Google+ may not be the liveliest social network in the world by any stretch, but it sure is one of the best in terms of looks. Google has made a lot of good use of white spaces and a card like interface, and that approach has percolated into its design for apps on mobile platforms such as iOS and Android. Now, Google has launched a fairly major update to its Google+ app for the iPad, and there are a lot of new features added into it that make this an update to look out for.
Snapseed was one of the most popular photo editing apps in the App Store for quite some time. Until, of course, the team behind it got taken over by Google. The search giant made it free to begin with, and now the Google+ app has also started seeing some after effects of the Snapseed takeover. Now, the popular photo editor is built right in to the iOS app for Google+, making it an absolute breeze to upload suitably touched up photos to Google+ with little fuss.
The notifications tray and profile design has seen a fair makeover as well. Image previews don’t seem to be cropped anymore, letting you look at photos in their full fledged glory, just like the web version of it does. Community owners get some love as well, as there are new display counts of unread messages in them, along with moderation having been made a lot easier than before.
You can get the new Google+ update from the App Store here.
