Google+ updates mobile UI, still no iPad app

Google (s GOOG) rolled out a new design for its Google+ mobile site Monday morning, which now looks more like the Google+ apps for Android and iOS. (s AAPL) That’s especially good news for Google+ iPad users, who have been waiting for a native app for the social network for some time.
The new UI not only features a visual refresh, but also comes with some new features that should make it easier to use Google+ with a mobile browser. One major improvement: Individual posts can now be reshared with the click of a button.
These changes come a few days after Google+ rolled out some major localization, making the service available in more than 60 languages including Zulu and Icelandic. Still missing is a native iPad app for Google+. The service is available via an iPhone app, but iPad users have to upscale the app, which is a pretty horrific experience. A Google spokesperson told me that there is “no update” on the availability of an iPad app.
Check out a few screenshots of the mobile web app as displayed on the iPad below:
