Gmail update for iOS adds background mail retrieval, simplified sign-in

Google's email service Gmail has received an update for its iOS app. The newly redesigned app provides real-time notifications, multiple account support and search across one's entire inbox. In v3.0, Gmail now includes background app refreshing, meaning that email is fully downloaded and retrieved as it arrives in one's inbox, as opposed to syncing only when the app is opened. Sign-in has been simplified, with consolidated authorization with all Google apps now enabled. Gmail for iOS now requires iOS 7 for all features to function.

CrossOver 13.1.0 update includes support for Quicken 2014

CodeWeavers' flagship virtual environment program CrossOver has been updated for both OS X and Linux, now offering support for Quicken 2014. CrossOver allows users to install many popular Windows applications and PC games on a Linux or Mac system, by running Windows APIs (but not the full operating system itself) natively. In addition to Quicken support, CrossOver 13.1.0 has improved language translations. Those already using CrossOver will be prompted to install the update upon their next launching of the software, and new users can purchase the latest version for $60.
