Manipulate your Gmail from the Android notification bar

on March 19, 2013 8:00 am


Got the latest Gmail client for your Android 4.1.x (Jellybean) device yet? The new version allows you to choose if you want to archive or reply to a new email directly from your notification bar without having to open the client. Handy for short emails but not quite so good for longer ones :)

I’ve been with Gmail from its early betas when you had to try and swap something for an invitation and it just keeps getting better and better (on all platforms).

    Ian, I just updated Gmail on my Galaxy Tab 2 last night and haven’t used this feature yet.
    I’ve also been with them early betas… remember how many years Gmail was in beta? :)

    The original Gmailswap site was loaded with offers for goods and services for a gmail invitation and it’s not archived but here’s an interesting and quick article that shows how desirable just an invitation was :)

    Ian, I was able to bag an invite from a commenter to a post on Lifehacker where folks put any extra invites they might have.

    I noticed today. It’s a neat feature. Would’ve been perfect if it had a “Delete” icon; that would be useful for those short emails you mentioned.
