Google+ App Inverted, Socialize with a Black Color Theme

So far I'm loving Google+ as I'm sure many others are, but I'd prefer the Android app to be in black to go along with the rest of Android. Lucky for you guys those amazing developers over at XDA have themed Google+ and the entire application is now black instead of bright white. Every time G+ gets an update they are quick to theme the new version and post it up so I figured I'd share the newest one with everyone.

Android Community Weekly : July 16, 2011

It’s the middle of July and tech news this week has been rock steady! Lets start off by saying that Google+ is now available for international users; and at this point it seems that all Google+ is missing compared to other social platforms is a wider userbase. In other Google news, their new project “Google Offers (Beta)” launched in NYC Tuesday. Think of this service as a way to save money with many different local businesses on a daily basis. This past Monday evening, HTC released information that the bootloaders of some of their more recent devices will be unlocked in the coming months of August and September. Some of their devices have already been unlocked over at XDA Developers, but I’m sure many have been awaiting an official fix.

Google + Android App Update Available, Customize Your Stream and more

Google has been running wild over the past few days and week with Google + and today they just updated the Android app. The update is in the market now so head over and get it. They have added a few new features as well as fixed some bugs and issues with the swype keyboard some were reporting. The update is rolling out now but only a few of my devices are seeing it so keep checking the market.

Google+ APK Available for International Users

The rest of the world may be keeping the Samsung Galaxy S II from us here in the states, but to show we're not bitter the Google+ app is now available to download internationally. If you have a Google+ account, but don't live in the United States, the Google+ account hasn't been available on the Android Market yet. There is always the mobile web site, but this app is great, and makes following, say your favorite Android Community, that much easier. Google's given no word on why they haven't released the Google+ Android app internationally, but testers have confirmed installing the APK has worked just fine. Of course, you do have to have a Google+ account for it to do you much good. If you don't have one quite yet, hang in there, invites seem to be turning on more frequently the past few days. The app gives you some pretty cool features, not the least of which is instant notifications and the ability to view posts directly from the app. You also get access to huddles, an awesome multi-user chat tool and the ability to instantly upload pictures and videos you take to Google+. You can grab the app here or at the original thread at XDA. Happy +'ing! [via XDA]

Google+ Android App Has Support for NFC

Google has a tendency to use their different technologies and services to promote one another, and it sure looks like Google+ will be no exception. It turns out that phones with NFC, a small list at the moment, are capable of reading NFC tags with the Google+ app, to allow for quicker sharing. Obviously this won't be any sort of killer feature until NFC spreads a bit, especially to other phones.

Android Community Now on Google+ and It’s a G+ Party!
