Official Google+ app for iPhone, iPad submitted, awaiting Apple approval

Google+ app is awaiting Apple approval and should be coming very soon

24100 noticed that Google employee Erica Joy revealed that the official Google+ app has been submitted to the App Store and is currently going through the approval process.

For my iPhone using friends: the Google+ iPhone app has been submitted to the App Store (no not today, sometime prior to today) and is awaiting approval

For anyone worried about iPad support, Joy seemingly clarified that it was also on its way:

Sorry, even though I have an iPad and not an iPhone, I always call iOS apps “iPhone apps”. I’m sure its something to do with conditioning.

How long it takes to be released is anyone's guess but wouldn't it be interesting (and embarrassing) if Google beat Facebook to iPad support?

Google+ is still in a limited beta right now but can be accessed via a web app for iPhone. I have used it for a few days now but am still not sure it is going to offer anything compelling enough to challenge Facebook and Twitter.

Official Google+ app for iPhone, iPad submitted, awaiting Apple approval


Enjoying it a lot so far, but I'm not going to bet on everyone jumping the Facebook ship when some of Google's efforts, like Wave, were a disaster.

I've been using Google+ for about a week now and I am fully ready to use it instead of Facebook. Facebook is vile. Aside from the privacy issues, which I think are blown out of scope, the sheer money generating nature of the site disturbs me. It's like looking for something under a stack of junkmail and porn. I want to chat with my brothers who live 1400 miles away. I don't want to fertilize your crops, I don't want to buy that and NO I don't know that person.
F*ck I hate Facebook....

Unless Google opens Google+ up to everyone, I see it quickly becoming the next Wave. When do we all get to use it? Been waiting for an invite (forever alone)

Hello, i think that i saw you visited my website thus i came to return the prefer?.I'm trying to find issues to improve my site!I guess its ok to use some of your ideas!!
