Beta Google+ SDK now available for iOS app developers

Soon Flipboard won't be the only app to plug into Google+; Google has recently opened up an early preview to their social network's SDK for mobile developers. With these APIs, developers will be able to implement sign-up and sign-in with Google+, share and +1 buttons, and add social elements such as profiles, posts and comments. Unfortunately, end users will have to wait to enjoy these features, as the preview nature means devs can test and run their apps, but can't publish the final products just yet.

Google+ was just announced for iPad this week at the I/O developer conference, though it has yet to hit the App Store. Meanwhile, Facebook is gearing up for a big performance update, which could further cement their lead in mobile social networking.  On the developer side, Facebook has recently allowed mobile devs to add Like buttons throughout their apps - something that is just a teeny bit more popular than Google's +1.

iOS developers, for a full breakdown on how to get started with Google+, head on over to Google's documentation page. Hey, now that apps can actually start sharing to Google+, I might actually start using it. Anyone else?
