The uber-popular Pokemon Go craze that's sweeping the nation is a little...broken. The servers are plagued with issues, the game randomly crashes and the iPhone version has far more access to your Google account data than it really should have.

But today, there's a new version of Pokemon Go for iOS that should fix a couple of those things. Version 1.0.1 is now available on the App Store, and it includes these fixes according to the App Store description:

  • "Trainers do not to have to enter their username and password repeatedly after a force log out"
  • "Added stability to Pokémon Trainer Club account log-in process"
  • "Resolved issues causing crashes"
  • "Fixed Google account scope"

There's no word yet on when the servers will stabilize, though.
