Google has finally released its highly anticipated iPhone app for Google+ in the App Store. After several weeks of being available on the web, Google+ has not had an app for iOS, until now.

“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.”

Features include:

  • Circles let you share the right things with just the right people.
  • Stream is where you can get updates from your circles or see what people are saying about things nearby.
  • Huddle is super-fast group messaging for everyone in your circles.

The app is free and available now in the App Store. You will need to already have a Google+ account to use this official app.

Let us know what you think of the Google+ app in the comments below! Also, see our complete walkthrough of the app for more information.

UPDATE: It appears that Google has already pushed out an update for its Google+ app. (That was really quick.) Version 1.0.1 brings added support for blocking unwanted Huddle messages, attaching photos, and other “various bug fixes and performance improvements.”
