On Wednesday, Google announced that it had relaunched its official
app, after launching and almost immediately removing it due to
glitches earlier this month.
Product Manager Matthew Izatt wrote on the Official Gmail Blog:
At the time of the original launch, the Gmail blog said the app,
which can be used on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, was optimized for
speed, efficiency and touch.
According to The Huffington Post's Jason Gilbert, the app's most
important new feature is speed: "It brings "push notifications" for
Gmail to iDevices for the first time, meaning that you can now be
notified the moment a new message hits the Gmail servers, just by
glancing at the screen of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch."
The app is now available for download in the iTunes store.

I love the "push notifications" feature!!!...[continuous improvement in] speed and efficiency is of course the basic principle of technology...
