If you were lucky enough to get a beta invitation for Google+ and have an iPhone, you can already post updates and browse your Google+ streams quickly and easily. In just a few steps you'll be posting updates, checking out your friends' streams, adding them to circles, and more!

As a side note, this tip only works if you already accepted an invitation into the beta, otherwise you won't be able to access Google+.

  1. First go to www.google.com from Safari on your iPhone and sign into your Google account with your Gmail address.
  2. Next tap more at the top right and you'll see a few tabs. Tap the Apps tab.
  3. Click the Google+ app and you'll be taken into the main feed.
  4. Next, create a bookmark on your home screen. Simply tap the arrow on the bottom of your browser and tap Add to home screen.

  5. Now all you have to do to access Google+ is to tap that bookmark!

As a side note, if you have to sign in every time, you can remedy that by simply choosing to stay signed into your Google account. If you've been using Google+ let us know what you think. Do you expect more than the web app if and when they release an iPhone app?
