Are you one of the few people left still using Google’s social networking service? If so, you’ll be happy to hear that the search giant has just released a major update to its Google+ app for iOS.

No, the update doesn’t bring about any major new features. But it does include a revamped UI, which looks a lot cleaner than the previous version, and a few other nice improvements…

From Google’s release notes:

  • Whether you post photos or articles or text, we’re making ’em look goooood
  • We’re adding crisper fonts, larger profile pics and a friendlier homescreen
  • We’re making the stream easier to scan, and easier on the eyes with overlays, gradients and other visual elements
  • Conversations fall into view as you move forward and backward in time
  • Optical cues (like parallax) help the mind linger on individual posts
  • Important actions like +1 now float atop the stream, making it easy to endorse all your favorites

All of these tweaks come together to make the app much, much more useable. Trust us, if you haven’t used it in a while, this update is worth taking a look at. If you don’t have it, you can download Google+ from the App Store for free.

Also, while you’re checking out the new design, make sure to add the iDB Google+ page to your circles. It’s kind of like following on Twitter.

What do you think of the update?

    It’s amusing to watch Google lose the app wars to Apple, lose Android to Samsung (who just bought a music streaming service today) and lose the web to Facebook while wasting time and effort on a social network no one uses.

      I don’t use it and you obviously don’t use it, but literally millions of people use it. Try

    Fixed it for you, Cody. This is google+ we are talking about, not ping.

    “one of the few people left” has such a negative spin. Did you ask everyone if they use G+ or not and then make this statement? I doubt it.

    This looks like a great update, I think it’ll make me use the app a bit more!

    looks… better? :/ anyways, maybe i will start using it again for a couple of weeks just like when it first came out

  • Looks fancy. I like it.

  • Wow! What’s with all the Google+ fans? If there are millions or billions of users, then why the hell aren’t any of them posting anything? Seriously, it’s like a ghost town. Even my fandroid friends rather post of Facebook where people might actually read their status.
