You may love Google+ on your iPhone but it gets even better. Today, Google has released an update to its Google+ for iPhone app by adding a much crisper user-interface that makes the app more enjoyable to use. Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President of Google said that the company is embracing the sensor-rich smartphone and is transforming Google+ into something more intimate and more expressive. “Today’s new iPhone app is an important step in this direction—toward a simpler, more beautiful Google,” Gundotra said. Google is adding crisper fonts, a friendlier homescreen and larger profile pictures.
The update makes the stream easier to scan and easier on the eyes with overlays, gradients and other visual elements. It promises better looking photos, articles and text too. Performance-wise, the updated Google+ for iPhone app has your conversations fall into view as you move forward and backward in time. It also features optical cues that help the mind linger on individual posts and important actions like +1 that now floats atop the stream, thus, making it easy to endorse all your favorites. Google hopes that the end result will bring iPhone users closer to the people and things that its users care about. The said update is now available in the App Store.
