More Google+ Updates Coming This Weekend

More Google+ news has just hit the Stream over in + land for those that are having fun with us on the new social network.

Google+ Widget Included with Google+ App, Pretty Sweet

It's becoming quite clear that the folks who designed the user interface for Google+ are quite brilliant. One of those people was Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original designers of the first Mac, so I'd hope so. One of the lesser-realized elements in the mobile app portion of the Google+ is the widget, a rather simple and super lovely looking 1x4 widget that sits on your desktop and gives you direct access to a share screen, your camera, your gallery for sharing already taken photos, or straight up entry into the Google+ application.

Get Your Google+ Invite from AndroidCommunity!

Google just launched their new social networking plan and they are calling it Google+. With the million of Android owners and Gmail users and the rest of the population using some sort of product of Google, they seem to be in a good spot right about now. Google has already developed a great mobile application for Android and an iOS version is on the way, then the rest is done all via the web. Get your Google+ invite and start sharing thoughts or pictures with all your friends and family just like on any other platform. For now Invitations are closed and the program is in Beta, but once they start allowing invites again we'll take care of you.

Google+ Mobile App Hands-On and Review [BETA]

What we've got going here is the official Google+ app, made public yesterday along with Beta invites to the program, us here on Android Community amongst the lucky to have been granted access to the program because we just love sharing everything we know about Android with the whole community. Know what I'm saying? Therefor let's have a look: an app which opens up to a screen of five shortcuts to functionality beyond our wildest social dreams.

Viewdle SocialCamera auto-tags friends for easy Facebooking [Video]

Social networking integration is one of those elements that pushes Android ahead of the pack when it comes to smartphones, and Viewdle reckons it can make things even better with its new app, SocialCamera. A free photo app, SocialCamera allows you to instantly share images with Facebook, Twitter and other networks, using a carousel of shortcuts. It's actually the auto-tagging which is more interesting, however. After you've given SocialCamera an initial lesson as to who your friends are, subsequent shots are auto-tagged with their identity. The video below explains it more thoroughly, or you can just download and try it yourself. Viewdle SocialCamera is a free download from the Android Market. [vimeo][/vimeo] [gallery] [via TechCrunch]

Motoblur gets an update

There's a new MotoBlur UI coming to Motorola Android Phones. Some phones, like the Atrix 4G will receive the new UI through an update, while others will have it shipped on device later this year. Many of the upgraded features include enhanced photo-sharing and media syncing and location based social interaction.

HTC adding Facebook button to social networking phone?

HTC is reportedly readying a new Android smartphone with in-depth Facebook integration, expected to make its debut at MWC 2011 next Tuesday. According to the FT's sources, the unnamed smartphone will not be Facebook branded, but will instead have a dedicated Facebook button to act as a shortcut to the social network's services. The rumor follows talk yesterday of an INQ Facebook device, though HTC isn't confirming any of the speculation at this stage. Android Community will be on hand at the HTC press conference next week, so whatever Facebook-flavored loveliness is announced, you know you'll see it here. [via SlashGear]
