The new G+ iPhone app is truly beautiful. How do we get google to apply this new-found aesthetic to the web site? Or other products?

- It's pretty but it makes poor use of limited screen real estate.May 14, 2012
- I'm amused at the contrast between your comments and Kee's; I'm going to have to find someone with an iPhone and actually look at this polarizing UI design...May 14, 2012
I find it completely horrifically unusuable, to the point where I've stopped using the iOS client entirely.

- Wow. Either this is a/b testing gone horribly awry, or the google iOS team is trying to get bought by facebook too :-) I finally fired it up on the iPad (and it is very much not an iPad app) and I see all of Kee's complaints vividly. A waterfall of damaged images is not a useful way to keep up with what people are doing.
If this happens to the android app, it'll get replaced with a bookmark for the second time. Also, now I want to see the app Jered was using :-)May 15, 2012
- Huh, I should use a brower bookmark in something other than safari -- safari knows me other google account, not the one i use for G+.May 15, 2012
- Oh, interesting. I didn't realize that the G+ redesign was NOT DISPLAYING TEXT and just highlighting images -- I thought it was that posts that were just images were no longer tiny thumbnails surrounded by oceans of whitespace.
I still like the new app's aesthetics. It has smooth transitions, pleasing and highlighted use of images, and good fonts. It does sound, though, like there are serious flaws in how they are choosing content. One step forward, one step back, I guess.May 16, 2012
- I find the lack of boundary between posts causes me to miss things when scrolling -- I'm neutral on the fonts, and the transitions look gimicky to me.
But really, the whole "can't see most of most post, poorly resized images" thing is what caused me to stop using the client entirely.May 16, 2012
