Google+ iPhone version hits the App Store
The Google+ app for iPhone has landed in the App Store, just three weeks after the social network went live.
The app, which was expected (although maybe not this quickly), brings all of your circles, streams and huddles to your 3.5-inch screen.
Released without any real fanfare, the official description reads:
"Google+ for mobile makes sharing the right things with the right people a lot simpler. Huddle lets you send super-fast messages to the people you care about most. And no matter where you are, the stream lets you stay in the loop about what your friends are sharing and where they’re checking in."
Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page confirmed recently that the company's new social network has moved past 10 million users, despite the fact that it is still in a limited field trial period, and that people are sharing over 1 billion items per day; an average of 100 shares per user, per day.
The Google+ iPhone app is free, and in the App Store now.
UPDATE: Looks like Apple pushed out the wrong version. Naughty Apple. Full statement from the Lead Product Manager for Google+ Mobile, Punit Soni, on Google+ of course:
"We discovered an issue with the version of the iPhone Google+ App that was on the App Store. When we launched, the App Store started serving a previous test version of the App which didn't have the stability and fixes that the latest version had. It started serving the correct version a little later. If you downloaded within the first 1 hour 40 mins, you may have downloaded the older test version.
- Click on the gear icon on the top left of your App's homescreen and look right above the Help button, the version number of the App should be: 188.8.131.529
