At the LeWeb conference in London a little bit of information was dropped by Bradley Horowitz. He is Google’s vice president of product management. He announced that G+ access would soon be integrated into Flipboard. Giving users and lovers of the app a sprinkling of G+ in their streams on the popular application.
This is pretty great news really. It means that for the first time, to our knowledge, Google will be releasing the API’s needed to a developer to make it happen. On the flip side though, they aren’t releasing the API’s publicly for other developers to utilize and integrate Google+. The primary reason for continuing to hold onto the API’s is purely for consumer protection and user experience.
Why isn’t this API open to all developers? Because Google doesn’t yet have good noise controls and is wanting to make sure they build their social garden stage-by-stage and not be forced later to piss off developers because they need to change their API to protect the user experience here.
Until Google gets around to perfecting what ever it is they are trying to do, you will have to use the official G+ app from Google or Flipboard to see whats happening in your social circles.
