Google plus is the new social networking website which is gaining so much hype and popularity. The best part of Google+ is its easy and friendly UI in organizing your friends into circles. In this post we will guide you through various ways of accessing Google plus from your smartphone [also read: Access Google plus from your Desktop].
Considering the Android, it’s the Google’s own Mobile OS. The Google+ app for Android is available right from the beginning of the Google+ launch. This app comes with functionalities like
- Sharing G+ status with Geo location.
- Accepting friend circle requests.
- Replying to comments.
- Adding pictures from camera/gallery.
- Huddle Group chat.
This app supports all android versions starting from Android 2.1. The app can be downloaded from the link here: Google+ for Android.
Note: If you have the android smartphone with Android version lesser than 2.1, you can get access to the web-version of the Google+ but you will be missing the photo sharing and huddle features.
The web-version is the HTML 5 with rich UI where you can
- Share the status with Geo location.
- Reply to comments.
- Add friends to your Circle.
- check-in at locations.
The web version also comes with Notifications icon where the new notifications are shown.
Google+ app for iPhone
This app is released just before. And it comes same functionality as Android version but it’s not that eye candy as Android version. This app is buggy compared to Android version. We encountered random crashes too. The best part of this app is it supports Huddle messaging. This app is incompatible with iOS 5 Beta and iPad, iPod.
You can download this app from the link here —> Google+ for iPhone.
For Symbian and other Java Phones :
There is no dedicated app for Symbian/Java phones. So you are to stuck with browser version. For Symbian users, the new Symbian Anna browser support the HTML 5 version which is same as the iPhone browser version. The Google+ version also has a basic mobile version which is usable in all Java phones. This version doesn’t support image uploads or huddle. Image [via Google]
