Google’s Upcoming Gmail App Expected to Include Yahoo and Outlook Account Support

Google’s Upcoming #Gmail App #Expected to #Include Yahoo and Outlook Account Support

Syncing one's emails with an Android device has always presented a well-known plight for users who have email accounts open with providers other than Google. The main conflict is that the Google's mail app can only sync with Gmail accounts, so users with other email accounts have to hop from one app to another.
Well, the dilemma ultimately appears to be coming to an end, as a latest ad for Android’s Lollipop modified version of the Gmail app reveals that it maintains email accounts from Yahoo, Outlook and others. Giving access to other email accounts would definitely enhance the efficiency and reputation of Gmail’s mobile app.
Gmail for Android has usually supported only Google’s own mail service, but it looks like search giant wants to assist Android users handle all of their mail from within its Gmail app. A leaked video shows the latest Gmail app, and Google notes in it that more than just Gmail, Yahoo, and accounts are maintained. It looks like Exchange ActiveSync is supported, as in the Android mail client, which could bring the end of toggling between mail clients on Android for the majority of users. Yahoo and are an addition for Android users, and it’s an advance from Google that may also aid keep phone makers bundling apps like Gmail with devices.
Features of the updated Gmail app:
  • New Gmail app comes with a new Material Design layout that offers shrinking and expanding capabilities.
  • The New layout offers elements that dynamically adds more white space between those elements, kicks in animation, and looks more 3D owing to shadows and lighting effects.
  • Updated Gmail app will be having wide variety of features which help you to access your emails in a single place.

  • Updated iconography,
  • Tweaked buttons,

7 Improvements That the Users Wish to See In iOS 9!

7 Improvements That the Users Wish to See In iOS 9!

Few news reports and some sources say that Apple would launch a new version of mobile operating system (iOS 9). There is a huge expectation on the new version; iOS 9 would come with few functionality improvements and solid stability. It’s being said that iOS 9 development would be consistent with what Apple has done till now. Every year Apple has been releasing a major upgrade of iOS. So this year too we can expect a new iOS version. This year, Apple is mainly focusing on the internal functionality of the OS instead of the improvements on user interface and the app functionality which is most required for the users.
Here is the list of improvements to be done on iOS 9:
  1. Some Back-End improvements: Though iOS 8 is providing a solid user experience, minor improvements on the reaction speed and stability would be very good. According to some sources, Apple is currently working on some enhancements which would make the operating system faster, responsive and less likely to crash. Improvements on back-end are certainly not flashy; but they are the ones which are necessary to induce users to deploy new software.
  2. Apple Maps’ still isn't perfect: Mapping application on apple still has a long way to go to match up to the standards of Google maps and hence its reliability has also been questioned when it is put up with Google maps. The app lacks in offering street view experience that Google map is offering. This is the main feature that has made so popular. No doubt that ‘Apple Maps’ will be a solid mapping platform if some minor improvements are done.
  3. Improvement on Siri: Siri might be the first personal assistant which was out; but users argue that Microsoft’s Cortana which was let out later is much better than Siri. Because Cortana comes with a refined feel that doesn’t feel more robotic. It also has some complex features like awareness on the activity of the users. Currently Siri is still a passive assistant that needs some directions; but that’s not the case of Cortana. This is what the users are expecting to be rectified in iOS 9.
  4. Multiuser support: There were some rumours that multiuser support would be out with iOS8 itself. But it never made its way to reach the platform. But now, the time has come for Apple to allow its users to have multiple accounts. This feature will be commonly used on iPhone which is typically used by an individual; but we will get to know the value of multiple user accounts on a family iPad.
  5. Guest mode for extra security: Nowadays users are much worried about the security of their devices. So most of the people refuse to give their iPad or iPhone to others to use. So a Guest mode will be nice addition to iOS. Having this feature, users can create firewalls around their accounts so that the data can’t be stolen. So it seems like Guest mode is a much needed feature in iOS9 9.
  6. FaceTime with group video calls: FaceTime is a fantastic way to get connected through video conferencing. But it would be excellent if it supports more than one video feed at a time. Like Skype, FaceTime could also come up with the support for simultaneous video connections that allow group of people to connect through a single video call.
  7. Split-screen multitasking: Apple has been doing a great job from the past few years on the multitasking feature. However, the next option is to add split screen functionality that allow users to use two applications simultaneously. This feature would make more sense if it’s used on an iPad; but it could also work well on phones with larger screens like iPhone 6 Plus.
