Everyone Was Pumped For Gmail App on iPhone But Now It’s Gone Cause It Was Broke

So much silly news this morning. First a flood of ecstatic tweets about the arrival of the Gmail app on iPhone. Then a bunch of frustrated tweets about the Gmail app on iPhone. Then confused and angry tweets after Google pulled the Gmail app on iPhone.

The Next Web spotted this tweet from the Google team: “The iOS app we launched today contained a bug with notifications. We have pulled the app to fix the problem. Sorry we messed up.”

Does Apple let crappy Google apps slide through their typically stringent review process just to embarrass their Mountain View rivals?
