Google+ official iPhone app is here, no more waiting

Official Google+ iPhone app

Finally, the official Google+ iOS app is available for download from App Store.  A brief summary of what we’ve got:

  • Currently this app is available in some regions’ app stores only.  US app store users can download it.
  • Some users reported that the app could not be installed on iPod Touch.  Anyone could confirm?
  • According to some iPad users, this app is tailor-made for iPhone, which means that you don’t get a special user interface to utilize the screen real estate
  • Only Stream, Circles, Photos and Huddle are provided
  • No auto syncing of your photos to Picasa (of course, otherwise how could the coming iCloud survive?)
  • The Stream part is almost the same as the mobile web version, which means that you don’t get much additional function from the iOS version.  (the sign-in screen is simply the mobile web page…)
  • The first version launched in App Store is a defective one.  If you downloaded it within the first 1 hour 40 mins, please update it from App store. (According to Punit Soni, Lead Product Manager, Google+ Mobile)
