Dave Martorana has launched Mailroom [iTunes], an iPhone app that aims to improve the workflow of Gmail and Google Apps email accounts, according to the IndyHall newsletter. The application is meant for power users who manage several accounts. It includes an attachment viewer and its own native Web browser.
