The sliding navigation panel on the left side of the screen houses all of your tools, and makes for a clean interface.
Visually, Google+'s home feed puts Facebook's timeline to shame. Plus, if you flip your device into landscape mode, you'll be able to swipe through feeds horizontally. It's a brilliant, simple detail that I hope to see incorporated in other apps as well.
From the mobile app, you can check out and edit your recent posts. You can also see your profile details, but can't edit them.
One of the best things about Google+ is Instant Upload, a feature that automatically uploads photos to a private album on your account as soon you take them on your Android device.
Browse through all of your albums, and click through to see your photos in a grid display. Here, you can also see the private Instant Upload album.
From the Google+ app, you can create new events with ease. You can also manage any events that you've created or been invited to.
Integrated local search
The navigation bar includes a button for local search. Tap it, and it'll bring you to the Local search tool in Google Maps.
If many of your friends use Google+, then the Messenger feature can be a lot more convenient than sending mass text messages.
Find people on Google+
This recently added feature makes it easy to find people and pages to follow on Google+.
