Google Gets Twitter-gestions

If you have suggestions about Gmail in Mobile Safari Google Mobile invites you to, among other feedback channels, to tweet using #gmailmobile and they’ll take a look at your “Twitter-gestions” (Twitter Suggestions). Google is leveraging Twitter as a channel for suggestions & feedback for Gmail Mobile, I’m sure that’s no surprise to some.

If you use Gmail in your mobile browser a lot, you may have noticed that we recently tried several different variations of these buttons. We‘ve iterated on the design and made improvements based on your feedback. If you have more suggestions, please post them in our forum, or if you use Twitter, mention #gmailmobile and we’ll take a look. If you’re a developer and are interested in learning about the Javascript and HTML techniques we used to do this, we’ll post an article to code.google.com/mobile in the coming weeks.

On your iPhone Gmail in your mobile browser you will see 2 changes Google has made, snappier scrolling and fixed toolbars that stay on the screen during scrolling instead of floating/moving. The Google Mobile post also notes … “You can see these improvements by visiting gmail.com from the browser of iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS4 (English-only for now).”
