Google improves text copy with Gmail for Android upgrade
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) issued a small update to its Gmail application for Android smartphones. The upgrade enables long press to copy text across devices running Android 2.3, creating a more uniform approach to cutting and pasting text across the platform. The update also syncs custom label colors and fixes several bugs. The Gmail revamp is available for download now via Google's Android Market.
Google significantly overhauled Gmail for Android last fall, promising improved replies, access to quoted text in previous messages and limited support for Priority Inbox, a new tool designed to help users more efficiently filter their messages by placing the most important emails at the top. Google added at the time that Gmail updates are no longer tied to new Android operating system releases: "Now you can get new Gmail stuff faster without having to wait for system updates," wrote Gmail for Android team engineers Simon Arscott and Paul Westbrook on the Official Google Mobile Blog.
