Google+ on iPhone

Earlier this evening I tried the recently released Google+ App for iPhone… And, nothing works.

It may be the fact I’m using the iOS5 Beta, but in any case I wanted a work around.

It’s an easy fix using a feature you MAY not have even used before – Throwing Bookmarks up on a Home Screen isn’t exactly something everyone needs to do; so let’s get to it.

Start by going to Google+ on your iPhone, at


Tap the Menu (Centre Icon).

Tap “Add to Home Screen”. When this comes up let it load a while. It will initially show a “preview” of Google+, but a few seconds wait will score you a sexy Google+ Icon.

Tap “Add” and you’re done!

Drag your new Google+ Shortcut where you like. .. I put mine in the Dock.
