phone and sent automatically when you're back in coverage.
Also, Gmail for mobile 2.0 is available in over 35 languages now. Please note, though, that not all features are available for all phones.

I'm throwing out another request for this to be signed. It's incredibly annoying having to click "Allow" every time I do something in the program.

There have been many requests here in the comments and a lot of comments out there on the Internet about this.

Please, PLEASE sign the program! Thanks, great work otherwise.

if you don't like the icon, you can use Motorola Midlets Manager (google around for it and download it ...it's free, don't pay for it) which has a feature to change the icon of the program on your fone!

I downloaded google mobile to my BlackJack II. I love what it can do but unfortunately it is locking up my home screen so that I cannot navigate to any of my desktop icons without having to wait at least 30 seconds from the time I click an icon. Please tell me how to fix this or how to uninstall google mobile.

I'd like to use Gmail 2.0 on a Nokia 6080b is this possible?

Whenever I try to download it I'm being told that the file is too large though I have 2.2MB free on my phone. How much space do I need?

TroubleMaker said...

Installed 2.0.6 (upgrade from 1.1.1) onto Motorola v620.

There were no way to check if my phone is appropriate before an installation: "choose your phone" link allowed me only to select manufacturer, not model.

Well, now I geting "java.lang.OutOfmemory" and can't even re-install prev. version.

Tried to use Denis' advice and DL-ed 1.5.0, but it works weird and is unusable.

So, two questions:

1. is there a 1.x version with correct Moto V620 support and in Russian (optional) language?
2. link to download it to COMPUTER, please? (I hate to pay $1/4 per mbyte, while I have unlimited 256 ADSL)

Thank you

I have v2.0.6 on a BlackBerry Curve. It works and is better than nothing, but I would like to iterate some serious problems that it has:

1. Strips HTML hyperlinks and makes plain text.
2. Cannot select text in email body.
3. Cannot create labels or apply labels to conversations.
4. Cannot select multiple conversations on which to perform actions.
5. Cannot set a rate for which check for new mail.

Most of these issues are huge. I would like to be able to totally manage my email from my BlackBerry, but these feature problems make it impossible.
