As with any new and exciting app or technology I was very excited when I was invited to Google+ and when I found out there was an app I couldn’t wait to try it out.
This app is amazing! It’s fluid and intuitive, which is a lot like Google+ as a whole. I was impressed that as soon as the Google+ beta launched and was available to sign up this app was in the market. No waiting and no hassle.
After I installed this app I noticed two new icons – Google+ and Huddle. The first icon is a portal into the main app:
Stream – This is your news feed for the different streams that you have. Your circles, people physically close to you (this uses GPS if you have it) and incoming (people not in your circles but that have you in their circles).
Huddle – This feature is offered exclusively on the Android devices for now. It’s very similar to your phones messaging app. Unfortunately it doesn’t integrate with Google Talk (yet?)
Photos – These are obviously your pictures. However Google+ brings with it a neat feature called Instant Upload. This does exactly what you think it would – instantly upload any picture you take with your phone to your Google+ account. You’ll still have to share it if you want other people to share it but you can do that from your phone or your computer.
Profile – This is obviously your profile.
Circles – This will show you all the different circles you have and allow you to add, move and delete users and circles.
All in all this app and service is still in beta but I think there is huge promise for the future things it will bring and I for one cannot wait!
