Frustrated with IFTTT, any help appreciated
I absolutely love the idea of automated tasks, but the only If This Then That recipe that I can see being useful would be automatically saving new Evernote notes to Drive and, conversely, things sent to Drive automatically sent to Drive.  Both are channels, but Evernote only seems to trigger when notes are "shared" (which I don't do) and Drive is not even an option in the "This" part of the equation.  Are these just not possible?
Your Internet life is complicated - let IFTTT automate it for you It's been a good while coming, but IFTTT (If This Then That) is launching its official Android app today. Arriving several months after the app's launch on iOS, IFTTT is launching a well-designed and useful app on Android that aims to help automate your Internet life. If you haven't dove into the vast world of IFTTT it...

This is huge for those of us who use auto-backup photos in G+.  Instantly add and resize photos to Gmail from your G+ photos.

I am impressed with what they are teaching in high school right now.  My son, a freshman, created this in his first year computer graphics class.

+Joe Phelps Yes, it is somewhat amusing. It is not a common name, so what are the odds!

Yes, please. If this is the direction the album is taking I will be very happy.

I just ordered one of these for my daughter going off to college this summer. Paired with a new tablet, she should be covered.

The idea of not having to play Windows tech person from afar definitely appeals to me.  I will need to find out what her printing requirements will be. I know that they have computer lab with printers and she may be able to just log into chrome and print on those. I'm trying to avoid having to get a bulky printer for a very small space.

The new Google Camera app is very nice, and the blur effect works great most of the time. Here, you can see that the foreground corner and the top got blurred as well. Any thoughts about how to avoid this?

loads have complained about it but I think it's a huge improvement on what we've had.  I'm actually taking photos again now where I haven't really taken many for months

Great track, and an amazing, creative video to go with it. I love the way the distorted guitar is matched with a more viscous paint - it really looks like distorted guitar! I can't stop playing this. Why aren't there more rock instrumentals?

Here is a Google+ feature I would like (cc +Vic Gundotra ):
The ability to mark a You Tube video to Watch Later from within Google+. As it is, I have to watch the movie now in G+ or click through to You Tube (at which point it starts playing) just to mark it for later viewing.

+Vance McAlister Yea, guess you're right, I would also suggest tagging some YouTube developers also as they are probably less well known and will be more likely to see your post

I hope this feature does get added at some part as im always coming across a video in my Google+ feed which I would rather want adding to my watch later feed (especially long videos like documentaries, etc)

For now maybe consider using the Social section of YouTube, that should show all the videos which have been shared on Google+
