    Download: New Gmail Version 2.2.1

    [​IMG]

    While messing around with a couple of new ROMs for my Incredible last night, I noticed the Gmail app doing some things I had never seen before up in the header. It now included a reply/reply to all/forward button in the header which made like instantly awesome. At first I had brushed it off as some new 2.2 Sense feature that HTC was including, but after seeing another post this morning on the same Gmail amazing-ness, I now get it, and have slapped myself 4 times for not realizing it sooner.
    So yeah, we have a new version of Gmail, which seriously, is so amazing. From the shot above, you can see a couple of the new features listed out:




    • New header design makes it easier to reply or star messages.
    • Performance boost for most features.
    • Lots more cool stuff you

    I don't know that I'd download a gmail app from mega-upload. Not sayin there's anything malicious about it, as it's probably safe and being passed around from Android enthusiasts... just as a matter of principle, I would only get it straight from Google.

    I'll be where I'm at!
    It happened for you or you installed it manually?

    One new thing that I noticed today is that I can now download attachments in the app. Not sure if others have been able to do this or not, but I had to go to the web version in the past.

    This is indeed a new thing. In the past one needed to use Attachment saver apps.

    Isn't this suppose to already BE in Froyo or is this an updated version? If it's an updated version, wouldn't you be able to just update from the Market?

    What am I missing here? :thinking:

    It hasn't officially been released yet. 2.2.1 was ripped from a leaked rom and posted on XDA. I've been using it for a few days now and it's been fine.

    Well I see no difference. Photos are shown with both 'Download' and 'Preview' buttons as before and the video someone sent to me only has a 'Preview' button.

    If you install this, it will install over your current GMail client and when you uninstall you will have no GMail at all. Maybe back up your current GMail and then try.

    That is incorrect. If you go into applications under Gmail you can just uninstall the update without losing the Gmail
