Even though the Nexus 7 shipped with Google’s native Gmail client, which was drastically improved in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it wasn’t optimized for the screen space. In the latest update, Google has rectified the problem and has outfitted the app with many little niceties that make working in Gmail even better on the 7-inch 1280×800 tablet.

One area, however, in which Google seems to be missing the boat is the ability to zoom in and out of emails. We’ve been asking for this feature for years and for whatever reason — patent-related or otherwise — Google has been silent on this matter. Even without that feature, it’s still the best email experience on mobile.

There are a few added bug fixes to go along with the improved 7-inch tablet support, so hit up Google Play to download the update.

    -Don’t forget to tighten the screws.
    -These white spots are really great, for that price.
    -Your nexus 7 have charging problems ?
    -App not responding… Task killer, why ?

    Enough for today, peace out.
