While We Await The Native App, The Google+ iPhone Mobile Web App Is Pretty Solid
After the big launch today, some of those lucky enough to get a Google+ invite were still left out in the cold a bit: iPhone users. You see, 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.
