A few weeks ago, Google has officially unveiled its latest Social product called Google+, hoping to compete with other popular social networking websites, such as Facebook and Twitter. We first saw the Google+ app for Android platform. Now the iPhone app has finally made its entry to iTunes stores through Apple’s approval process. The Google+ app for iPhone is available for the U.S. regions only. An internal version should be rolled out soon, and this is not an universal app, so the iPad users still have to wait for the tablet compatible version of the Google+ app. The Google+ app is having an interesting approach to social networking. Google+ for iPhone looks a lot like the Android app, and it gives you access to your Stream, photos, Circles, Photos to see other’s posts or access your photo posts and Picasa albums, your Google Profile section and the Huddle group-messaging app, and the application ties in about every Google+ feature
The Google+ for iPhone app also features Push Notifications and the users can take photos and the image gets pushed up to a private album an Instant Upload feature, and the album will appear on Google+ and Picasa simultaneously. Users can also share their locations. The Google+ app works on iPhone, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G only. The previously released Google+ Android app is having NFC functionality. We are not sure yet whether or not the Google+ iPhone app is having the NFC functionality too.
Note: The early adopters of the Google+ iPhone app should note that the test version of this app did not include a number of bug fixes. If you grabbed the app as soon as it was available, you’ll likely have remove the app and reinstall to get the newer version with the bug fixes.
The iPhone users can now download the Google+ app from iTunes App Store (hit the link) for free, which is weighing at size of 5.3MB. The iPhone should be running with iOS 3.1 or later versions.
