Apple Updates iTunes

Apple has updated iTunes, and word on the street is, update now!!!

Here are the details:

Introducing the new iTunes. With a dramatically simplified player, a completely redesigned Store, and iCloud features you’ll love—this is the best iTunes yet.

• Completely Redesigned. iTunes makes it more fun to explore and enjoy your music, movies, and TV shows. You’ll love the beautiful edge-to-edge design, custom designs for each album, movie, or TV show in your library, and getting personal recommendations any time you click In the Store.

• A New Store. The iTunes Store has been completely redesigned and now features a clean look that makes it simpler than ever to see what’s hot and discover new favorites.

• Play purchases from iCloud. Your music, movie, and TV show purchases in iCloud now appear inside your library. Just sign-in with your Apple ID to see them. Double-click to play them directly from iCloud or download a copy you can sync to a device or play while offline.

• Up Next. It’s now simple to see which songs are playing next, all from a single place. Just click the Up Next icon in the center display and they’ll instantly appear. You can even reorder, add, or skip songs whenever you like.

• New MiniPlayer. You can now do a whole lot more with a lot less space. In addition to showing what’s playing, MiniPlayer now includes album art, adds Up Next, and makes it easy to search for something new to play—all from a smaller and more elegant design.

• Improved search. It’s never been easier to find what you’re looking for in iTunes. Just type in the search field and you’ll instantly see results from across your entire library. Select any result and iTunes takes you right to it.

• Playback syncing. iCloud now remembers your place in a movie or TV show for you. Whenever you play the same movie or episode from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV, it will continue right where you left off.

Google+ Updated for the iPhone

Google have released an important update to their Google+ app for iPhone as well as releasing the full iPad supported version.

The update includes essential social features:

  • Google+ Events
  • Attach instant upload photos to posts
  • Start and join hangouts

This was a much needed update to bring iPhone users in line with those on Android. Hopefully this will continue to encourage the use of Google+ as it was frustrating not being able to get fully involved with the community. Let’s hope this update wasn’t just that little bit too late.

We love the new Google+ Layout

That’s right, we’re going to say it, we love the new Google+ layout.  A lot of people do not, but it’s something about the modular feel that have made things look and fit better along with also making it feel more like an application.

We are still playing around and will supply to you a little later down the line the best posts explaining a lot more about Google+’s new look.  For now, check out the video below.
