Update: Google’s official statement following Gmail drop from Apple App Store

The iPhone and iPad app for Google’s Gmail service has been pulled from Apple’s App Store today following reports that the software spawned errors in the notifications system.

The app was launched just yesterday and early adopters of Gmail on their Apple gadgets were confronted with the message “no valid ‘aps-environment’ entitlement string found for application” when attempting to view notification alerts connected to their accounts and Google has embarrassingly updated its launch Blog for Gmail for iOS and has now issued an official mini-statement regarding the difficulties after earlier admitting the fault via Twitter:

“Earlier today we launched a new Gmail app for iOS. Unfortunately, it contained a bug which broke notifications and caused users to see an error message when first opening the app. We’ve removed the app while we correct the problem, and we’re working to bring you a new version soon. Everyone who’s already installed the app can continue to use it.”

The Gadget Helpline covered the launch, and pull, of the Gmail app on Apple’s App Store and detailed the new features that user will be able to enjoy once the software is reinstated. Read the article – HERE.
