Previously, Google launched the Gmail app for iOS platform earlier this month on November 2nd and just after few hours of launch it was removed from the store due to several bugs which were spotted on the app. Gmail is now back on the store with the updated version which supposedly fixes the bugs.
It was really careless of Google putting their main app on the store with such bugs, seems like the Search giant didn’t have the time to test the app before launching it before. Still many people wouldn’t have experienced the problem, as the buggy version of Gmail was available for just few hours. Its much likely that many users didn’t download the new version back then.
In case you are one of those users who didn’t download the initial version released back then and are wondering what bugs did Gmail encountered. The initial version contained a bug which broke notifications and displayed error messages, along with some other minor bugs.
