Google+ iPad app

The Google+ app for iPad and iOS has been updated today, to Version 3.2. The list of new features in this update is not long, but it does include a couple of big user wish list items.

The ability to edit posts is the first of those and iPad users also get the ability to search for people and posts. The update also adds support for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, and allows Google+ page owners to sign in as their page and view and comment.

I have a Google+ page for iPad Insight as well as my personal account, so I’ve been giving all these new features a quick try since installing the update a short while ago.

Just as expected, there’s been a big flurry of iPad app updates for iOS 6 over the last few days. The Updates badge on my iPad was over 70 this morning.

I’m happy to see that quite a number of notable, leading iPad apps have issued updates for iOS 6 now. Here are some of those that have caught my eye on my iPad:

  • Flipboard
  • Reeder for iPad
  • Tweetbot
  • Facebook
  • iA Writer
  • Byword
  • Pocket
  • ABC News for iPad
  • BBC News
  • TED Talks app
  • River of News
  • Weather HD 2
  • Gradiance

I haven’t even had a chance to install all these updates yet, but it’s great to see them coming for these stellar iPad apps and others.

Spotify for iPad

Spotify’s iPad app has been updated today, to Version 0.5.6. This update has a single purpose:

Addresses connectivity issues

I’ve seen two issues recently with Spotify on the iPad that seem like they are connectivity related: an error each time I open the app saying something along the lines of ‘this song is not available offline (as if it is taking the app a moment to properly see the iPad’s WiFi connection); and frequent skipping and dropping out when it is streaming songs.

The error on opening has certainly gone away since I updated the app, but I’m still seeing a fair bit of skipping. Perhaps that’s an issue on my side – I’ll need to explore it more.

I’m sure we have some Spotify for iPad users here – have you been seeing any connectivity issues with the app? If so, has this update fixed them for you?
