Google+ For iPad Finally ArrivesBy: Josh Wolford - July 10, 2012
Hey Google+ users, I hope you’re ready to Hangout on your iPad. That’s because Google has just updated their iOS app to add support for the Apple tablet.
Having previously only offered Google+ on the iPhone, users are bound to have a richer, more immersive experience on the iPad. Google’s pretty sure of it, as they boast about some pretty fun new features that come along with the update:
The Google+ app for iPad was designed with the device in mind. Your stream styles content based on popularity, type and orientation. We’ve also added unique ways to interact with the app—lean back and try these out:
- Pinch and expand posts right in your stream to add your comments
- Use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it
- Start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay
So, along with the sure-to-be-a-hit Hangouts functionality for the iPad, Google has also added Events on Google+ to version 3.0. The Events feature lets users create and manage their event-related comments, photos, and attendees list right from the device.
