Its hard to blame email, though, since most apps we use for managing it can only communicate via IMAP, an age-old standard thats slow and difficult to work with. When Google announced its Gmail API a few weeks ago, it seemed like we might finally have an answer to the question we’ve all been asking: when is email going to start working like the rest of our apps? Google announced that any app could now talk to Gmail using today’s faster, more modern languages — languages that every web developer speaks. The Gmail API lets you ask Google for threads, messages, drafts, and labels three to ten times faster than with IMAP, Google says — but, the company says that it shouldn’t be used to replace IMAP.
