Get Into The Social With Google+ For Android

There was a time when mobile devices were used exclusively for business related activities. However, due to the massive explosion of gadget consumerism in the world, these tools have also become crucial elements of online social interaction. The need for people to share those moments with the rest of the world have fueled a revolution that started with sites like mySpace, Facebook, Flickr, Tweeter, and several others. As it is customary with big corporations like Google, whenever somethin goes mainstream like this, they want to have a piece of the proverbial pie. So, with this in mind, they just launched a closed beta for a brand new social app called Google+. XDA member iynfynitypost a thread about this earlier today. Apparently, this app can be found on the market but since it is by invite only, you will have to send an E-mail to Google asking them to consider you for the closed beta. From the brief description in the Market, the app is really a group of apps that integrate with the Cloud in order to have everything readily available, no matter where you are.

Please leave us your comments regarding this new app and your thoughts if you are one of the testers.

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. With your permission, Instant Upload automatically puts the photos and videos you take into a private album in the cloud, so you can share them anytime, from anywhere. 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.

You can find more information in the original thread.
