Google+ photos on your Android phone

If you’re switching  from iPhone to Android, you have picture-perfect problem. Over the course of your time with the iPhone, you’ve taken tons of photos  with its stellar iSight camera. You certainly don’t want to lose those pictures when you make the move to Android, and need a way to get those pictures on your new phone quickly and easily. Fortunately, Google’s Google+ social network will have your pictures backed up to your Google account in no time if you follow these steps.
