Gmail for iPad gets stacked card interface

updated 10:25 am EDT, Thu August 19, 2010

Should simplify multiple conversation threads

Google has modified the iPad front-end for Gmail, adding a new "stacked card" interface for the e-mail service. Previously, two toolbars were on screen to run actions on conversations. One controlled selected conversations, however, while the other handled an open ones, which Google acknowledges was potentially confusing.

Under the card system, the second toolbar has been removed completely. Selected conversations are now stacked in the right-hand panel, where they can be sorted, archived or deleted. Google adds that in designing the new web interface, it has been experimenting with CSS3 transitions, which should make Gmail feel more like a native app. The updated interface is currently available only in US English.

    Location of getting the upgrade

    On the iPad the supplied gmail app does not seem to have any setting function, or way to do the upgrade.

    How or where is this done?

    There is a gmailapp on the app store on the iPad, but I prefer the gmail mail app that is already on the iPad on my app bar on the bottom of the screen.
