Gmail Priority Inbox comes to iPhone

Gmail Priority Inbox comes to iPhone

Apple-loving Google Mail fans will be pleased to know that the much-awaited Priority Inbox is finally available to users of the iDevices.

Google announced via its official mobile blog: “If you’ve ever cursed a phone’s tiny screen as utterly inadequate for sifting through an overflowing inbox you’ll be pleased to hear that the Gmail mobile web app now supports Priority Inbox.

“Priority Inbox helps combat information overload by automatically identifying your important messages so you can focus on those first.”

Up until now, the clever mail-sorting feature was only available to desktop and Android web browsers. It is now accessible iOS 3+ running devices when you visit the Gmail website from the Safari browser.

For those unaware of what exactly Priority Inbox does, it essentially sifts through your mail to cleverly predict which mails are more important to you based on mails you most often read and reply to, and then over time shifts the ones you’re more likely to open right to the top.

If you’re still unsure, here’s a video Google prepared to teach you all you need to know:
