Google Drive is now available on iOS (Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch). The app allows you to view PDFs, photos, videos, documents and anything else stored in your Drive while you’re on the go. You can also search all your files, add collaborators to documents, and make files available offline to view them even without an internet connection. I gave it a quick test drive (get it?) on the new iPad and found it to be an excellent viewer for documents, but you currently can’t edit or create docs like you can on the Android version. Speaking of, Google also updated Drive for Android with several feature upgrades and improved performance. Check out the change log for both apps below.
Note: Google also released the Chrome Web Browser for iOS.
