Issues with Google+ search

If you're using the app you might have noticed that the Google+ results aren't very good. Unfortunately that is an issue with the API. It does not seem to return the same results you would get by using the web and searching G+. I hope we'll see some announcements and new APIs for G+ in the upcoming IO and I'll look into this issue after the event.

Another issue with the current G+ API is that it limits requests to 10k per day with my API key. The app doesn't have that many users yet that it would be a problem but it might at some point. If we hit the limit it means that it stops returning any result. I hope to find a solution to this asap.
