Google+ for iOS gets a major update
Apparently Google isn’t playing favorites with Android (all the time); users of Apple’s mobile platform are getting treated to a massive makeover of the Google+ app, and the Android version is apparently still a “couple weeks” away. The update focuses on the appearance and ease of use of the app, which wasn’t particularly well received when it first landed on the iPhone.

On their official blog Google had this to say about their strategy with Google+ on mobile devices:

They did say that the Android update would include “a few extra surprises”, so fans of the little green robot can expect some extra goodies when the app does make it to Google’s own mobile OS. In the meantime, everyone can take a look at the new app below, and iOS users can head to the market link below to download/update the app.

Presumably that's why they are updating it; as an attempt to attract more users.

The interface looks much better! I hated the over-simplified (basic) interfaces they launched recently. An interface should be intuitive rather than imply you're stupid.

If you used Plus you'd know that it's actually pretty jumping.
