Share and keep up with people no matter where you are with the Google+ app. Join a hangout, post a photo, or see what friends are sharing while you’re on the go. Use Messenger to get everyone on the same page with fast, simple group chat.

Features:

  1. Turn on Instant Upload to sync photos from your phone to a private Google+ album
  2. Video chat with up to 9 friends with mobile Hangouts in Messenger
  3. Chat with a friend or all your friends at once with Messenger
  4. Check out the What’s Hot stream to see trending topics
  5. View the Nearby stream to see what people near your location are saying

Pros

  1. Beautiful & elegant design to display the images of each post on the iPhone/iPod Touch!
  2. Super responsive & almost instant display of updates & comments!
  3. Messenger built within the app with video chat (hangout)!
  4. Instant upload of new photographs to private album in google+
  5. Notification settings to filter some annoying notification that spam you constantly haha
  6. Shake to feedback to google+
  7. Can upload more than 1 photograph in a single post
  8. When you press the “+” symbol you can put your friend name to that post so he/she will be notified

Cons

  1. Google+ iOS app is for the iPhone & iPod touch only, I hope the developer can make a iPad version or Universal version that can be view on landscape on the iPad in full retina display maybe with dual panels.
  2. The instant upload may accidentally use up some of your 3G data plan if you set to “WIFI or Mobile Network” so make sure you select carefully.
  3. I haven’t try deleting a photo from instant upload but one of the reviews says it can’t be deleted. I successfully delete a uploaded photograph thou 😀

Overall, this app is so much better than the previous version that whoever created this app deserve a pat on their back and probably a raise!

The previous Google+ is slow in response & hard to navigate and the new update is so much faster.

I wish facebook developers are watching this as the current facebook iOS app is like slow in updating messages & updates that frustrate me often haha.
