Talking [APP] [NEWS] Google Drive on HOX - Now Available! :D

Just unlocked my HOX and saw that their was an update notification.

It was Google Drive!!!

Apparently, the Docs app has been updated to Google Drive.

Still exploring. More to follow.

Update 1: You get 5 gigs of storage space to begin with.
Update 2: It is ICS optimized (no annoying 3 dots). Why the Docs app wasn't optimized becomes clear now.
Update 3: The app is a bit rough around the edges. Stuttery scrolling and some low-res graphics.
Update 4: Drive supports upto 30 different file formats. Some (like PSDs) cannot be previewed by the app but can be in the web version.

Me too, but when you have 49GB for free on Dropbox, why bother? :P

Simple - Docs. That's my primary office suite. And I'm sure it will have a lot of other (free or otherwise) goodies to offer as well. Basically the ability to sync with all of Goog's services.

Also, Collaborative editing - A boon for people like me.

Support for 30 different types of file in the browser – including Photoshop and Illustrator files

Upto 16TB of purchasable space

It could go on and on... ;)

How is this accomplished, I need this.


Not to get off topic, but I will probably be getting Google Drive, as I do use Google docs quite extensively when working with teams. Looks pretty cool!

You mention that only 30 types of files are "compatible" with Google Drive. Do you mean that only 30 file types are viewable, or only up-loadable?
