Is anyone on the +Google+ , +Google Drive team on the Google Photos project or can relay a message?  

The new Google Photos (mobile app) is completely borked when trying to share photos to Google+ on Android.  Sure the app is pretty, but it's not functional.  

The photos that were created by the Assistant will not even appear in G+ often time.  The photos are out of order from which they were picked.  The portrait photos appear sideways in G+, Hangouts, and Facebook.  Often, photos from Google Photos that are selected to share will show a completely different photo than the one selected.  

I'm not sure why this was an update or improvement to the Photos service.  It has gotten worse for actual usability.  I understand there's a huge perception that G+ is "dying" or is being abandoned.  Google says this isn't true, but I tell ya, there sure aren't make me confident with these latest moves.  I have had to uninstall the Google Photos so I could keep sharing photos with my family and friends on G+.  Please, you guys have got to fix this.  Don't let +Vic Gundotra 's legacy die like this. +Dave Besbris +Bradley Horowitz

Here's the example for you for random picture insertion:

Clever idea.  I think I'd rather just have direct mirroring from phone to computer [like many Android apps do] rather than switching to/from each device though.  Still, a clever idea and I wouldn't mind one if +Logitech wanted me to test one for them :)

I like this. Imagine some short usb cables in that upper tray to charge your phone/tablet while they sit there with the screen on. And I think a number pad would have been a good addition for something that would be at your desk.

I figured this was only a matter of time.  Sad for the sake of science.  Regardless, these things (rockets and ferrying astronauts to space) should be home grown and shouldn't be outsourced to Russia.  Be it from +SpaceX or actually putting money back into +NASA .  #ISS #CRIMEAaRIVER #spacex   #nasa   
In retaliation for imposing sanctions, Russia will also bar its rocket engines from launching US military satellites

+Dave Besbris​ as you are the boss of +Google+​ and an avid photographer, I'm writing to request that the Google+ team please concentrate on fixing photo uploads and album creation. Failed uploads of pictures, and especially videos, plague the album creation process. Often times the videos will say processing for eons and rarely play. This happens from Android phones, iPhones, on WiFi or on mobile networks. No rhyme or reason. Also, if the video is already auto-backedup, why would it ever have problems since it's already on your servers?

Albums are a frustration on mobile (or the Web) because as we create an album we try to tell a story with our photos, however our carefully selected order of photos is immediately disregarded by Google+ and it is put in very random order. A prime example of this is an album where we have over 1061 pictures of my daughter, chronicling her first 3 years of life with a picture a day. When we view this album, it will slip photos in random order instead of respecting the time stamps order we have selected. Much less 10 photos from a trip that we'd like to put in order despite time stamps. Facebook puts number labels on photos as you select them, ensuring the proper order. This seems like it should be an easy fix for G+. It would also be nice to be able to "title the album" of a post on mobile as its created instead of it being titled with the date and "Photos from posts".

We are avid users of Google+ to share our experiences with our families, but the really shining jewel of G+ (photos and pictures) needs some bug fixing attention. It makes it hard to attract new users if 50% of their photos fail to upload. I've submitted tons of feedback when I encounter any issues but these things have been going on nearly from the beginning with little fix. It's been a long time since we've had substantial G+ improvements (except "stickers" for some reason), so I'm hoping all this is in the works.

(Oh, and while I'm requesting things, please add the ability to attach pictures/gifs to comments and a proper hamburger menu on the left)

I know that this post is probably not being monitored by anyone that cares, but +Dave Besbris you've got to talk to someone about this new Google Photos thing because it works worse with posting to Google+.  Now it's exaggerated the issues that I put up above.  Not only can we not select the order of photos, we don't even get the option on desktop to organize the photos.  The photos app now posts pictures to other media sites that are sideways and even upside down.  As my wife says, "how can they possibly keep making everything worse".  I've got to agree in this case.  So many people love G+ in the public like us, why not developers at Google?

I had 3 shirts tailored by Sashka. They were "Dri-fit" material polo shirts that needed to be shortened and tapered. The seams and stitches looked like they were factory hems when she was done. Sashka did an excellent job and very quickly. Two of my shirts were done same day, in fact. She was also less expensive than others in Madison for these repairs. I would absolutely recommend Sashka. She also uses Square payment so she accepts all forms of payment! (very, very convenient) Her shop is in an office building, 2nd story, and is easiest to get to by driving to the back of the building.

The guacamole made fresh at the table is worth a trip here. Salsa was also good. Food was Mexican and delicious. Free parking in the garage directly behind the restaurant and you can enter through the alley. Very convenient.

I'm not sure what more one could ask for as a water front restaurant? Outstanding atmosphere, right on the water. Smells can be a little funky as its an active fishing harbor. Restaurant is walk up order (cash only) and find your own seat at picnic tables on their dock. Food comes out in boxes and is excellent. There are pelicans, egrets and gulls all just chilling there. The food is not expensive, but the line can get long on the weekends. We went on a week night. Highly recommend.

I'd definitely go back to this place. The lump crab cakes were pretty good. Beer selection is meh. Views of the Tampa Bay bridge was excellent.

They claim the #1 burger on the island and they're not joking. Burger was excellent, fries were reasonable. Cash only place but there's an ATM on site (2.95 fee). The beer selection was the best that we saw down there. Cigar city Brewing on tap, prices were actually reasonable. Highly recommend.
