Flipboard to start pulling in Google Plus content

Flipboard, the hugely popular social reader app for iOS, will be among the first to feature integration with Google's social network, Google+. Google's VP of Product Management recently revealed in an interview that Flipboard will soon be able to pull in stories shared by friends on Google+, much as the app can already for Facebook and Twitter. This is a big deal because Google has been taking their sweet time opening up a developer API to their fledgling social network.

Google's own take at the reader application, Currents, hasn't come very far, and given the abundance of competition on iOS, odds are it won't any time soon. I guess If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Google's big annual developer conference is next week, so with any luck they'll creak open the door to Google Plus for at least a few more partners there.

How many of you are active on the network? Does it offer you anything that you don't get on Facebook? Are there any other apps that you're dying to get Google+ integration with? (If you're looking to swap Google+ IDs and get into more great conversations, check out our iMore Google+ list!)
