So I wanted to mess about with the Google+ api for Hangouts. I wrote a little dice rolling app perfect for those D&D games people play using Google+ Hangout!
That’s what everybody is using Google+ Hangout for, right?
Right now it’s stilll a little convoluted to make it work. When the Hangout loads you’ll get a screen asking permission for the app to run. Then it’ll most likely reload the Hangout. Then you’ll get a little drop down message by the address bar asking for permission again due to ‘insecure content’ (that’d be the images). Once you agree to all that then… possibly another reload of the screen… then click on the Apps button and then Recent tab within the Google+ Hangout to see and use said custom app.
A bit of a pain in the ass to get there, but they’re still working out the kinks.
