Google rolls out some improvements to Gmail mobile for iPhone and iPod touch. "First, scrolling is snappier: the speed of scrolling reflects the speed of your swipe gesture. This's helpful for long conversations where a few quick flicks will get you the info.

Second, the toolbars stay on screen while you're scrolling rather than moving down into view after each scroll. Being able to access your toolbars from any point on the page should make it easier to triage your email and move around the app," Google said.

You can see these improvements by visiting gmail.com from the browser on iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS4 (English-only for now). And if you like Gmail in mobile Safari, make getting to it easier by tapping the "+" at the bottom of the screen and then "Add to Home Screen."
