Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps for Android updated

The Android version of the Google Drive app recently received an important update. A lot of Android users have been giving feedback to Google and the Internet giant listened to demands. New features include support for important three major Open file formats like .odt (documents), .ods (spreadsheets), and .odp (presentations), search for files right from the app, and access and sharing of custom maps. These enhancements make the recent Google Drive app version a better and more efficient tool for work and productivity.

New Chromebook owners getting 1TB of Google Drive storage

As always, Google is becoming more generous than ever. Why, the Internet giant is giving Chromebook owners a special bonus for the holiday season. No, it won’t be giving away Nexus device but Google is giving 1TB of Google Drive storage for new Chromebook buyers for a couple of years. It’s not unlimited but the 1TB is a lot of storage you won’t be able to use it all up.

Open files from Google Drive on to your preferred program

The rise (and permanence maybe?) of cloud storage has practically changed the way we use and interact with our files. Google Drive in particular has allowed you to preview and edit files from your browser without having to open the particular program associated with it. But what if you actually wanted to use a program that is not supported by Google Drive, but is necessary for you to work on that file? A new extension is now available for Google Chrome which will give you the option of opening the file to your preferred compatible program.

Synchronize Ultimate syncs files thru cloud, free unlock in XDA

The Synchronize Ultimate app does exactly what it says it does – that is, sync your folders across devices and cloud storage accounts. It’s not a new idea, but when you realize the app’s versatility of being able to sync to and between devices and a range of 35 different cloud storage services, the possibilities begin to open up for this app.

Gmail update attaches files directly from Google Drive

While your phone’s native email app may still be your go-to friend when it comes to ease of use, there are still some things it can’t do, especially if you’re a heavy Google user. The tech giant continues to improve its whole ecosystem of apps and functionalities with its latest update to their Gmail Android app. Now you can attach files directly from your Google Drive, which saves you from a few steps more than what you usually do.

Theftie app gives device theft security for free

A lost smartphone – whether by theft or by a more benign misplacing – is always a problem for handheld device users. That is why there are a lot of security/locate-my-phone apps out there in the market. The issue is in finding one that is intuitive and smart as it is practical for the user. The “Theftie – Find My Phone” app is not the perfect handset security app, but it has potential, and it is free to download.
