Google+ App Submitted For Approval On The App Store, Says Google+ Team Member

According to Erica Joy, a Google employee and very well possibly a Google+ team member has stated that the Google+ app for iOS has been submitted for approval some time ago. Since it only is a social networking app, you can be pretty sure we won’t have another Google/Apple scandal when it comes to apps (read: the Google Voice app saga), but you never know with Apple’s app approval policies. In the meantime, did I mention I’m enjoying Google+ on Android? Android users have had an app ever since the service launched.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Software Update Coming Soon, Bringing Touchwiz Along

Ready for some software “enhancements” from Samsung? I thought so (or not), because Touchwiz, a new app drawer, Samsung Media Hub, Swype, several new widgets and unlocks are headed to the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 soon. Once updated however, there isn’t a stock way to go back. However, there will be an iPad 2-esque remote wipe and tracking function. Check out all the details on the upcoming update, at the source link. Via: Samsung

Well, if you’re waiting for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion later this month when it launches on the Mac App Store for $29, then you’ll be happy to know that some of your favorite applications will probably be taking advantage of the new OS X by the time it launches.

Now Anyone Can Join Google+ By Using Their Google Account

That’s all folks. Google+ is now open to anyone and everyone with a Google account, as according to the Google+ homepage. Yours truly is on Google+, so you can add me to a circle here. Since the service is highly successful within its first week of availability, I do have to say I’m putting positive bets on Google+ and that already it will be one of the major new social networks of the new digital social age. Oh, and it’s awesome. Via: Google+

Skype for Android now has video calling on select devices

Since Skype is on a roll recently with their acquisition from Microsoft, the announcement of an upcoming iPad app, and now a completely redesigned Android app that supports video calling on devices that use Android 2.3 and above, specifically on the following devices: HTC Desire S, the Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, the Sony Ericsson Xperia pro, and the Google Nexus S. According to Skype, more handsets will be added in the close future. More new features for the app include a new main menu, easier contacts integration and access, a “mood box” much like the desktop client, and of course bug fixes. It is available for free on the Market.
