Google’s Google+ for iPhone app should be landing in the App Store within the next 2 weeks according to the big G, after confirming that it has submitted the app to Apple for approval.

The new app, which only works for those who have access to the new closed beta service, promises to give Google+ users the chance to catch up on their new found friends and the social network from a dedicated app rather than just the mobile website currently available.

Google+ Face Off: Android App Vs. iOS Browser -- InformationWeek

Google+ Face Off: Android App Vs. iOS Browser -- InformationWeek | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
When Google+ launched this week, Google also released an application for Android devices. iOS devices have to make do with the browser version for now. Is it any good?

The Android app has one major leg-up on the iPhone, however: It allows users to shoot and upload images directly from the application. With iOS, there doesn't appear to be a way to upload images directly from the handset.

The other major advantage the Android app has over iOS is that it works with the Huddle. Huddle is the group messaging tool that is meant to help small groups coordinate with one another.

While We Await The Native App, The Google+ iPhone Mobile Web App Is Pretty Solid - Techcrunch

While We Await The Native App, The Google+ iPhone Mobile Web App Is Pretty Solid - Techcrunch | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
While the Google+ Android app was there ready to go on day one, the iPhone app remains in review with Apple. But fear not iPhone users, there is a little hidden gem you may not know about: a mobile web version of Google+ that works great in Safari.

If you simply point your iOS Safari browser to plus.google.com, you’ll find a solid web app written in HTML5. You can’t do quite everything you’ll be able to with the native app, such as Huddle (group chat). But it the main parts of the Google+ functionality are there. Stream, Photos, Circles, Profile, and Notifications appear in the main menu.

The Rise Of The Mobile Social Network - Google+ app with high ratings - TNW Mobile

Right now, we are in the middle of the smartphone boom. Apple, Google and other mobile operating system vendors have provided the foundations for developers to launch innovative services that add extra functionality to powerful new mobile phones.

In just six days, the Google+ app already has an average rating of 4.4, with 6478 users rating it the full five stars.
If Google stands any chance of denting Facebook’s dominance, it has to account for the majority of mobile users. By releasing a web-app, an Android app and a dedicated app for the iPhone, it gives itself a good shot at converting casual searchers but also providing enough of a presence to go up against Facebook.
