Hi Guys...we have a new update for the Google+ Android app (v.1.0.5). Check out the video overview below, and grab the update when it’s available in Android Market for you. This can take a few hours, so please be patient :)
Thanks for all of the great feedback! We’ll continue to make the Google+ for mobile experience awesome no matter what device you’re on, so be on the lookout for the next set of updates soon. Very soon ;)
Thank you for fixing rotation problem. It was really annoying. Now I'm waiting for more Nearby improvement and maybe a Nearby layer in Google Maps, like it used to be with Buzz. We do need to see posts with geotags on a map.
This is awesome! Thanks for the update +Punit Soni! By the way, I understand that iOS 5 is still in beta, but I hope you can consider making the Google+ iOS app compatible with it. Downgrading my iPhone with iOS 5 to iOS 4.3.5 to fully enjoy Google+ app isn't an easy option.
So glad for any update...but why oh why oh why oh why can't there be resharing??? I never see this addressed. Facebook app is about 3 years old and still doesn't have it. Is it really that hard technically?
+Punit Soni on the android app when you look at comments and or reshare I try to click on the names of those who make interesting posts or comments so that I can add them to a circle...however their name does not appear as a link and thus i am not able to go to their profile..work around is to look them up and then add them to a circle but that requires doing a search for their name and finding the right person.
+John Waanders That is another thing that has problems on the Android app. It was supposed to be working in this update, but it looks like it only works from some places. From others, like comments, when you try to +mention someone, it pulls the names from your phone's contacts, not from google+
Don't worry. We are patient and I think you did a wonderful job picking out the right things to work on.
Appreciate all your hard work. Sad that my prediction on your Sunday night post of Hangouts rolling out was wrong. Not so much that I need that feature but because I really wanted to have read your clues correctly.
+Punit Soni The most important feature that I want in any Android app is the ability to move it to the SD card. I know in the past Google employees have stated that they are unwilling to do this with google maps and other apps as they "are part of the core experience of Android and wouldn't work without a sd card" or whatever. But I hope you are willing to do this with G+. What is much worse than apps not working when the sd card is removed is how my Nexus One stops syncing correctly with my google account and is always running into other memory related issues, and I effectively have a limit to the number of apps I can install. Please add this feature at your earliest convenience.
Update is otherwise great and the improvements to huddles is excellent. Thank you.
I have been trying to get my Android app working since July 4th without any luck. It just keeps flashing "Signing in" over and over. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, updated, turned on wifi, turned off wifi, turned on gps, turned off gps. Nothing works.
+Punit Soni Thank you for the reply. It's a Droid 2. I just cleared the data and I get back to the option of choosing whether or not to allow an instant upload or not. Once I get past that it's back to a constant flashing of "Signing In". Os is Android 2.2
+Punit Soni Thanks for all the hard work, but please, put in a request to allow control of the font size in the android app! I just downloaded 1.0.5 and although the improvements are great, It still can be very hard to read outdoors or in active environments. Being able to select a larger font would be a boon to readability and a reduction of eye strain, specially on long posts or those with lots of comments. I've been putting this in through the feedback system steadily. Thanks!
There is a Google+ Mobile Known Issues / Feature Requests page where you can report / vote on your Mobile G+ issues + ideas. On that page (http://goo.gl/HGpnz) you'll currently find things like the ability to +1 a comment and re-share a post. Voting on feature requests and buggy issues there will actually help us prioritize what to work on next better than commenting on +Punit Soni's posts, believe it or not :) /via: https://plus.google.com/109923941665874520762/posts/hCJNkMxHpNB
Will definitely use the Mobile G+ idea suggestion page, but one last suggestion here first. You should mention that page prominently in your update posts (with a link) so that people like me go there first.
+Kiran Pal thank you very much for pointing out the Google+ Known Issues page. My issue of "Better multiple accounts support" was already listed and I voted for it. +Punit Soni you are welcome to delete my earlier comment (and this one) if you want!
ok, in huddles we can now hide old huddles, great and wondeful.. BUT.. if you create a new huddle with the same person it brings up the old huddle's content, now imagine a year from now... that is going to be a lot of old information to scroll to the bottom of. Why cant we just close them end them or delete them?
+Punit Soni There is a need to add "SHARED CIRCLES" as well. I have also posted this feedback earlier. Today if my family needs to create a circle for siblings, parents etc then there is no way for me to create a circle and share it with them so that they also have access to the same circle. Each one has to create their own circle which is essentially the same. I am thinking of a GROUP which can be done by SHARED CIRCLE so that my parents, brothers etc are saved the hassle. GROUPS in facebook == SHARED CIRCLES in google+.
