The latest version of Gmail for the iPhone and iPad has an elegant new design -- closer to that of Google Plus -- and several new features. Some of the improvements merely bring it up-to-date with competitors. Others, such as search, should make you think about switching from Apple's Mail.

My favorite part of Gmail 2.0 is how easy it makes searching. Google's strength as a search giant comes through here as I was able to find just about any email I was able to think of. It's straightforward, intuitive, and offers the same sort of live results and suggestions as Google's Web search. It beats iOS Mail's search hands down.
