Google+ iOS App Update Brings Plus to iPad and iPod Touch

Google‘s Google+ iOS app latest update finally gives iPad and iPod Touch users something to smile about. Launched three weeks ago, the Google+ app only supported iPhones. The version update also adds support for the iPad, although it isn’t a full-fledged tablet optimized version.

I must commend Google for hustling support for iOS devices, delivering the iOS app just weeks after Google+ was launched to a selected audience.

The update also brings additional settings to Huddle group chat and aggregated notification for Circles.

What’s missing is Hangouts group video chat but that should come soon enough. I’m eagerly waiting for an iPad-optimised version of Google+ although the HTML5 web app currently is fully functional and very usable.

I’m currently using Google+ mobile on my Samsung Galaxy S II and I must say it looks and feels great to use. On my iPad 2, it’s fully functional and usable too.

Are you on Google+ already? What do you think about Google+ and its mobile versions?
