At long last, Gmail’s swipe actions are coming to iOS

With its latest update, the Gmail iOS app finally lets you customize what happens when you spend your emails. Five different actions are supported, including archiving or deleting emails, marking them as read or unread, postponing, archiving or moving them to a different folder. You can also assign different actions to movements to the left or to the right.

The update makes the functionality of the Gmail iOS application in line with its Android equivalent. Until recently, the iOS application only allowed you to archive or delete emails when you swipe, and swiping in any direction would do the same. The update comes as part of a broader redesign announced by Google in January.

The functionality is available in the latest version of the Gmail application, which began its release yesterday, but could take up to 15 days to be available to Everyone, according to Google. Once downloaded, you can change what the slip does by going to the Settings menu and selecting Sliding Actions.
