Apple won't let you share directly to Google+, so Google's doing something about it

As it sits now, if you want to share a photo to Google+ from your iPhone, you need to take a photo with the Camera app, leave the app, and launch Google+.

According to the Google+ Developers Blog, Google plans on changing that with a Google+ iOS SDK for developers.
