It’s just two months left since Google stepped into the cloud storage service. On April 25 Google unveiled Google Drive a service similar to Dropbox, Box or SkyDrive. Google Drive offers 5GB free online storage space where you can store your different types of files for easy access from anywhere. It’s up to you whether to stick with the free 5GB storage or buy more by paying. Is this service is only for storing files online?. Nope! Google Docs, the online office suite from Google is now a part of Google Drive. It opens the possibility of online collaboration. But initially the service was limited to the web, desktop and Android. It’s because the official Google Drive app was released to these platforms only. The official Google Drive app was badly missing on iOS, one of the popular OS powering Apple’s mobile devices. Google was working on that and as they announced during the release of Android Google Drive app they have now released the iOS variant. Yep! Google Drive for iPhone and iPad is now available for free download.
Last night, it’s a fact that we get release announcements from Google when it is midnight here in our country as we are living in the other side of the globe, Google unveiled the official Google Drive app for iOS devices. It was the day 2 of Google annual I/O conference that they choose to announce the same. Also another important update is that Google Docs now supports offline editing.
What you can do with the official Google Drive app on your iPhone or iPad? The list of devices on which you can quickly access your files are now extended to one more platform. Now you can Sync files across your desktop and all your devices. Google Drive offers offline support. So when you don’t have internet access you can access your Drive stored files on your iPhone or iPad. Your Drive stored files can be opened with supporting apps installed on your device. Enjoy the power of cloud storage on the go.
