Google+ mobile apps updated with new features

If you are a Google+ user and have at least one page that you manage on the social network, then the search engine giant has a treat for you today. The company has just updated its Google+ app for Android and iOS, giving users the ability to manage pages right from the mobile app. You will be able to comment, post, edit comments, and more on your pages. This was one of the most asked for feature in the mobile app ever since the comapny released pages on the social network last month. Tech Crunch explains the features of the updated apps:

“For the iOS version, this mostly means catching up with the Android app. The iOS app, for example, now finally lets you edit your posts after you have published them. In addition, you can now save photos to your camera roll and the updated app now supports the iPhone5′s larger screen.
One new feature that’s specifically for iPad users is the ability to search for people and posts from inside the app (the iPhone app already offered this capability before).
The Android version didn’t get quite as many updates. It now offers a redesigned “Find People’ experience and homescreen widget. Google also says that the app now allows you to access photos from posts with just one click.”

The full announcement from the company is as follows:

New in the mobile app: support for Google+ pages

Today we’re rolling out v3.2 of the Google+ app to Android and iOS; both versions include one of our most highly-requested features: support for Google+ pages. This gives page owners the ability to post, comment, and interact with their followers directly from their mobile device.

Additionally:
– The Android version includes an updated widget, and a new ‘Find People’ experience.
– The iOS version adds iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support, and the ability to edit your posts.

The new app is available now from Google Play (http://goo.gl/xaxMx) and the App Store (http://goo.gl/RVv2S), so give it a spin and let us know what you think!
