Last Saturday, Apple users were just settling-in to their first weekend with their new iPhone 4S handsets, when they may have noticed an odd absence from the App Store: Google Voice was nowhere to be found. We’re huge fans of the service, so it’s easy for us to imagine plenty of users setting-up their iPhone 4S models for the first time, getting them configured with all the apps they’ll need, and scratching their heads as to why Google Voice was nowhere to be found. While they’ve been without the app all week, it makes its triumphant return to the App Store today.
So where was Google Voice? A nasty bug in the app was causing it to crash on systems running iOS 5.0, and it was deemed so severe that Google swiftly pulled it from the App Store, rather than leave a buggy app available as it crafted a fix.
Today that fix is ready, in the form of Google Voice 188.8.131.521, replacing the 184.108.40.2061 edition where the problem was first noticed. Go snag it now from the App Store if you’ve been waiting all week.
