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.

The new version supports multiple Gmail accounts. Some people might find that useful, but I've got all of my various email addresses -- I've got six or seven at this point -- forwarding to one spot, in iOS Mail. iOS does not support multiple accounts, however, so I could see this feature being useful if more than one person uses the same device. Then again, I would get notified about other people's emails.
