Gmail app updated with swipe to move between messages, multiple select edit mode

Google updated its Gmail for iOS app today with the ability to swipe right or left to move between messages without going back to the inbox.

Version 2.1 also includes the ability to enable edit mode by selecting a message in the inbox. Once in edit mode, Google said users could tap on messages to select. They can then archive, delete, etc., from the new actions bar, or they can just Cancel to exit edit mode.

Today’s update is a significant user interface boost that promotes ease of use and a minimalist design. It also brings Gmail’s iOS offering up to speed with the Android version that has sported this same functionality for quite some time.
