• Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on (video)

    The Galaxy Nexus (formerly referred to as the Nexus Prime) carries on the Nexus torch in spectacular fashion, and we've just spent a few quality moments with one here at the launch event. Design-wise, it's clear that the Nexus S DNA is here, though the rear reminds us most of the Galaxy S II. Those who abhor physical buttons will also be delighted, and while we'd gotten used to the whole Power + Home for a screenshot on the GSII, Power + Volume Down works just fine on this fellow.......

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now official, tons of enhancements

    PSHax member - Google has taken the stage in Hong Kong to make the next version of Android OS, nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich, a thing of reality. Better known as Android 4.0, the update offers a massive redesign to the user interface and adds a plethora of new features. Some of the highlights include an NFC-enabled feature called Android Beam, offline search in Gmail, new lock screen features and a fancy unlocking method called "Face Unlock," which uses facial recognition to ensure strangers can't use your phone without permission. Ice Cream Sandwich also includes enhancements in.....

  • Motorola RAZR to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012

    Mutricy mentioned that while the company's new flagship device was designed for Gingerbread, plans have been set to introduce the latest version of Android in the start of 2012, with a more precise date naturally on its way. Given past experience, however, it's probable that the unbranded version of the device will get the refresh ahead of the Droid RAZR on Verizon, so US users may need to exercise a wee bit of patience here. Regardless, it's time for the competition to step up......

  • HTC Rezound render resoundingly revealed- wait next November 10th

    Hark! The first renders of the HTC Rezound have appeared online, thanks to some of the device's cases going up for pre-order. You can see that, like the Sensation XE, the phone has red-glowing soft keys -- a bit of a departure from HTC's traditionally conservative design language. If you recall, the phone formerly called Vigor is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Beats Audio and an 8MP rear camera.....

Apple Finally Approves Google+ Application For iPhone

Posted by Mohd Khairun Nasir Saadi On - - 0 comments

Apple today approved the Google+ app for the iPhone, and posted it to the App Store.

As of noon ET, only an iPhone version of Google+ was available. It's unclear whether Google has created an iPad-specific app.

Google+, the social network that launched earlier this month but still remains in field trials, already boasts 10 million users, Google CEO Larry Page said last week during the company's quarterly earnings call with Wall Street analysts.

The app may not be available to everyone immediately, said Vic Gundotra, who heads Google's social division.

"iPhone, meet Google+," said Gundotra as he announced the new software on his Google+ account. "This app should be rolling out over the next few hours."

Computerworld was able to download and install the Google+ app for the iPhone from this App Store page. As of 2 p.m. ET, however, the app was still not available via an App Store search.

Two weeks ago, a Google employee said that the company had submitted Google+ to the App Store. "The Google+ iPhone app has been submitted to the App Store (no not today, sometime prior to today) and is awaiting approval," said Erica Joy on July 4.

According to that timeline, Google's app took twice as long as the vast bulk of submitted apps to win Apple's approval.

Apple rarely talks about the approval process for its iOS download store, but at the Worldwide Developer Conference in June 2010, CEO Steve Jobs said, "Ninety-five percent of all the apps we get submitted are approved within seven days."

The App Store description of Google+ said that the app runs on the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, and requires iOS 3.1 or later.

Hey, Apple: Where's the Google Plus iPhone app already?

However, iPhone apps can run on the iPad in an emulation mode that simply doubles the size of the former's display on the tablet's screen.
