Google+ for iOS submitted to the App Store, waiting for approval

Google+ for iOS submitted to the App Store, waiting for approval
Google's new social network Google+ launched as a humble project, but we all know what's at stake for Google here as it aims straight at the ubiquitous Facebook. Not surprisingly, a Google+ app for Android has been rolled out shortly after the launch of the service, but iOS users were left in the dark with only a web interface for access to the new social network, but no native app. 

Or at least so it seemed initially, but now it appears that the search giant has already submitted a Google+ application to the App Store, and it is waiting for Apple's blessing, according to Erica Joy, a support technician at Google:

"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," Joy pointed out in a Google+ post. Later, she specified that the application is for iOS devices in general, not just the iPhone.

Puzzlingly, as an iOS app with support for the iPad has been submitted, the current Android app isn't optimized for Honeycomb tablets and appears weirdly stretched out. Let's not forget, though, that the service is still in invite-only beta stage, and has yet to evolve. Google has promised to release APIs for programmers to build their own Google+ apps, so we can imagine seeing some powerful solutions when this happens. For the time being, though, only Android has the application, so feel free to check out our detailed look at the Google+ app here.

Google+ is actually really cool. I like it. It's simple, clean, good graphics, easy to use, with some surprising and desirable functionality- reminds me of Facebook back before Zuckerberg shoved his head up his ass.

And it's simply a ripoff of Facebook.

I'm not even going to bother explaining how stupid that sounds because they are two entirely different platforms.

Then I can say the same thing about G+
