Google Drive Android app update brings document scanning with OCR

Google Drive for Android has been updated. This update brings a handful of new features as well as mention of bug fixes and visual improvements. Perhaps more exciting here though, Google is pushing this update as one that will "make creating and accessing your stuff on-the-go even easier." One of the new features is document scanning, which will allow you to 'scan' by snapping a picture using the camera on your device.

Google triples free cloud storage for Drive and Gmail to 15GB

Free cloud-storage is something more and more people are looking for these days. With Dropbox, Box.net, Google Drive and more fighting for the top spot. Today Google's pulled a big move to beat the competition and have just tripled what they'll be giving away for free. Previously, just like Dropbox and others, Google Drive users received 5GB of free cloud storage. Starting today that will triple to 15GB.

Adobe entering the hardware space with Project Napoleon and Mighty

When it comes to Adobe the first thought of many is likely to be something software related. Up until now, that would have been the case. Moving forward though, it looks like Adobe will have Project Napoleon and Project Mighty. Both of these are hardware items and yes, they will both work together. Napoleon deals with a digital ruler and Mighty deals with a cloud connected pen.

Verizon Cloud service launches to protect customers “valuable” data

While there are plenty of cloud solutions available for smartphone users, it seems that many users go without that peace of mind. The reasoning here could be as simple as the person not knowing about the available options, thinking they are hard to use or maybe that they are expensive. Needless to say, we are firmly in the camp of backing up our data and it seems as if Verizon Wireless is also sharing that same opinion. Enter the recently announced Verizon Cloud service.

LG Cloud global rollout to continue next month

LG originally announced their cloud storage service just about a year ago. The LG Cloud was initially made available for those in South Korea, Russia and the US on May 1, 2012. Since that time we had known LG was planning to have this service available on a more global basis, however it wasn't until today when they released the details. In short, the LG Cloud will be available for an additional 40 countries beginning next month.

Google Drive update touches on group collaboration and offline access

Google has rolled out the latest update for Drive and while we tend to keep focus on the mobile side, this is an update that touches on the desktop side. Needless to say, we can hope that some of these Drive changes make their way over to mobile. That being said, this Google Drive update has made it quicker to see information about others that happen to be working on a particular file.

Google Mail and other app services restored

If you've been frustrated this afternoon with many of Google's services failing to work, you weren't alone. This morning Google and many others confirmed that they had an outage causing some issues and a disruption in service for many things like Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar sync and much more. However, the company confirms that service should be fully restored.

Gmail, Drive and other Google apps experiencing service issues

If you happen to be seeing any issues with Google services this morning, rest assured in knowing you are not the only one affected. Granted, that doesn't necessarily make it all good, but the issue is more widespread than just yourself. In fact, a quick check of the Google Apps Status Dashboard is showing some service disruptions and also a service outage.

MEGA launches “experimental” mobile site ahead of native app

MEGA launched a while back and did so with a rather large cloud offering of 50GB worth of storage space. While things appear to have been going well with MEGA as a whole, the one piece they are still lacking are the mobile apps. Of course, we want to see a MEGA app for Android, however we hope they launch on multiple platforms at the same time. We have yet to learn when a native (and official) MEGA app will be available, however the mobile experience has recently been improved.
