    I thought this feature was crazy cool, but when i finished uploading the pictures (it said finished in the settings menu of my phone), I went on my desktop to check out the photos and they were not there. I'm sure i was looking in the right place, the "Photos on your phone" tab in the photos section. Even now, nearly 3 hours later, the photos are not showing up. I guess g+ is still in field trial, so I'm being patient right now, but i was wondering if anyone else had this issue.

    I uploaded the photos from my phone and they show up on the desktop app.

    It only uploads pictures from the default directory on your phone which is the location where the camera stores them. If you move them around to different folders, it doesn't upload those.

    Mine are slowly showing up. The app says that it will take a while...I did have to elect the setting a few times before it started working properly. You can tell by the rotating arrows in your notification bar if it is working.

    Windows Phone has this built in since release in late 2010, and iPhones have had Photo Stream since iOS 5 released. With Shared Photo Streams Google+ Instant Upload is useless. I don't even own an iDevice right now (used to, therefore I have iCloud access) but I use Photo Stream from the iCloud Control Panel in Windows 7 to share my photos in lieu of this. Saves me from needing yet another Social Networking account.

    I think that's why Google hasn't really hurried on getting it into their iOS app. The Google+ app ranks quite low in the App Store, which leads one to believe it may not really be all that popular there. Those people will use Photo Streams and Shared Photo Streams anyways, which are now completely usable even from a Windows PC (good move on Apple's part, actually).

    The instant upload is flakey as well. It will upload everything in your camera roll even if you don't tell it to sync existing media. It damn near killed my battery because days after I activated it it did that for a ton of images. I was getting more Instant Upload notifications than you can shake a stick at. And after I deleted it on the web, it would reupload them, which boggled me quite a bit...
