Google has announced a trio of new apps today; Docs, Sheets and Slides. Essentially, Google has broken down the Drive app. Docs and Sheets are both available in the Play Store from this very moment, and Slides is said to be coming soon.
Owners of the new HTC One (M8) on AT&T have hit a snag when it comes to the free Drive storage. Each new handset arrives with 50GB of Google Drive storage, which users are prompted to take advantage of just after startup. Those with AT&T aren’t able to, which HTC notes is a bug they’re working on.
Last week's piece on our favorite system tools seems to have struck a chord with our community, particularly regarding the rather heated topic of data storage for mobile devices. Today, we take a closer look at the different options available to mobile users as well as their advantages and, of course, their limits.
Google really wants you to use Drive. So much so, they’re offering a pretty great deal on cloud storage. With a newly announced pricing plan, we can now get more storage for less out of pocket. Google also says that those who are already paying for storage have nothing to worry about, since they’ll be migrated automatically to a new plan.
Google has announced a change to Docs and Spreadsheets within Drive. Users can now utilize add-ons, which bring more native functionality to your workflow. There is also a marketplace specifically for the add-ons, which can be found from within a document or spreadsheet.
HTC has introduced the HTC Advantage plan, which offers owners of an HTC One device a few cool features. First, cracked screens can be replaced one time, free of charge. HTC is also committing to “future software innovation”, as well as “content solutions”. What do those all mean? We’ll tell you!
Google has just announced the release of the latest version Google Play services, giving Android developers more tools in their arsenal. While the release is, of course, intended mostly for programmers, several new features will be of interest to end users as well.
Google has updated two apps, with both Drive and Newsstand seeing improvement tweaks. The cloud storage solution is getting a quicker way to scan and upload, while Newsstand gains support for more languages. Both also come with the ubiquitous ‘bug fixes’, but also important and timely updates to increase usage.
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.
Google has just announced this year's first major update to Google Play Services. While the new features in Google Play Services 4.1 are more directly addressed to app developers, the benefits, of course, trickle down to end users as well, especially those that rely on the cloud for their gaming and data storage needs.
