Google+ for iOS gets photo editing, filters in update

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Google on Monday rolled out an update for the iOS version of its Google+ social networking app, introducing basic photo editing and Instagram-like filters, as well as a few other additions.

plus


The new version of Google+ for iOS brings the sort of "retro" filters popularized by competing social networking apps like Instagram. Users can also rotate and crop their photos before sharing them to their Google+ accounts.

The improved photo editing options are likely an outgrowth of Google's acquisition of Snapseed, an image editing application with iterations across both PC and mobile platforms.

The update also brings a new profile design, notifications tray, and the ability to control the volume of posts displayed in a user's stream from individual circles and communities. Users can also filter search results by the most relevant or most recent and send friends invitations to communities.

Version 4.3.0 of Google+ for iOS is available as a free download in the App Store. The 28.6MB download is compatible with iPhones, iPads, and iPods running iOS 5.1 or later.

Actually, lots of my friends use Google . Maybe it only took off outside of the US, or in the engineering community?

However, what's the bloody use of making a google-Instagram-clone? There's already Instagram being Instagram right?
Or am I missing the point?

I don't have much friends on Google+, but I do use it to follow some companies and organizations that I'm interested in, so I guess I can kinda believe those numbers.

Photography is a hobby of mine, but I'll never understand why people want to alter their photos with these filters and layers. I always try to take the photo as I intend and want it to look. I crop, put the horizon back, sometimes a little vignetting, but not much else.

Another useless google service that I would not use simply because you are there product.  They have been caught so many times circumventing privacy settings  for individual users to get there advertising data base to sell you as a commodity that I would not have anything to do with the "do no evil"  Two faced company they are.
