Not really a "standalone app"; it's an update to the app that was already there!
 
On Android? Download this: 
Google has just launched its own Camera app in the Play Store. Simply called Google Camera, the app looks a bit different from the camera software currently shipping in Android 4.4 KitKat. Google...

Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

Not just me, then! I've stopped trying to tidy up my photos into albums etc because I have no idea what's what anymore :(
 
Is it just me or can anyone else not get their heads around how photos work in the recent G+ Photos app.

I thought Google had it perfect before and was going to replace the built in Gallery app but obviously not.

Now I can't tell what's backed up and what isn't, what's local and what's online. It was so simple before and now I'm always going back to the old gallery app.

I made some tweaks to my blog layout; it was starting to look a bit dated. (It still looks a bit bland, but I'm a programmer; that's what we do ;-))

Let me know if it looks wonky for you (and what device/browser you're using). Chrome for Android randomly renders invisible text and the line height much lower than on desktop; but I can't seem to fix either; might be bugs? :-/

Google+ auto-backup and photos are so stupid now...

1. Take photos
2. Wait some time while they upload
3. Open Photos app and delete the photos
4. Press Refresh
5. Watch as photos reappear

How is this not weird and confusing?

+Google+ Help My suggestion would be for some way to see whether a photo is local/remote/both, and when deleting, ask if I want to delete from mlocal/remote/both. Looks like a bug if you delete a photo then it just comes back seconds later!

Dear Internet,

Stop assuming that everyone is in the USA. This means when you write articles like 'Google Glass is available to everyone today!' - its not, its only available to the USA.
When you  do things like 'Its Pi Day!' or  'its Palindrome week!' - again, its not, its only in the USA where the date format is backwards.

When you have a hangout, meeting, or request work online. When somebody asks your time zone, please be specific  - 'east coast' is not a timezone, neither is 'Pacific' (I live in the pacific!)
Even saying 'CST' can be anything from -6 to +8 hours since there are multiple time zones using that abbreviation (http://www.timeanddate.com/library/abbreviations/timezones/ )

Yours Sincerely
Annoyed and needing coffee

So misleading! This article has been updated to disprove the title, but the title not updated. It has been proven that keys were obtainable, and this is exactly as dangerous as was suspected! +The Verge
 
Heartbleed may be less dangerous than we thought
After this week's massive Heartbleed bug, one of the biggest concerns was that the bug might leak a website's private SSL keys, the key to the green lock that secures data sent to users. It's...
