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.

Dropbox acquires iOS email app Mailbox

Dropbox has announced an acquisition, Mailbox. We understand that some may not be as familiar with Mailbox given, at present, it is available only for iOS users. The Mailbox app launched for the iPhone a short while back and it seems to be all the rage in the iOS world. We have yet to see if the hype that surrounded Mailbox will turn into anything other than people wanting something they could not immediately get.

SugarSync 2.0 update brings new features and a new look [Hands-On]

We mentioned back in December when SugarSync released the the v2.0 update in beta form and as of a bit more recently -- that app has graduated from beta and is now available in the Google Play Store. One point worth noting with the version number though, v2.0 refers to SugarSync as a service. The Android app itself has jumped to version 4.0.0. Either way, a SugarSync app update is available.

Dropbox releases Sync API for Android and iOS

Thanks to the brand new Sync API from the folks at Dropbox all those Android and iOS app developers workload just got a bit lighter. Today the Dropbox developer team has announced their new Sync API that will allow apps to seamlessly and effortlessly integrate sync right into their apps. More details can be found below on the new API.

Mega Manager app provides on the go access to your Mega account

It looks like Kim Dotcom's Mega service now has an Android app. Albeit, an unofficial Android app. The app is called Mega Manager and it has been launched in an alpha phase, which somehow seems fitting given the actual Mega service is still carrying a beta tag. The Mega Manager app is available for free and going back to the app being in alpha, it comes with a reminder that it is still a work in progress.

MediaFire Android app lands in Google Play with 50GB of free storage

MediaFire happens to be one of the more well known cloud storage solutions available. And while they have a nice offer, 50GB of free cloud-based storage (and a 200MB file upload size), there has been one item that may have kept them from being fully adopted by Android users -- the lack of an app. That being said though, the MediaFire Android app has recently come available.
