After pharmaceutical scams and “insane demand”, Google has closed invitations for its new social media project, Google+.
The company said it had not expected the huge rush to get into the closed-invite beta this week, but was suitably impressed with the buzz it had created.
Even news that a bunch of “amateur” scammers had sent out fake invites, which redirected users to a website selling pharmaceuticals, has failed to dampen Google’s party.
But now the whole success of Google+ could rest on Apple’s decision as to whether it will allow the site to run an app on iOS.
Apple has blocked Google’s apps before – but it supports Facebook and Twitter.
The company is still enjoying a huge slice of the smartphone and tablet market, so it could prove a real stumbling block for Google if Apple declines its app.
The BBC reports that a Google employee had revealed the application via her Google+ page.
