Google+ for the iPad Unveiled at Google I/O

Google has made a lot of big announcements at its Google I/O 2012 keynote currently being held in San Francisco, California. Some of the highlights include: The new Nexus 7 tablet with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), a cool looking media streaming sphere called the Nexus Q, and the pricey Project Glass ($1,500). Google also announced that Google+ is getting a tablet makeover.

iPad Applications

The app has been optimized for Android tablets and the iPad. Google+ now features a new navigation system, Hangout video chats, and easily-tappable actions like +1 and comment. The app will also take full advantage of the new iPad's Retina display. Android users get the update today, while iPad users will have to wait a little longer.

The Google+ iPhone app has been a hot commodity since its launch this week, but what about the iPad and iPod touch?
