Definitely very pretty with a few new features for the end user to enjoy. I personally like the new changes but some people don’t like change, at all. The stand-out bits I like are…. Comment previews and portrait pictures show in full. Very clean, crisp and the expanded stream view is pleasant to view all the great content from your circles.

  1. What happened to all the color? New app is gray and drab. :/

  2. The content provides the colour for me. The update has been a success, going by the general feedback on our page.
