Google today updated its Google+ app for iOS devices, most notably adding support for the iPad and iPod touch. The app had debuted nearly three weeks ago as an iPhone-only offering.
Unfortunately, while the app will now run on the iPad, the new version of Google+ is not yet a universal application. Consequently, it does not offer an iPad-optimized interface and is instead limited to displaying the iPhone interface at either 1x or 2x size.
What's New in Version 188.8.131.526
- Huddle settings
- Aggregated circle add notifications
- iPod touch & iPad support
- Performance and stability improvements
Google+ is Google's new social networking service that has seen relatively rapid adoption as a competitor to Facebook and other social sites.

Ironic, given Apple's icon for universal iOS apps... !
Whereas having facebook own and sell your information is a great alternative, clearly.
But the stream seems to load for me now in iOS 5! :D
I don't mind the app, except for the home screen - I don't normally mind the flat look, but that screen is just TOO dull, not helped by that horrible light-light-grey. Yuck.
I'd like to see hang-outs included though.
I don't mind the Facebook app either - what's everyone's problem with that? Admittedly I don't have much experience with it as Facebook's full of meaningless banal rubbish, as opposed to interesting nerdy stuff in Google+!
Regarding iPad compatibility - what's wrong with browser based versions on iPad (except in iOS 5 where Safari keeps crashing, obviously!)?
