Google alerts of iOS Gmail bug that deletes your email

In a world like the one we have today, the importance of your email is both significant and common. Sadly, bugs on mobile applications are just as common, and the probability having both of these mix together can lead into very unpleasant surprises.

Google has just alerted its customers on a major bug that it faces with its iOS mobile application. If you launch the app you’ll notice that the company is giving you a notification regarding the possibility of some of your email being deleted. The bug was apparently sending your desired email to the trash or your spam folder during January 15th and January 22nd. Google is assuring us all that the problem is fixed, but they still encourage everyone to continue checking the spam or trash folder until February 14th.

Obviously for those of us that rely on Gmail for work through Google Apps, this is a major problem, but hopefully it’ll be something that won’t happen again. Just remember there are also Gmail alternatives like “Mailbox” that we highly recommend, even if you haven’t been affected by this bug.
