Google+ iPad App Now Available for Download

by on July 10th, 2012

During Google I/O 2012, Google announced they planned to release an updated version of Google+ for the iPad. Well, that day has arrived according to an announcement on Google’s blog:

In May, we redesigned the Google+ experience for iPhone, adding full bleed photos that fall into place and bold visual elements that bring your stream to life. Today, we’re introducing new features for iPhone and an iPad app that you won’t be able to put down.

Here are some iPad features and gestures:

  • Pinch and expand posts right in your stream to add your comments
  • Use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it
  • Start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay

Essentially, you get all the goodies from the iPhone app but now it’s available for the iPad. Here’s what’s new in the 3.0 update:

What’s New in Version 3.0

✓ Full iPad support
✓ New feature: Google+ Events
✓ Attach Instant Upload photos to posts
✓ Start and join hangouts

To be honest I barely use Google+. It’s like that shiny new toy you abandon in the closet after a couple days of playing with it. There are just too many social networks to keep up with now (mind–blown).

    I have been waiting for this for a while. I like it much better than Facebook

    Terrible update. I am moving back to using the iPhone version. Why?
    1) graphic layout is weak. Previous version was better
    2) posts are not chronologically ordered!

    I love checking up on friends and family but having to swipe back and forth to find the newest post is bad.
