New Gmail on the iPad.

Not sure when this happened but the Gmail app just updated on my iPad. I have to say, it is one of the best looking apps I have ever seen from Google. It is far better looking than what I have on my Android devices which seems odd. Gmail 4.2 on the phone is really nice but this is better. It has a "Google Now" feel which really works. I hope to see this migrate back to Android in the near future.

Does anyone know why iOS is getting the newer designs first? I know a similar thing happened with Google+. I hope they don't have separate UI's for each platform.
