I’ve been playing around with Google+ in the past week mainly due to the updated iPhone app, an update that is superb! Whilst Facebook and Twitter are great social networks I do think there is enough room for a 3rd social network in my online portfolio.
Tied in with the excellent way Android ties in with the google suite of tools I can only see Google+ going from strength to strength. Google+ offers some exciting features over the competition and I think I will be using it more and more, hopefully without much of an impact on Twitter or Facebook!
Regarding the Google+ iPhone App, it really is a great advertisement for how to create a social network app on a mobile device. We all know that the Facebook app on iPhone (and Android’s not much better) is a fairly basic web wrapper app that seems unstable and fairly horrid to use, google has shown the way forward, it’s got some great design and works really well. I look forward to the Android version on my Galaxy Note sometime soon I hope.
