Gmail for iOS Wishlist

I had previously written about my experiences with Gmail 2.0 for iOS, and I concluded my article with the decision that I would stick with the stock iOS mail app. For the time being, I have gone back to using GMail 2.0 on my iPhone, as I have found that my overall GMail experience is in fact better within GMail 2.0, but I have some suggestions (just in case anyone from Google happens upon this) for the improvement for this app...

Go to Suggestion #1


The ability to share attachments from Google Drive...




Go to suggestion #2

The ability to sign out of one account without signing out of them all...

Go to suggestion #3

Completely overhaul the way that HTML emails are rendered. Take away the margins on the sides and use the entire canvas for the email display. Take a look at the screenshot to the right, and you will see the margins, which take up valuable space that could be used to make the email content readable.

Go to suggestion #4

The ability to delete all items in the trash at once, rather than having to manually check each item and then delete.

I would also like to see Google incorporate to-do style actions into GMail for iOS. Mailbox looks great, but I am not keen on giving my Google account credentials to a third-party and letting it access my Google account on my behalf until I know more about their security practices, other than the standard spiel about them using SSL and not storing passwords. I would also like to see the app itself load up a bit faster than it currently does.
