gmail for android 2-3-5Google has introduced a new version of Gmail for their Android platform. Version 2.3.5 brings a fresh set of improvements, especially in the syncing department. The app now allows you to sync just the priority inbox, and not the whole inbox, thus saving a bandwidth and a little bit of battery life.

A new feature also lets users set different notifications for each label. So if you have a more important label you can have Gmail set a ringtone to notify you whenever a new email pops up.

Other improvements include

  • Remember 'Show Pictures' for senders

  • Turn off sticky message actions in landscape or all orientations

  • Better TalkBalk support for accessibility

  • Performance improvements

Gmail for Android 2.3.5 is available for free to Android 2.2 and 2.3 users and is not available on the Android Market.
