It's frustrating when a mobile app can't match the features of its desktop counterpart, but Google is attempting to bridge the gap between its Google+ iPhone app and the social networking website with a little update.
The iPhone app — which can be downloaded for free through the Apple App Store — now allows you to upload full-resolution photos from your iOS device, offers a powerful search feature, and received plenty of little bug fixes and tweaks.
Of course there are still some flaws with the app — such as its tendency to crash at the worst moments for some users. But little by little, it's getting improvements.
Hopefully a future update will include an improvement which turns Google+ into a proper universal app so that we could use it on our iPads as well — without simply staring at a scaled-up version of the iPhone app.
