Google+ for iOS updated with Auto Enhance, Google Offers, more


Google has released an update to its Google+ app that sees a number of new features. Most significantly, the update offers several automatic photo-editing tools. Now users can simply tap an Auto Enhance button to automatically touch up their photos in the app. Another button called Auto Highlight allows the app to select the best photo out of a series of photos. The featured called Auto Awesome takes multiple photos and combines them into one, while Auto Backup allows you to automatically upload any photos you've taken to Google+.
