Google Rolls Out Redesigned Gmail Web App


Google rolled out the redesigned Gmail web app yesterday. Google says that the redesigned user interface was inspired by Gmail native app for iPhone and iPad.

Google announced the new web app on Gmail’s Google+ page:

I’m curious to find out how many of you still use the web app or if you’ve switched the Gmail app (direct iTunes link).
