A while ago, we ran a feature asking Gmail to implement a third button to allow users to mark email as read straight from the expanded notification shade. One developer decided to take the idea and run with it, and went on to create MarkAsRead to let users rock a third button. Its latest update to version 1.21 brings with it the ability to mark an email as read and archive at the same time, plus there are design tweaks.
The update is fairly meaty for an app of this sort, and the most major change is likely the ability to mark emails as read and archive with one button press, a feature I see myself using.
The other major tidbit is a new “Extended Notifications” style that keeps Gmail’s features like cross-platform sync intact. Also added is LightFlow support for Extended Notifications, and the developer mentions that we’ll be seeing support for regular notifications in a future LightFlow update.
- MarkAsRead AND Archive in one action!
- Updated look
- New “Extended Notification” style for that better preserves gmail notification settings (Moto X, cross-platform sync, etc.)
- Supports all labels
- Notification & Lightflow support fixed with new “Extended Notifications”. Regular Notification setting will also support Lightflow in Lightflow’s upcoming update
Anyone rocking this app?
