I have been having problems with it. Every time I try to authorize the app, I get this message:


We're sorry, but something went wrong.

We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly.
 
Terrific service, just one suggestion: If G+ post is longer than 140 chars when trying to post to twitter nothing get's published, at least can Plusbounce publish a link to the post?
 
Are you aware that users (me) are getting this error when trying to sign up/connect Facebook?  When I go back and refresh, it says FB is connected, but G+ posts don't sync to FB even when I post the status update to facebook@plusbounce.com.
"We're sorry, but something went wrong.

I was not. Turns out the gmail account I was using was flagged as spam and disabled. Fixing it is a pain but I've disabled the outgoing email in the mean time.
 
I disabled the confirmation email when you add a new service. Everything else should be back to working.
 
"should be" but isn't. Have you tested it? I just can't get it to work. I type an update, share it to facebook@plusbounce.com but it never appears on FB. I have tried disconnecting and reenabling the app. Even deleted it from FB Privacy and started again. Is it going to be unreliable like this going forward? Happy to help you tested but after an hour I'm running out of steam.
 
Found another issue and fixed it. Posting should be working now. It's really unfortunate that 2 issues struck at the same time.

I can't really make guarantees as to the availability, but this is the first outage I've had that I can't blame on Heroku/EC2.
 
Thanks. The problem now seems to be that if I add facebook@plusbounce.com to one of more of my circles, then share a post with "Your circles", G+ doesn't show the "Also email 4 people not yet using Google+" option. This means I think the post never gets to your service. Any way round this without having to share individually instead of the much more convenient/automatic "Your circles" method?
 
Not that I know of.
 
What is your officially recommended method of sharing to PlusBounce? Your website seems misleading: "add the email address (e.g., twitter@plusbounce.com) as a contact to a Google Circle you'd like to publish from". Yet that doesn't work, as above.
 
That copy's been sorely neglected, though that should work if you check the check box.

Personally, I micromanage which services get which posts, so I just add the individual email addresses as I see fit.
