Gmail app updated with background fetch

gmail app icon

Version 3.0 of Google’s Gmail iOS app will now automatically refresh in the background, downloading any new email to your device without requiring you to open the app first. This functionality — new under iOS 7 – will be a welcome addition for most users. Previously, the app would send a push notification for new email, but it wouldn’t download the email until the app was open.
