After what seemed like an eternity since the Google+ app for Android came out, owners of Apple's iPhone can now get in on the fun of a native Google+ app. The Google+ app offers many of the same features as its Android counterpart, though it is missing one popular option.
Instead of having to use the browser to navigate to the mobile version of Google+, iPhone users can now access the new social network through the dedicated app. You can view your stream, post updates, comment on other posts, check-in to places, create and participate in Huddle group chats, and +1 anything in sight. You can upload photos too, but the key feature of automatic photo uploading that is in the Android version is unfortunately missing from the iPhone edition, though that is not a huge surprise. The design of the app is very similar to the Android version, and you can access your Google+ notifications from the bar at the bottom of the home page.
Google+ for the iPhone is free and available for the iPhone 3G, 3GS, or 4 with iOS 3.1 or higher. An iPad-compatible version is not available at this time. Grab it in the iTunes App Store now! [via Twitter]
