Google + (or Google Plus) is an Android application to access the platform of the same name; it's a social and business network for friends and businesses alike.

Google + recently came into the limelight as more businesses and people began to use the platform over its competitors. It may not be at the same level of Facebook, but it's growing rapidly. As such, Google released this complementary app. There's no question that Google + is a great way to share pictures, information, videos, and more. But does the mobile app's performance match this excellence?

Fortunately, Google appears to have taken no shortcuts while producing this app. It loads very fast and takes advantage of Google's unique compression and caching algorithms to make an almost seamless connection. Like most modern non-gaming apps, it essentially is an alternative browser for HTML5 websites. However, this app provides a unique advantage in terms of speed and stability that no browser in conjunction with the Google + website could possibly match.

In short, Google + is a must-have for anyone who uses the platform regularly. If you use it on a phone browser, you're missing out on the experience. In addition to the speed boost, you can also upload media directly from your phone to Google Plus from the app and get only the custom alerts you want to. There's no real downside to using this app.

Pros:

  • Lightning fast and supports even poor connections
  • Allows direct media uploads from your Android's library

Cons:

  • Some argue it's just a browser that can only access Google+

• Performance enhancements and bug fixes.
