Google only just today announced their Google+ sign-in features that are opening up to app developers, but TuneIn Radio is one of the first out of the gate to implement it. Much as they were involved early on with Jelly Bean expandable notifications, the extremely popular radio streaming app is in on the ground floor with Google's latest features. 

To the user, it's exactly the same process as signing in via Twitter or Facebook, without the necessity of course to enter any login details. You choose which of your Google accounts you wish to sign-in with, and that's it. You're also presented with a check box allowing you to restrict who has access to content you share on Google+ -- although sharing something only you can see does seem a little, well, pointless. 

Google+ sign in isn't the only new feature in this update either. TuneIn Radio will now integrate with your calendar, so if you don't want to forget about that big soccer football game coming up, tapping the 'add to calendar' button will produce a handy reminder when the program is about to begin. Additionally, Chevrolet drivers with the MyLink functionality can now access TuneIn Radio directly from the car. Download the free version of TuneIn Radio can be found at the Play Store link above.

So, here's what I want to know. I use Tune In Radio Pro on Amazon's Kindle Fire. The Fire natively does not support Google's apps, like Google+. So what will happen to apps that are valid on Kindle Fire but which will be needing/using Google+ Sign in?

you wont get those features. your software will be way behind in version or those feature removed.

here is what i did. I tried to login but as soon as i could see the next screen I accidently clicked on something. I assume accept. then i disconnected the app from G+ app settings. when to do the same but now it auto login. stupid tunein

For some reason when I try to sign into Tunein pro now with Google+ it says an internal error has occurred. It worked the first time I did it and it works with the free version of tunein but no matter if I clear data, uninstall, disconnect from g+, or sign into the website...nothing works. I can no longer sign in with G+ on tunein pro and they are not responding to my support request...anyone have some ideas?
