Google’s first real foray into the world of social networks, Google+, is growing rapidly. The network’s numbers have grown steadily since its inception.

If you’re really going to jump into the Google+ world with both feet, you’ll be needing to get your photos into imported, and chances are they’re already housed in another network or online storage system.

A new app, Google+ Photo Importer, offers a quick and easy way for iPhone users to move their photos from a selection of online services and social networks straight into Google+…

Currently only tooled to connect to Instagram, Photobucket, Flickr and Facebook, the importer isn’t laden with frivolous features that we don’t need, but rather does what it needs to do with as little fuss as possible. If you have a lot of photos to import, you can even close the app and let it continue to work in the background.

“Here’s what you get…

★ Access your Facebook, Flickr, Instagram and Photobucket photo albums.

★ Copy 100 photos in less than a minute.

★ Built on Cloud to Cloud technology: Easily import dozens of photos in seconds.

★ Does not affect bandwidth or data usage “Cloud based transfers”.

★ Select multiple or all photos in your albums – transfer with a single tap.

★ Imports your photo’s Metadata – Titles, Descriptions.

★ Save a lot of time and hassle.”

We particularly like the fact that no files are actually transfered to or from your iPhone, meaning no data usage. We’re not quite sure how ‘cloud based transfers’ work, but we’re glad they do!

Priced at $0.99 and available now, the Google+ Photo Importer is well worth the money if you’re the kind of person who’s images are strewn across the services listed. New additions are on the way as well, with Twitter and SmugMug already on the list.

Happy importing!

    Hate Google+ full stop. It’s crap. I’ve just deleted the G+ app off my phone since it was useless, and I’ll soon be doing the same with Facebook since it doesn’t work now it’s been updated…Twitter it is from now on.
