Google+ iPhone AppIt was hard to miss the news that Google announced yesterday around Google+.

If you did and you really don't have time to sift through everything, Google's Aygul Zagidullina captured notes in very short bullet point format that makes it quick and easy to consume.

So for those that missed it, here are her notes:
