Up until now, users had to use third party or jailbroken apps to get push notifications for Gmail on their iPhones. Not anymore, though. Google just recently released an update version of their app, with all the features that people have wanted for a long time.
This update, which is free on the iTunes App Store, allows users to sign into one or multiple Google accounts, as well as setting up Gmail and Google Calendar push notifications, which work very well. It is not yet clear how quickly the app alerts you after you receive an email.
Another new feature is the ability to set “quiet times,” which turns off push notifications and sound during the hours of your choosing.
