Inspired by +Terrence Lui's recent post, I'm curious what features or design changes people would like to see in the desktop or mobile versions of Google+.  My wishlist goes something like this:

Desktop:
Ability to drag circles up to the top bar to "pin" them there
Ability to view photos by circle (didn't we have this before?)
Ability to pin saved searches over/under the Trending section
Full chat list like Gmail has
Dedicated button either on the left or top navigation bar to go to the notifications page
Ability to preview posts from a shared circle before adding everybody in it
Incoming Stream!!!!!!

Mobile:
Ability to view/add shared circles
Ability to view the last few comments on a post like the old version had  :(
Incoming Stream!!!!!!

Other than that I think mobile is in pretty good shape, now that we can edit posts.

What would you like to see?

Nested circles.
Ability to view Circles as Venn diagrams... j/k 
 
I'd like to be able to see animated GIFs on the mobile platform.
Also like to be able to see Trending on Mobile

MOST IMPORTANT:   I want to be able to put images in Replies.
 
I want the incoming stream to come back.

And gifs. GIFS!
 
There should be more editing options in mobile for posts and I want to be able to see if someone has me circled back.

On desktop, there needs to be more streamlined visibility settings for photos. Right now, even though I have all my albums locked and sharing only to circles, people NOT in my circles are still able to view and reshare them. Not cool.
 
I'd like to put a location in the web version, not just the Android app. Location is one of the way i've got in touch with some very cool people locally.
 
You can "pin" circles by rearranging them in the circle editor. The first two circles will be the ones you see after "All" on the top bar
 
+Jannik Lindquist I have already rearranged my circles accordingly, but my first and most important circle has just one person in it and my second circle has less than thirty. If I could pin a dozen or so circles along the top navigation bar I would be much much more likely to view posts from those circles instead of just from the first two and from the stream.

I would just like to get my damn push notifications! G+ doesn't like 2.2.2 I guess...
 
Fred, I also use 2.2.2 and have to re-enable my notifications like once a week. Within G+ there are settings for what notifications to receive. Within the phones settings, go into sync, then click your Gmail address at the bottom, then check sync G+.

This currently sends me alerts anytime, but the notifications bar only shows 1. Within the app, I can access all of them.
 
Hmmm - I haven't had any problem with notifications (2.3.6 on a Razr Max...)
 
Interestingly enough - I discovered today that, while bold and italic text displays fine on the mobile app (Android), strikeout text appears completely normal, which can yield some confusing moments when reading.  So, I'd add displaying strikeout text on the mobile platform to the list. This sentence is in all strikeout for those of you on mobile
 
I'd like to see a nearby tab on the desktop version.
