Google Plus app for iOS device will soon be released once Apple approves it for its devices. Erica Joy, executive support technician at Google, said this in a blog posting posted on her Google+ social network account.
We already reported that Google is working on the iPhone following its freshly launched Google+ App for Android devices.
Last month, we reported that popular social network Facebook is working on a Facebook app for iPad and touted it to be a major announcement.
Dubbed as Project Spartan, the Facebook App for iPad will offer full screen photo and video resolutions for the tablet. Besides, Facebook is also reportedly working with third-party developers over the app and its chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg himself is said to be “heavily investing” in the app. Obviously Facebook is looking to lure all the iPad owners with its new app.
In order to gain the lead in social network app competition, Google has already submitted the Google Plus iOS app that could be for both iPhone and iPad.
Joy didn’t confirm which app it would be but, based on her follow up, it is expected that the app is likely to hit iPad and iPhone together.
The Google+ App for Android is quite sleek, neat and quick in terms of function. Its instant upload feature allows publishing photos in matter of few seconds. However, its group chat option, Huddle, appears as separate app once the users have synced their Google accounts to the Google+ App.
Similar approach is likely to be taken for the Apple iPad 2 that comes with camera at the back as well as the front. That way the users would be able to quickly share the images through Google Plus.
An interesting part is that both Facebook and Google are counting heavily on Apple’s iOS platform for gaining popularity of their respective social network. It is no secret that Apple iPad has started contributing to larger audience that browses web on the tablet.
Facebook is planning to launch “something big” later this month and it is said to be the party spoiler for Google. At this moment, both sides are working on their projects diligently. It is just matter of weeks till Apple approves Google+ app and the new Facebook App for iPad.
