Google employee Erica Joy recently revealed that Google has officially submitted the Google+ application to Apple’s App Store and is awaiting approval. Joy also went on to mention that the app will be available for both, iPhone and iPad.
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 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.
Google+ app for iOS devices should be available on the App Store very soon. Apple usually accepts apps into the App Store after a short waiting period.
Facebook was also rumored to release an official iPad app, however, they have not produced any results or set a time frame as to when will they roll out an app for Apple’s tablet. Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that iPad isn’t a mobile device, it’s a computer. So, the social networking giant is probably taking some time to make sure they come up with an extraordinary app which will make it worth the wait. There are a number of paid and free third party iPad apps for Facebook available on the App Store which have proved to be hugely popular among users.
Google+ is expected to compete directly with Facebook after it gains some footing. Are you using Google+? Do you like it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
