Gmail is one of the most used apps on Android. The last major update of the Gmail app saw the app get a Holo like minimalistic theme keeping in line with the overall ICS/JellyBean look. However, since then the app has not had any major updates, at least in terms of UI refresh. That has not stopped the app from still being one of the best looking apps out there. There have been rumours though that better may be just getting even better. The app is set to finally get a UI update which brings a few more interesting features to the table. The images were recently leaked online by TNW. So what’s changed? Let’s look at it.
The app as expected, retains the Holo Theme in line with other Google Mobile apps. But there are a few interesting changes. The new Gmail app brings new categories which help organize your mail better. These categories are: Primary, which will contain mails from your family and friends. Other categories include Social, for your social networking attention, Offers, which would contain mails from various Retailers, Notifications and Forums.
All these categories have different colours assigned to them which helps keeping the inbox organised and brings an element of good looks as well. There is no news on when the new Gmail will be rolled out, but with screenshots appearing all over the web, you go to be lieve it would not be too long before the app comes to your iOS or Android device.
