Though high school kids may struggle to remember a time before rapid-fire online communication, those of us who’ve made it beyond puberty can recall the not-so-distant past before social networks and smartphones. We remember sending an email to a friend and knowing it might be hours before that friend saw it in his or her inbox. We remember using instant messengers as our primary real-time communicators, simple tools for virtual chatting that seemed high-tech at the time.
In the beginning we had Hotmail. I remember creating my Hotmail account way back in 1998 with 10MB and it was considered a lot of space. When Google came out with Gmail, the company revolutionised email as we knew it to be with 1GB of space.
Sparrow, the popular mail client for Mac and iPhone has been acquired by Google for $25m. It should be a matter of time before Google integrates its features into Gmail. We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
Your iPod and iPad comes inbuilt with Apple’s mail program which allows you to configure your email accounts including Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. However, if you’re an exclusive Gmail user or is your main email account, like many people I know, you might want to consider the official Gmail app from Google. The latest version of the app includes: Notification Center support with Banners, alerts and lock screen notification options “Send-as”: Alternate sender support, if configured within Gmail Persistent logins so that you don’t need to keep logging in at very frequent intervals For those who have Gmail as their main email account, a good idea is to configure Gmail to allow you to fetch email from your other accounts and / or send email from a different address.
Gmail introduced themes back in 2008. Since then there have been several enhancements including the addition of HD images. Taking this yet another step further, Google announced that you can now create custom themes in Gmail.
