I'm in the same boat because I have a Google Apps account, so Google Profiles (and thus Google+) isn't available to me (yet?).



One of the guys working on this said "Please tell your friends using Google Apps that we're working to make Google+ available to them. Sorry for the delay - we need to do it right!" Teams from across the company have been working very, very hard to make sure all the consumer apps are available to Google Apps account users: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/11/ten-times-more-applic...


I always feed like a second class citizen with my google apps account.


I've seen the phrase "second class citizen" used a lot recently and I usually think it's a bit over the top.

In this case though it seems about right - I'm a total Google fanboy but as an Apps user I'm just not allowed to use their biggest new product!


Maybe this is their indirect way of giving you incentive to move to a Google account? (Don't feel bad I have google accounts and do not have g+ access yet.)


There's nothing stopping you from having both.

With a decent IMAP or exchange client, you can easily browse multiple mailboxes. In fact, multiple emails is probably the best reason to use a non-browser app for email.


Google has multiple sign-in support natively as well, I use it to switch between a couple Google apps accounts and my normal Google account. http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&#...


It really sucks, though. Between Calendar and Docs, there's often a conflict where it won't log me in to the second account.


This was my experience 6 months ago (I ended up using multiple firefox profiles for months because of it). Just tried it again this week, and I haven't run into the "derp derp derp one half of your accounts aren't allowed to see this"-type error yet.


Great, will give it another go, in that case. There's one little niggle still. Signing into a delegated Gmail account, there's no option for Labs. I want my signature to appear above the message I'm replying to, but this doesn't seem possible.


Tell me about it. Ah well, our time will some day.


This was the last straw for me and my Google Apps account. I thought it was a good idea at the time, but I'm sick of being an afterthought. A couple nights ago I migrated everything over to my @gmail account. I even moved my phone over, which meant I had to wipe it completely and re-buy a couple apps! But it's all done, and now... I feel... good. I'm a first-class Google citizen again!


This is the reason that I've always kept both my google apps account and my gmail one. It can be very frustrating that some services aren't available otherwise.


This is why I'm not keep on the apps phenomenon - I'm still getting rid of DRM and I don't need more.

I'm sure there are a lot of good programs I'm missing, but (from a Debian-user's perspective) nothing is worth that sort of hassle.

The mobile market still seems bent on packaging users as the commodity. First holding them ransom to carriers (remember when people had to pay for new ringtones?!) and now to app-store dealers. Nobody makes the phone they really want to use, they make the phone they can best monetize.


Same situation here. I'd love to know if this is ever coming to Apps accounts.
