I was going to through this into the Android Overload but seeing how Google+ is such a hot topic these days, figured it deserved its own post. Not even 48 hours since it was released, the Google+ app has been updated to version 1.0.2 and now includes the ability to sign in using multiple Gmail accounts. Also, noted in the changelog was some minor touch ups in regards to the UI and even a “spiffy” new icon (looks the same to me?). So, if you’ve been too busy messing around with Google+ on the web, be sure to open up your Market app and update the app.

Android Auto is one of the better, but less widely used features, hidden inside Android. This is because the driver-friendly UI required a compatible head unit to work, but soon you’ll be able to open and use it like any other app.
