Gmail iOS app refined for iOS 7, gets a new navigation bar and full-screen email composition on iPad

iPad1

Google updated the Gmail for iOS app today with a refined design that aligns with Apple’s aesthetic in iOS 7. On the iPhone, the changes are subtle but give the inbox and sidebar a slightly wider, cleaner look.

The improvements are most noticeable on the iPad though, where Google has added an all-new navigation bar for swapping between categories and accounts in landscape mode. As part of the update, it’s now possible to compose and view emails in a full-screen mode while holding the tablet in portrait. Oh, and there’s also “better scrolling”, which is pretty self-explanatory.

New York, are you ready?
