Mailroom Mail Client for IPhone with offline mode

Posted: March 1, 2010 in iPhone

Mailroom provides seamless integration between Gmail’s world class mobile web app and familiar iPhone conventions, along with progressive web interface enhancements for features Google left out, giving you access to your local iPhone Address Book, attachment viewing, managed offline reading/replying/composition, and more.

Whether you have a single Gmail or Google Apps for your Domain account, or several, Mailroom makes your Gmail experience on your iPhone incredible.

Data connections got you down? Mailroom’s new offline support keeps a version of your recently read and received messages on your phone, so you can read, reply, and compose messages without Edge, 3g or Wifi. Our use of HTML5 and Gmail’s offline storage also means your interactions are faster now than ever before.

Have more than one account? You’re going to love Mailroom. Moving between accounts is faster and more useful. We let you launch Mailroom from the last open account. And Mailroom’s “TrueNew” message count badges tell you not just how many unread messages you have, but how many are new since the last time you loaded the app. No more unread message anxiety thanks to Mailroom!

On “Badges” and “Push:

Mailroom customers, we heard you loud and clear about badging and push notifications. We’re believers in user experience over features, and don’t think we should give you badges and push unless they work elegantly. Badging is now available in our new settings screen, where you can choose to show either the unread count or our “TrueNew” count on the Mailroom icon badge.

Unfortunately for us, our ability to update your unread and “TrueNew” counts to keep your badge updated updated via push is limited. Because of this, your badge icons will NOT update when the app is not running. The badge DOES update every time you exit the application. Our only alternative right now would be to run a service that stores your gmail usernames and passwords, and we don’t think that’s smart OR elegant. We’re committed to delivering an exceptional GMail experience with Mailroom, so when we can do it right, you can be sure that we’ll do it.
