If you are a freelance web designer or developer who loves working with HTML5, you can expect a better experience when using the new Google+ app.
In an interview with Ars, Google VP of Product and Operations David Burke confirmed the new platform will bring more than 5 million new hires to the platform and will bring even more developers to the fold.
Burke described the new app as the most powerful and flexible platform in the world to work with, as it will allow designers and developers to easily and seamlessly combine their skills and expertise to build compelling experiences across the web.
“The power of Google+ is that it enables designers to build more robust apps and more compelling experiences,” Burke said.
“We’re also making it easy for developers to integrate with Google+.
They can take an existing product, put in a lot of effort into their designs, and get more control of the platform.
This is a powerful tool that will help designers and web developers collaborate.”
Google+ launched in late March.
The new app will be available in the U.S. starting next week, with a new U.K. version to follow later in the year.
Burke said Google+ was already getting a lot more attention than any other platform, and that was something the company wanted to make sure to emphasize.
“Google+ has always been a platform that people have wanted to get to, so it was great to have it become more mainstream,” he said.
The app has already received critical praise from Web designers and the content industry.
The website Ars, which is the home of many of the site’s popular web content, praised the new tool as “a fantastic addition to the Google+ experience.”
“It will be fantastic for designers to be able to build products that they can sell, to be more flexible with their projects, and to be even more creative with their designs,” said Ars’ editorial director Jason Mottram.
“A huge part of my job is helping to make the experience for the millions of people who use Google+ even better.”
