It’s what many Mac users have been waiting for. A simple standalone application to keep track of Google+ while users get on with other things. It’s the first of many to come – even the creator claims that this is an interim application while he works on something even better to replace it. But get in now and you’ll remember to keep an eye out for when there’s an update released.

So What Is This App?

Basically, the application is a simple way to access the web version of Google+ using your browser. For now. In the future, this developer will be working on something altogether more sophisticated. In the meantime, this is still pretty handy for those of us who like to have a separate application for all the different things we’re keeping an eye on during the day.

How Does It Work?

Just open the application and log into Google+ as you would using any browser. When you’re browsing Google+ and clicking on links, they’ll open up in a new browser tab.

Why Not Just Use Fluid?

You could go to the effort of setting up your own Google+ application using Fluid, but it would take longer than downloading and running this application.

What Else Could I Use?

As far as I know, this is the only Google+ client for Mac so far. The developer is working on a more sophisticated Google+ application for Mac as we speak, so it shouldn’t be too much longer to wait for something with a bit more meat on it.
