Google Announces Google Drive For iOS and Chrome OS

Google Announces Google Drive For iOS and Chrome OS. Google Drive app provides access to Google’s online storage service on iOS, with the ability to view, search and edit files. Google showcased the app’s ability to identify text in an image using OCR technology, as well an ability to find images based on their content.
Google Drive is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch running iOS 5 or later and gives users 5 GB of free storage with the option to expand it for a fee.
In ChromeOS, Drive is integrated tightly. It becomes your file system. All content is synched across all devices, keystroke by keystroke.
What if you don’t have an internet connection ?
Announcing Google Documents works for editing offline. You don’t have to enter an “offline mode”; it just notices and handles it gracefully. In a demo they turned off the internet, made a change, closed the document, turned on the net, opened the doc again, and instantly the changes appeared on 3 different screens.
Users can create, edit, and share with dozens of applications using the Google Drive SDK. We just updated to version 2 today. Additions show up in the More menu in Google Drive. Files created with 3rd party applications are stored alongside all other types of files. You just click on the document, for example a Lucid Chart, and it opens. Drive developers have found that users spend more time in their apps when integrated with Drive.
At the hub of this cloud experience is Google Drive - a place where you can create, share, collaborate and keep all your stuff. Ten weeks ago google launched Drive and in 10 weeks, more than 10 million users have signed up. Today google introduced more capabilities, including offline editing for Google documents and a Drive app for your iPhone and iPad. Drive is also seamlessly integrated into Chrome OS. With Drive available across Mac, Windows, Chrome OS, Android and iOS, it’s even easier to get things done in the cloud from anywhere.
