Google Drive Android API released

Cloud storage is one of those quirky things we’re all supposed to love, but do we really accept it? Often, cloud storage is left as a workaround, and not seamlessly integrated, making it a tough proposition for some. Google has introduced a Google Drive API for Android, which should make the process of saving and sharing files from the cloud a lot easier.

Android camera RAW support and native burst-mode confirmed by Google

Google has confirmed they are working to add RAW image file and native burst shot mode support. This isn't yet available for developers to take advantage of, however it does come as a nice follow-up to the report that surfaced earlier in the month on this very subject. The confirmation comes by way of Google spokesperson Gina Scigliano who mentioned that "Android's latest camera HAL (hardware abstraction layer) and framework supports raw and burst-mode photography."
