Follow Friday: iMore Nation edition

Back in the day it was all about the ICQ or AIM or BlackBerry PIN swap, but it's a bold new era of mobile and there are more ways then ever to keep connected and stay in touch. If you're new to iMore or if you've been here from the beginning, now's the time to clean out your community contacts and follow, friend, and plus up each other anew.

Jared's most-used iPhone and iPad apps of 2011

Much like the other TiPb staff, my most used apps are the native applications that come pre-installed on the iPhone and iPad, but unfortunately they don't meet  all my needs. I have spent a lot of time (more than I would like to admit) in the App Store looking for applications that fit my needs, and I have found a bunch that I use on a daily basis.

Poll: Which social networks do you use regularly?

Which social networks do you use regularly?

Facebook is the most popular app on the iPhone and we've often said Twitter and iOS go together like chocolate and peanut butter. But social networks rise and fall. Remember MySpace, Jaiku, Buzz... Friendster? And hey, how about Google+ now that it's expanding beyond the techie early adopters, or LinkedIn which seems to always hover neither here nor there.

Official Google+ for iPhone hits the App Store [Update]

Google+ for iPhone, the official app of Google's new social network has just hit the App Store.

Google+ for mobile makes sharing the right things with the right people a lot simpler. Huddle lets you send super-fast messages to the people you care about most. And no matter where you are, the stream lets you stay in the loop about what your friends are sharing and where they’re checking in.

Features:

  • Circles let you share the right things with just the right people.
  • Stream is where you can get updates from your circles or see what people are saying about things nearby.
  • Huddle is super-fast group messaging for everyone in your circles.

Google+ is only available for users 13 and older.

Overall the app is clean and crisp, fully in keeping with Google's new interest in design. The login experience, however, which throws you back to the terrible Google web page, burned my eyes. Hopefully they can fix that in an update. Soon.

It's very Facebook for iPhone-like, which is good or bad depending on your stance re: consistency vs. innovation, but it works well and moves smoothly for the most part (I wish that hadn't copied some of the more crashes...). The home screen isn't full yet, with Stream (which apparently isn't iOS 5 friendly), Huddle, Photos, Profile (Lion style circled avatar -- who thought that was a good idea?), and Circles.

No iPad support yet, and strangely it doesn't support iPod touch either.

If you've tried it out, let me know what you think. And if you want to get plussy with me, you can circle me up here: https://plus.google.com/117367428086027724173/posts

UPDATE: Google+ has already been updated to version 1.0.1. Is that a record? If you got it before, go re-get it. Again. Here's the explanation: [[Google+
