When Google Drive first arrived on iOS, one of the chief complains with the app was that users could only access (in essence view) files stored in the cloud. But thanks to the 1.1 update, Drive is now even a little more tempting to use than Dropbox with its ability to create and edit Google docs and folders right from your iDevice. Editing functions include your basic font styles, size, color (font background color can also be changed), justification, bullet points and more.
Google Drive has landed on iOS. First launched by Google back in April, Drive is a cloud storage service like Dropbox that will allow its users to store their files on Google’s servers – as well as on their PCs and Macs. And with the release of the iOS app, Drive users can finally access and view their documents, images etc. on the iPhone and iPad. The app also supports offline viewing, file sharing with collaborators, starring or important files and more. If you don’t have a Drive account, you can get started here, where all new users get 5 GB free of storage space. Google Drive is a free download and now available on the App Store.
