Better than the rest

I’ve been using this app for a while now, and after trying all the others i recomend this one with 5 stars, but it still needs a little work. The Drop down mobile design is sleek and great to make a new post. The draw backs are when you try to post a new link the thumbnail doesnt show up on the mobile design. Also the mobile design needs a community link and some other features added to the settings. But once you open it up to the desktop design all these issues are resolved. The app is up and running before safari is from boot so you can start browsing your G+ account before you can check your mail. I love it and give my personal thanks to the developers that built this app, and i hope that this review helps all that are looking to spend two bucks on a good app.

Not as great as it should be

- The icon is the same as the Google eMail notification tool that this company wrote, so you can't, at a glance, tell which icon is which
- the "desktop" view looks like they just pull up the website in a separate window
- I don't think there are any notifications

Works Great!

This app is perfect for quickly checking updates on Google+
