GMail iOS 5

Today Google updated their iOS 5 GMail app. After a disastrous app launch last month, Google have added a feature that extends GMail in a new and exciting way. They’ve added a feature called Scribbles that allows you to create and share doodles, drawings, hand drawn maps etc. directly from the GMail app. A small range of brushes, sizes and colours are available and the scribble automagically attaches as a png to your email.

Keep ’em coming Google 🙂

  1. Hello, My name is Jeni Stovall and I am a student in Dr. Strange’s EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. This would definitely be an app I would have on my phone if I had one. I hope it is still available when I get my smart phone in a few months! I only have one criticism on your blog and that is that you wrote “Google have added” instead of “Google has added”. I hop you continue to post interesting finds to your blog!

  2. I hadn’t heard of this app. Sounds like a cool idea. Are the brushes thin enough for you to actually a street map and have it come out legible to the person who receives it?

  3. Hello! I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. I think it’s pretty exciting about being able to share doodles and such. I don’t have a google app on my iTouch yet, but I would like to download it to try this nifty idea. Thanks for sharing!


  4. Hello, I’m a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. This app sounds pretty cool. I wonder if it will be available for android phones?

  5. Hello again! I’m glad that you shared this on your blog. I am just now becoming more familiar with the wonders of Google, and wasn’t aware of this feature. I’m already thinking of ways that it could be incorporated into a lesson as a fun way for students to play games like “Draw Something” regarding lessons. This is my final teacher post for the summer semester of EDM 310 with Dr. John Strange. I have enjoyed viewing your blog and getting to know you through Twitter. I will be checking back in for your words of wisdom as I complete my degree, and hopefully to exchange ideas when I begin teaching. Feel free to check out my blog at
    Thanks! Christie Mason
