The Local Guides, Google's most trusted and frequent users of the Google Maps/local business reviews, are complaining that the Google app for them to leave reviews of places they visit is buggy.

In short, it repeatedly asks them to add their name to their account - even though they have a name on their account and they've added their name over and over again.

Here is a screen shot from Aaron Kasten on Google+ who wrote, "+Local Guides​ this is quite annoying, I can't add my name any more than it's already been added. I haven't been able to leave any mobile reviews for a while, I can answer questions though. "

Google Local Guides App Bug

It might have something to do with Google dropping the Google+ requirement for leaving local reviews?

That is one quick way to alienate and annoy your top Google Maps contributors.
