When I created this account I used my Google Apps account which wasn't really supported so it turned into a temporary gmail account. Now that Google+ supports Google Apps accounts I'm starting to use that one instead.
Another android app tip which I heard about on the excellent pod cast All About Android first. screen filter it's called and what it does is that it dims the screen even further than the regular screen settings allow you to do. Really nice for your eyes when using the screen in a dark environment
