    Has anyone tried the new Gmail app update? It moved from 4.3 to 4.5...

    http://lifehacker.com/gmail-for-andr...gati-511061329

    I tried it for a few hours and moved back to the previous version. Unless I was missing something it required me to hit the menu button and choose Delete in order to delete a message. The old version had the trash can at the bottom, one click less. I guess that wouldn't make much difference if you don't get many emails. There are some other cool in the upgrade so you might want to give it a whirl.

    The Google Play Store doesn't show me any update for the Gmail app (4.3.1)

    I think there a link to the apk in the article. Google is rolling this out in phases, as usual, so you might not see it in the Play Store right away

    I was pissed about that too at first, since you could swipe it away in the tablet version already but not swipe to delete.

    But I think the reasoning is that archiving and deleting are essentially the same thing. It's like a trash can on your computer. Except that the old mail is on Google servers instead and not cluttering up your phone.

    So theoretically, it does you no harm to just archive, and you don't risk deleting something important permanently.

    If google wants to pay the cost of keeping billions of unwanted emails on their servers, so be it I suppose.

    True about Google providing all that free storage. Every account is limited as to total storage so that could become an issue down the road. My bigger concern, and what should maybe move higher up anyone's flagpole, is that whatever is stored is also searchable by the government. Who knows what you might say today could be construed as for or against whoever might be in office down the road. Current events show that there can no longer be any level of total trust on that area.

    Not that I think my own emails fall in that category, but I value my privacy. When I delete I want it deleted.

    LOL, I'm the same way... But I've realized that keeping the government from digging through your web history is like telling the Hulk that you'd really rather not hug.

    I found a way to get the delete button back on the new Gmail app...

    I had looked through all the menus, not sure how I missed it but glad I found it now.

    I think it's a pretty good update
