Updated: Nest pulls iOS app update after many crash reports
Tuesday we told you that a Nest update was on the way, but today ... not so fast. The company has yanked the app that controls Nest Thermostats and Smoke Detectors after several reports of crashes, mainly on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices.

Nest acknowledged the issue on its Twitter feed. saying "We're currently investigating an issue causing the Nest iOS app version 4.4.0 to quit unexpectedly. We'll provide a status update shortly."

Google purchased Nest for US$3.2 billion in February to enhance its smart home offerings.

There is no timetable for an update. If you downloaded the app before it was pulled, don't install it until the fix becomes available. If you already have it, and it's working on your i-Device, don't sweat it at this point as your hardware may not be among those that had problems with the app.

Note: Nest has issued an updated version of the app.
