Google+ iPhone app updated with search, better photo uploads

The Google+ iOS app now offers built-in search.
The Google+ iOS app now offers built-in search.
Google has tweaked its Google+ app for the iPhone to add built-in search and a couple of features previously only available on the Web site.
Users of the social network can now search for specific people or posts, just as they can on the Google+ Web site. A search field appears at the top of the mobile app where you can enter your query by name or keyword.
The app can now handle full resolution photographs, so your images should retain their higher resolution after you upload them. You can also now recommend a photo to the folks in your circles by tapping on the familiar +1 button next to the image.
In addition to the above changes, Google says it also threw in some bug fixes and performance improvements, though it wasn't specific about what needed fixing or improving.
One improvement yet to surface is iPad optimization. The app continues to be designed for the smaller screen of the iPhone and iPod Touch, so iPad users will still need to run it in a small window or in the lower-resolution full-screen window.
