Google+

Image details finally will be available in the app

Be on the lookout, folks, for an update to Google+ in the near future. Google's Virgil Dobjanschi on G+ (natch) gives word that the updated v4.2.3 brings forth a few new improvements. To wit:

  • The Photos section now will work with Android Beam, so you can shoot pics to each other using NFC.
  • Also, Photos now works with Daydream (the screen-saver feature you can find in the Display settings), so when you're docked or charging the app can show off your pretty pictures.
  • Photos now shows image details. (Finally! Quit asking what camera we took that picture with!)
  • And, non-photo-wise, the Locations section will automatically refresh your friends' locations when you open it.

Good improvements, all. Look for the staggered rollout to hit you sooner or later.

Still waiting for the option to upload to an existing album using the mobile app.

Talking about photo app, do you know if there's any way to access auto backup photos through the app without having to do a search ? I would like to see my Nexus 5 photos from my Nexus 7

I'm really annoyed with the google+ update, I deleted some photos from the auto upload via the google+ app and it also deleted them from my phone's gallery. It never used to do that!

Wonder when they will add immersive mode or at least have transparent in the navigation bars and status bats with sought blur to make the screen feel bigger. Main reason I wanted kk was mainly due to the fact that finally I have the chance to have the full 7" usable for apps.
