Did you knew that there is a way to quickly write a new email on Gmail, without opening the app and following the usual and longer path?
iOS has a nice feature that people tend to forget about, that is actually really useful. If you long tap the icon of an app, you can access a little menu with some of the most useful features.
So, in Gmail’s case, long press the Gmail icon on your screen and choose Compose from the menu.
This way, the app will open directly in the compose window and can just start typing.
Pretty neat productivity tip, isn’t it?
