Google just released a massive new update to their Gmail app for iOS, bring the version up to 2.0. The update gains a host of new features, including multiple account support, predictive search, infinite scrolling in the inbox, better Google service integration, and more.

In many ways, the update takes from Sparrow for iOS, which Google acquired a few months back, especially in terms of simplicity, and really narrows down the list of complaints than many have had with previous versions. Despite the apparent Sparrow-ness of the update, MG Seigler of TechCrunch claims that the Sparrow team was not directly involved.
Gmail for iOS 2.0 is a massive overhaul. It’s simpler, faster, packs in great new features, and has a great new UI. It’s definitely a must-have update, and is available immediately through the App Store.
