In the past weeks Google's mobile team released a series of updates which were meant to make Gmail for Mobile look sharper and feel smoother.
The latest update also introduces a few functionality improvements like the ability to pull down to refresh the message list and conversation on all iOS and Playbook devices.
Basically, users will only need to touch the message list drag it downwards and then release it to refresh the message list.When it comes to graphics Google redesigned the icons at a higher resolution which means that the Gmail for Mobile displayed on an iPhone 4 Retina screen is now extremely sharper.
