Following on the heels of Netflix (NFLX), Google (GOOG) has updated yet another key iOS app to fit onto the iPhone 5’s larger four-inch screen. As MacRumors writes, the latest version of Gmail released onto the App Store on Friday has been “optimized for the iPhone 5,” although Google doesn’t say whether this optimization involves anything other than adjusting for new screen size. Although smaller app developers have griped about not having enough time to adjust their apps to the iPhone 5’s larger screen, the big players so far have had no problem updating their apps in a timely fashion.
