  • Adjust saturation, contrast, brightness and lots more by sliding your fingers up-and-down, then left-and-right
  • Single tap at any time to compare your creation with the original

  • Posts include more text up front - from the original message, and from comments
  • Tapping video, photo or link attachments takes you directly to a watch page, lightbox or website
  • Image previews are rarely cropped, so you’ll see portrait photos (for instance) in all their glory
  • Key actions like +1, reshare and comment are displayed more prominently in each post
  • You can swipe through photo albums inline

Profiles: share your current location with specific circles

You have always been able to list the places you’ve lived, but now you can display / share your current location on your Google+ profile. Or not: it’s entirely up to you.
