Good question!
 
I have added many descriptive tags on my serval thousand images from Picasa 3.9 windows app and later synced them with +Google+ Photos

Now when I search for tags only random 100 images turn up in results.

How can I search for more from my +Android +Google+ app?

By FAR, my favorite feature of Picasa is the ability to rapidly and intuitively search my pictures. I have tagged my 40,000+ collection extensively.   I have tried several other photo organizers and all have fallen far below the Picasa standard.  Picasa lets me search on mulitple tags all at once in a single search window.  It rapidly finds the pictures.  No other program I've tried can do that.

Tag your photos!  Spend 15 minutes tagging when you empty your SD card and then forever have the ability to find the subjects you want, quickly.

I really like Google's Maps program on my Android phone.  The search feature works really well when you want to find a business nearby, even if you don't know what it might be named.  Navigation works very well, but it lacks a feature I would really like to see added.  

If I create a route on my computer using Google Maps, I can share that map to my Android phone with the push of a button.  I can then view that map, too.  That's pretty nice.  I'd really like it if I could then use that map to navigate.  If you try this, only the end point is considered and the phone brings up a new route that disregards the one created in advance and shared with the phone.

Let's say I want to drive from DC to Boston but I want to use the Tappan Zee Bridge instead of the more direct GW Bridge.  I can plot that route on my computer and even share that route to my phone, but I can't use that route to navigate.  If I try, I am re-routed to the GW Bridge.

I have searched Google Forums and see that other people have been seeking or asking for this feature for over two years.  I would love it if Google would announce that this feature is coming!

I am still waiting for the ability to create a route on a map and then to use that map with the navigation feature on my phone.  3-D?  I don't need or want it on my phone.  I want to plan a route and then have my phone guide me.  As it is now, I can create a driving route from Baltimore through Philadelphia to NYC.  I can then email that map to my phone.  But when my phone opens the map to navigate, it 'recalculates' and charts a path that does not go through Philly because it can get me to NYC faster another way. 

Will Google Maps ever let me add waypoints to a route?

I had to ditch Unity 2-D and I'm much happier now with KDE.

I removed it from my phone- the latest update wanted even more control of the device. I don't seem to miss it, and I can still use it on my desktop if I am at home.
 
I can believe Facebook will decline. In fact, I think it already is. But 80%? In three years!!? Nah.

I can search by tags with the desktop Picasa, but I can't find a way to do it using web Picasa, Google+ or Google Drive, which makes these services far less valuable to me than they would be otherwise.  Is there a way to see my tags in any of these services that I haven't discovered?  Are there plans to include tags in the search function of web-based Picasa, Drive or Google+ ?  (I am not talking about searching by captions or folder names.)
