Gmail for Android updated, mostly benefits Honeycomb tablets

Android users on Ice Cream Sandwich have benefitted from a better Gmail app, but Google isn’t leaving users on previous Android versions behind. A new update is now available for the app via Google Play, and it brings many goodies. Honeycomb users benefit the most, receiving the same UI as the Ice Cream Sandwich version. Here’s the full rundown:

  1. Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) users get the Android Gmail 4.0 (ICS) experience with:
  2. Swipe to move between newer and older conversations
  3. Tap your account to access Recent labels
  4. Set custom notifications for individual labels
  5. Sync last 30 days of messages so you can read and search messages faster both online and offline.
  6. Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) users get:
  7. New Labels API for 3rd-party app developers
  8. Performance improvements

Not your typical update, and should keep many tablet users still on Honeycomb happy for the time being. Hit the source link to grab the update now, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below.
