Google’s Priority Inbox for Gmail automatically sorts your important messages from junkmail by examining the way you read and respond to incoming email messages. To date, the feature has only been available using a desktop web browser or the latest Gmail app for Google Android. But today Google rolled out Priority Inbox for the mobile web which means you can take advantage of the feature using an iPhone or other devices with a supported mobile browser.

You’ll need to enable Priority Inbox in a desktop browser to get started. But after that’s done you can open Gmail on any supported mobile device and view the new Important and unread section at the top of the menu. When you click on that area, you’re taken to a new page that just shows your top messages.

From the Everything or Starred area, you can view your priority messages thanks to little yellow arrows next to select items in your inbox.
