Gmail app shows up in, then disappears from, the App Store

The long-awaited Gmail app for iOS finally showed up in Apple's App Store today, only to be quickly yanked for widespread reports of serious bugs. Geez, you think they would have had it working properly after such a long wait.

The app looks to basically stick the existing Gmail web app into downloadable app form, with extra goodies such as notifications being added. But those notifications are where the bugs were hiding, causing Google to have to yank it soon after launch. But they promise that app will be back "soon," with all the kinks ironed out.
