The app is small and nonintrusive, but hopefully still has all the features a Mac user would want. With it you can:
– view messages without opening a browser
– open Gmail in your browser without forcing you to log in again
– make Gmail your default email program
– even more…
For those of you who don’t have a Gmail account yet go to gmail.com and get signed up. The new authentication process uses your cell phone to prove your a breathing human being… pretty slick. If you already have an account for one of Google’s other services and you use the same username/email address setting up Gmail then your Gmail account will take over as your identifier for those services… does that make any sense? Maube it’s just me.
