New Google+ App For Android & iPhone Delivers More Photo Editing & Content Sharing Options

google-plus-red-128New versions of the Google+ app for Android and iPhone are now available, with updates to photo, post, profile and community features.

Users will have access to a selection of Snapseed’s photo-enhancement options within the Google+ app, including basic editing functions and the ability to choose filters like Drama and Retrolux. Saturation, contrast, brightness and other photo effects can be adjusted as well, along with a single tap feature that lets users compare an edited image with the original.

The new version of the Google+ app for Android will include more text up front on posts and prominently displayed 1+, reshare and comment buttons. Image previews will not be cropped, and users can swipe photo albums inline. Tapping a video, photo or link attachment will take a user directly to a watch page, lightbox or website.

Profile and community features are also getting updates with the option to list a current location on your Google+ profile. Once this option is enabled, users can determine who gets to see their location status by giving permission to contacts in their Google+ network.

Upgrades to the Google+ app community features allow users to control the volume of community posts in their home stream, invite people to a community, and reshare items with a community. Member search and content moderation actions now can be performed from an iPhone or Android device, in addition to report-remove-ban support for community managers.

    Is anyone else finding the new Android app a real step-down from the last version? The stream is no longer chronological, and it repeats recent updates way too frequently. Also I’ve found that it’ll just stop for no apparent reason.

    I’m all for development and evolution but this is really hard to use…
