Google has just updated their official Drive app for iOS, making it easier to navigate between documents and collaborate with others upon them. Not only can you now comment upon Google Drive documents within the app, you can quickly swipe through images.
The beef of the update is obviously the new commenting feature. One of Google Drive’s biggest strengths is that it’s a bang-up collaboration environment, and the new commenting feature allows you to create, edit, reply or resolve notes to other users in shared documents on the go. All you do is tap, hold and release at the point where you want to leave a comment; upon release, you can also swipe to highlight the specific text you want to comment upon. Pretty slick.
The image swiping is a nice little touch too. Google Drive now acts more like other iOS photo apps, allowing you to easily swipe through multiple images in a row. Considering that previously you had to exit each photo to go to the next one, it’s a big improvement.
Google Drive is available for free from the iTunes App Store.
