5 Reasons You Should Try the Google Plus Mobile App for Android

I know, Google+ is a vacant ghost town with no users that coerces people into signing up for accounts.  Why do you even need another social network to suck away at your precious time?  That’s the thing though.  The Google Plus app is more than just another social network.  It is more like a spine that runs through Google’s services, connecting them all together.  Here are 5 reasons why you should take a look at this app.

1) Instant Photo Uploads – The whole reason I started using Google Plus.  Instant Photo Upload is one of the best mobile features, ever.  Snap away all the photos you want and your phone will automatically upload them to the cloud, with unlimited storage (at 2048 px), for free.  If you want to store full size photos, Google gives you 5 free gigs of cloud storage.  No need to worry about taking up precious storage space on your phone.  No need to connect your phone to a computer to download.  The photos just upload like magic in the background.
2) Google Local – Find what’s going on in your area, complete with user and Zagat reviews.  Local allows you to search for restaurants and attractions, narrowing down what you want by category, distance, and rating score.  It also links seamlessly into Google navigation, so that once you have decided where you are going, you can get quick turn by turn voice navigation to get you there.
3) Messenger – Google’s mobile data messaging service.  Like any other data messenger service, the user on the other end has to be running the app for you to communicate.  Once you have harassed your friends into using it, you won’t want to go back to regular text messaging.  Notifications show up in the notification bar, similar to a text message.  Messenger allows you to quickly and easily create group messaging rooms where you talk among several friends at one time.  The app will show you when your friends are in the messenger room, and also lets you know when someone is typing.
4) Hangouts – The ability to do one on one or group video chats with up to 9 people right over your smartphone.  It also works across platforms, so users can be on their smartphone, desktop, laptop, or even land line phone.  Perfect for those family members that you would like to see, but don’t necessarily want them to come for a visit.
5) Everything in one place – The Google Plus app delivers everything in a very smooth, intuitive, visually pleasing package.  Large pictures and animated gifs draw you into your stream, and option menus slide in and out from the sides to give you the maximum viewing area for the task at hand.
The Google Plus App for Android is a very slick, polished app. Other features include communities, events, and the ability to manage your profile and circles right from your phone.  The app is fun to use and having so many ways to communicate and be social in one place is very handy.

Concerning the Nintendo Movement…

The interwebs have been a-buzz as of late in regards to a movement that is being created. The movement I’m referring to is the, for lack of a better name, “Nintendo Movement”. It is being led on different fronts by a select few personalities from Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter. From what I gather their ultimate goal is to get a large enough collective voice to get Nintendo’s attention so that their concerns can be addressed. Of course, as is the case with any uprising, there are the naysayers that think the movement is just a bunch of disgruntled Nintendo fans. The opposition is comprised of two sides; those that don’t want any changes made, and those that think the movement will ultimately be in vain. Being a big Nintendo supporter myself I can’t help but analyze the motives behind it all, nor can I ignore the apparent rift it is causing in the Nintendo fandom.

Well I can confidently say that both sides will be left disappointed. Neither the movement, nor the naysayers, will achieve their hopeful result and I’ll explain why in the following paragraphs.Let me address the naysayers first since this will be the simplest to explain. This group of Nintendo fans is delusional in a sense if they think everything is okay the way it is. Whether they want to embrace it or not there will be future changes made concerning Nintendo and the fate of the Wii U (These changes aren’t linked to the movement so do not make that connection at all). In addition, they will always be on the losing end because change is natural in any corporation in any industry, and those that fail to die off. Furthermore, the naysayers don’t really have a voice.

This is not to say they aren’t vocal, but they are vocal in a way that has no impact. Rather than post to Miiverse, tweet Nintendo, or post to Nintendo’s Facebook to make it known they want no changes made, they merely rant away on Youtube or Facebook groups to those involved in the movement. Those sorts of actions won’t yield any results because you aren’t addressing Nintendo directly, and Nintendo is not scouring social media to find every comment or post with their name in it. In fact this is hurting the community because it discourages those that are on the fence about joining the Nintendo community from making that move because they don’t want to bother with the drama and confusion. So I say to those against the movement that you are going about being a fan all wrong, and not supporting change is not supporting the company you love. This is why you will all be disappointed.Now to those in the movement *facepalm*. While I applaud the effort, and genuinely hope you prove me wrong, you guys will be most disappointed.

There are numerous factors that I took into account before making this claim. Firstly you have to accept that you are being opposed not only by Sony and Microsoft fans, but also by your own fellow Nintendo fans. This dynamic as I stated creates confusion. In the case of the movement however, it creates confusion for Nintendo, because now they have to make a choice; do they continue as they are since there is a demographic that is pleased with the current state of things, or do they invest time and money in making changes to keep fans that are losing confidence in the company. Secondly, and all Nintendo fans need to accept this, is that Nintendo will always retain it’s Japanese business culture despite having HQs in other countries. I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with Japanese business culture, but all you need to know is that tradition is held to the highest standard. Nintendo’s tradition is what drives it to always be unique, and it is what drives the quality that you get from their products. There is not much a bunch of Westerners can do to sway the minds of successful Japanese CEOs and Presidents. Some may argue that this isn’t true because Sony is Japanese based and they cater to the Western audience. I would agree if it was not for the fact that Sony’s HQ in America is its own corporate entity, and it does not answer to its Eastern counterpart like Nintendo of America does. If you don’t understand the odds stacked against you at this point then the last thing you need to consider is the industry at large. Gaming has become something larger than life, and unfortunately the consumers’ voices have been lost in the hustle and bustle of devs and publishers frantically pacing about their offices in hopes of producing the next big blockbuster gaming experience.

This isn’t just the case for Nintendo fans either, because we all have a whisper of influence in company matters. The only recent exception to this was the Xbox One DRM always-online debacle. The Nintendo Movement supporters do have one minor advantage though, and that is the fact they want things that Nintendo will likely do anyway. A short list includes Miiverse/Network enhancements, more sharing options, and select games. But in the grand scheme of things they will fall short of their major goal, which is to have Nintendo meet their list of demands. They hope to succeed in modernizing an industry dinosaur that still creates some of the most memorable games, while also giving gamers a new way to play.I would like to close this piece by saying that there is a way for everyone to win. This is no simple task since compromise is a trait most humans haven’t mastered, but one can be optimistic. For this to work the naysayers need to join the movement. Why? Because they stand to lose nothing by Nintendo adding on to what they already enjoy.

If everything is fine just the way it is then just ignore the changes and continue to enjoy your Nintendo console as you’ve been doing. As for the movement, you need to meet the naysayers in the middle by not asking for changes drastic enough to ruin the experience they are already enjoying. This outcome is doubtful since there are radicals on both sides of the causes, which is why I am convinced their disappointment is unavoidable.

On a personal note, I didn’t start playing Call of Duty until I bought a Wii U and wanted to experiment with “new to me” games and to put the online abilities through their paces.  It has since become a weekly endeavor for my girlfriend and I to delve into matches online on the Wii U where we have the fortune of each having our own screens.  Seeing some more stability and the Free Fall map finally appear is nice to see, and I’m eager to try it out.
