Although this doesn’t comes as a great surprise, considering that Android too is a Google product only, the Google+ application for Android is very smart. Apart from some inevitable flaws, the mobile app is intuitive and very well designed. In fact if you weren’t told specifically, you could easily mistake it to be meant specifically for mobile phones.
When you open this application, you will view a home screen consisting of the major elements: Circles, Photos, Stream, Huddle and Profile. Evidently missing is the video conferencing feature – Hangouts that Google plans to add soon.
Tapping on any of the icons will take you to the inner screens that perfectly fit in all the elements of Google+ without making the whole appearance look cluttered. Navigation is not difficult either. Tap on a circle and you will receive a list of your circles. Thereafter, tapping of any circle fetches a list of people who comprise that circle. At this point, you can filter the photos or posts you wish to see.
One feature that is missing from the web version, but is present in the Android app is the location awareness. As a user, you have the liberty to filter the posts depending on your location. This feature has already shown its usability by proving helpful for a Google+ user who was looking for a bicycle pump for a specific kind of wheel. He was successfully able to locate one with the help of the app and was also able to find some local places for learning about rock climbing.
