Gmail users have enjoyed some ups and downs in recent days. First, an upgraded iPhone app was released on December 4. The update finally made it possible to configure multiple accounts. On December 10, Gmail users plummeted into a panic on Twitter when the mail service briefly crashed. The downtime
The overall availability of iPhone mail clients hasn't come short, in terms of numbers. With this year's notable release of Sparrow for Gmail, the total number of mail apps, both third-party and official, can be a bit overwhelming for iPhone users. Mailbox, announced two days ago, is an application set for launch next year that aims to bring a totally revamped experience iPhone owners who are also mutual users of Gmail's email services.

8 Track Mind is an innovative musical puzzle game where the goal is to reproduce the original music by engaging specific music samples. When you start, a track is played for you to remember.

The great part is that you're not penalized for hitting the wrong pads, so you can listen to each one to figure out which fits with the original.
