Google+ for iOS gets iPad, iPod touch and iOS 5 support

Google released a relatively small update to its Google+ app for iOS on Monday. It doesn’t introduce any extraordinary new features, but does add compatibility with the iPad and iPod touch, and the pre-release version of iOS 5. There are also some additions to the Huddle feature.

Before the latest update (the latest version is now, the app wouldn’t even install on an iPad or iPod touch. However, while this version still isn’t Universal, so while iPad users will have to use pixel-doubling compatibility mode, it will install on all iOS devices running iOS 4 or later. The app is also much more stable, including on the developer preview of iOS 5, and removes a few bugs (like the inability to view Streams or Profiles) which cropped up in the previous version.

There are also some additional features in the Huddle section of the app. You can now hide or mute specific Huddles, so you won’t be notified of new messages in the conversation. Also added was the ability to rename a Huddle to make it easier to distinguish between conversations. Lastly, you can also decline an invitation to a Huddle from your device, and leave a Huddle you are participating in.

Apps Search Engine :

Quixey, the nascent search engine for web and mobile applications backed by Eric Schmidt, is expanding its scope to include third-party Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Foursquare apps.

Now you can query Quixey with functional search terms describing what you want to do — “play word games,” “share my travels” or “list books I’ve read,” for instance. Quixey will then discover and unearth applications from across four of the top social application platforms.

“The functionality of social is limited to photos and status without easy access to apps,” says marketing director Julia Lipton. “App search opens a new world of functionality.”

Quixey snatches up information from forums, blogs, social media sites and additional sources to return and rank high-quality results for user queries.

Facebook has the largest repository of applications — more than 1 million by Quixey’s count. The startup believes that Facebook members aren’t using many of these applications simply because they aren’t aware they exist.

Quixey hopes to deliver a superior application discovery experience than offered by Facebook; the same holds true for Twitter, LinkedIn and Foursquare
