Just installed Gmail client on my Nokia N90. Installation was smooth, I have to point my mobile’s browser to gmail.com/app and page detected my mobile model and installation was finished within few seconds.
User interface is very similar and shortcuts are also simple to use. List of emails are updated one demand, when list is scrolled. It is optimized for mobile screen and data capabilities. Though, I don’t like the way it accepts the user-input, probably it’s made in J2ME so it uses standard input mode which is different screen to enter and then come back to main screen. I would really like if they allow data-entry in place or edit-in-place.
Overall, it’s good and I can now check flexcoders emails more often.
I am listing shortcuts (function key) here, might be useful:
- Inbox 0
- Search 1
- Compose 2
- Mark as unread 3
- Delete 7
- Report spam 8
- Archive 9
- Add start *
