    Anyone using Google+ yet on the Thunderbolt? Seems like a great way to get pictures and videos from Thunderbolt to computer without cords. Any other uses anyone has found for it? It's kind of bare as of yet, and the location service seems to be WAY off track from where I am.

    Dropbox is a great way to get pictures from the TB to the computer without cords. I have not got an invite yet. The location is probably not google+ but just the GPS on your phone being off

    The only way I figured out to invite people (that haven't received an invite from Google) is to get your gmail address and then I will tag you or share a picture with you (I would just do a pic of a Thunderbolt phone) then I think you will receive an invite to join. Then you sign up on your phone or your computer. If anyone want's to have me try to invite you send me a message with your gmail address.

    I'm in G+ too. I'm definitely head over heels for it. pm me if you want an invite. I'll 'share' a post with you and get in you in. I've invited something like 75 people already.

    I got Google+ too, but I am experiencing a lack of people to fill my circles with. All of my friends are stuck on Facebook. And if you don't have friends on the site, it makes it good for nothing.

    PM me if you want an invite, and FYI the way this "inviting" thing works it can only be a gmail account from what I have heard.

    The more people we invite, the better off the service will be, assuming we don't overload any of the servers or something.

    The one thing that may draw me to use this service over facebook (which I will continue to use) is the "circles.." I really like how you can chose to share with certain people much easier then Facebook. I hate using my T-Bolt to update a picture to Facebook or a status that I then think "oh I only want certain people to see that.." I know there is probably a way to do this in Facebook but the interface is not as intuitive for this.

    Has anyone figured out the "Huddle," feature on their phone yet?

    I'm liking it so far. Can't wait until more people are on it.

    I got an invite because a friend of mine just added my gmail to one of his circles and then shared something. However, I tried this when I got my account set up and it wouldn't work, probably cause they're only letting a few people in at the moment. I hope it goes public soon because honestly I think the features make it better than facebook

    I just sent "invites" to the people who have PMed me as described here: Tip: How to Invite Friends to Google+ - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    Just click on the link in the email that said "View or comment on ****my**name**** post"

    Edit: If it doesn't work from a desktop, try clicking that link in the email from your phone. I have heard of several reports where trying to log in from a desktop has ending with troubles, and the web app will work

    the auto upload feature is great if you take lots of pics, and i believe it even syncs with picasa which i haven't used since today. So far it seems very good considering this is like a "beta"

    Someone sent me an invite already, but it won't let me join because they're currently "at capacity". I'm holding on to the e-mail until it opens up again, of course, but just a heads up that, even if you get an invite, you won't necessarily get in on it right away.

    I sent out a ton of invites to people but I think they are at capacity. Keep trying the e-mail you got until you get in and I will try again tonight or tomorrow.
