Gmail improves support for links

Google has launched an updated version of its Gmail app for iOS, introducing support for opening links in their respective apps. Available since 2011, the official Gmail app has also included support for opening links, however, prior to this update directed users to a browser for all links. YouTube, Google Maps and Chrome links all direct to their respective apps unless the setting is disabled within the app. Additionally, the update also adds support for signing out of a single account when multiple identities are active.

Path beefs up security options

Path, a social network designed specially for iOS users, has been updated with enhanced security settings and a variety of new features. Among the numerous tweaks and bug fixes is a new option that allows users to hide themselves from global searches. Improvements have also been made to the apps built-in messaging client, including a new typing indicator, better unread message badging and notifications, and the ability to personalize group messages.
