Google+ Submitted for iOS App Store

In addition to being available on Android, as well as via mobile site, Google+ is currently awaiting approval to be included in the iOS App Store, which will mean that iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users will have mobile access to the social network. Google engineer, Erica Joy, posted on her Google+ page, "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."

Want to get in on the hangouts?

May soon be available for iOS



Between Google's other social networks that Google+ has (fairly or unfairly) been compared to, i.e. Buzz and Wave, this is the first effort that Google's made for one of its social services being available in the iOS App Store. In some ways, it was already guess-able that they would do it, it was just a matter of when. The fact that it's so soon after the web launch is a surprise. It is not know when Apple will approve (or disapprove) of the app and when it will hit the App Store. Are you on Google+ yet? Will you download an iOS app when it becomes available?
