Now this is not good news. Gmail is killing it’s Blackberry app and I feel killing of a very important experience for Blackberry users. The client was so helpful, clean looking and functional so many will be disappointed. Google say:
Beginning November 22, 2011, we will end support for the Gmail App for Blackberry (installed native app). Over this past year, we’ve focused efforts on building a great Gmail experience in the mobile browser and will continue investing in this area.
Users may continue to use the app, if installed, however it will not be supported by Google, or available for download starting November 22. BlackBerry users can continue to access Gmail through the mobile web app at http://www.gmail.com in their BlackBerry web browser. Learn more.
So there it is, goodbye old friend.
Gmail is getting a new look and we’re loving it:
