Back in May, Google launched Google+ Collections, which lets users create collections of content around any given topic, just as they could create a board on Pinterest or a magazine on Flipboard. Collections basically look like any other Google+ page, but centered around the theme the user has chosen.

Until now, the feature has only been available for Android and the web, but on Monday,Google announced that it's now available on iOS.


In a Google+ post, Google's John Kilcline writes:

Google+ users on Android and the web are using Collections to connect with others around shared interests ranging from Homebrewing, Climbing Junkie Photos to Magical, Mystical Mountains and Marine Life Today, we’re excited to announce Collections on iOS.
Create a Collection about something you’re interested in; make as many as you’d like;  and don’t worry about over sharing since people can follow just the Collections they like.
Google+ users who have already created Collections asked us for the ability to customize who can see their Collections and if they could add taglines to describe them. We recently announced these features on Android and the web; today they are also available on iOS. To better explore the wide range of Collections already created, we announced last week that you can search for Collections on Google+ on Android as well.

When Collections first launched, we took a deeper dive into how the feature works, which you can check out here.
