After fully redesigning the iPhone version of its Google+ app, Google finally pulled the trigger on the iPad version. Bradley Horowitz, Google's Vice President of Product, took the company's blog today to announce the new app that he claims users "won't be able to put down." 

The new iPad app, along with the new version of the Google+ iPhone app, will allow users to start a Hangout (video chat) from anywhere with up to nine friends. Additionally, the iPad app has been rebuilt for use on a tablet. To do so, Google added news way to interact with the app: 

  • Pinch and expand posts right in your stream to add your comments
  • Use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it
  • Start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay
You can download Google+ for iPad from the Apple App Store now.
