Google Kills Off BlackBerry Gmail App 7th Nov 2011

Google Kills Off BlackBerry Gmail App

Google, a company willing to write software for anything with a screen, has killed off its Gmail app for BlackBerry. As of 20th November 2012, the app will no longer be available for download. And — in a move which would have the open-source beardos crowing if Apple did it — the app will no longer be supported.

If you already have the app, it will continue to work, and of course you can still use the web-based version of Gmail to access your mail. Maybe Google is just mimicking RIM itself, whose PlayBook launched without a native e-mail client?

This news comes as Google is in the middle of launching the iOS Gmail, although given the quality and attention to detail of that bug-ridden application, maybe Google is doing BlackBerry owners a favor.
