Google+ Stream

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 1.0.2.1966 update also adds support for the iPad, although it isn’t a full-fledged tablet optimized version.

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