(Newser) – Google is trying again with its Gmail app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch after its first attempt two weeks proved to be a quick failure. The new app is out today, and Business Insider reports progress: It loads this time without errors, and Google fixed the problem related to notifications. It's still pretty basic, though, notes ReadWriteWeb, meaning users can't do things like check multiple accounts. "For now, little has changed about the app that many panned as insufficient for a native Gmail app," writes Jon Mitchell. Google promises upgrades soon in a blog post.

A second version of the Gmail app is now available.
