Google+ for iOS Updated with Profile Redesign and Photo Filters

Google has updated its Google+ for iOS app, adding new photo editing features like filters, rotation, and crop, alongside a new profile design that makes +1, reshare, and comment buttons easier to access.

Back in September of 2012, Google purchased Snapseed, which was created by Nik Software. The new photo editing elements that are in the Google+ update come directly from the Snapseed app, with many of the same award winning filters and simple gesture-based editing tools. Here's a full list of the enhancements:
-New photo editing features: add filters, rotate, and crop
-New profile design
-New notifications tray
-New set-up flow for new users
-Control the volume of posts that you see in your stream from individual circles/communities
-Filter search results by best or most recent
-Tell your friends about a community (by sharing it or sending an invitation)
-Re-share posts to communities
-Display counts for unread messages in your communities
-Additional community moderation features
Google+ for iOS can be downloaded for free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Not sure if people use this, I have an account but literally no friends use it. All on Facebook or Twitter.

Google+ should try to redefine how a social network is used rather than replicate and combine current social networks. That's not how you surpass market leaders.

You don't actually have to know someone to use Google+. That's what Facebook is for. I use it to follow people with the same interests as I, in this case, Photography and Jazz music. Lot's of great people to follow and discussions to partake in. Of course I'd love to have my friends on G+ so I can rid myself of FB altogether, but that's not going to happen. I love this update.

Unfortunately, only two of contacts use Google+ (and none of my friends that work for Google), and much more sparsely than Facebook or Twitter.

Oddly enough, I logged into my G+ yesterday for the first time in months. That's usually how it goes for me. Use it for a day or two, then go months without even remembering it exists.

IMO, Google+ fails only because Facebook is too well entrenched. In a way, it's sort of stupid because from my experience, it's way better. It's strange why google can't get people to use it. It's like the whole world is driving around in broken down 80's Hyundai Pony hatchbacks, and here's someone saying, "come get your free beemer--got one for your friends, too" and everyone's like... nah... everyone's driving this POS... I think I'll keep driving it too.

But then, it is a *social* network. Makes sense, I suppose. I keep trying to coax my friends and family over, but they have the same issue. Leaving FB means leaving their social network. Ah well.

Did anyone EVER really use it? Sure, we've all got an account (mainly because you dont have a choice if you use Google for your mail, docs or even just youtube now) but I dont think I know a single person that uses it in the way they do with Twitter and Facebook, and they never have done. It's just full of messages posted by automated feeds (e.g on company/website pages).

Some of you are REALLY clueless. As I have learned from this thread, if one of you doesn't use a service, no one else does either. Makes sense, total sense.

Anyways. I've been using Google Plus for awhile and find it to be a welcome departure from Facebook. Personally, I don't need or want to keep a large "social network". Personally (again) a large social network happens in real life, not in imaginary land where I can play farm owner with my pretend buddies and whatnot. Thankfully for me, there are plenty of my friends using Google Plus and it provides better sharing options for me. Much more than "bloggers and business people" on there, although several of the bloggers I happen to follow and find useful.
