Users of the Google Gmail app will be happy to hear it has been updated to support the larger iPhone 5 screen. The update brings with it a larger area for reading email as well as allowing more emails to be displayed on the screen at a single time. The app retains its ability to send push notifications for new messages.

That's really the only thing different from the older version, so if you don't own an iPhone 5, you can skip this update. For the iPhone 5 owners, updated apps that take advantage of the larger screen area are much appreciated. The app is available for download from the Apple App Store.
