Google+ iPhone App Gets a Major Overhaul, iPad App Still MIA

GooglePlus iPhone app

The Google+ iPhone app got an update this week (to another stupidly long version number) and a major overhaul to its UI. Here’s the brief change list for this latest update:

– New stream and navigation experience
– Various bugfixes and performance improvements

The app’s interface is radically different – it now has a predominantly very dark theme, a heavy emphasis on images and a much slicker feel all the way round. I tend to agree with +Robert Scoble that although the new look is quite attractive it really needs a text-mode option or similar for quicker scanning of the streams.

And of course, there’s still no sign of an iPad app for Google+, nearly a year now since it hit the App Store. At least now we have a decent alternative in iShare+ for Google+ for iPad – a proper Google+ client app for the iPad.
