'Buggy' Google Voice App Pulled from App Store Following iOS 5 Crash

Google has pulled its Google Voice app from the App Store following concerns raised by many because the app was crashing on iOS5.

The exact reason or source behind the crash hasn't been made public and there is no clarity whatsoever in regards to the combination of smart phone model and iOS 5 where the Google Voice app is crashing Engadget (opens in new tab) reports.

No peculiarities were noticed by Engadget when their team fired up the newest version of Google Voice on his iPhone 4 that runs on iOS 5. However, before the App was pulled from the App Store the number of reviews listed showed that the app crashes as soon as the users try to sign in.

In an interview with Engadget, the senior product manager for Google Voice, Vincent Paquet said, "Our last update of this week had a bug that caused the app to crash at sign in. We removed it so it did not affect additional users until the fix gets published."

Paquet also said that the team of Google Voice has been able to figure out the source of the crashing and reportedly, they are working on a fix. No ETA has been announced though for the fix yet.
