It seems that the native apps for Google+ are still buggy ones, particularly the one for iOS. I have tested the app and found it a herky-jerky one, so I preferred to go for mobile web version.

The latest refresh offers a smooth hopping and out experience along with a quicker and simpler +1 items. Unluckily, if you prefer to use the web version, you will definitely miss out the chance to enjoy on native-only features for Google+, such as instant photo and video upload and Hangouts. The mobile web version also makes it easy for you to switch between Gmail, Calendar and Search.

There is a common that people will continue to prefer the mobile web version unless Google+ team seriously though about creating versions particularly for Android and Apple tablets. Google needs to work really hard to promote its native apps so as to keep pace with the rapidly growing tech market.
