MacNetworkNews passed on Erica Joy’s commentary that the Google+ iOS apps have been submitted to the AppStore and are simply waiting to get through Apple’s approval process. To me, this is really good news. I have been playing with Google+ for a few days now and while it seems nice, it feels like ghost town.
I really think that opening up the full potential of Google+ to amy and all platforms can only help G+ gain traction. The mobile web apps are just too limited to create a compelling reason to switch from Facebook. Heck, check-ins are two steps on G+ if you want to leave a comment… and forget about taking and uploading pics on an iOS device with the web app.
From just the little time I have played with Google+, I am enamored with the idea of Circles for sharing. I have a number of different groups of folks that I like to pass different types of information depending on the group. For this purpose, email is a bit of a clunky vehicle and Facebook groups leave a lot to be desired. After playing with Google+, issues like those may be solved and NEW opportunities could arise. From a blogging and sharing perspective, I am hoping the API’s get picked up rather quickly. (@ NibiruTech @blogsyapp I am looking in your direction…)
Anyone else playing with Google+? what are your hopes for the iOS apps?
