Punit Soni, Lead Product Manager of Google+ Mobile, has posted an update to the Google+ iPhone app problems. Apple released the test version of the app which didn’t have the bug fixes. The version that was served by Apple app stores to few unlucky users is 1.0.1765. The correct version should be 126.96.36.1999. If you download now from iTunes, then you should be just fine. iTunes store is now serving the correct version.
We discovered an issue with the version of the iPhone Google+ App that was on the App Store. When we launched, the App Store started serving a previous test version of the App which didn’t have the stability and fixes that the latest version had. It started serving the correct version a little later. If you downloaded within the first 1 hour 40 mins, you may have downloaded the older test version.
– Click on the gear icon on the top left of your App’s homescreen and look right above the Help button, the version number of the App should be: 188.8.131.529
– If that is not the version number, then please uninstall and reinstall by clicking on the link below:http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google/id447119634?ls=1&mt=8 (Link)
