Gmail for iOS Adds Scribbles Drawing Tool, Custom Signatures 



If you have ever wanted to send an email with just doodles or scribbles, now you can with the Gmail app for iOS and Gmail for mobile devices. 

"In the Gmail app and Gmail for mobile you can now open up a canvas and scribble a message that will be attached to your email," the Gmail blog states. "It's perfect for sending a quick sketch that is hard to express in words or adding a fun graphic to make your email more personal."
 
Scribbles offers 10 different colors, three brush sizes, lines, erasers and spray paint.

As The Next Web notes, "you can now have arts and crafts time inside of your Gmail app."

As part of the update, you can also set a custom signature for mobile messages and a vacation responder. The Gmail app also features improved labels with support for nested labels. Users with iOS5 can also enjoy a new notification sound for email.

When Google launched the Gmail app for iOS in November, it quickly pulled it from the App Store due to a bug that broke notifications. After a couple of weeks, Google re-launched the app after addressing the bugs.
 
"Behind the scenes, we're continuing to work on highly requested features like banner notifications, multiple login support and the ability to send-as from any account already configured in Gmail," the blog states. "We want to make sure these are done right as we continue to improve the Gmail app."


You can download the updated app here and works for all iOS 4+ devices.
