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

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.
